With a significant improvement in aerodynamics, the E-119 Tri is the successor to our flagship E-118 Next, a bike that has made its mark on the international IRONMAN™ circuit. True to its commitment to offer the best triathlon bikes in the world, Argon 18’s newest powerhouse is the perfect blend of exceptional aerodynamics, light weight and flawless integration, with proprietary brakes concealed on both fork and seat stays to minimize frontal area while improving ease of access for maintenance. Wind tunnel tests have demonstrated the aero advantage of the E-119 Tri compared to certain competitor’s models that have been historically quoted as references
Peak performance. Your ride to excellence. The triathlon bike that will propel you to victory.
The ultimate in aerodynamic performance
Exclusive Argon 18 brakes
Non-UCI geometry tailored to the needs of triathletes
I’m really excited about this bike. It’s beautiful, very well designed, and I suspect it will be hugely popular this year.
But where this E-119 Tri surprised me more is by its rear brake system, which functioning is totally pathbreaking.

Maximum tire size*
*Our measurement refers to the physical maximum measurement of which there is appropriate clearance for the tire, which is different from the size listed on the tire. Variabilities in tire size is common. Not all 25C tires were created equal. Thus there is a high likelihood that a 25C tire will fit in a bike that has 25mm of appropriate clearance, but not guaranteed.
Canadian brand Argon 18 is looking to take on Cervélo with the launch of four new triathlon bikes across two new platforms - the E-117 Tri and the E-119 Tri - the latter of which is claimed to be faster than a PS in real wind conditions.
