3T Exploro Ultra gravel bike in review

May 2022 · By

For the 3T Exploro Ultra, the Italian brand has furnished the familiar frame with a new spec to make the bike fit for the trails. In addition to a mullet drivetrain and chunky tires, the carbon dropper post particularly stands out. Our group test of 18 of the best gravel bikes of the year will reveal whether the concept works and if the Exploro Ultra can shine across a wide range of applications.

Highs
  • Dropper post offers a lot of freedom of movement

  • Great handlebar ergonomics

  • Very efficient pedaller

  • Cranks from carbon heaven

Lows
  • Limited comfort

  • Top tube cable routing

  • Dropper post lever is stiff

  • Limited clearance between rear wheel and seat tube
