Full Description

Description

Cyclocross is growing fast. Drawn by the fun of the mud and the thrill of the racing, cyclists are taking to the 'cross course in droves. CX is a balance of speed and skill and the Planet X XLS is an eternal favourite of the scene, thanks to its contemporary and refined carbon chassis and race-tuned geometry. Whether youre looking to upgrade to carbon or discs, the XLS is the perfect place to start.

The XLS represents the evolution of technology within cyclocross, namely, the introduction of disc brakes. If you're a road rider that's never experienced disc stopping power, you'll be thrilled with their performance. No longer must you compromise on speed - on discs you can brake later into corners and shred mud like never before, as the discs stay clean. This performance increase is even more outstanding when coupled with the XLS' lightweight carbon frame and fork. We've cleverly flattened profile top-tube for comfy shouldering over the roughest off-road terrain, too. Theres big tyre clearance, too, to avoid mud clogging. With features like these, we've made sure the XLS is future-proof.

The XLS frame is beefed-up around the main frame joints for extra strength so it can easily handle the rough stuff. In fact, the XLS wants to be ridden hard, to show off how efficiently it transfers every watt of pedal-power into speed. Go on, drop the hammer, search for the limit, gap the field.

Of course, with a bike this tough, theres the added advantage of using it for multiple types of riding. Wash off the race mud and enjoy its versatility as a commuter or road bike. Put some slick-tyres in there for the weekend club run. The XLS is quickly gaining popularity for good reason!

Groupset: SRAM Apex1 HRD The new entry level skinny tyre focussed groupset from SRAM is selected here in the hydraulic disk brake version. Maximum stopping power, huge gear ratio options and the security and simplicity of a single front chainring. Apex 1 is set to blow the gravel adventure market wide open.  

Wheelset: Gipiemme Roccia Disc. Gipiemme are well known for their alloy and carbon fibre race wheels, now they've put their all into creating a practical, value for money 29"/ 700c disc brake wheelset. Built for road and off-road use the Gipiemme Roccia is supremely versatile, it's  equally at home on our cyclocross bikes as it would any of our Gravel Adventure bikes. Disc brake ready and built to last the Roccia is the perfect  do it all 700c wheelset.

Finishing Kit: weve capped this bike build off with high quality finishing kit from Italian aces Selcof and our own Planet X pro range. With a combined package of this quality, you're getting a truly excellent bike and amazing value for money.

Please note: black frame colour finish consists of clear gloss lacquer over raw carbon, so you can see the beauty of the carbon weave!
