3T Strada Due Team Road Frameset
The ultimate aero road frameset, now designed for a 2 x electronic drivetrain. The perfect blend of stiffness and aero performance with added comfort thanks to the improved 30mm tyre clearance, The 3T Due is the 2 x version of the much loved Strada frameset
Wide Tyre Optimisation
One of the biggest factor’s in road bike comfort are the tyres; they provide more compliance than any other part of the bike. Wider tyres are better at reducing shocks from terrible road surfaces which is why they are the norm on the rough cobbles of Paris Roubaix. In addition, wider tyres offer an advantage on longer rides, reducing the steady drain on a rider’s energy level caused by high-frequency road buzz.
Aerodynamics are also very important, and wider tyres tend to destroy air flow. However, The Strada Due is the first aero road frame optimized for wider tyres, so finally you can be fast and comfortable all the time, from the cobbles to the climbs. All day, every day, with one and the same bike.
3T strongly believe in 1x drivetrains for many riders and situations. But they also know there are riders and situations where 2x still makes more sense. With the Strada Due, 3T have worked hard to keep the seat tube as narrow as on the original Strada, so that the airflow is disturbed as little as possible by the addition of the front derailleur hanger and the derailleur itself.
The Strada Due is only compatible with electronic drivetrains. Without limitation, it is compatible with all SRAM eTap and Shimano Di2 road groups. For Campagnolo EPS, please note that its seatpost battery is very long, so on smaller sizes, there is a limit to how low you can position the seat before the battery touches the curved part of the seat tube.
At 3T they design for real-world aerodynamics. This means 3T test at 20mph and 30mph in the wind-tunnel, they also test there bikes with added bottles and other parts for aero optimization. But most importantly, 3T want to design frames that are fast with modern tyres sizes to give the rider the best results in a real world conditions
Please Note: The 3T Strada Due is only compatible with an electric groupset, you cannot run a mechanical groupset on this frame.
