<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Giant has revamped its Talon hardtail mountain bike for the 2021 model year.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The Talon is a key bike for Giant and can be considered the cheapest way to get onto a proper mountain bike from the brand (the <a href="https://www.giant-bicycles.com/gb/bikes-atx" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">ATX range</a> below it is more of a leisure bike designed for leisure rides and canal paths.)</span></p>
<ul>
<li><a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/the-best-mountain-bikes-under-500/">These are the best mountain bikes for £500</a></li>
<li><a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/best-mountain-bike-how-to-choose-the-right-one-for-you/">How to find the right mountain bike for you</a></li>
</ul>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">As a simple aluminium hardtail with a 100mm fork (with the exception of S/XS 27.5in models which get a shorter 80mm fork), the Talon features fairly typical geometry that makes it suitable for cross-country or less aggressive trail riding.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">It’s a touch steeper in its head angle and shorter in reach and wheelbase than </span><a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/news/2021-canyon-grand-canyon/"><span style="font-weight: 400">Canyon’s Grand Canyon</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400">.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">There’s a choice of five different builds for 2021 and each of those is available with the choice of either 27.5 or 29in wheels.</span></p>
<h2><span style="font-weight: 400">2021 Giant Talon frame</span></h2>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The Talon frame has been redesigned for 2021 and now features dropped seatstays. By lowering the rear triangle, Giant says it has improved comfort and saved weight.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Cable routing remains internal throughout and the 30.9mm seatpost keeps things simple for those who want to upgrade to a dropper seatpost. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">There’s room for up to 2.4in tyres on both 27.5 and 29in versions of the frame and all are built to accept racks, mudguards or a kickstand.</span></p>

<figcaption class="wp-caption-text"><span class="caption-copy"><i class="icon-arrow icon-camera-circle"></i> The more affordable Talon models such as this Talon 29 3 should make a great base to upgrade from for new riders.</span></figcaption><span class="im-image-caption"> <i>Giant</i></span>
</div>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The range starts with the £399 Talon 4 and Talon 4 29. It features the same 6061 single-butted aluminium frame as the rest of the range. </span><span style="font-weight: 400">A coil-sprung Suntour XCE fork delivers 100mm of travel (or 80mm on XS/S size versions of the Talon 4 29)</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">There’s a 2×7 Shimano Altus/Tourney drivetrain that’s paired to a Prowheel crankset. </span><span style="font-weight: 400">The wheels consist of Giant’s own brand GX03V rims and quick-release hubs and are shod in 2.2in Maxxis Ikon tyres. Tektro mechanical disc brakes are exclusive to this cheapest model.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">It’s great to see that all builds use the same 780mm wide Giant Connect Trail handlebar – it’s a width that many would have scoffed at seeing on a bike of this kind only a few years ago.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The next model up is the £449 Talon 3 and accompanying Talon 3 29. It’s basically the Talon 4 but with an upgrade to Tektro TKD 143 hydraulic disc brakes.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400">These bikes feature a fork upgrade to the SR Suntour XCT 30 HLO which is still coil sprung but now includes a lockout. The drivetrain is bumped up to 2×8 through the use of Altus and Acera components and the tyres move to more aggressive 2.4in Maxxis Rekons.</span></p>

</div>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The Talon 1 and Talon 1 29 retail for £649. These models get an upgrade to an SXC32-2  air-sprung fork from Giant itself. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">There’s still 100mm of travel unless you opt for the XS or S size 29er bike. The drivetrain is a 1×10 configuration that’s mostly from Shimano’s Deore stable and pairs a 30t Prowheel chainset with a 11x42t cassette.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The £849 range-topping Talon 0 and Talon 0 29 build on the spec of the Talon 1 but instead use a 1×12 Deore/Prowheel transmission with a 10x51t cassette. The wheelset retains the same rims but they’re now laced to Shimano sealed bearing hubs.</span></p>
