It is with great pleasure that Argon 18 announces the renewal of the agreement with Canadian triathlete Jeff Symonds. Ever since his debut on the international circuit, this prodigious athlete from British Columbia made a spectacular rise. He represents the future of the sport, and he is in the prime of his life.
With Symonds, a rising star on the Ironman scene, and many other triathletes, the Montreal-based high-end bicycle manufacturer consolidates its position as a world-leader in triathlon. This partnership also announces a thrilling 2016 season.
In 2015, Jeff Symonds had a good season. He won the IRONMAN Asia Pacifica Championship and finished 4th at the Challenge Half Melbourne and IRONMAN 70.3 Geelong. His 2016 season is most promising. And he means business.
“I am thrilled to be continuing on as part of the Argon 18 Team!” says Symonds. “I’m particular excited about Argon 18’s dedication to triathlon and their commitment to innovating with the best bike possible. Argon 18 has provided me not only with a technological advantage in the form of world leading aerodynamics and power transfer but also has provided bikes that make you want to get out and ride them. I am particularly excited to be riding the E-119 Tri+ this year. The best in class aerodynamics have been optimized for the real world conditions I will be facing in competitions. The increased level of integration makes for a faster, cleaner, more user-friendly bike. Plus, it looks amazing!”
