2017 3T Exploro LTD

3T has produced the world’s first aero gravel bike. You might be thinking, an aero gravel bike?? Does the world even need such a thing? But the innovators at 3T, through extensive testing, research and development have proven that not only does the world need an aero gravel bike, the world needs this aero gravel bike.

3T knows that real life conditions differ from those in a lab. Biking in real life is messy, the weather can’t always be forecasted, and if we are going on an all day epic we’ll load our bike up with all kinds of stuff. 3T decided that to make a bike that was truly aerodynamic they had to replicate these real life conditions. So when they did their wind tunnel tests they did them at realistic speeds, with bikes covered in mud and weighted down with water bottles. Even with these challenges the bike excelled. At 20mph the Exploro saved 7 watts in comparison to a round frame bike. At 30mph the savings was even greater at 24 watts. The way 3T achieves its wind cheating aerodynamics is by turning its oversized downtube into a partial airfoil. Due to its width, the aero downtube can catch the air coming off the big front tire.

The Exploro is designed to take 700c wheels with clearance for up to 40mm tires, or 650b wheels with mountain tires up to 2.1”. The Exploro is ready to tackle any riding conditions.

The frame has what 3T calls a “Hang Loose Hanger”. The rear derailleur hanger detaches from frame when rear wheel is removed. This makes it much easier to fix a flat out on the trail, since you don’t have to tangle with the chain! The thru axle makes reattaching a snap.
