Get to the worst roads fast with the aero frame & road-inspired riding position of the 3T Exploro Ultra Rival XPLR AXS 700c Gravel Bike. Many riders these days love riding in rough terrain but live in a more urban jungle. So you need a bike that is fast on-road and capable off-road. Keep your grip with massive tires (not very aero but you'd be surprised at the speed) and go for a standard round, dropper or suspension post inside the Ultra's aero seattube. Add a few packs and the Ultra is even ready for epic overnight adventures.
The Ultra is 3T's most extreme bike. Starting with 55-61mm wide tires, they then designed the whole aero package around those to keep the on-road speed high. If you ride on less extreme terrain, you can also fit 700c tires up to 45mm WAM (With As Measured).
The Ultra was 3T's most difficult aerodynamic challenge to date: starting with massive 55-61mm tires and then making the bike aero. There's nothing to be done about the tires, they're big and the knobs don't help. What can be done is to take the airflow mess that comes off the front wheel and try to catch and redirect it. That's why you will see the 60mm wide downtube placed closely behind the front wheel, going even wider as it gets closer to the BB.
Blending this into the headtube with an off-center aero profile along with loads of other tricks gives you a bike that feels so much faster than your brain can compute. And thanks to your riding position, the aerodynamics, the BB stiffness and the narrow Q-factor, the Ultra actually feels 100% like a road bike when you want to go fast. Even when muddy.
