Argon 18 E 116 TT/Triathlon Frameset
Argon 18 triathlon bikes are known for their stability and accurate tracking through turns.
Embodying all the advantages of Argon 18’s Optimal Balance principle, the new E-116 is no exception to the rule. Built in the same mold, it benefits from the innovative aerodynamics research methodology used in developing the E-116
Argon 18 triathlon bikes are known for their stability and accurate tracking through turns. Embodying all the advantages of Argon 18’s Optimal Balance principle, the new E-116 is no exception to the rule. Built in the same mold, it benefits from the innovative aerodynamics research methodology used in developing the E-116.
The E-116 is an uncompromised racing frameset, the end result of an extensive development process that has called on cutting-edge science and technologies as well as sound cycling knowledge. An outstanding example of our prized Optimal Balance, the E-116 can help you optimize your performance too.
The E-116 is equipped with the 3D Headtube system, an Argon 18 exclusive. Easy to install and adjust, 3D replaces conventional spacers with a structural mechanism that allows for handlebar height adjustment without compromising front-end stiffness.
This device offers two main advantages:
A rider can fine-tune the bar height without piling up an excessive number of conventional spacers, leaving the frame’s rigidity intact. Thanks to 3D, a handlebar set at a 15mm height preserves 5% more stiffness over a similar conventional set-up, and this figure reaches 11% with a bar set at a 25mm height.
Since the 3D Headtube system offers three effective head tube lengths, a rider can set the right position initially, but can later revise this position as fitness, taste or riding style evolve over time.
