3T un­veils Aqua Blue’s new bike

Cycling Weekly - - News -

Aqua Blue Sport have re­vealed the bike that they will be us­ing for the 2018 sea­son: a 3T Strada with only a sin­gle chain­ring.

The bike, which will be painted in the team’s blue and gold colours, will be equipped with SRAM’S Force 1x groupset, which is de­signed to work a sin­gle chain­ring at the front and a wide-range cas­sette at the back.

Al­though the rest of the com­po­nent choices are yet to be con­firmed, the choice of a sin­gle-ring set-up will make Aqua Blue the first ma­jor pro­fes­sional team to use such a sys­tem, and could present a few chal­lenges to the rid­ers if they need to take wheels from neu­tral ser­vice.
