3T Strada Due Team Frame Set
STRADA DUE: Wide Tire Aero Road 2X
- The Strada Due runs 2x electronic drivetrains from Shimano, Campagnolo & SRAM.
- And you still get the 30mm tire fit & aerodynamics designed around such tires.
The biggest factor in road bike comfort are the tires; they provide more compliance than any other part of the bike. Wider tires are better at reducing shocks from cracks, curbs, cobbles and potholes, which is why they are the norm at Paris- Roubaix. Wider tires also have lower rolling resistance, because their shorter contact patch requires less bending by the casing.
In addition, wider tires offer an advantage on long and multi-day rides, reducing the steady drain on a rider’s energy level caused by high-frequency road buzz. But aerodynamics are also important on such rides, and wide tires tend to test poorly in the windtunnel. However, that is to be expected if you test them with frames and parts optimized for narrow tires. The STRADA is the first aero road frame optimized for wider tires, 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.
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 seattube.
