The Planet X Typhoon sits alongside the PickenFlick at the top table of titanium cyclocross frames. Designed by master frame builder Marc Reilly and created from agile and responsive triple butted 3Al/2.5V titanium the Typhoon is seriously fast. Fitted with disc brakes and with grippy tyres you'll be pushing the Typhoon hard into every bend.
The Typhoon stands as testament to the frame builder's art. Titanium has a justly deserved reputation as a wonder metal and the performance that we've been able to extract from the Typhoon is simply stunning. Agile, efficient and comfortable in equal measure it's a seriously competitive cyclocross bike that will be making its presence known on CX courses all over Europe.

All frame size recommendations are approximate, please bear in mind this bike has a sloping top-tube Seat Tube measurements appear 2cm shorter than would be typical with a level Top Tube. A good fit will also depend on the correct choice of stem length, correct bike set-up for the rider and riding style.
Correct frame size choice can vary greatly with riders' body proportions. If you think you are borderline between sizes we strongly recommend trying your intended bike for size especially if you at the bottom of the smallest frame size or top of the largest frame size.
