The Talon SL takes Talon’s hyper-engineered refinement to the next level, sharing the Talon’s slick shape and road-holding geometry but with a layup schedule optimized for our 800k high-modulus carbon. Talon SL puts the Talon’s razor-honed ride, ruthless sprinting and climbing efficiency into afterburner. There isn’t a more versatile, capable speedster available at any price.

Carefully hand-laid 800k fibers are fused into a structurally perfect, 2.4-pound frame that is a road racer’s dreamship and a time trialist’s no-holds-barred weapon of choice.

Talon SL—versatile speed without compromise.
