Go to any time trial or triathlon in the UK and youll see at least one Planet X Exocet 2, and for good reason its the fastest bike you can buy for such a low price. The effects are seen everywhere, notably in plummeting Personal Best times around the country and indeed the world.
The Exocet 2 really flies, releasing your full true race-pace potential. Extensive tests have won the Exocet a huge number of accolades right across the sporting spectrum - from professional triathletes and TT racers, to the printed press. The Exocet 2 has been ridden to victory by current and former world champions and No1 ranked athletes in several different triathlon disciplines.
The Exocet 2 frame is our most aerodynamic frame yet, built from high modulus T800 Toray carbon fibre and designed with deep-section teardrop profile tubing. Intelligent and exacting research by the UN National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) has resulted in a frame profile that is as slippery as possible through the air, minimising resistance when youre riding against the clock. An enormous oversized bottom bracket shell provides extreme stiffness to ensure every watt of leg-power makes it to the drivetrain, whilst the seat tube is sculpted to guide air around the rear wheel, allowing it get up to speed and stay there unencumbered by unwanted turbulence.
With a frame package of this quality, you're getting a truly excellent bike and amazing value for money.
Please note: to ensure the longevity of your vivid frame paint, please store away from direct sunlight. UV rays can sometimes fade bright colours, like our Team fluorescent yellow, so please take care to keep it fresh and out of direct sunlight when not in use.

The main features of the Exocet geometry are a short head tube, short top tube and relatively steep seat angle. This geometry is designed primarily to offer great handling, comfort and great aerodynamics when riding on the tri bars.
A well fitting triathlon or time trial bike will typically have a shorter top tube than a road bike for the same rider which draws in the elbows towards the torso to create better aerodynamics and increase comfort.
|Rider Height||Suggested Frame Size|
|5′4″ to 5′7″||Small|
|5′7″ to 5′9″||Medium|
|5′9″ to 6′0″||Large|
|6′0″ to 6′3″||X Large|
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 benefit from 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.

Nice looking frame. Quality it good
Good to deal with,knowledge on items
Great product ast a fantastic price,with quick delivery
I was building this up for a friend, having worked on two others, including an earlier Exocet, and all seemed as before; a quality item which would build up into an excellent Tri/TT bike. When it came time to fit the front mech, I then discovered that the hanger attached to the frame has been changed for a [cheaper?] non adjustable one, unlike those on the previous frames. How are you meant to align an important component accurately? In this case, the rear edge of the gear was way too low, making proper adjustment, and function, nearly impossible. I had to make a shim to achieve the required set up. So a black mark on what would otherwise have been a glowing review. What would the average home mechanic make of it? The finished bike has been built in keeping with the cost of the frame; Mark didn`t have money to throw at it, but the sum of the parts, etc, etc. It being his first real TT bike, his face was a revelation whilst out on the test run. A look of surprise, almost shock, as to how fast he was going. If I was still racing, I would definitely have one of these, and having saved the money, I don`t think that I would be feeling that I had compromised on performance in any way. Ignore the hype.
The frame arrived in good time, and in good condition, via an efficient carrier.
This purchase was to replace a broken frame,but was decided by you that it wasn't covered under warranty.Very poor decision shall not be considering Planet X ever again,I was told about this but gave your company a chance,wasted money.
Not happy with the outcome,won't be recommending Planet X to anyone
Just a few 150 kilometers to test it i have to improve aero position and settings bust quite good sensations first half in 30 days and iron in 60 to succeed ;-)
Great service nice exchnages and well received and packaged
Exocet looks amazing in the flesh. Not built yet but value for money it's unbeatable.
