It was merely months ago when 3T announced their partnership with UCI Pro Continental Team Aqua Blue Sport and their plan to supply the team with the Strada, 3T’s dedicated single-chain ring, disc-brake only machine which we covered quite a bit since summer. 

We were quietly told during InterBike to be on the lookout for the team paint job and now the young Irish team just lifted the cover off their team steed.

We must admit that we are smitten with the clean blue and gold theme with the minimal logos (thank you).

Besides working with 3T, Aqua Blue also announced their partnership with SRAM where the team will be equipped with SRAM’s native Force 1 drivetrain with hydraulic HRD disc-brakes to handle the braking department. A sponsorship they’re so jazzed about that they made a video for it:

It’ll be interesting to see a team racing with only one ring and hydraulic disc brake while the rest of the peloton continues to ride with two rings and caliper brakes for the most part.

What do you think?
