3T Strada Frameset
PRODUCT OVERVIEWThe most recent reinvention from 3T was the EXPLORO, the world’s first aerodynamic adventure bike, an unlikely mash-up that is vintage 3T and an instant classic.
Now 3T has done it again, reinventing the aero road bike from scratch with the STRADA. But “aero road” doesn’t do it justice, as it’s not just extremely aero but also very comfortable. How can one bike be both?
The key elements are tire size optimization and a paradigm shift for the drivetrain, combined with a lightbulb moment designing new aero shapes.
FEATURESMINIMALIST CROWN: Unaero crown minimised to improve the crown’s aerodynamics and move the front wheel closer to the downtube.
SQAERO FORK LEGS: The Sqaero fork airfoil has a small truncation to guide the airflow around the front wheel and boost fork stiffness. Different left & right profiles are used to counteract braking forces.
INTEGRATED ADAPTOR: The Fundi supports flat mount disc brakes with 140/160mm rotors. The disc adaptor to switch between 140 and 160 is completely integrated into the left fork leg shape.
KINKED LEG: The Fundi connects all the relevant points (axle, brake mount, crown) the most direct way possible, achieving a low weight and a minimal frontal area with visually striking design.
