main technologies

gravel geometry

Gravel throws unique challenges to riders, therefore it demands unique frame characteristics. Our gravel geometry is based on our endurance geometry, which is derived directly from our performance road racing series, meaning handling, responsiveness and race-ready positioning are paramount.

3D. The perfect combination of handling and stiffness.

We believe that a good fit is the key to optimal performance. Argon 18's proprietary 3D system is an integrated solution that extends the steerer tube for more flexible positioning options. Three steerer tube positions are possible for each frame size, increasing stiffness by 5% at 15mm and 11% at 25mm, compared to traditional spacers.

Argon adjustment system. Find your fit.

The Argon Fit system is designed to provide riders of all sizes with consistent performance and optimum positioning. Regardless of your build, gender or riding style, our frames are designed to always fit efficiently and comfortably, ensuring the ultimate in handling.
