    Aerodynamic versatility.

    The 2016 Talon 105 Complete Tri Bike is Kestrel's answer to riders looking for a bike worthy of blistering fast time trial speeds with a touch of road bike handling that won't break the bank. Kitted out with Shimano 105 componentry and shipped with TT bars, this bike boasts ample position adjustability to step up for a wide variety of courses.

    Kestrel constructs the Talon from its Enhanced Modulus Hybrid carbon, a mix of 800K and 700K carbon fibers for a balance of lightweight stiffness, confident handling, and comfort to soak up road vibrations so you don't arrive at T2 feeling like you've been through 12 rounds. The rear triangle features asymmetric stays built to withstand lateral flex for efficient power transfer while further dampening road vibrations. Each Talon utilizes size-specific tube dimensions, shapes, and layup to preserve consistent ride quality across the range of frame sizes.

    Have questions about this product?

    does it come with an aerobar? if not, is there an option to add it during purchase?

    Hi Lito, This bike does not come with an aero-bar. We have a wide selection including some from Profile Designs that we can certainly include it in the purchase. Please feel to reach out and I'd be glad to make it happen. Scott Gartman Expert Bike Gearhead 801-204-4588 sgartman@backcountry.com
