Description

Description

The 3T Exploro frameset was designed for fast off-road riding packing in plenty of comfort and versatility. As the first aerodynamically minded "allroad" bike the Exploro countered confused looks with several design and industry awards before taking victory at the Dirty Kanza - one of gravel racing’s most prestigious events.

The Exploro’s versatility can become a real challenge when building up a dream bike. 3T themselves suggest using the Exploro with two sets of wheels/tyres - one for faster road rides or dry compact gravel and one for wetter, muddier days or more technical downhill. Ultimately the Exploro has the possibility to be a everyday road bike and a highly competent off road bike.

The Exploro differs from other framesets with “clearance” for wider tyres in that it has been aerodynamically optimised to work with a wide knobby tyre, covered in mud. Interestingly 3T do much of their aerodynamics testing at 20mph rather than the industry standard 30mph making their design much more realistic to the everyday rider. They even claim that a muddy Exploro with 40mm knobby gravel tires and 2 water bottles outperformed a round tube road bike with 28mm slick road tires without bottles! The secret to this is the shape of the downtube. 3T use their Sqaero shape with a 50x75mm cross section to catch the air coming off the front tyre. It also handily shields the bottles from interfering with drag. Internal cable routing and a hidden seatpost clamp keep the frame clean, and FlipTop cable guides future proof the Exploro frameset for evolutions in mechanical and electronic groupsets, single and double chainrings.
