What’s the Right Tri Bike for You? E-118 Tri+ vs E-119 Tri+ Disc

Argon 18 has two top-notch tri bikes. Which one is right for you?

Feature Walkthrough w. Hans Christian Tungesvik

Argon 18 ambassadors, Hans Christian Tungesvik, has ridden both bikes and are in the below video giving you a walkthrough of features of the two bikes - from a rider's perspective.

E-118 Tri+: Heather Jackson

Excels at:

  • Technical, twisty and climbing courses
  • Low, aggressive positioning
  • Lightweight layup
  • Versatile (UCI-approved/TT inspired)
  • Disc brakes

“I chose the E-118 because I am able to get into a low, aerodynamic position, but also a position I know I can hold and be comfortable in for the full Ironman distance. My position on the 118 is one that I've been racing for the last two and a half years, so I feel confident in it. The courses I gravitate toward included a lot of short, steep hills to get up and over and I love the responsiveness and snappiness of the E-118 when climbing.”Heather Jackson

E-119 Tri+ Disc: Sam Long

Excels at:

  • Full IM distance, fully loaded with hydration & nutrition
  • Full integration: toolkit, hidden brakes, bento box
  • Advanced engineering for optimized aero tube shapes
  • Easily adjusted cockpit
  • Disc brakes

“What sets this bike apart is the attention to detail, such as the truly integrated front and rear disc brake calipers which allow the bike to be faster. It handles incredibly well and cuts through cross winds supremely well. Finally, it is easy to work on.”Sam Long
