*The 3T Exploro model may differ from the one shown in our photos/videos.
The key to the Exploro's speed is the air downtube that is wide enough to catch the airflow coming off the big front tire (a skinny downtube would not even touch the airflow).
Internal cables, hoses and seatpost clamp clean up the frame aerodynamically and visually. Dedicated FlipTop cable guides are future-proof with in mechanical & electronic versions for single & double chainrings.
Attach a small toptube bag onto the frame without using straps which may interfere with your knees. Several bag manufacturers make toptube bags in different sizes following this standard.
For mechanical efficiency and safety, both seatpost and seattube have a minimum insertion. The Checkpoint ensures you insert the Charlie seatpost far enough into the seattube.
Let’s be clear, this is not a big deal. Post mount disc brakes work perfectly well, but the industry slowly moves to flatmount and that’s fine too. We’ll save our energy for a battle that actuall matters.
The original Exploro has a beautiful hidden expander, but a top-mounted expander is a bit more user-friendly so just like on the Strada, we now offer this design on the Exploro.
