Established in Montreal, Quebec, Canada since 1989, Argon 18 was originally formed of an R&D team guided by Gervais Rioux and North American racers, who designed the Argon 18 bikes. Rioux represented Canada in major international events, such as the Commonwealth Games in 1982 and the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul. In 1989, Mr. Rioux bought a small shop in central Montreal.
The ONEness concept consists of an integrated aero and stemless fork/aerobar combination that is designed to be aerodynamic and ergonomic. The design extends to the frame, fork, headset, base bar and aero bars, brakes and levers as well as a reversible carbon seatpost which can be 76 or 78°.
This consists of interchangeable structural spacers that extend the headtube’s height.
