3T’s Exploro frame drew the most buzz at this year’s PressCamp, and it’s easy to see why. Like the Gear of the Year–winning Open UP, this is a drop-handlebar do-almost-everything bike. It can run 700c wheels and tires up to 40c, or 650b wheels with up to 2.1-inch mountain bike tires. It also stands out for its massive square downtube that the company says was designed for maximum aerodynamic performance. With a road race–leaning geometry, this isn’t the bike for your next bikepacking adventure, but if you’re gunning to stand on the podium of the next Dirty Kanza, it should definitely be on your short list. Mediums are available now, with the other three sizes showing up soon.
