We had the opportunity today to look closer at the Argon 18 E-118 of Ironman Cozumel champion Iván Raña. He may have been flying slightly under the radar here in Kona but he could surprise some folks at the upcoming GoPro Ironman World Championships on Saturday.
While Iván Raña went for a swim we were able to play with his size S race bike.
The lines of the Argon 18 E-118 are very clean.
The fork of the E-118 features the integrated TRP brakes.
The cockpit of the Argon 18 E-118 is pointed slightly uphill.
Iván Raña rides Shimano Ultegra Di2 components.
The saddle on his bike is a ProLogo Nago Evo Tri 40.
Iván Raña spends quite a bit of time training at the Sands Beach active resort.

Another look at the cockpit of this E-118.
172.5 Ultegra cranks on this bike.
As we said earlier, Iván Raña is fine with Shimao Ultegra Di2 components.

He still had a GP Attack tire up front, but both tires will be replaced with new Continental GP 4000 S tires for the race.
