New on the horizon from 3T, white parts! While other companies already offer a number of white parts, the classic Italian company throws their hat in the ring with a better-late-than-never attitude. The limited edition white Team level parts will be available in both road and mountain set ups and must be ordered in a combo with handlebar, stem and seat post. On the mountain bike side of things the combo is being offered with their XIDA flat bar, which sports a 31.8mm clamp area, 0 rise, and 3.5 degrees of back sweep. Next up is the newest stem from 3T, the ARX, which is for both the mountain group and road group. The stem will be offered with a +/- 6 degree angle, 31.8 mm clamp, and available in 10 mm increments from 70mm all they way up to a 140mm stem. The last component of the white mountain package is the DORIC seat post, a 0mm offset, twin bolt design. The DORIC will be available in 27.2 and 31.6 sizes in the 350mm length, and 30.6 and 31.6 size with a 400mm length.
Check out the road group after the break!
In a sea of current white road parts, the new white edition 3T group stands out like most of their products with the addition of red stripes and a trick cut out in the faceplate of the stem that highlights the color of the handlebar underneath. The basis of the road group is a crisp white version of their ever popular ERGONOVA drop bar, in 38, 40, 42, and 44 cm widths. The ARX stem, as stated earlier, is the same for both the road and mountain bike groups. Finally, clamping your seat will be a white version of the DORICO seat post, a 25mm offset post offered in 27.2 and 31.6 sizes both in 350mm lengths. There is no mention of whether the white group will be carbon or not, but based on the fact that all of the previous Team level parts from 3T have been carbon, it’s a pretty safe bet that these will be carbon as well. If your interested, get down to your local bike shop and place an order quick, as these sets are rumored to be very limited.
