At last, a road bike that doubles as a tri-bike for the cyclist who does the occasional triathlon, duathlon, or time trial. Launched in 2007, the Talon was one of the first-ever aero road bikes on the market and its still a cutting edge machine because it allows rider to choose either a road or triathlon-style position. And did we mention that it's made of carbon?</p> <p>Constructed of Kestrel's Enhanced Modulus Hybrid (EMH) carbon -- a combination of 800K and 700K carbon fibers and extensively wind-tunnel tested, the stays, seat post, and seat tube are aerodynamically contoured for slickness in the wind. You even get fully internal cable routing to ensure clean airflow over the entire bike. Some aero bikes can be tricky to handle but the proprietary Kestrel H-Stays are uniquely, asymmetrically shaped seat stays and chainstays and are designed to improve lateral stiffness and thus power transfer, while also supplying vibration dampening and better handling. Kestrel EMS Pro Aero Seatpost allows for the saddle to be mounted in a wide range of positions. When you're ready to go tri, move the seatpost forward and then back again for regular road riding. Why didn't everybody think of this?</p> <p>The components and cockpit are equally high standard. Shimano Ultegra throughout, with 22-speeds, as well as the justly lauded Oval Concepts saddle and ergonomic bars. Finally, each of the five sizes has unique tube lengths, diameters, shapes, and carbon layups to produce the best possible ride quality for every size rider. The Kestrel Talon will put wings on your back, regardless of what type of riding you do.</p
