Argon 18 Technology: the Optimal Balance A bicycle must be light, rigid and comfortable. No more, no less. What really matters to us is to reconcile, in ideal proportion, these somewhat contradictory qualities. This goal and our ability to combine these divergent but necessary characteristics is what distinguishes an Argon 18 and makes it stand apart from other bikes. Our firm belief in our company’s values and in the directions we choose to pursue drives us to continually develop bike designs that are at once innovative yet classic, spectacular but refined. No more, no less.
