Disrupters in the track world, Huub Wattbike is a British-based UCI Track Cycling Team known for their willingness to challenge accepted standards and demand the highest performance of their equipment, training processes, and themselves. Using Notio, the team tests the aero performance of everything from their bikes to their position on the aerobars – down to their tires and skewers. That data-driven approach has framed decisions around race strategy, training techniques, and of course, choice of equipment. Beginning as a self-funded team, the riders researched every piece of equipment they invested in, and that research originally led them to Argon 18’s Electron Pro.
“We chose Argon 18 foremost because of performance,” says Huub Wattbike’s Dan Bigham. “The aero advantage of the Electron Pro of course, but it was more than that – there’s also the handling, stiffness, and with the integrated bar setup we saw our starts improve a lot. We also like that Argon is keen on R&D, on constantly testing and developing. We like the approach of the company.”
