    Summary

    Expirience with the Giant Talon 4

    Giant Talon 4 Review Aabove all, the Racebike von Giant just feels great. With 14,84 kg, the Giant Talon 4 counts towards the lighter bikes in this price range. The competitors are sometimes heavier. Giant is taking no risks when it comes to its bike handling. The moderate geometry data conveys a balanced handling. Compared with what the market offers, the seating position is neither super sporty, nor uber-comfortable. In the saddle of the Racebike von Giant, you´ll enjoy a moderate position. Considering that in the range under 600 Euro, hardly any other manufacturer makes a better bike for the same specs of wheels. Nice! A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 25 years warranty Giant sets the bar high!
