For when the route is unpredictable – but the ride must be solid. Head way off the beaten path with this gravel racer featuring performance-driven geometry derived from Argon 18’s legendary World Tour bikes. Go wherever the day takes you with assured handling and optimal power transfer, to control the terrain regardless of the surprises it may throw at you. This is a bike that offers supreme confidence alongside racing behaviour, and is as playful and responsive on mile one as mile one hundred.
ALL TERRAIN HANDLING · With an eye toward ride quality, the Dark Matter features seatstays designed to flex and dissipate shocks, and allows for 45c*, to offer maximum traction and comfort on all surfaces.
SEAMLESS INTEGRATION · Fully integrated 3D+ system delivers all the handling and stiffness benefits of the original 3D system in a streamlined package that merges seamlessly with the frame. That means you get three head tube extension heights for every frame size: 0mm, 15mm and 30mm.
RIDER DESIGNED · Gravel geometry provides fork rake specific to frame size, to allow for tight turn clearance on more technical runs.
