Even by our own high standards, this time we've really out done ourselves. The legendary, award-winning Planet X Pro Carbon with Shimano Ultegra components is now available for an unbelievable £999.99. Nobody else has even come close to offering a bike of this specification for under a grand.
Constructed using Toray T700 carbon, the Pro Carbon has become known as the perfect do-it-all introduction to carbon road bikes. Equally at home on the commute or the climb, this Ultegra build surpasses the already lofty stature of previous Pro Carbon builds.
We know Ultegra on a bike of this price is unheard of, and we're not just giving you an Ultegra front mech, we're giving you a whole gearing system, from the carbon Dual Control STI shifters, providing superior tactile feedback for powerful, yet controlled performance with comfortable operation, right through to the lightweight front and rear derailleurs give you the flawless shifting that Ultegra has become known for, and will no doubt be a distinct improvement on your previous groupset. The bottom line with Ultegra is that in both weight and performance wise it's comparable, or almost indistinguishable, from its bigger brother Dura-Ace, which is quite an accolade we're sure you'll agree.
Elsewhere the Shimano theme continues with Shimano 172.5mm, 50-34t chainset, brakeset and Shimano R500 clincher wheels. We've also put to use our own Planet X 3D Forged 2014 stem, Strada Compact Lite bars and Superlight seatpost. No compromises, just quality kit.
With options to upgrade your tyres, saddle and seatpost, you can make this bike your own.
There's a reason why we can offer this to you at the price it is. We do things differently at Planet X. No large, lavish advertising campaigns, no big overheads and no middlemen. Only bikes of unrivalled calibre, built by us to the highest standards here in Sheffield.

All frame size recommendations are approximate. 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' torso length. If you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for a slightly shorter stem. If you think you are borderline between sizes, and you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for the smaller frame size. If you have shorter legs and a longer torso, go for the larger frame size to get the extra top tube length.
As the frame sizes increase, so does the length of the head tube. If you are inflexible or perhaps have a history of back problems, consider going for a larger frame size. This will increase the relative height of the handlebars making the position less “extreme”. The larger frame will also have a longer top tube, so you’ll need to compensate for this with a shorter stem.

Great Bike, ridden for 3 months pretty much daily and it is a great ride. Only let down by the saddle for me, but that's a personal preference and has now been replaced.On arrival there was some cable damage to the rear brake cable. the Planet X team were quick to resolve this issue, even though i am in Australia. Thanks
My first carbon bike and I can truly say this bike is amazing! The kit you get for the price tag is unbelievable. The ultegra group set on a full carbon for under 1000 there is no other bike that can touch this. It handles so well and the difference in weight and power on hills has changed the way I now ride. I would recommend Planet X to anybody for speed of service, quality of build and fantastic equipment. I would give this bike 10 stars if there was an option.
Haven't bought it yet, still saving and will be getting it ready for the Ride London 100. But having thoroughly researched the market, as anyone would spending this amount of money. You can't find a carbon bike with these quality components with the weight ANYWHERE. Just wish they had a shop in SW London.
Thought i would join the 21st century and got this through my bike to work scheme in matt black,in the words of my 6 year old son AWESOME.He was right had it a week now goes like a dream now my trusty 18 year old cannondale is sitting in the corner feeling sorry for it's self,i thought that bike was light till i got this.Thank you planet x.
Got this bike in gloss red looks awesome!! the bike blow me away spent a bit on customising but well worth it! Got the bike to go across Ireland 3 days 360 miles should be easy on this bike light and fast!
Great lightweight bike, bought with Christmas discount of 100. Shimano Ultegra 6700 groupset and full carbon frame cant be cost cheaper. I installed Look Keo pedals, with it my small size bike weight 7.8 kg.Sory for bad English :)
Had it 3 days, first ride was excellent it wants you to sit in the saddle and power up hill and when you do get out the saddle no power is lost at all, on decents just point the bike where you want it to go and it will go there, just remember to brake of course, the ride is ultra smooth comparing it to my other bike which os an alloy frame with carbon forks and carbon/kavlar handle bars, the gears shift nicely I am used to campagnolo shifting, this will be my summer/ sportive bike, my bike was in the clearance sale a week be4 Christmas and I got a bargain as I got added extras FSA team issue stem and handle bars & a prologo nago evo saddle all 3 worth 200 more and with 100 off means I saved 300. 1 last thing it cane with the basic planet x tire on my ride out on them for a full slick tire they stood up well I would of put on my conti GP4000 but did not have time so as the planet x tires did a good job ill leave them on.Overall great bike better then all of the sub 1500 bike market so dont be an idot get this bike.
Had my pro carbon now for nearly a month, ordered with a few upgrades (wheels and tyres) and can honestly say that I love it :) good customer service - stealth matt black is the way to go ;) Fantastic spec for the money tooI've even bought a 2nd hand Nanolight as a winter bike #convertedtoPlanetX.........
Love it. If your budget is a grand then there is no reason to settle for less by going elsewhere. The Ultegra gearing is so smooth that I had to look down to check I'd change gear on my first few rides. It's my first carbon bike and when you put your foot down the power transfer and acceleration is thrilling. I upgraded the wheels to shimano RS10 which are light, strong and look great in white rims. Currently enjoying my rides learning to throw this bike around corners and dealing with the extra speed.
when i tell people i bought this bike for a mere 1000 they cant believe it, full carbon bike with ultegra groupset, i'd love to know how planet x make a profit on this bike.i was initially concerned about the wheels on this bike but they are pretty light and give me a better ride than the mavic cosmic elites i previously used.absolutely fantastic bike for the price. i wont be looking elsewhere for my future bikes because nowhere offers this kind of value for money
What a great bike. Love it. I'm fairly new to road cycling. This bike has cemented my love of the sport. The spec is amazing. The bike is comfortable and fast. When it comes to a replacement Planet X is where I'll be heading. Keep it up guys. Can I give it more than 5 stars??
