Despite the tightly calculated price of the Talon E+ 1, Giant manages to integrate the battery into the down tube.
At steep sections, the somewhat weak Giant motor requires a lot of initiative from the rider. The Giant SyncDrive Core gives off a well-rounded riding feeling. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Talon E+ 1 , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Talon E+ 1 V2 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (3000) .

As the bumps get bigger and rougher the average SR Suntour fork limits the downhill fun. Especially heavy riders should be aware that the Shimano only decelerates poorly. Shifting and components still leave room for improvement. Other providers dig deeper into their pockets for these assemblies. When it comes to the geometry, Giant does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability. The scale stays at 22,3 kg with this model. That makes the Talon E+ 1 one of the light Einsteiger-Bikes.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Giant Talon E+ 1 V2

With a simple brake system and a poor groupset, the Talon E+ 1 definitely has weaknesses. Nevertheless, it remains a solid all-rounder with a wide range of abilities , thanks to a fantastic handling. With 25 years of guarantee, nothing can go wrong in the long run.
