We’ve created a complete bicycle option for our EXPLORO range with the all-new EXPLORO TEAM RIVAL. This product features the EXPLORO team frame outfitted with the latest products from companies like SRAM, WTB and of course our own 3T components. Selecting the SRAM Rival 1x shifting, braking and drivetrain duties was the perfect balance of performance and practicality. The 1x system gives you everything you need and nothing you don’t. Innovative, responsible and ready to tackle any conditions. WTB provides the comfort features from the amply padded Volt Pro saddle to their voluminous 47mm ByWay TCS Road Plus tires. These tires match up very well with the 24mm inner width of Fulcrum's Red Power 650b wheelset. Our ARX stem coupled with our ErNova handlebar wrapped in Corius Pro handlebar tape delivers a comfortable cushioned grip.

 3T Exploro 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. It has clearance for big tires to conquer any surface, coupled with aerodynamic shapes that work at real speeds under real conditions, on any type of surface. Designed to go anywhere‚ fast!


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.


The realfast ‚ aero design saves you energy. To make sure of that, we wind tunnel test at a realistic 20mph, not the usual 30mph. We even test frames covered in 3D-printed mud. The difference? Exploro is faster when muddy & fit with 40mm knobby tires than a clean standard road bike with 28mm slicks!


Exploro fits road, cross and MTB tires, so you can tune your ride to the conditions. And because we use 650b mountain bike tires and 700c road/cross tires (which all three have very similar wheel diameters), 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

Rear derailleur hanger detaches from the frame when the 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.

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.
