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 every cyclist who aspires to better.
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. The Pro Carbon Ultegra 6800 pairs our most popular road frame with our best-selling groupset. Kitted out with race-ready Fulcrum Racing Sport clincher wheels and luxury finishing kit from Selcof and San Marco, it's a potent combination.
The comfortable 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.
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."
When 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 its affordable pricing, and it certainly is that. But it also provides better performance than many more expensive options, often 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 Ultegra 6800 delivers the performance, quality and comfort you want at a better price.
