A stiff frame for ultimate power transfer. Wider tires for an unexpected wealth of comfort. A 1x drivetrain to improve aerodynamics and save 400g in component weight. And aerodynamics optimized around all these features! The Strada blends together benefits in a way no other aero road bike can. Do you want speed or comfort? Both! Wider tires are one of the biggest factors in road bike comfort by reducing the shock of cracks, curbs, and cobbles. But aerodynamics are also important on such rides, and wide tires tend to test poorly in the wind tunnel. 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. With all aero road bike developments of the past 20 years, the drivetrain was never really tackled. So we did. The BB area - with frame, crank, chainrings, front derailleur, water bottles and rider legs - leaves little room for the air to pass through. A single ring drivetrain eliminates the front derailleur and inner ring. Thus it reduces frontal area and creates space for unobstructed air flow. And with modern cassettes (in particular the 3T Overdrive and Bailout), you still have all the gears you need.
