Planet X XLA Apex 1 Bike Planet X XLA Apex 1 Bike

The best value for money aluminium cyclocross bike you can buy? Possibly. The XLA is designed to deliver a huge chunk of the performance of our incredible full-carbon XLS cyclocross bikes, but at a fraction of the price. Pairing a carbon bladed fork with a double butted hydroformed 6061-T6 alloy frame has helped keep both the weight and price down. There's no other cyclocross bike that we've ridden that offers so much performance for so little money.

You'll probably like it so much that you'll start riding it into work every day- we did!
