This fall will see the launch of the first endurance bike created by Mercedes-Benz in collaboration with Canadian high-end bike manufacturer, Argon 18. Both brands share a passion for innovative technology and products that offer a unique user-experience, making this collaboration a seemingly natural fit. The first launch of the collaboration will be a road endurance bike with a Mercedes designed exterior featuring a silver-colored frame and silver-black gradient on saddle and struts.
This bike’s fork has a special shape, optimized for vibration absorption and control. It is available in two component options— the Ultegra Di2 featuring electronic shifting with FSA Trimax 40 Carbon wheels and the Ultegra group with Trimax 30 wheels. The former features an integrated rechargeable battery with charge-level indicator but both versions are equipped with high tech hydraulic brakes and come in 6 sizes from XXS to XL.
“The bike blends perfectly with our design philosophy of Sensual Purity. This expresses itself in the bipolarity of emotion and intelligence. The intricately designed carbon frame in conjunction with the typical Mercedes-Benz color scheme, provides dynamics even while standing still, thus ensuring an emotional connection. Perfectly integrated technical components and fascinating functions represent the high competence of our new partner,” said Martin Bremer, Senior Manager, Design Creation Brand Experience.
