Ready for your launch pad? Push yourself to the limit and discover a stronger, faster you.
The perfect bike for those looking to take their IM training up a notch — without breaking the bank.
Argon 18’s proprietary 3D System is an integrated solution that extends the headtube for more positioning options.
Tri and TT bikes prioritise aero performance, and the geometry of these bikes reflects this. To allow the rider to achieve an aggressive aero position, the seat tube angle is much steeper than on a traditional road bike. This geometry is designed to put the rider in a more forward position. Not only does this help with aerodynamics, it also can help save a triathlete's legs for the run, as it places less stress on the quadriceps. While a TT rider doesn't have to worry about running a marathon after the ride, the same aggressive aero positioning is required to shave precious seconds off the course. Argon 18's triathlon and TT geometry maximizes performance while allowing riders to dial in their perfect fit to maintain that position throughout the race.
