The Exploro RaceMax Carbon Frameset - All-road racer or bike for rough gravel


The Exploro RaceMax frameset from 3T is the foundation for a carbon gravel bike. Depending on the other components, you can build a fast all-road bike or a gravel machine with really wide tyres. The aerodynamic frame, has a particularly strong down tube and a very narrow head tube. However, this head tube, contains a 1.5" strong steerer tube, which gives the bike smoothness and stability. It is also important to have sufficient tyre clearance. Among other things, this is achieved through a minimalistic fork crown. The frame itself has chain stays which are lowered on both sides; this also allows for greater tyre clearance.

Technology:

Checkpoint Charlie:
Optimising the length of the seat tube is just as important as every gram of weight on the strenuous climbs that you will ride on your Exploro. However, ensuring safety is significantly more important. If you want to shorten the tube, use the checkpoint on the seat tube to determine whether the minimum inner length has been reached.
