Kestrel's Talon Tri offers everything you need to set a new personal record in your next triathlon or time trial. The Talon's Kestrel monocoque-carbon frame is light and stiff for excellent power transfer and handling. Plus, it features airfoil-shaped tubes, a rear-wheel cutout in the seat tube and internal cable routing for every aero advantage, even more efficiency and maximum speed. Up front, Kestrel's EMS Pro SL aero carbon fork smooths the road, hugs the corners and lets you nail your turnarounds. This wind-cheating sled rolls on a fine set of Oval Concepts wheels, while its trusty Oval Concepts/Shimano 105 compact drivetrain means easier climbing and the Tektro brakes have what it takes should you ever want to slow down. You also get a tasty stem, handlebar and seat from Oval Concepts and their 750 aero bars that let you achieve the perfect aero tuck. You'll also appreciate Kestrel's aero EMS Pro carbon seatpost and Vittoria's speedy Zaffiro Pro tires as you rocket to your best finish ever.

This bike was probably my best investment to date. For the price it is second to none. T2 handle bars, some Dura Ace components, full on carbon. This bike just goes fast. With the help of Mr. Ed and Jason, I have drastically improved my bike speed. They spent a lot of time with me to make sure this bike was dialed in for maximum speed for me. I for you looking for a TT bike, go no further.
