3T Overdrive and Bailout Road 11-speed cassette

The Italian company 3T teamed up with engineering legend Gerard Vroomen to create the 3T STRADA, an aero racing bike uncompromisingly designed for 1×11 drivetrains. The absence of a front derailleur option makes it a weapon for the 2018 professional racing season – a true revolution for professional racing when the correct gearing is chosen. Based on the SRAM XDR body, 3T has created the Overdrive Road, an 11-speed cassette with a 9-32 range which will pave the way for serious 1×11 drivetrain applications (especially the smallest 9t sprocket, which will reduce the limitations of 1×11 drivetrains at high speeds). The cassette is available in two versions for different applications – the Bailout version with smaller gear jumps in the harder gear range (9-10-11-12-13-15-17-19-22-26-32) to be more suited for flat routes, and the Overdrive cassette (9-11-12-13-15-17-19-22-25-28-32), which is spaced more for hilly and mountainous routes.

Weight: 217 g (Bailout) | Price: € 275
