Integrated Disc Brakes
Argon 18 introduced the world’s first integrated disc brakes on the E-119 Tri+ Disc, completely hiding the calipers as well as the hydraulic cables and reservoirs, for a clear aero advantage.
Our integrated toolkit is located at the BB, the optimal position to provide easy access with no structural or performance penalty. The BB solution also provides the best results in terms of weight position, usability, and accessibility. The weight and placement of the kit doesn’t affect ride quality, being virtually imperceptible to the rider, even when out of the saddle.
Many toptube bento boxes are too small for the nutrition needs of a full Ironman. Athletes need to find a solution, so they often place this extra nutrition outside of the bento box – often simply taped to the frame - leading to an aero penalty. Our integrated bento box solves this problem by including a reservoir within the toptube.
Our collaboration with Mat Steinmetz from 51 Speedshop for the redesign of the E-119 Tri+ Disc cockpit resulted in a fit-first approach to provide maximum versatility and adjustability – and a focus on aero optimization of the rider’s position. Quite simply, the most aerodynamic frame possible won’t help if the rider cannot maintain the aero profile for a long race, such as a full Ironman. While our new bar can achieve a +5 cm.
