Astana Pro Team rider Fabio Aru is riding the 2018 model Gallium Pro and, according to the manufacturer, the colour is “Il Cavaliere” which celebrates Aru’s Sardinian heritage.
Argon 18 say the 2018 Gallium Pro is the company’s lightest frame ever at 794gr in a medium painted frame and including hardware.
“Highlighted by refined tube shape design and new a carbon fiber lay-up, some features of this new model include redesign and optimization of all parts of the frame,” say the company.
“From the new 4 point riveted front derailleur hanger right up to the inner cable routing. Another key aspect is greater tyre clearance enabling use of up to 28 mm tires.”
