2013 ARGON 18 E-112 FRAMESET
Argon 18 is pleased to present the E-112, by now a modern classic that has contributed much to the company’s reputation internationally. Developed alongside the iconic E-114, it has been the weapon of choice for champions such as Samantha McGlone, Luke Bell and Anna Cleaver.
The E-112 is also the choice of an impressive number of triathletes at every level worldwide. Blessed with spectacular lines reminiscent of a stealth fighter, the E-112 was made to go fast…very fast. With Argon 18, you’ll discover the Optimal Balance of light weight, efficiency, comfort, all for the optimal expression of your athletic talent.
AFS Triathlon/Time Trial Geometry
AFS, with its intelligent take on a triathlon geometry, lets the rider easily set the most effective position, which in turn, makes it possible to stay on the tri bars more constantly, thanks to the ultra-stable ride and precise tracking through turns. With the E-112, staying in the aero tuck becomes possible even in challenging technical sections and on fast descents; this is how the E-112 helps you cut your times.
Stack height: a correctly proportional head tube length for every frame size
Every frame size features a correctly-sized head tube, making it easier for the user to set the appropriate position according to the optimal hip angle, regardless of the individual’s flexibility.
The best aerodynamic profile can only be achieved when the rider is well positioned on the bike; this is what AFS guarantees
As with the E-116, the E-112 is equipped with the 3D Headtube system, an Argon 18 exclusive. Easy to install and adjust, 3D replaces conventional spacers with a structural mechanism that allows for handlebar height adjustment without compromising front-end stiffness.
Enhanced positioning versatility and superior front-end rigidity
An Integrated Design
From the drawing board to the road, the E-112 was conceived as a unit, with all its elements exhibiting complementary dynamic characteristics. Its many owners have commented on this “all-of-a-piece” impression that translates into a predictable, solid ride in even the toughest conditions. Apart from the monocoque 5655 HM carbon frame, the E-112 consists of:
Wind Tunnel-Validated Aerodynamics
In wind tunnel testing with the wind at 40 kph, the approximate speed of the top triathletes at an Ironman distance, the E-114 showed an aero advantage of up to 11% over the E-80, depending on wind yaw angle.
An 11% aero advantage in a triathlon amounts to a bike leg trump card…
The aero qualities of the bike itself are only half the story; the better part of aerodynamic efficiency has to do with proper rider positioning. This form of aero efficiency comes courtesy of the Argon Fit System geometry, implemented here in a triathlon/time trial version.
5655 HM Carbon Composite
Argon's proprietary carbon fibre composite formula is specifically designed to enhance and benefit the OB concept.
