Argon 18 Krypton Pro

Our Quest for the Perfect Ride

We designed the Krypton Pro to be a no-compromises bike that’s stable at speed, responsive under big watts, and smooth after a full day in the saddle – all on one of the lightest frames in the category. Road.cc. agreed when they awarded it 2019 Frameset of the year: “it certainly delivers on performance thanks to a low weight and plenty of stiffness, but factor in its immense comfort and slightly relaxed geometry and you’ll find this is probably one of the fastest endurance machines on the market.”

Features
Smart Cable Integration Sleek, Efficient, Aero. Our Smart Cable Integration system features a unique cockpit with fully hidden cables, integrated into the stem and steerer. Featured on the Krypton Pro, the proprietary steerer design (patent pending) allows for full cable integration with no frame modification. It also delivers aero performance with 2.5w saving at 300W. But as with all of our integration processes, we are driven first by usability: intuitive and smooth cable routing are primary characteristic of this system, meaning assembly and maintenance is kept easy and accessible. With stem lengths from 70mm-120mm available, achieving the right fit alongside aero performance is a key part of our approach to Smart Cable Integration. The stem can be swapped without having to bleed the system, also ensuring user-friendly setup and travel.
Maximum compatibility Our modular cable console allows for maximum versatility, to put the rider’s convenience first without sacrificing performance. Designed for both for electronic (wireless or wired) and mechanical groupsets, our system allows for user-friendly cable routing for maximum shifting and braking efficiency. Interchangeable console parts are easily swapped to ensure longevity of the frame as you upgrade groupsets.
Endurance Geometry All-day performance Our endurance geometry offers a stable and comfortable ride, while keeping true to the race-ready approach we have toward all of our bikes. Some of the key features of endurance geometry include a longer headtube for a more upright position, engineered to be easier on the back and shoulders for long days on the road; greater tire clearance for more confident handling and comfort; tweaked headtube and raked fork to adjust our hallmark precision handling to that wider tire size windows (28 to 32c); longer wheelbase for increased stability; and a lower bottom bracket, again for increased stability. Endurance geometry must balance the need for pedaling efficiency alongside the main goal of comfort and performance over long distances, for a stable, predictable ride.
Pro Level Layup When Only the Best Will Do We leave no room for compromise when we build bikes for the most demanding and passionate cyclists. We combine our unique expertise in carbon layup and aerodynamics, a true sense of innovation and the most advanced technologies in order to produce true references in the cycling world: our Pro level bikes.
The Optimal Balance of Comfort and Performance To achieve the optimal balance of comfort and performance for our endurance line, we needed geometry uniquely aligned with the demands of long-distance riding and racing. In conjunction with the best geometry, we also needed to optimise frame topology and carbon layup. Through extensive research and analysis of stiffness, resistance, and aerodynamics using FEA and CFD software, we designed frames and forks that offer exceptional vertical compliance and dampens road-induced vibrations. At the same time, they needed to remain impervious to lateral movement, thus ensuring maximum pedaling efficiency for optimal power transfer. Our Topological Compliance System (TPS), was validated by numerous iterations of frame and fork designs tested both on the road and in our research and development laboratory using proprietary vibration testing tools.
Argon Fit System Find Your Fit The Argon Fit System is designed to provide riders of all sizes with consistent performance and optimal positioning. Regardless of your build, gender or your riding style, our frames are designed so that your fit will always be efficient and comfortable, ensuring the ultimate in handling. We offer sizing from XXS to XL in all of our road bikes, and XS to XL in our Tri bikes, with each size approached individually from a design and performance perspective. While a lot of manufacturers optimise performance and weight targets for a medium size frame and simply scale up or down, we assess the performance of each size based on the individual character of that particular geometry. For example, even our largest frames have exceptional stiffness without excess weight, to avoid the 'dead' feel found in some XL frames. XS and XXS retain their inherent lightweight qualities, but without excess stiffness, avoiding harsh ride quality.
