When you are designing some of the best high-end race bikes on the planet, your product development cycle also feels like a race.

The sophistication of Argon 18's product development process called for exhaustive product validation prior to commercial launch, and re-scheduling the bike season isn’t an option.

Using, Argon 18's mechanical engineering team was able to design, order and assemble a “frontal impact” test bench in less than one week from "idea" to “in-service”.

Upon completing a first version of their test bench, Vention’s support team helped them optimize the design of the bench for structural rigidity and cost effectiveness.

After 2 days of design iteration, the concept was frozen and an order was placed for delivery 2 days later.

This new test setup will ensure Argon 18's carbon fiber race bikes achieve the highest standards in term of impact resistance to weight ratio.
