The new Argon 18 SUN perhaps arrives late on the season and on the market, given that we will hardly see it shortly in Italy and also in Europe, where the list price has yet to be established.
A racing bike that is not cheap, given the prices, but light and aerodynamic.
In some respects it lags behind, as for the non-integrated handlebar, which however allows for easier accommodation in the saddle.
The weight is contained, not at the absolute top, but no more than 50 grams away from the best bike in the category.
It has good aerodynamics and is certainly a racing bike suitable for powerful athletes who want a stiff and aerodynamic frame.
It's fine and strong on the flat as well as uphill, especially if the athlete is powerful. It does not seem to have any shortcomings compared to the best competitors.
