(Photos/Cory Benson) 3T adds an all-new made-in-Italy carbon gravel bike to their long-running Exploro family with the adventure-ready Extrema Italia. Beefed up for 29″ mountain bike tires to take on faster, rougher adventure races, the Extrema boasts more progressive geometry, a fully-integrated (but adjustable) cockpit, and more hauling capacity than ever.

(Photos/Cory Benson) We already had a sneak peek at the new 3T Extrema back at Eurobike, where we surmised that it may have simply been an updated version of the somewhat similar Ultra that debuted last year. But in fact, this new 29er Extrema Italia does not specifically replace the Ultra (which carries on with 650b wheels).

The 3T Extrema Italia is a completely separate new model aimed more directly at racing long distances off-road, even faster than ever. What’s new?

Big diameter wide tire aerodynamics. The new Extrema uses similar wider tube shapes like refined on last year’s Ultra to minimize aero drag, even with monster knobby 29er MTB tires. The upper downtube is now even bigger at 63mm wide where air transitions off the spinning front wheel and joins airflow over the fork crown. And the lower portion of the downtube now tops out at 73mm wide to smooth airflow over water bottles. 3T Extrema Italia Integrale, all-new carbon fat tire 29er aero adventure gravel bike, made-in-Italy, fully internal cable routing Fully internal cable routing.
