Argonaut Introduces A New Breed Of Superbike; the GR2 Gravel Racer

With a total weight of 16 lbs., rider-specific geometry, and rider-specific layup pattern, the Argonaut GR2 is the perfect tool for a weekday hammer-fest or a brutal 8-hour gravel race.

Fabricated by hand in Oregon, the GR2 is a lightweight gravel speed machine with impeccable ride manners due to the fact that every customer receives rider-specific carbon fiber layup.

It’s not every day that a new superbike appears on the landscape, but Argonaut can lay claim to that title through their meticulous build process and the heaps of praise piled on their existing bicycles.

The GR2 is built to excel across a wide range of conditions and is poised to be a quiver-killer for many owners. The bike also inherits the award-winning performance that distinguishes every Argonaut. The original Gravel Racer debuted in 2015, receiving “Best in Show” at that year’s North American Handmade Bicycle Show. Designed for speed in a wide variety of road surfaces and conditions, it represented the state of the art in gravel geometry and tech. Since then, Argonaut has intentionally sat on the sidelines of the gravel scene as things have changed, watching and planning how to make the next best gravel bike.

Gravel expectations have evolved, and the GR2 is built to excel in modern race conditions. Most importantly, Argonaut believes their bikes should jump when you step on the gas, and the GR2 is no exception; but geometry is only part of their special blend.

Argonaut’s ability to make completely rider-customized carbon fiber layups is unique, and when combined with full-custom geometry it creates the truly transcendent ride characteristic of every Argonaut. Lively and precise, the GR2 will win praise as effortlessly as it wins races.
