Argon 18

2020 Argon 18 Dark Matter Frameset

The Dark Matter features a gravel-specific monocoque carbon frame. It is aerodynamic while giving you a high enough position to maintain stability over difficult roads. The front of your frame includes a carbon fork with clearance for 45c tires. This is the same clearance as typical gravel bikes, but the Dark Matter has a longer wheel base than most. That fork contains hidden fender mounts to keep your wheels safe on any road. The fork is longer than that of a typical road bike with capacity for disc brakes.

2020 Argon 18 Krypton GF Frameset

Argon 18 created the Krypton GF to have a fast bike capable of handling all roads. Pretty much what you’d expect from a Gran Fondo bike, which is what GF represents. This is an evolution of their endurance platform to make it more comfortable, more capable, and ready for bigger tires. It also boasts disc brakes.

2020 Argon 18 Krypton CS Frameset

Argon 18 created the Krypton platform to handle a wide array of conditions in comfort. A fondo bike, a cyclosportif bike, that sort of thing. This is the Krypton CS, short for CycloSportif. It’s an evolution of their endurance platform to make it more comfortable, more capable, and ready for bigger tires. It also boasts disc brakes. The CS and GF share a geometry, and molds, the difference being in the composition of the carbon-fiber used. The CS uses lower modulus plies, and thus needs more to yield the same ride qualities.

2020 Argon 18 Nitrogen Disc Road Frameset

Being an aero road bike with disc brakes makes this an ideal rouleur’s machine, of course, but it also means that it will work extremely well for anyone who loves to go fast and wants to have the confidence to push the pace knowing you will have the required braking power, rain or shine. Argon 18 has been a sponsor of some of the biggest, most successful teams in the pro peloton, and you can feel the very pointed, race-oriented mindset behind this frame.

2020 Argon 18 Gallium Disc Road Frameset

The founder and owner of Argon 18, Gervais Rioux, himself a former pro racer, started out handcrafting steel frames, so it stands to reason that he prizes the notion of being able to customize the fit of the bike to the needs of the rider, even if we’re dealing with the notoriously hard, or more accurately expensive, to customize carbon fiber. For the Gallium Pro the carbon Nanotech Tubing HM7050 has been used for the monocoque frame while the fork uses a Ga31 carbon.

2020 Argon 18 Gallium Road Frameset

If you are looking for a high-class racing bike that won’t break the bank, then the Argon 18 Gallium could be right down your alley. Super-lightweight, rigid and versatile, the Gallium will suit you whether you are looking to tackle tough mountain races or are primarily interested in conquering your local hills with ease.

2019 Argon 18 Gallium CS Road Frameset

We really like bike brands that tell it like it is and don’t hide behind marketing speak. A great example of that is the Argon 18 Gallium CS, which they are brave and honest enough to call their entry level carbon Gallium. In our book, that is a great thing because it becomes a challenge to sell an entry level bike without the manufacturer being willing to call a spade a spade.

2019 Argon 18 E119+ Tri Frameset

There aren’t too many events that can claim to be more grueling, more difficult, more demanding than a triathlon. To succeed, you need to excel at three different, often at time conflicting, disciplines. But the utter joy of crossing the finish line, knowing that you have accomplished an excessively difficult sporting event, can make all the preparation and suffering worth it. And when you turn to the Argon 18 E-119 Tri + as your machine of choice, then you will quickly find a lot of pleasure riding through the pain.

2019 Argon 18 E119 Tri Frameset

When designing the E-119 Tri, Argon 18 knew that it would have to be pretty special to be a worth successor to their super successful E-118 Next. And with an aerodynamic gain of nearly 15% compared to the E-118 Next, the Argon 18 E-119 Tri has certainly accomplished its goal.

2019 Argon 18 E117 Tri Frameset

Whether you are new to triathlons or are looking to improve your times on your local Tuesday night time trial series, the Argon 18 E-117 Tri will be the bike that will get you up to speed and cutting through the wind as fast as ever.
