3T Exploro Racemax Italia - Founder's Edition
The 3T Exploro Racemax Italia - Founder's Edition is a high-performance gravel bike designed by 3T, a leading manufacturer of cycling components and frames. This limited edition bike was created to celebrate the brand's Italian heritage, and it features a number of unique design elements and top-of-the-line components.
One of the key features of the 3T Exploro Racemax Italia - Founder's Edition is its aerodynamic frame design. The bike's truncated airfoil tubes and smooth lines help to reduce wind resistance, allowing riders to go faster with less effort. The frame is made from high-modulus carbon fiber, which is both lightweight and strong, and it has been optimized for stiffness and comfort.
Another standout feature of the 3T Exploro Racemax Italia - Founder's Edition is its wheelset. The bike comes with a set of high-end carbon fiber wheels from 3T's Discus line, which are lightweight and responsive. The wheels are fitted with wide, tubeless-ready tires that provide excellent traction and control on rough terrain.
In addition to its top-of-the-line components, the 3T Exploro Racemax Italia - Founder's Edition also features a number of unique design elements. The bike's frame is finished in a special paint scheme that incorporates the colors of the Italian flag, and it is adorned with a number of custom decals and logos. The bike also features a custom Selle Italia saddle and 3T's own Aeronova handlebars.
The 3T Exploro Racemax Italia - Founder's Edition is a premium gravel bike that is designed for serious cyclists who demand the best. With its advanced aerodynamics, top-quality components, and unique Italian-inspired design, this bike is sure to turn heads and deliver a thrilling ride.
|PERFECT AERO CUTOUT||Close-fitting cutout to shield the rear wheel and achieve the most speed.|
|MIND THE GAP||No oversized gaps between front tire & downtube for better airflow transition and less turbulence.|
|HUGE CLEARANCE||The original Exploro set today’s standard for 54mm tire clearance. The RaceMax has 61mm!|
|75MM DOWNTUBE BASE||Lower downtube aero profile is 75mm wide to fully shield water bottle.|
|46MM DOWNTUBE NECK||Upper downtube necks down to 46mm to pick up the airflow coming off the front tire.|
|SIZE-SPECIFIC DOWNTUBE||Reduced depth on smaller sizes to keep frame compliant and keep space for bottles.|
|NARROW HEADTUBE||Headtube is sized like a road bike for a small 1 1/4” steerer for optimal aerodynamics.|
|BIG STEERER||Inside that narrow headtube is a big 1 1/2” steerer for best strength and stiffness.|
|MINMAX HEADSET||To fit this big steerer inside the narrow headtube, we use the custom MinMax headset.|
|MINIMALIST CROWN||Fork crown shapes haven\'t changed much since brakes were attached there. Now that we have disc brakes, we don’t need that bulk of material and can reshape the crown for better strength, stiffness and weight. Plus better aerodynamics.|
|PURE-ROAD FORK LENGTH||With the shorter crown, we can make our forks 25mm (1 inch) shorter than other gravel bikes. Exactly the same as a road fork. This offers better stiffness, lower weight, an easier steering geometry and better aerodynamics.|
|DOUBLE-DROP CHAINSTAYS||Dropping the drive-side chainstay improves tire & crank clearance. Dropping the other side as well creates a much more efficient structure behind the BB for higher stiffness & strength as well as lower weight.|
|DIRECT-MOUNT REAR BRAKE||Standard frames require an adaptor to use a 160mm brake rotor. We have integrated that into the frame, meaning you don’t need any extra pieces to attach the brake.|
|DIRECT-MOUNT FRONT BRAKE||Standard forks require a flip-flop adaptor to set the correct brake rotor size. Our direct-mount pre-sets the caliper for 160mm rotors without any extra pieces.|
|INTEGRATED FENDER MOUNTS||Invisible until you need them. Custom fenders coming soon.|
|CLEAN PERFORMANCE||Self-adjusting bolt angle for higher clamping forces with lower torque.|
|RITCHEY RAIL CLAMP||The new standard for gravel bikes, available for round and oval rails.|
|Rider Height* (cm)||142-157||153-167||164--177||175-185||183-196||192&Up|
|Rider Height* (inches)||4’8”-5’2”||5’0”-5’6”||5’5”-5’10”||5’9”-6’1”||6’0”-6’5”||6’3”&Up|
