3T unveils Strada ICR: “the world’s most comfortable aero bike” now comes with integrated cable routing

Mat BrettNov 8, 2022

New head tube is as narrow as before but deeper for an aero gain; both 1x and 2x builds are available

From 3T
In the Zone

From the start, our goal for the Strada was the best aerodynamics AND comfort. Because without comfort, you won’t be able to maintain your aero position. While push the limits of aerodynamics and comfort in every detail, the Strada 2.0 has two clearly distinct zones: Speed zone: the front half of the bike, with its ultra-deep yet narrow headtube, wrap-around downtube and bladed fork Comfort zone: the curved seattube, slender seatstays and long exposed seatpost provide the ultimate comfort while also helping aerodynamics.

Wide Tire Optimization

Tires provide more compliance than any other part of the bike. Wider tires are better at reducing shocks from cracks, curbs, cobbles and potholes, They even have lower rolling resistance, because their shorter contact patch requires less bending by the casing.

In addition, wider tires reduce fatigue caused by high-frequency road buzz. But aerodynamics are also important on such rides, and the Strada remains the first aero bike engineered around wider tires (just like the Discus wheel range is engineered specifically around wider tires). Finally you can be fast and comfortable all day, every day, with one and the same bike.

Realfast Aerodynamics

As co-founder of Cervélo, our Head of Design Gerard Vroomen loves aerodynamics. Not just the theory, but real world aerodynamics. So we test at 20mph (32kmh) and 30mph (48kmh), we test with bottles and other “difficult parts”, we sometimes even test dirty and muddy bikes. But while the aero details of the Strada range stand out, he is proudest that it has started a worldwide trend towards more tire clearance on aero bikes. Comfort & speed.

3TICR Aero Cable Integration

Running cables internally can be nice and potentially reduce aero drag, but what is the point if you end up with a very wide and bulky headtube with oversized bearings to house the cables?

Our goal was to hide the cables but keep the headtube narrow and keeping the same narrow bearings of the original Strada. Quite the puzzle but the result is stunning. In the front view you will see our bearings are still narrow and the headtube even thins down in-between them. In the side view, you’ll see the headtube is deeper and with a full aero “nose”, taking full advantage of the new UCI rules.

To top it off, the cables hide inside the Apto 3TICR stem, which uses the original minimalist Apto stem shape but with cable guidance. Beauty meets functionality as this gives you full adjustability to find the perfect fit. Because in the end, aerodynamics means nothing if you cannot stay comfortably in your aero position. 3TICR is compatible with SRAM and Shimano electronic drivetrains, both 2x and 1x.
