The Planet X Pro Carbon Frame: at the heart of a good bike is a great frame. The Pro Carbon delivers legendary performance, incredible value for money, stylish good looks and features amazing componentry. Perfected over years of continuous refinement, the Pro Carbon is one of the very best choices for new, returning and experienced cyclists alike.
Our most popular road frame is the Pro Carbon because its lightweight, comfortable and built to last using high quality Toray 700 carbon fibre. This expertly constructed frame has incredible stiffness to efficiently translate every watt of leg power into forward momentum, whilst also encorporating desirable compliance to soak up unwanted road buzz. Designed with a compact front triangle and tapered headtube, the bike handles confidently, responding instantly to rider input.
The Pro Carbon is chosen time-and-again for racing, sportives, club runs and general cycling. This is due to its intelligent and refined geometry that suits both sports and endurance riders, with a neutral riding position sustainable for hours in the saddle. With the saddle positioned further forward and a pair of clip-on aero bars, hey-presto, you've got a great platform for trying Time Trials and Triathlons. With this level of versatility, its easy to see why the Pro Carbon is such a popular choice.
Note: this frame does not include headset, seat clamp, barrel adjusters or front mech clamp. These can be purchased separately.

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.
