Introduced last year as the world’s first aero road bike designed exclusively for 1x front chainrings, the 3T Strada Team used their top-level billing, layup and parts. Now, they’ve trickled the design down with a slightly heavier carbon layup, but it keeps the same aerodynamic frame and fork. And the 1x drivetrain.
The Pro model gets a simpler layup that adds about 130g, putting it at about 1,100g. It comes to market thanks to a recent tripling of their production capabilities for the frame and fork that let them catch up on demand for the Team model. It comes with their 3T Discus C35 Pro wheels fitted with 700×25 tires, but they say the wide rims push them to a measured 28mm wide. The frame itself can accommodate up to a 30mm tire. Finishing kit includes their Aeronova handlebar and a full SRAM Force 1×11 group…including the cranks, which come with the Quarq-ready spider. Sorry, no 3T Torno cranks or 12-speed cassette on this model.
Retail for the complete bike is $/€4,990, available now through 3T dealers. Full build spec available on their website.
