The 3T Exploro is a chameleon, a ludic reimagining of the performance capability of the gravel bike.
Ridden both on and off road it is a top-tier racer, marrying the very best of multiple disciplines to give you one of the most enjoyable and varied ride experiences available. Aerodynamically optimised and compatible with road, cyclocross and even mountain bike tyres – the Exploro is not only versatile but unrivalled in performance potential.
The Exploro is unique in the radical scope of its performance – designed so that it can accommodate 700c road and cross tyres, or 650b MTB tyres whilst retaining the same overall wheel diameter – it gives perfect and consistent handling with all set ups. At once a winner on ultra-fast road runs, mixed asphalt and gravel routes or even tough off-road trails, the Exploro is gravel riding redefined.
In designing the Exploro, 3T utilised extensive wind-tunnel testing at 20mph, recording the effects of mud, fluid storage and knobbly tyres to settle on a construction which is aero-optimised to real world riding conditions. This precise level of aerodynamic refinement means that you can go fast, whatever the conditions. Where there are headwinds or crosswinds, the Exploro experiences considerably less air resistance, meaning that you can always ride without compromise.
Remarkably, a muddy Exploro with 40mm knobbly tyres and two water bottles is consistently faster in aerodynamic simulation than an equivalent round tubed road bike with 28mm slicks and no water bottles.
The Exploro frameset is constructed from innovative Sqaero tubing which synthesises strength, stiffness and streamlining to give unrivalled aerofoiling qualities. Elegant dropped chainstays and fluid contouring marry form and function seamlessly – giving you the perfect ride, day in, day out.
Every aspect of the Exploro evidences careful and meticulous design. The internal cables, hoses and top-mounted seat clamp give clean aesthetics and minimise drag. An easily removable mech hanger and thru-axle composition make swapping out wheels a smooth and straightforward task. Distilled graphics and slick finishes reflect the understated but confident ethos that underpins the Exploro.
Multi-awarding winning and lauded for its radical approach, the Exploro continues to impress and inspire riders and manufacturers alike. A truly pioneering bike, the Exploro is an emblem of the unexplored, inviting you to expand your conception of what gravel riding can be.
