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.

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.
Very quick delivery. impressed.
not in top condition. painting with scratches
Excellent quality and looking forward to building it to my own spec and enjoying riding it....FAST!! Once its built I will add a photo
Very slick and reliable
Rapid friendly replies to online questions. Much appreciated.
Amazing frame. Best cable guides ever, and so the easiest build I've ever done. Very well designed and thought out for the mechanic. After build it is the cleanest/tidiest/most aero front end I've seen. Beats my old cervelo p3 by a mile. Unbelievable value for money this frame. Just buy one.Built mine with the praxis bb30 adapter and run a normal 24mm chainset (I use ultegra hollowtech 2).Worth pointing out the head tube is flared 1/8-1/4 so you'll need something wider than usual to knock on the crown race retainer. I used the regular crown race fitter and a short length of 40mm PVC pipe.
Not used it in anger yet, but so far the build quality is good. Previous experiences of internal cabling was not good. The internal routing thanks to the sleeves was simple. So far, very happy.
