For us a perfect ride begins with a layup that integrates the optimal balance of weight, comfort and stiffness performance points. Then we add a few more criteria, like a club ride that pushes the pace and nails the climbs, maybe a rough section to reach that perfect view, a few technical twists and turns on a long descent, and a full day to max out the miles. We made the Krypton Pro for this: a no-compromises bike that’s stable at speed, responsive under big watts, smooth after a full day in the saddle, and meant for cyclists who want to ride, ride, and ride. Informed by Astana Pro Team at Paris-Roubaix and ready to meet the demands of La Marmotte and L’Étape, the Krypton Pro may re-write the story of the perfect ride.
Aero still matters on an endurance bike. We didn’t add a single feature to this model which didn’t perform optimally across all our priority performance indicators, including aero. For example, our hidden cables offer a 2.5w savings at 300W.
870g through new layup development to optimise placement and selection of carbon fiber (medium, painted frame).
The right material in the right place
By studying endurance-specific load cases we oriented material precisely where needed to maximise vibration dampening, without losing efficiency in power transmission. This let us eliminate excess weight where not required.
Fully integrated cockpit with proprietary steerer for accurate routing and fully hidden cables, but designed for user-friendly maintenance and travel prep. Allows a 2cm adjustment range of stack and reach without having to bleed the brakes.
Tailored fit for all riders
Prioritises a tailored fit for all riders, with stem lengths from 70-120mm, and our 3D+ system which extends the headtube with three positioning options. This increases rigidity by 5% at 15mm and 11% at 30mm, versus traditional spacers.
Optimised for electronic shifting
Optimised for electronic shifting (Di2, eTap, EPS, WE) but can also accept mechanical groupsets through our modular console.
With its clean, smooth looks and some aero touches going on you'd easily think the new Argon 18 Krypton Pro is a full-on race bike. 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.
