HDS – Horizontal Dual System

A Bike Frame Made of Power and Comfort

With its Horizontal Dual System (HDS), Argon 18 has succeeded in combining rigidity and comfort, qualities that are typically seen as mutually exclusive. The basic idea is simple: our frame tubes are each designed for a specific purpose.

At Argon 18 we divide the frame into two zones along a diagonal line:

1. The tubes in the lower section of the frame are made with more carbon fiber to deliver maximum rigidity, especially in the bottom bracket. This provides a responsive and accurate transfer of power that is simply like no other.

2. The tubes in the upper section of the frame are made of less and more flexible carbon fiber to absorb vibration and ensure maximum comfort on all types of terrain.
