No one builds carbon road bike like Planet X. Because we control every step of production we ensure amazing quality and performance at prices no one else can match. With the reintroduction of this classic pairing we've pushed ourselves harder than ever, every step of the way, to bring you the very best road bike for your money. The result: our best-selling Pro Carbon frame, kitted out with Shimano's race-level Ultegra 6800 11-speed groupset, Fulcrum Sports Racing wheels and our own high-quality finishing kit.
The comfortable, versatile frame makes for a bike that can and will do everything on a road and a wide range of customization options allow you to tailor the bike to your needs and your uses. With some of the best drivetrain performance on the market today, it's a bike you won't want to upgrade for years to come. Weighing in at only 7.9kg for a medium, it's light too.
The versatile geometry of the Pro Carbon frame excels in any number of road applications. The mid-sized headtube keeps you in a moderate riding position, neither high enough to compromise aerodynamics nor low enough to be uncomfortable on longer efforts. The high quality Toray T700 carbon fibre construction provides stiffness where you need it and compliance where you want it. Skinny seat stays soak up road buzz and bumps while the compact front triangle and tapered headtube provide front-end stiffness and confident, responsive handling. Relaxing club rides, tough training sessions, challenging sportives or competitive races- the Pro Carbon shines at them all. Move your saddle forward and add some clip-on aero bars and you've got a great platform for trying out time trial or triathlon. It's not just a jack of all trades: it comes pretty close to mastering them all as well.
W we say that you're getting a bike with a full Shimano Ultegra 6800 groupset, that's what you're getting. Brakes, derailleurs, shifters, crankset, the whole hog. Full integration, full compatibility; all components working as intended in perfect tandem with each other to provide 11 speeds of smooth, assertive shifting.
The Pro Carbon is often suggested as a great first road bike because of the pricing, and it certainly is that. But it also provides better performance than many more expensive options, matching the 'best bikes' of seasoned racers. Partnering it with Ultegra 6800 just puts it in a whole new category. Whatever your requirements, whatever roads you want to ride, the Planet X Pro Carbon 6800 is the bike you want at a better price.
