Description

There's more to the new Pro Carbon than just legendary performance, incredible value for money, stylish good looks and lustrous new paint jobs. The Pro Carbon has been perfected over years of continuous refinement that's why it's the obvious choice for new, returning and experienced cyclists.

Groupset:Shimano's Sora 9-speed groupset benefits from all the trickle down technology available from its more expensive brethren. Expect to find the slickest 9-speed shifting you've ever tried combined with powerful braking and wonderful ergonomics. Shimano Sora offers a price to a performance level that is ideal for the novice cyclists- we even use it on our own winter bikes, it's that good.

With a modern updated design and materials selection and finishing Sora fits right in with Shimano's higher spec groupsets. Because it's targetted at the novice/recreational cyclist Shimano has chosen sensible chainring and cassette combinations that make climbing a breeze. Sora is the perfect modern groupset for any cyclist getting back into cycling and that's why we chose it.

Bike Radar said about the pro Carbon: "The Planet X screams value for money from the rooftops with a megaphone." And: "When it comes to value for money, the bar is very high for what you can buy for 1,000, but if anything, the Planet X has raised it a notch or two."

The frame itself needs no introduction. By far our most popular road frame, with a lightweight and comfortable carbon-fibre construction that has seen it chosen time and time again for racing, sportives and Sunday morning club runs. The geometry sits nicely between aggression and endurance, with a riding position that you can comfortably maintain for hours, while still having the aerodynamics and snappy handling to put the power down for the sprint to the next road sign.

Wheelset: Shimano WH-501's are a solid and smooth wheelset that presents exceptional price-to-performance ratio. Shimano know how to build quality wheels at affordable price-points. These WH-501's are a great upgrade for many bikes and can be trusted for years of great service!

We capped this build off with high-quality Kalloy finishing kit, Shimano clincher wheels. We use these on much higher specced bikes in our line-up so you can be sure that you're getting quality wheels. With a frame of this quality and groupset and finishing kit that majors on smart design and lightweight performance you're getting a superb bike for your money, one that you'll enjoy on club runs and sportives for years to come.
