The Aero bar Feature
This latest Kestrel Talon bike supports Oval Concepts clip on aero bars and a base bar mainly for triathlons. This makes it an ideal cycle not just for roads but also for triathlon in case that’s what you need this bike for.
It also comes with an 11 speed FSA Metron bar end shifters along with a Shimano 105 gear system which ensures that you are able to change gears with ease.
All these parts make sure your ride remains tension free and that maintenance needed is less. That’s a good thing because not everyone can repair their own bikes.
