Bicycle Fitting Chart and "How to Video"
Kestrel's Talon Triathlon 105 Bike was the first frame designed to be either a road or a triathlon bike. The geometry is centered around the EMS adjustable seat post. This attribute makes the Talon just as stable and comfortable regardless of whether the rider is running the post at 73 degrees or 80 degrees. This is a feature that is not to be taken lightly because stability equals confident riding and when you are confident you are fast. The Kestrel Talon is an exceptional value and ready to race. Pretty cool looking too.
