The 3T Strada is revolutionary in its own rights. This TriStore custom build features tubeless ready Cosmic Pro Carbon Disc wheels, fantastic both as a training and race wheelset. The key elements of the Strada are tyre size optimization and a paradigm shift for the drivetrain, combined with a lightbulb moment designing new aero shapes. With the ability to fit up to a 28mm tyre as well as the first aero road bike to fit a 1x11 chainset the Strada is finished off with some mighty 3T componentry and the Specialized power expert saddle which is ridden and loved by us working in the store.
Wide tyre optimisation
The STRADA is the first aero road frame that is optimized for wider tyres, so finally you can be fast and comfortable all the time, from the cobbles to the climbs. All day, every day, with one and the same bike.
Paradigm Shift: 1xAero
Sometimes more is not better, it’s just more; more weight, more drag, more gear overlap and more complexity. So instead of 2x11 with 14 effective gears, a front derailleur, a second ring and a second shift lever, 1x11 gives you the gears you need, the range you need, fewer components, less weight, less drag and less hassle.
Instead of a bulky, un-aero crown, 3t minimize its size. This improves the crown’s aerodynamics and moves the front wheel closer to the downtube, creating a perfect transition for the airflow.
Sqaero fork legs
The Sqaero fork airfoil only has a small truncation, perfect to guide the airflow around the front wheel and boost fork stiffness. Different left & right profiles are used to counteract braking forces.
The Fundi supports flat mount disc brakes with 140/160mm rotors. The disc adaptor to switch between 140 and 160 is completely integrated into the left fork leg shape.
The Fundi connects all the relevant points (axle, brake mount, crown) the most direct way possible, achieving a low weight and a minimal frontal area with the visually striking design.
