To call BMW experts in the field of automotive manufacturing is perhaps not doing the Bavarian car company the justice they deserve. And while they know their own strengths, they’re also self-aware enough to know their own weaknesses. That’s why, when it came time to craft a special-edition BMW gravel bicycle, they called on the leading manufacturers at Italy’s 3T.
In the words of Gaston Streiger, the Head of BMW’s Lifestyle division, “3T was a natural choice for us, as 3T’s Exploro model is the best gravel bike available[…]” And the two brands have ensured that this special model is loaded with some of the most impressive features — including an aerodynamic full carbon frame, the world’s lightest carbon aero cranks, a Brooks leather seat and matching grips, Fulcrum alloy wheels, durable Schwalbe One Speed tires, and a Shimano GRX groupset. Available soon at BMW Experience Centers, this gravel bike is probably not going to fit in your M3’s trunk, but its an exceptional pedal-powered companion vehicle nonetheless.
