Argon 18 E 116 2014 Frameset
E-116 frameset is a high tech machine that is not only light but handles well. It's an all out competition bike.
Included in frameset is frame, fork, headset, seatpost, brake calipers and levers.
The end product of an elaborate and intense R&D effort in aerodynamics, the E-116 benefits from the same aero-efficient frame shape as the flagship E-118: both are crafted in the same mold, developed using cutting-edge CFD aerodynamic computer-modeling software followed by actual wind tunnel testing. This bike slices through the air like a stiletto. Its lines suggest power and efficiency... high efficiency. Guided by our Optimal Balance design philosophy, the 6105 HM carbon formulation has been tailored to offer that elusive mix of low weight, comfort and stiffness. The R&D effort didn't end at the frame, but went on to create an aero fork with integrated brakes slotted into the fork's trailing edges and under the chainstays, hidden from the wind. A two-way reversible carbon seat post lets you fine-tune your position, then stays put. Last but not least, the 3D Headtube, which lets you select from three head tube heights for every frame size, for further positioning versatility and increased front-end stiffness and responsiveness. The E-116 can evolve along with your athletic progress too: if your flexibility is a little less that ideal, you can start with a taller head tube setting, gradually lowering it over time to a more aero stance.
The E-116 can evolve in other ways too: EPS, Di-2 and mechanical groups can all be fitted or swapped at any time, with no need for any extra parts. Racers work hard toward their goals. We thought it would be only be right for us to put the same kind of effort into developing a bike that would do them justice. Here it is, the world of the E-116, uncompromised performance for your benefit. Enjoy!
Optimal Balance, the perfect combination of light weight, rigidity and comfort is what guides Argon 18 through its design and development process.
E116 monocoque aero carbon fork
Benefits: Built specifically for the frame it is paired with, our forks maximize OB-the perfect enhancement to every frame. The E116’s is lighter & more aerodynamic than previous models.
2WAYPOSTASP-7000 reversible (76°/78°) carbon seatpost
Benefits: TT or Tri fit: flexible positioning for each type of rider.
Argon 18 exclusive lighweight seatpostclamp
Benefits: Newly designed lighter & simpler seat clamp saving weight & enhancing simplicity.
Argon 18 exclusive integrated aero brakes
Benefits: More responsive braking and superior aero profile
3 headtube heights integrated to every frame size for a race or relaxed fit
Benefits: Simple & precise adjustment which provides increased front end rigidity of +5% at15mm & +11% at 25mm.
Monocoque construction featuring Horizontal Dual System (HDS)
Benefits: Performance where you want it, comfort where you need it.
Innovative AFS-Tri geometry with BB-Drop of75mm (lower bottom bracket)
Benefits: AFS tri-specific geometry addresses the biggest source of drag; the rider. The AFS approach ensures the rider can maintain a proper aero position longer through an easy,accurate fit for people of all shapes and sizes.The lowered BB provides more stability & better handling-especially at high speeds.
One sku with 2 options, with internal cablesor Di2/EPS.
Benefits: No additional kits or parts required to convert so it can easily evolve with the rider’s needs.
Integrated BB86 bottom bracket
Benefits: Standard developed for wider stiffer frames, provides overall better frame performance and less weight.
Aero-frame optimized by virtual windtunneldevelopment (CFD)
Benefits: Using a virtual rider in motion during the design phase allowed Argon 18 Engineers to achieve the optimal aerodynamic profile.
6105 HM carbon composite
Benefits: Our proprietary carbon fibre composite formula is specifically designed to enhance and benefit the OB concept.
