Frame geometry on the attached sheet.
Go way off the beaten path with this gravel racer featuring a true road race inspired geometry derived from Argon 18’s legendary race bikes. It may be more stable, it may sport big tires, yet the Dark Matter is so responsive that it will change the gravel bike game forever. Some will blaze the trail; on the Dark Matter, you will torch it.
TO THE END OF THE PAVED ROAD AND BEYOND
When we set out to design the Dark Matter, we made sure not to come up with just another gravel bike. Our vision was to build a true gravel racer: a fast dirt road bike with a geometry adapted from our celebrated road frames. We wanted a bike offering improved stability but with a racing behavior, a bike that would feel just as fast and responsive on the trail that it would on the road.
