The Nitrogen comes as one of the most aerodynamic bikes in its category and from the streets of Montreal, where Argon was founded, comes a bike that is as good at racking up the kilometers, as it is cornering at breakneck speeds. All in all the Nitrogen has it covered, from optimal balance to its lightweight, speed-saving properties copied from its allie, the Galium, it has not made any sacrifices.
- Integrated BB86 bottom bracket
- Exclusive mold maximizing global stiffness: massive asymmetric chainstays, bulk bottom bracket and headtube areas
- Aero 3D Headset for perfect adjustment of handlebar height of every rider while enhancing front-end stiffness.
- 7003 HM carbon composite
- Monocoque construction optimized with Horizontal Dual System (HDS)
- Integrated fork crown race
- Innovative AFS GEOMETRY with BB Drop of 75mm (lower bottom bracket and shorter headtube)
HDS: Horizontal Dual System
The 2015 Nitrogen frame design was guided by our HDS principle, with structural properties that vary according to the stresses the frame undergoes. The tubes that make up a frame all have a different role to play in the bike’s performance. The required rigidity must be correctly apportioned in the most highly stressed parts, primarily along the lower areas, while a measure of absorbency is needed in the upper region to ensure comfort, while reducing weight throughout.
Power Zone Maximises stiffness with massive, asymmetrical chainstays as well as an oversized bottom bracket shell and head tube.
Comfort Zone The frame’s upper areas feature smaller, thinner tubes that absorb and dissipate vibration from the road.
Whether training or racing, HDS construction lessens fatigue thanks to the enhanced comfort while the lateral rigidity maintains maximum efficiency, transferring every last watt down to the ground.
The 2016 Nitrogen features the revolutionary press fit 3D Headtube system, an Argon 18 exclusive.
Aero 3D headset: Keep the adjustability, loose the drag; Press-fitted installation; Once the appropriate position has been dialled in, it can easily be modified at a later time, according to form or rider taste, or to accommodate a change of components.
