Video Review: T-Lab X3 All-Terrain Titanium Gravel Bike with Shimano Ultegra Di2

The T-Lab Bicycles All-Terrain X3 Titanium gravel bike is hand-made in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Constructed from Grade 9 titanium (3Al-2.5V), this unique and beautiful bike utilizes a proprietary forming technology that not only creates frame tubes unlike anything else on the market, but also optimizes stiffness-to-weight ratios, sans extra weight.

The T-Lab X3 was ridden and reviewed during a five-week period, mostly in Australia. For those wondering, the bike weighs approximately 18.5lbs with the components in the video.

  1. That’s a nice looking bike. I wish the welds looked a bit better, but I could live them as they are.

    When is BikeRumor giving away a T-Lab X3 and a free trip to Aussieland for gravel riding?

  2. In addition to sub standard welds for a bike in this price class, how about those atrocious squished stay ends to size to the cheapy plate dropouts? My Pacific kids bikes had that kinda smashed tube finish so they could fit dropouts. Gack

  3. As the one who engineered the chainstay/dropout junction, I can tell you that it was done for functional purposes:

    – Added strength in the vertical plane for coping with the disc brake caliper reaction

    – A slimmer side profile for heel clearence

    Most people who have seen our bikes first hand really appreciate their overall look and finish. That said, they are designed with performance in mind, not aesthetics.
