ONE FRAME, ANY RIDE – INTRODUCING THE
3T EXPLORO FRAMESET
At R&A, we have countless customers ask us for that “one” bike that can tackle any kind of ride they want to do, from intense road racing to casual dirt road exploration. We now have a bold, confident answer: the all-new 3T Exploro. It’s true, we sell a few other highly versatile machines, but none with the European flare or the competitive road edge of the Exploro, with its aero-tuned tubing, multitude of bottle and rack mounts, and incredible blend of high strength and low weight. We’re always eager to hear your custom build ideas. Let us turn your dream into reality!
GRAVEL MACHINE? CYCLOCROSS RIG? AERO ROAD BIKE? MOUNTAIN HARDTAIL? THE ANSWER IS “YES.”
ROAD STEADY, BUT ROCK READY
Engineers wanted to created a truly versatile machine, so they made sure the rear triangle and fork were able to accommodate a wide variety of wheel sizes, from standard 700c road wheels with virtually any size road or gravel tire, to 650b mountain-type wheels with chunky, knobby off-road tires for trail readiness.
IT’S HIP TO BE SQAERO
The triple bottle/accessory mounting bolts on the Exploro’s downtube aren’t the only remarkable thing about this image. The unique shape of the frame’s headtube, seattube, and downtube are called Sqaero – a structurally square tube, for maximum strength and stiffness, that’s been aerodynamically tuned to minimize drag, saving you precious watts, whether in a circuit road race or just covering a hundred desert miles.
A FIRM FOUNDATION
The Exploro is engineered for maximum responsiveness and solidity, and this is illustrated in part by the thru-axles you’ll find front and rear. Thru-axles are both longer and wider in diameter than traditional quick-release skewers, allowing engineers to build the frame wider and more stout, translating into both a more responsive feeling when you put down the power, and also a more grounded and stable feeling over choppy terrain.
ALMOST TOO MANY DETAILS
Internal cable routing, a BB386EVO bottom bracket, multiple bottle/accessory mounts, performance geometry, disc brakes, and much more. It’s all almost too much to list. The bottom line is that if you’re looking to build an extremely capable machine with some style and real speed to boot, the 3T Exploro has you covered.
