Argon 18's Electron track frameset is built to lap the velodrome at record-setting speeds. It's made from triple-butted aluminum with a carbon fork for amazing stiffness and responsiveness. Characteristics such as a short wheelbase, true track geometry and their HDS frame-tube optimization leave no doubt that this is an exciting ride. For even more speed, the Electron features aerodynamically shaped tubing including a deep rear wheel cutout. And, the CNC machined rear dropouts have stainless-steel inserts for durability and a secure wheel hold.
As shown in the illustration above, Argon 18's Horizontal Dual System (HDS) optimizes the two key frame zones for the ultimate ride. The lower zone (power zone) is designed for lateral rigidity to deliver 100% of your power to the road. Then, in the upper zone (comfort zone), the frame is tuned for excellent vertical compliance and vibration damping. This sweet combination results in awesome acceleration, superb climbing, precision cornering and a ride so smooth you won’t want to stop.
