2017 Argon 18 Krypton XRoad
If you want a bike that can take you to from road to trail, take a long look at the Krypton Xroad. The new Argon 18 Krypton Xroad sports a slightly longer wheelbase, chunkier rear triangle, disc brakes, and a 32mm tire clearance. Not to mention the standard Argon 18 innovations such as The Press Fit 3D System, AFS, size specific geometry and Horizontal Dual System.
The frame is made of Argon 18’s 5007 HM carbon composite that makes for a stiff but light frame, making the perfect blend of rigidity and comfort. The Krypton Xroad exemplifies the advantages of Argon 18’s Optimal Balance, promising consistent power transfer and uncompromised comfort.
PressFit 3D System is Argon 18’s proprietary headtube design. The design allows for three different headtube positions, for relaxed or aggressive riding positions and levels of stiffness. At the 25mm setting frontal stiffness is increased by an entire 11 percent!
The Horizontal Dual System divides the bike in two along a diagonal line. Below the line, the bike is rigid, making sure every pedal stroke is captured with no waste of movement. Above the line, there is more flex to the carbon and less of it is used. This helps dampen road vibrations and allows for a more comfortable ride.
