3T Exploro – Rival


The 3T Exploro has created an exciting new category of bike. Road, gravel and light trails are all home to this genre defying ride. The aero optimized Exploro frame has been designed with responsive road geometry and the clearance for up to 700/40 road tires or 27.5/2.1 inch MTB tires.

The Exploro is engineered to accommodate road, cross and even mountain bike tires following the GravelPlus standard. The road and cross tires use traditional 700c wheels and the mountain bike tires use the 650b wheels, ensuring that all of these have virtually the same overall wheel diameter and therefore the same predictable handling.

The Exploro was designed to be “real world” aerodynamic. It was optimized for wind speeds at a realistic 20mph (32kmh) instead of the standard 30mph (48kmh) with water bottles (tough to do long, epic rides without). They even designed the Sqaero frame tube shape to work well when covered in mud! The result? A muddy Exploro with 40mm knobby gravel tires and 2 water bottles is faster than the equivalent clean round tube bike is with 28mm slick road tires and without bottles.

This build comes with a reliable Rival 1X drivetrain and 650B wheels. The WTB Byway 47c tires allow you to find comfort on remote gravel roads without feeling slow on the pavement required to reach them. Add a second set or aero road wheels and you are close to having a one bike quiver.
