Luis Leon Sanchez's Argon 18 Gallium Pro – Gallery

For the second consecutive season, Astana Pro Team will race on Canadian brand Argon 18 framesets, following more than five seasons with Specialized.

The Kazakh-registered team have the choice of Nitrogen Pro aero specific frames, E-119 time trial frames and Gallium Pro all-round race frames, which Spanish veteran Luis Leon Sanchez opted to race on for the WorldTour opener at the Tour Down Under.

The 34-year-old Sanchez is spending his fourth season with the Astana team and his 15th as a professional in 2018.

Astana equip their Argon 18 frames with a mixed groupset including Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 series and FSA K-Force Light components. FSA also provides the cockpit and seatpost for Sanchez's bike.

Sanchez pairs his Corima 58 S+ wheels with S-Works Turbo 26mm tubular tyres, which have been blacked-out with a marker pen to prevent any sponsorship issues.
