At last! The result of extensive testing by Planet X's resident cycling legend Mark Lovatt, these 52mm carbon clincher wheels are fast, light and tough.
With 52mm rims, these wheels weigh just 1796g per pair, for quick acceleration and nimble handling. Because they have CNC-machined aluminium sidewalls, your brakes will still work properly in all conditions and with a polished 3k weave they look great too.
The 52mm depth makes these wheels great fast-riding all-rounders. Use them for crits, general racing, time trials, triathlon and group rides.
Both our new carbon clincher wheels are built on lightweight hubs with 6061 aluminium bodies and high-strength 7075 aluminium axles and freehub body. They turn on super-smooth Japanese-made sealed bearings - two in the front hub, and four in the rear, so they're durable and easy to rebuild.
Hubs and rims are joined by cold-drawn, double-butted bladed spokes made from Sandvik T302 stainless steel. Twenty spokes up front is the optimum balance between aerodynamics and strength, while 24 spokes in the rear means these wheels won't let you down. No odd spoke designs here either - we've used standard J-head spokes so you can get a replacement anywhere without taking out a second mortgage.
Excellent products great value for money
Look great, can't wait to try them out.
Great service & delivered early
Sleek & fast just like me
Superb value I love the feel they have and sound they make when pushing
very bad, non-existent. it's not with me.
I still don't have my order, it's been two weeks. They use Yodel for deliveries - rubbish. they don't come when they say they will, you can't speak to a human being, just some automated rubbish. "we've left cards" when they haven't. poor poor poor. never buying from a company that uses yodel again. not the first time, will certainly be the last time I get a delivery from yodel.
Spot on well happy.
Thanks Planet X wheel are fantastic. They came well packaged for delivery and they look great on
Planet X delivery service was excellent, however it does come with reservations. Delivery to the Sheffield store was prompt and efficient using click and collect. When I went to collect the items from Store the customer service was shocking to say the least. I required some inner tubes and was passed from pillow to post until I found their location within the store and then no advice was offered. I asked the customer assistant the price of a pair of mitts and he said, I quote 'I don't know, they are about 12' he lost my custom straight away, firstly he should know and secondly why did he not offer to find out their correct price! Feel very let down Planet X
Great wheel set for the money, really pleased with these.
They sound great, can be a little bit twitchy if you cross an unexpected side wind.
Planet X always provide excellent service and their prices are very competitive.
Hub is noisy but wheels are great
Great value for money good quality fast running wheels
Very helpful service from my original call, updating on progress to receiving the new bike a day early. The bike is awesome.... light, great looking and the carbon clinchers really set it off.
