Easy To Ride Torque Sensor: Just Pedal and Go!

The Argon is easy and simple to ride. With no gears to shift and a powerful 500 watt motor, the bike can get you where you want to go with minimal fuss.

The near silent 500 watt motor is more powerful than other similar ebikes. Combined with the dual sided torque sensor, this bike goes up steeper hills and travels further compared to the competition.

Maintenance Free

The Belt Drive requires no lubrication so you don’t get grease on your pants, and it never gets covered with grime.

Effortless Control

Pedal harder and the bike goes faster, it’s intuitive and easy to ride! The only bike in its class to feature a dual sided torque sensor for motor control.

Range Anxiety? Not here!

Largest battery in a bike of this weight class.

The Argon uses a 14Ah Li-ion battery, which is double the capacity of similar ebikes. This gives you double the range, better hill climbing and longer life for the battery.

With the Argon you will have a smoother ride, more range, and climb steeper hills.

If really extreme range is more your style, we have models that go up to 300 miles on a charge!

Better Ride Quality

Wider Tires and a Carbon Fiber Fork

Wider 38mm (1.5inch tires) give a softer ride and better traction. And the full carbon fiber fork absorbs bumps better and keeps the weight lower.

Great Stopping Power

With Shimano hydraulic disk brakes front and rear, the Argon stops quickly and is safer to ride.

Legal Anywhere

The Argon can be easily configured as a fully compliant Type 1 Ebike, so it is legal to ride almost anywhere a regular bicycle can go. This is great for urban commuting on bike paths or roads.

Easy Service

The battery and controller are one unit and easily removed for service.
