Argon 18 Electron Pro (2106) Medium
Built with Miche Pista wheels and crank, Cinelli pista bar and stem.
If you’re familiar with Argon 18’s popular time trial and triathlon bikes, this Electron Pro frameset may have a familiar look. It’s built from the same mold as the E-114 TT bike, so it shares the distinctive aero tube shapes including the oversized and angular rear triangle sections.
But while the tube shaping is inherited, the carbon fiber material and layup of the Electron Pro are unique, custom built for the specific needs of racing on the velodrome. The 7051 HM carbon frame and EL99 carbon fork are engineered to be ultra-stiff and agile—emphasizing acceleration, power transfer and razor-sharp handling. There are also a few key geometry adjustments optimized for track racing.
This 3D System essentially gives you three different options for head tube length in every frame size. And Argon 18’s tests show that raising the bar 15mm with its 3D system preserves 5% more stiffness than conventional spacer setups, and raising it 25mm preserves 11% more stiffness.
The Electron Pro frameset comes as an integrated unit including a 1550-gram frame (size medium), plus a one-piece carbon fiber fork (550 grams, cut to fit size medium frame), and a reversible 275-gram carbon fiber seatpost with a choice of either 76-degree or 78-degree effective seat tube angle. The kit also includes an FSA Orbit IS-2 headset, alloy rear dropout with replaceable stainless steel inserts, and a stainless steel integrated chain tensioner.
