Last year 3T started the STRADA project with phase 1: the STRADA TEAM frameset. Earlier this year they added phase 2: the STRADA PRO complete bike. Today 3T is proud to launch phase 3: the STRADA DUE.
"When people talk to us about the STRADA, it is usually the 1x drivetrain that gets the most attention,” Rene Wiertz, CEO of 3T, elaborates. "It’s very visible and a bit controversial, so that makes sense. But as we’ve said from the start, the most important feature of the STRADA is actually that it is the first aero road bike optimized for wider tires, up to 30mm (..)”.
"But when 3T launched the STRADA, we also said it was our concept bike for what an aero road bike would look like in 5 years,” adds Gerard Vroomen, Head of Design at 3T. "Why did we say 5 years and not today? Because we know that some technologies and people need a bit of time. So 1x already works great for certain people and certain group-sets (..) In other situations, 2x is still preferred (especially with electronic group-sets) -..(..)"
Enter the STRADA DUE, with the same aero and comfort benefits as the original STRADA but designed for electronic 2x drivetrains.
Now riders can enjoy that unique mix of a very stiff, aero frame and the plush ride of up to 30mm tires in combination with the 2x drivetrain of choice.
The STRADA DUE will sit beside the STRADA in 3T line-up and will be available as a TEAM level frameset.
It will also be used by Team Aqua Blue Sport in selected races such as this coming Tour of Austria.
