Argon 18 Gallium Pro 2014 Frameset
Make it lighter, more efficient, more comfortable, with better handling. Why not and thinking this way Argon have gone and done it. the new 2014 Gallium Pro is an upgrade to the previous version.
With a 15% increase in head tube stiffness thanks to the exceptional strength-weight ratio afforded by the new 7050 HM carbon laminate, response is even more immediate and handling is razor-sharp on any terrain.
The new Gallium Pro also sets a precedent for its exceptional positioning versatility. With proven, intelligently conceived AFS geometry in its six frame sizes, the new bike furthers this versatility with the new ASP-6500 two-way seat post, offering an extremely wide range of adjustment. Customization is taken another step with the 3D Headtube, expanding the possibilities for pinpoint-perfect handlebar positioning, all without losing any of the frame and fork's desirable performance characteristics. When all of these positive attributes are taken this far, that spells “race winner”... or Gallium Pro.Optimal Balance, the perfect combination of light weight, rigidity and comfort is what guides Argon 18 through its design and development process.

NEW ASP-6550 carbon seatpost
Variable offset of 15 or 25 mm.
- 27.2 seatpost diameter
- 1.8 seat collar
Benefits: Flexible positioning for a custom fit (180g, 45g less than 2013 model).
NEW 7050 HM carbon composite
Benefits: Advanced proprietary carbon fibre composite formula with all new lay-up enables and enhances our Optimal Balance concept.
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% at 15mm & +11% at 25mm.
Ga31 Pro specific monocoque carbon forkwith Integrated fork crown race and carbon drop out.
Benefits: Built specifically for the frame it is paired with, our forks maximize OB-the perfect enhancement to every frame. Integrating the crown race allows us to eliminate extra parts while saving weight (350g).
Integrated BB86 bottom bracket
Benefits: Standard developed for wider stiffer frames, provides overall better frame performance and less weight.
One sku with 2 options, with internal cables or Di2
Benefits: No additional kits or parts required to convert so it can easily evolve with the rider’s needs.
Innovative AFS GEOMETRY with BB-Drop of 75mm (lower bottom bracket and shorter headtube)
Benefits: AFS geometry ensures an easy, accurate fit & best possible position for people of all shapes and sizes while a lowered BB increases stability & handling-especially at high speeds.
Monocoque construction featuring Horizontal Dual System (HDS)
