The Argon18 E-117 is an exceptional build for the customers first TT/Tri bike. A huge step up in efficiency and biomechanics when compared to the road bike set up for non-draft legal races. The E-117 offers exceptional adjustability with the rider position. Room to move as the rider becomes more comfortable with the tri bike set up.
The Sram Force AXS aero groupset offers a gear for every scenario out training or racing. The Fulcrum Wind 40/ 55 disc brake wheelset offers a controllable aero set up with outstanding brake control thanks to the Sram S900 HRD aero brake set up.
The SRAM Force groupset is equipped with a Quarq AXS Spider to gauge power during both training and racing, helping the athlete to better pace themselves. Similarly, the use of the Continental GP5000 TL in a tubeless setup provides the rider with the confidence in both grip and puncture-protection, all while providing additional comfort.
The huge range of adjustability with the Argon18 E-117 with the 3D fit headset system and paired with the Profile Design Wing 10a base bar / Sonic 35 aerobars was a great option for the riders first TT/ TRI bike. As the rider becomes more familiar with the new position and biomechanics we can adjust the rider to a more efficient position moving from a normal road bike set up for training and racing.
The 165mm cranks allow for improved efficiency and comfort due to open hip angles. This also helps the rider run during a race, as the hip flexor is not as tight. We have carried over the SPD SL pedal system from the road bike to simplify the componentry and allow for a mix and match of Bont Riot road shoes for long days on the bike and the Bont Riot TR+ for race day and brick sessions on the bike.
A Cobb Plus 2 saddle provides one of the contact points, while the Profile Design cockpit is covered with the Supacaz Super Sticky Kush bar tape. The Argon18 E-117 also takes a bento box along its top tube, in this case, the Profile Design ATTK IC model was used to allow the athlete to fuel during the race.
