2017 Argon 18 E-117 Tri
The E-117 was released at the same time as the E-119, but where the E-119 is not UCI legal, the E-117 is. It is built to be the every person’s bike. From seasoned professionals to new, young riders. There are a few reasons why this bike might have a wider appeal than the E119.
For one thing it is more comfortable. With the Press Fit 3D System, the headtube is adjustable in three positions (0mm, 15mm, and 25mm), so if you like to ride aggressively you can lower it, if you like a more relaxed position you can raise it. At the 25mm position you increase frontal rigidity by 11%. Also the seat tube angle is adjustable giving you the option to be aggressive or relaxed.
And this bike is UCI legal due to the shape of its tubes. It was wind tunnel tested, like all of Argon 18’s bikes, and it was proven to be every bit as aero as the E118. But it’s a little more traditional in the shapes of its tubes, they fit in the UCI’s legal 3:1 aspect ratio, making it a UCI legal bike.
Another standard feature is in the braking and the wiring. Because the brakes are integrated and the wiring is internal the cockpit and wheels are easily removed, making this bike simple to travel with- a big deal if you do several triathlons a year.
