3D+ : For our latest generation of bikes, we wanted to take our 3D System even further by seamlessly merging it with the frame.
Gravel Geometry : Our gravel geometry is based on our Endurance Geometry, itself directly inspired by our performance road racing series, which means race-ready handling, responsiveness and positioning are primordial
Topology Compliance System: To achieve the optimal balance of comfort and performance for our endurance line, we needed a geometry uniquely aligned with the demands of long-distance riding and racing. Along with the best geometry, we also needed to optimize the frame topology and carbon layup.
Argon Fit System: The Argon Fit System is designed to provide riders of all sizes with consistent performance and optimal positioning.
