Description

About Argon 18 Electron Pro Frameset

The Argon 18 Electron Pro Frameset is designed and built with gold in mind for bona fide track cyclists.


Designed with Gold in mind. Argon 18 paired with Denmark, one of the best Pursuit teams in the world, with the goal of shaving a precious few seconds off the clock. The Argon 18 Electron Pro Frameset endures monstrous power output in the velodrome and yet, handles with absolute precision at break neck speeds.
Hit the boards with Electron Pro, their flagship track bike.
Technologies
Optimal Balance - Optimal Balance is the design and fabrication philosophy behind all of Argon 18’s bikes. It is the subtle alchemy of lightness, rigidity, comfort and aerodynamics.
The result: a high-performance bike that is easy to ride, that handles well when climbing and is quick off the mark. What’s more, it provides the rider with a feeling of satisfaction without any unwanted fatigue. Much more than a simple idea, Optimal Balance is the result of over 25 years of research and development—expertise which reinforces Argon 18’s reputation as a world leader in high-end bikes and technology.
Integration - The cycling industry is highly competitive and rapidly growing. In this market full of innovation and integration, Argon 18 is leading the way with technological solutions that are ever more effective. Agon 18's solutions are tailored to the specific needs of cyclists—both men and women—at all levels of competition. Moreover, they're constantly evolving innovations are easy to both implement and use. Evolution is the key to adaptation.
Aerodynamics - In high-performance cycling, every second counts and aerodynamics can change everything. That’s why any reduction in drag—not matter how small—is of utmost importance. By testing their bikes in true wind conditions, they ensure that all their products are infinitely more accurate and competitive.
AFS - Argon Fit System - Argon 18’s expertise in geometry is based on Gervais Rioux’s vast experience as a professional cyclist and a bike shop owner as well as extensive research and development. The Argon Fit System (AFS) is designed to provide riders of all physical dimensions with consistent performance and optimal ergonomics. No matter what your morphology or your racing style, your positioning will always be efficient and comfortable, ensuring the ultimate in handling.
Positioning and Geometry - At Argon 18, they design their bikes by breaking the frame down into eight distinct sections, each with a specific role. As the length of the frame increases so does the length of each section. This preserves the bike’s well-balanced proportions and ensures that all their frames, regardless of size, have ideal ergonomics and flawless handling.
HDS - Horizontal Dual System - With its Horizontal Dual System (HDS), Argon 18 has succeeded in combining rigidity and comfort, qualities that are typically seen as mutually exclusive. The basic idea is simple: their frame tubes are each designed for a specific purpose.
Features
Collaborative development with danish olympic team - Designed to meet the needs of the most demanding athletes - bronze medal in the team pursuit, bronze medal in the omnium and olympic record in the individual pursuit at the 2016 olympic games
Performance through integration - The integrated front end was designed to increase aerodynamic efficiency and minimize deflection of the head tube under load, thus giving every advantage to the competitive athlete
Versatility by design - A modular cockpit design allows you to easily swap between drop bar and pursuit bar (optional)
Custom designed anti-rotation saddle rail clamp - Ensures the saddle stays put under the highest power output

More About The Manufacturer Argon 18

Argon 18 is a Canadian cycle manufacturer founded in 1989 by Gervais Rioux in Montreal, Quebec. The name is derived from the element, which is number 18 on the periodic table of elements; it's also one of six natural noble gases. After retiring as a rider, ex-Olympian Rioux opened a bike shop, where the brand was born. In 2001 they produced their first carbon frame and the brand is now distributed in 31 countries. Argon 18 sponsors German pro cycling team Bora-Argon 18 and debuted at the Tour de France in 2015.
