ARGON 18 Electron Pro

Latest build out of the shop is this stunning Argon 18 Electron Pro Track bike. The Electron Pro was developed for the Danish National Track Team for the 2016 Olympic Games. It did not disappoint with a bronze in the Team Pursuit, bronze in the Omnium and an Olympic record in the individual pursuit. Not bad if you ask me. Now the official bike for Team Canada, it won’t be long before you see some friends of PRW riding these bad boys onto the podium while wearing a maple leaf on their backs.

Well we know that it is a fast bike, but to me I don’t give it a thumbs up till I build one. A lot can be said about a bike by how it goes together, ask your local mechanic what bikes they like to build and that tells you a lot. The Electron Pro is no exception, well thought out in all details and the lay up is tidy. No cursing required to get this machine together makes for a happy build. The integrated modular front end has endless possibilities for fit which makes customization to the rider in both pursuit and bunch positions a breeze. Plus it looks FAST no matter what. Oh did I mention it has a threaded BB? Win win I say.

Build Spec: Electron Pro medium frame, 3T Scatto Bar with 3T Carbon LTD stem, SRM Track Cranks, Izumi Chain, Fsa Track Pro Rings, Pro Stealth Saddle, Mavic Comete Track disc and a Mavic IO to finish it off. Turns left REALLY well. Don’t worry kids this is not a display bike and will be raced hard. Coming soon to a track near you…
