The Gallium Pro is the flagship gold standard for Argon 18 road bikes. This bike is built with the same exact geometry as that Tour de France stage-winning machine for a lower price. A slightly lower grade of carbon keeps the price of this frame down while keeping it light and not taking away from what makes the Gallium great. Compromise is not an option with the Gallium. This bike will simultaneously stand out on the toughest climbs and on high-speed chases. If you are looking for top performance on the road, the Argon 18 Gallium will max out your potential.
The Gallium Pro is the lightest frame Argon 18 has ever created and this frame is not too far off that standard. Pushing the limit of their carbon lay-up has allowed Argon 18 to build bikes that just barely scrape by the UCI weight standard. They were able to accomplish this through 3D modeling and carbon molding, bringing this bike to the next level. Even the carbon fork of the Gallium has been improved to shave off even more weight. The lighter fork is still just as stiff as previous models, maximizing performance.
The fork as well as the rest of the frame have excellent stiffness, making the Gallium as great of a sprinter as it is a climber. The press-fit 3D offers three headtube heights. This range helps preserve five to 11 percent more frontal rigidity than standard spacers. Overall, this version of the Argon 18 Gallium is stiffer than any other Gallium model they have ever made.
The aggressive race-ready geometry of the Argon 18 Gallium has been dialed in over the years and tested in the biggest World Tour races. The refined seatpost is easily adjustable and more compliant than ever for a comfortable ride on an aggressive machine. This type of attention to detail has led to redesigned internal cable routing that is seamlessly integrated through the frame. The fork of the Gallium allows for up to 28mm tire clearance for more comfort and versatility.
If you are looking to build an incredibly fast and light bike at an affordable price, the Argon 18 Gallium frame is a great place to start. You will be able to use a huge range of groupsets and fit this bike perfectly to your body and preferences. On your Argon 18 Gallium, you will feel confident in any race stage. Climbing and closing gaps will be equally advantageous to you on this versatile and professional-level machine.
