Painstakingly constructed from triple butted 3Al/2.5V titanium the Hurricane Audax frame makes maximum use of titanium's unique material properties. Elegantly good looking and offering striking performance for long days in the saddle who couldn't fail to be impressed by the sight of this beautifully finished, hand built, disk brake equipped titanium Audax frame.
Titanium has a justly deserved reputation as a wonder material. No other metal matches it for strength-to-weight ratio and no carbon frame can beat it for durability and ride feel. It blends the low weight and efficiency of carbon with the handling feel of the best steel bikes. Titanium bikes always stand out from the crowd with looks and longevity that are peerless at any price; with a cast metal head badge and subtle brushed 'Invasion Stripe' detailing the Hurricane is no exception. Everyone should have at least one titanium road bike in their collection.
Created for Planet X by master frame builder Mark Reilly the Hurricane was conceived as the ultimate, disc brake equipped Audax machine. Triple butted main tubes contribute to the Hurricane's lightweight feel while carefully ovalized and tapered rear triangle tubes provide subtle vertical compliance that helps to smooth out the longest, roughest rides. Ovalized seat and down tubes mate to a 68mm bottom bracket shell to provide a firm, responsive pedaling platform. A longer wheelbase and slacker head angle than the Spitfire deliver predictable handling and puts you in a riding position that's perfectly suited to 100 mile+ day long epic rides.
Fair weather or foul the Hurricane doesn't care, with powerful hydraulic disc brakes the Hurricane is a bike ready for all reasons and seasons. If you find that modern carbon bikes leave you cold, spread your wings and give the Hurricane a try.
