2011 Argon 18 E-80 Frameset

Manufacturers rarely make much of a R&D commitment in developing an entry-level bike, yet that’s what we did last year when we totally redesigned the E-80, which now shares the same geometry we gave the E-114 and E-112, as well as internal brake and shift cables, all at a fraction of the price.

  • The E-80 is fully compliant with UCI regulations governing the dimensions and technical characteristics of time-trial bikes, as set out in its technical bulletin published in July 2009.
