Tritao (aka Triton) Debuts New Aveiro 3D Ti Gravel Bike

Tritao (aka Triton) is debuting its latest gravel bike called the Aveiro3D Ti, which now hails from all places Portugal. But, what’s with the name change?

Triton first came across everyone’s radar (at least on these shores) during the Russian brand’s outing at the North American Handmade Bike Show (NAHBS) back in 2018, displaying some lust-worthy road and MTB specimens in all manner of titanium.

However, it appears for political and economic reasons, Triton decided to leave Russia in favor of Portuguese soil and retool its business, thus the new name Tritao.

“The name comes from the region where these bikes are manufactured,” says co-founder Dmitry Nechaev. “We are new people here and we wanted to pay tribute to the region and the people who welcomed us here. The geometry is the result of my rides across local forests where at any minute a smooth gravel path might turn into a rocky technical descent. Not safe for a classic gravel bike but a lot of control with Aveiro 3D.”

In any case, as its name implies, the Aveiro forgoes a traditional CNC approach to frame building in favor of 3D additive printing for its 6/4 titanium dropouts and chainstay yoke, while the main frame relies on seamlessly welded 3/2.5 tubes.

Designed around 1x drivetrains, the Aveiro features a fully integrated cockpit with full internal routing that’s compatible with both electronic and mechanical drivetrains, with enough clearance to accommodate tires up to a whopping 700x58mm or 29×2.25” tires.

But, for customers who still desire a 2x set-up, Tritao is willing to do so.

Elsewhere, the Aveiro is treated to three bottle cage mounts, while customers can also opt to have toptube, rack, fender and more bottle cage mounts added, as well as Boost rear axle spacing.

Additionally, the frame is designed around a 30.9mm dropper post, but a shim can be used to make it compatible with a standard 27.2 seatpost.

The Aveiro is available in sizes ranging from XXS (48) to XXL (60), along with a number of custom build options, finishes and anodizing.

  • Frame only €2,500  
  • Frameset €2,900 
  • Complete bikes from €4900.
  • Basic setup includes: SRAM Rival AXS XPLR 1×12, Deda gravel wheels and cockpit with 50mm tubeless tires
  • Bike as shown is €7500
