First Ride: 3T Exploro

awesome

As PressCamps go, this one is as busy as ever with morning meetings, and afternoon rides. I rode a 3T Exploro, in 650b mode, all over the Deer Valley Mountain Bike Park. However the marketers define a bike like this isn’t up to me. I’m gonna say it’s a fire road bike, and one the market has been waiting at least 2 seasons for.

First ride impressions: a next-level bike from the mind of Vroomen. It’s the drop-bar MTB that I’ve been wanting. No, it’s not spec’d for a camping adventure, but it’s so much fun, I don’t care if it doesn’t have rack mounts. Because it’s like a jeep with its top off. If you want the luxury edition, buy something else. The 3t Explorer is about going fast and hard on gravel.

I may not even want to own it, but I LOVED riding it. Then realized, if I wanted to go fast and do the Tuesday night crit? Put on 700c with 25s. Want a more plushride for that gravel century? Put on 650s and a 45.

That’s why it doesn’t have rack mounts You’re not supposed to hang bags all over it.

I’ll ride the Open tomorrow too with photos and analysis of the buzz-bike of the event.

My daily shooter is Sony a9 II with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more recommendations on our store page. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
