3T Exploro LTD Flatmount Gravel Frameset
The 3T Exploro LTD (flatmount) is the world's first-ever all-roads aero frame, built for speed and comfort on roads and trails beyond the reach of regular road bikes. With clearance for big tyress it will help conquer any surface while its aerodynamic shapes are proven to work at real speeds under real conditions, on any type of surface. Designed to go anywhere fast! This Limited-Edition version of the 3T Exploro made from a higher-grade carbon - Sqaero LTD is even lighter than the Exploro Team.
The 3T Exploro Frameset LTD (flatmount) is shipped with the following, Frame, fork, seatpost, seatpost internal clamp, front thru axle, 1 front and 2 rear derailleur hangers, front derailleur cable liner, noise-cancelling foam sleeve for rear derailleur housing and brake hose.
Square shapes are very efficient for high strength and stiffness. Airfoil shapes are effective in reducing wind resistance. Sqaero combines the best of both worlds, with a truncated airfoil shape that tricks the airflow into behaving as if it is a full shape, while staying close to square in its overall dimensions.
RealFast‚ aero design saves you energy. To make sure of that, 3T test at a realistic 20mph in the wind tunnel, not the usual 30mph. 3T even test frames covered in 3D-printed mud. The difference? Exploro is faster when muddy & fit with 40mm knobby tyres than a clean standard road bike with 28mm slicks!
The Exploro fits road, cross or MTB tyres so you can tune your ride to the conditions. And because the 3T uses 650b mountain bike tyres and 700c road/cross tyres, you get the same brilliant handling on or off road.
Performance Geometry
Exploro offers the most responsive ride ever on gravel thanks to its super compact performance gravel geometry. It combines a fast, road-inspired rider position with short 415mm chainstays and agile steering geometry for phenomenal acceleration & grip on loose surfaces as well as asphalt.
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 with ease.
Clean Performance
Internal cables, hoses, and seatpost clamp clean up look and function. FlipTop cable guides protect Exploro's hoses and cables from dirt and fit mechanical or electronic shifting with single or double chainrings.
