ARGON 18 BOOSTS TRIATHLON ROSTER WITH AMERICAN POWERHOUSE HEATHER JACKSON
Argon 18 adds to its powerful triathlon roster for 2018 with the signing of U.S professional triathlete, Heather Jackson. A multiple Ironman© and Ironman 70.3© champion, Jackson is the embodiment of Argon 18’s relentless pursuit of the perfect ride and passion for the sport of triathlon.
“I am beyond excited for my new partnership with Argon 18. I spent a few weeks testing and re-testing four different bikes on various terrain and in different conditions. Argon stood out from the others, primarily for its lightness and responsiveness. Not only is it an aerodynamic and fast bike, but it is super-light and snappy. Finally, I chose Argon 18 because of the team behind these bikes. They’re committed to innovation and development and helping their triathletes and cyclists be the fastest they can be.” –Heather Jackson, Professional Triathlete.
The new partnership with USA’s top female triathlete truly demonstrates Argon 18’s ever-growing dedication to triathlon, women’s place in the sport, and the company’s focused efforts to expand its presence in the American market. Jackson’s signing is another step in the right direction in the company’s drive to become the reference when it comes to triathlon bikes. This season’s bike count at Kona Ironman showed the brand is growing in numbers within the sport and again placed in the top five brands in the race count this past October.
“This is so much more than a sponsorship. This is a true partnership. And a potent demonstration of our firm commitment to the US market. With Heather on board, Argon 18 has just entered the highest level of the women’s triathlon circuit, and we intend to keep it that way. There’s no looking back here. Only forward.” –Tim McCulley, Argon 18 USA Director of Sales.
Jackson, who is known to attack the race from the start, will launch her 2018 season aboard the E-119 Tri+. This is a match made in heaven between the powerful triathlete and Argon 18’s iconic triathlon bike. This triathlon bike has received endorsement, from world-class professional triathletes who, like Jackson, share Argon 18 ’s vision to go further and chart new territory when it comes to combining performance, aerodynamics and technology.
“We’re extremely proud and honoured that Heather chose Argon 18 as her bicycle sponsor based on our bike’s performance. We always aim for gains on the bike, wherever we can find them, and are excited to be a part of Heather’s quest for the top of the podium in Kona. We are stoked for an upcoming rock star season with her on board.” –Stephanie Raymond, Argon 18 Sponsorship Manager
