Those who know, already know. Those who don't, should. Argon 18 machines have been dominating major triathlons for season after season. So, when the company launches an all-new, top-shelf model, we take notice. The new 2016 Argon 18 E-119 Tri+ represents years of on-course and in-lab development, including endless hours in the wind tunnel, trimming drag to be an impressive 15% lower than the E-118. A full raft of integrated features - including aerodynamic storage solutions and fully integrate front and rear brakes - also help in pursuing the goal of speed without compromise. This is a machine not for the unsure, but for those who are clear in their mission: to go as fast as possible; to compromise nothing; to be their own pinnacle.
Using CFD (or Computational Fluid Dynamics) in the wind tunnel, and integrating both front and rear brakes into the bike's aero structure, the E-119+ trims drag coefficient down to 15% over the previous top-dog and already-fast E-118.
Argon 18 includes their own high-tech cockpit with the E-119+, rounded out by their own high-tech aerobar and stem, and a proprietary seatpost that sits at a 78° angle for an aggressive pedaling position, yet offers a range of 56mm of adjustability.
The E-119+ includes mounts for installing a variety of accessories, but Argon 18 does the work of decision-making for you by designing and including their own, like a svelte but ample top tube bag, an easily-accessible saddle bag, and a straw that can be run from a tank of your favorite fuel.
Argon 18 knows that speed doesn't just come from raw power and aerodynamics. The E-119+'s carbon lay-up - while lighter and more aero than the E-118 - is also more compliant, for a smoother ride. And, because research has shown the hidden advantages of wider tires, the frame can also accommodate up to 25mm widths.
As with all of the high-end framesets we sell, we are ready to custom build your perfect E-119 Tri+. We’re fully stocked with the best components, cockpits, and wheelsets, and we're ready to help you build your dream machine.
