Bike of the Week

3T Exploro GRX 1X

An aero gravel bike with massive 57mm tires and simple, clean & aero Shimano GRX 1x drivetrain.

Whether riding road or gravel, we love speed. So everything on the new RaceMax frame is engineered for that. The end result is the first gravel bike that:

  • Looks like a road bike
  • Rides like a road bike
  • Rips through gravel

Best of all, the very same RaceMax frame can be built up with a focus on pure speed (the “RACE” set-up on this page) or as an unstoppable machine with very wide tires (the “MAX” set-up over here). You choose. And with two wheelsets, you can switch between RACE & MAX easily. That’s RaceMax.
