Product Description

Contender Bicycles is your exclusive U.S. dealer for the Exploro x BMW Edition.

The BMW name is synonymous with luxury and performance automobiles, while 3T Bike is a relatively small company, even in the cycling world. But while one makes the 'Ultimate Driving Machine', and the other makes some of the finest performance-oriented bicycles around, we think that their new collaboration makes for a powerful partnership. This comes in the form of the new 3T Exploro Team BMW Special Edition gravel bike, built to the nines as BMWs typically are.

Aero bikes and gravel bikes don't mix, do they? Apparently they do and the 3T Exploro is the premiere (and only) option on the market today. It is designed to be fast in the real world, and with the new Team frame option, the 3T Exploro Team BMW Special Edition gravel bike is designed to be a well-priced gravel bike that is fast, comfortable, and versatile.

Each Exploro shares some DNA with the OPEN UP. This includes a lot of similarities in reach and stack measurements, though the Exploro has a slightly lower front end and shorter 415 mm chainstays that make the bike a touch more nimble, and slightly more aggressive in handling. This is paired to a beefy aero-tuned downtube called Sqaero. At 32km/h, 3T claims that a mud-spattered Exploro equipped with two water bottles and 50mm CX tires suffers ~10% less drag than a road bike with round tubing and 28mm tires. That doesn’t mean the Exploro will ever rival an aero road bike, but it certainly is more aero than any other gravel bike on the market.

The 3T Exploro Team BMW Special Edition gravel bike features their custom painted Team-level carbon frame and 3T Fango Team fork. A Shimano GRX 1x11 drivetrain with an 11-42T cassette, Fulcrum Racing 7 DB wheels, Schwalbe G-ONE SPEED Evo 50mm tires, and 3T Superergo Team Stealth bars complete the build. The 3T Exploro Team BMW Special Edition is available in four sizes (SM-XL) and is available in two colors (Grey and Blue).
