Product Description


You can hit the dirt and hit it fast when you are aboard your Argon 18 Dark Matter Daytona PRO+. This gravel bike gives you the freedom to go way off the standard path and onto uncharted grounds. Argon 18 wants to change the game in terms of gravel bikes with the Dark Matter. Its race inspired geometry and ultra-responsive steering are hard to match in terms of all-road bikes. With the Argon 18 Dark Matter, you will be ready for racing or a long and tough day of off-road riding.

The Dark Matter features a gravel-specific monocoque carbon frame. It is aerodynamic while giving you a high enough position to maintain stability over difficult roads. The front of your frame includes a carbon fork with clearance for 45c tires. This is the same clearance as typical gravel bikes, but the Dark Matter has a longer wheel base than most for extra stability. That fork contains hidden fender mounts to keep your wheels safe on any road. The fork is longer than that of a typical road bike with capacity for disc brakes. Three sizes of headtube extensions give you the option to make your front end even taller to suit your own riding preference.

As with any gravel bike, durability plays a large part in the design of the Dark Matter frame. It features an inlaid chainsuck guard with an integrated drain hole as well as a silicone chainstay protector. The downtube is protected in a similar fashion and holds a bottle mount and access to internal cable routing. With all these features integrated into the frame, the carbon, chain, and cables can all be adequately protected from the elements.

As you traverse some difficult gravel terrain, you need a bike that will be compliant, so you can stay comfortable and maintain your stamina. The TDS-C seatpost is easy to use, comfortable, and compliant for an all-day ride. Bent fork legs are designed to flex and absorb vibrations to dissipate impact forces before they reach your body and hands. The seamless shifting provided by the SRAM Red eTap AXS groupset lets you keep the perfect position to deal with this type of terrain while finding your perfect gear.

The Argon 18 Dark Matter is your companion for the longest and most grueling rides imaginable. If you want the ability to go fast off the beaten path, the Argon 18 Dark Matter is the perfect racer for you. It utilizes SRAM Red eTap AXS 12-speed electronic shifting and a 1x drivetrain to keep things as simple and high-performing as possible. Few companies have dedicated so much to creating a fast gravel bike. Argon 18 did just that with this aerodynamic carbon frame. With extra durability and comfort, the Dark Matter has all your bases covered and is an outstanding all-around machine for all-day riding.
