2017 Argon 18 Nitrogen Pro
The Nitrogen Pro is built for people who want to go fast, and then go even faster. Every feature of the design is made with speed at the forefront of every decision. Some of the features of this blazing fast bike are a lighter frame at just 830g, a new aerodynamic carbon AHB5000 handlebar, the Press Fit 3D System, size specific road geometry with an aero profile and hidden front and rear brakes.
The innovation that goes into Argon 18’s frames is stunning. At Argon 18 they separate the bike into eight distinct sections, each with its own purpose. As the frame gets longer, each section gets adjusted. This keeps everything in proportion with ideal ergonomics and first in class handling. In addition, Argon divides the frame into two zones along a diagonal line. In the lower zone the tubes are made with more carbon for maximum rigidity, especially in the bottom bracket. The tubes in the upper zone use more flexible and less carbon to dampen vibrations and ensure maximum comfort.
The AHB5000 handlebar is made to be as aerodynamic as possible. The goal is to minimize the frontal area and thereby maximize airflow. It is sleek and the one piece construction gives it a 30% aerodynamic gain over traditional round handlebars. Modular stem and optional spacers allow for 20 possible sizing configurations. The reach is 92mm and the drop is 125mm.
And you can alter the positioning of the handlebars without adding weight, a major bonus of the AHB5000.
With the Press-Fit 3D system it is possible to extend the headtube to 3 different heights for every frame size without spacers. And you can increase rigidity by 5% at 15mm and 11% at 25mm. This is substantial and it just shows once again Argon 18’s total devotion to innovation and speed.
The Argon Fit System, (AFS) is an exciting feature of Argon 18 bikes that makes for a fit that feels custom made. No matter what your size is, there will be a bike to fit you. And regardless of size it will have the road geometry and aero profile to make it fast.
One of the best features of the Argon 18 Nitrogen Pro is the hidden front and rear brake. Hiding the brakes cuts down on drag and makes for a faster ride.
