Like everything in the world around us, the sport of cycling is in a perpetual state of evolution. Disciplines, styles, and designs all come and go. And on our quest for adventure, excitement, and satisfaction, we seek out new terrain to fulfil those primal needs.

Gravel may well be the discipline that made cycling sexy again, and it’s a domain where creative and innovative manufacturers like 3T truly shine. Just as BMW raised the appeal of luxury cars, 3T’s new offering—the 3T for BMW Exploro—extends this luxury to the gravel trails too.

Their quest for superior aerodynamics and their drive to push bike technology saw the introduction of their first Exploro in 2016. With a geometry honed for fast-paced gravel riding, it’s nimble and agile on any surface from the paved asphalt to gravel or singletrack.
