3T Launches Custom Colour and Illumina Components

 

New 3T paint finishes are designed to help with the finishing touches, as we all know how us cyclists can be a funny lot when it comes to how a bike should look… To quote The Velominiati, “Match the saddle to the bars and the tires to black; or match the bars to the color of the frame at the top of the head tube and the saddle to the color of the frame at the top of the seat tube and the tires to the color where they come closest to the frame; or match the saddle and the bars to the frame decals; or… Black, black, black”. 3T may have found a way to stick to the rules and add a little individuality to your bike.

 

The new range is called 3T Custom Colour. 3T have worked with one of Italy’s top paint specialists to produce a durable paint that can be applied over the high gloss clearcoat of their carbon fibre components.

The 3T Custom Colour range comes in six solid colours: Blue, Orange, Green, Pink, Light Blue and Yellow. The special finish produces dense, saturated colours that really stand out. The graphics are applied sparingly and use 3T’s circle motif. The circle motif indicates the product is from the road range, as 3T use a circle to represent their road range and a triangle for mtb components.

While black is always ‘in’ as far as the fashionistas are concerned, some of us like a little more choice. To this end 3T have also added another finish to choose from. Dubbed 3T Illumina this replaces the high gloss, clear top coat for a solid white finish, that also has the 3T Custom Colour highlights.

 

But that’s not the end of the story, 3T Illumina has a little surprise up it’s sleeve. Take the bike out at night and the components will emit a luminous glow!

This ghostly glow could be prove to be an extra help in low light conditions and anything that helps a rider stand out on the road is a bonus. Just be prepared for the ‘Scooby Doo’ or ‘Casper the Friendly Ghost’ jokes!

 

At the moment the 3T Custom Colour3T and 3T Illumina finishes are only available on 3T’s Ergonova LTD bars, Arx LTD stem and Ionic-25 LTD seatpost. The LTD range sits at the top of 3T’s range and boast a combined weight of 500g.
