Congratulations to you all!
Since their first involvement in track cycling, it was important for Argon 18 to establish their brand as the leading force in the sport and offer athletes the best products so that they can truly shine on the track.
As they followed the Rio Olympics, where the Electron Pro was introduced with the Danish Track team, all Argon 18 employees became active track cycling fans. It has become part of the Argon 18 DNA, and won’t stop until they've designed the future of speed. By combining all their know-how and expertise in performance, aerodynamics and technology – by taking all they have learned and achieved with their road and triathlon bikes – they have what it takes to design track bikes like no other.
Now working in tandem with partnered federations, the Argon 18 research and development team is right on track to go further than ever before. With all the work done behind the scenes, the brand are already looking forward to the next track season and what lies ahead for Tokyo 2020.
