Pavé Plus is a cross between classic loaded bike touring and ultra-light backpacking. Using a high performance lightweight bike and borrowing bags from MTB bikepacking the heavy frames and racks of classical bike touring are discarded. The best of both worlds.

Think a road bike that extends your ride to some gravel and roughstuff rather than a gravel bike that takes to the road on occasion.

This is a trip GCN folks made into the Atlas mountains combining road biking to mountain biking and everything in between on the archetype Paveplus bike the 3T Exploro.
