New Limits - or No Limits

When you want to push yourself through that extra 50km, or take the steepest route to the top – and actually enjoy the views on the way up – or want to let go of the myth of the suffer-fest, this is your ride. And with a sub-12kg bike that handles, fits, and responds at the top of its class, it may provide all that even without the assistance of the motor. But if you want that bit of extra tailwind, it’s ready for you.

Ideal for

Those looking to level the playing field between friends, get back into the sport, or just want to stretch every ride as far as possible.

Core Technologies

3D+

For our newest generation of bikes, we wanted to push our 3D System even further by merging it seamlessly with the frame.

Argon Fit System

Argon Fit System is designed to provide riders of all sizes with consistent performance and optimal positioning.

Topological Compliance System

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.

Update: great bike...BUT...

By Christopher Booth from US, New York

My previous review was accurate, loved the bike, but once something breaks, you are out of luck. First the pretty bar tape was easily damaged, Argon told me to get it from the manufacturer who told me they only make & give it to Argon & Argon didn't provide it to me. Then more significantly, I damaged my rear wheel striking a metal object. Vision Team 30 couldn't give me a replacement, they told me they only make the 32 spoke wheels & give them to Argon. Argon would/could not sell me one. Advised me to get another company's wheel and build my current motor onto it. I did, and now I have a bike that is heavier and slower then the original and also had to use larger tires. So it is no longer agile, fast, and spirited. And its no longer road bike first, now its a typical e bike. I no longer have the bike I purchased. It was a fun 2 and a half months. I'm very disappointed that Argon doesn't stand by it's product. Had I known that, I wouldn't have purchased the bike. Chris Booth

This bike does it all!

Fast, responsive, comfortable, powerful and quiet! Truly road bike first, e-bike second. A spirited ride without e power. And when the climbing or headwinds hit, press the button and voila! All the power assist you need is there. I'm a load at 227lbs and the motor gives me as much or as little assist as I want. And the motor is super quiet. It blows away specialized and bosch. You can't hear it and if you don't scrutinize the rear hub, no one knows its an e-bike. I set up with tubeless tires & its great. Your customer service email is excellent as well. The bike exceeds all my expectations and makes cycling more fun! Thank you Argon for a superior product!

Love this bike

I previously owned an Argon 18 Krypton that loved so it was an easy move to the road Subito. Is is a great looking bike that at first glance does not look like an e-bike. It is fun to ride. I upgraded mine to include Di2 components. My only negative comments are about the charging port. It is hard to access on a small frame and could be better located. Also I would prefer a a toggle switch to allow going up and down rather than having to cycle through all settings to decrease the the support.
