3T Exploro Ltd FramesetWhatever your favoured discipline, or perhaps you do it all, the Exploro is incredibly adaptable to allow you to enjoy any style of riding over any type of terrain. With this frameset road, cross, and MTB tires can all be fitted: 700c road or cross tires are close in diameter to 650b GravelPlus® tires. Switching to 650b wheels for wider tire sizes enables the frame to have compact, race-bred geometry and a short rear end, for agile steering and phenomenal grip on loose dirt as well as tarmac The Exploro is also fine for use with either a single or a double chainset and its ‘dropped’ chainstay on the driveside ensures there are no clearance issues. Swapping wheels, or fixing a flat on the trail, couldn’t be easier, thanks to the Out-of-the-Way™ rear mech hanger that detaches from the frame when rear wheel is removed, taking the rear mech and chain out of the way. Thru axle makes re-fitting a snap TechnologySQAERO® GO SLOW FASTER: the best gravel rides are often long and gruelling, so saving a few watts is always very welcome. This is where 3T’s Sqaero shapes come in – squared-off aero shapes that are structurally efficient and fast. Sqaero shapes offer RealFast™ aerodynamics; they are faster not only under perfect conditions but also in the real world. Even when covered by mud and muck. Yes 3T’s Sqaero shapes really are designed to be just as fast dirty as they are clean. The Exploro uses Sqaero 50/25, with a 50mm wide downtube perfect to pick up the airflow coming off a wider cross or MTB front tire and lead it on to the water bottles. The seat tube is 25mm wide to make it aerodynamically disappear in-between the bottles and the rear tire. The headtube, seatstays and custom seatpost also use Sqaero shapes for maximum effeciency GRAVELPLUS® The Exploro is designed to fit road, cross and even mountain bike tires following the GravelPlus standard. The road and cross tires are 700c, the mountain bike tires use the 650b size, ensuring that all of these have virtually the same overall wheel diameter and therefore the same predictable handling PERFORMANCE GRAVEL GEOMETRY Exploro offers the most responsive ride ever on gravel thanks to its super compact performance gravel geometry: short 415mm chainstays and agile, steering ensure phenomenal acceleration and grip on loose dirt as well as asphalt CLEAN PERFORMANCE Internal cables, hoses and seatpost clamp clean up the frame aerodynamically and visually. The FlipTop cable guide on the toptube comes in several versions to allow for mechanical and electronic shifting, with single or double chainrings. For mechanical shifting, the Exploro uses full housing through the frame to protect the cables from any dirt or debris Features:Max inner ring – 36TMax outer ring – 50THeadset: Integrated tapered IS42/28 6|IS52/40Rear axle: 142x12mm thru axleIncludes seatpost, seatpost internal clamp, headset, front thru axle, 1 front and 2 rear derailleur hangersWeight: 950gBuy 3T Bikes from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
