3T Exploro Ultra Apex XPLR AXS 1x 700c Bike Info

The 3T Exploro burst onto the scene as the industry’s first aero gravel bike. Now, the Exploro Ultra is here to keep that speed on a wider variety of terrain. It keeps the aerodynamic frame with a road bike inspired riding position but adds the benefit of massive tires. This version has Fulcrum Rapid Red 900 700c wheels with Pirelli Cinturato Gravel M tires. It is perfect for the urban rider who loves venturing onto difficult terrain but also needs something that can fly on the road. 3T managed to create a frame that has the same reactive feel as a road frame and can handle technical downhills like a mountain bike. The new Exploro Ultra has all the speed you love from the Exploro line with the option of more extreme riding.

The challenge was keeping the aerodynamics of the Exploro while accommodating large tires. To solve this, 3T aerodynamically engineered the frame around the tires. This determined how to shape the frame to redirect airflow despite a lack of aero tires. The reality is, 55-61mm tires will always create a mess of airflow, especially with knobs. 3T started here and figured out how to design a frame that would catch and redirect the air. They did this by using a 60mm wide downtube behind the front wheel that gets wider closer to the bottom bracket. It also features an off-center aero profile. This makes the Exploro Ultra much faster than you would ever expect a bike with such large tires to be.

The frame of the 3T Exploro Ultra is made with a high-quality carbon that is both lightweight and incredibly stiff. This makes it tough and rigid enough to deal with some of the most daunting terrain off the road. It features a very stiff bottom bracket that helps it remain tough and efficient on a trail. Hidden fender mounts are there if you need them and a wide downtube base completely shields your water bottle. As you would expect, disc brakes and a 1x setup are optimized on this bike. This version is equipped with a SRAM Apex XPLR AXS 1x groupset. This provides reliable electronic shifting that is geared toward mixed terrain riding. The 3T Exploro Ultra is the best way to take on extreme terrain without sacrificing your speed.
