The Planet X RT-58v2 frame is crafted from 6061-T6 alloy and utilises a refined Sportive geometry for a powerful, smooth ride. A carbon bladed fork helps soak up the lumps and bumps of the worst road surfaces while tracking straight and true for pinpoint accurate handling. A taller head tube and longer chainstays combine to deliver a more upright and comfortable riding position that's perfect for long days in the saddle.

Whether built up with entry level parts or dressed in the best that Shimano and SRAM have to offer the RT-58 alloy V2 is a confidence inspiring ride. It's been tested on the best and worst roads that the Peak District has to offer and it's passed every test with flying colours and now it's ready for you to ride. Stop dreaming and get riding today with the RT-58 Alloy V2.

    I bought this as a winter build as my steel was a little on the heavy side for winter club rides with the fast boys. First impressions out of the box were great; looks the business in midnight blue - very smart. The build went relatively smoothly, with perhaps the only slight disappointment being the excess paint in the rear dropouts making them too small. I overcame this by carefully filing the inner surfaces of the dropouts back to the alloy - all sorted. :) Final build weight, using Campag Veloce and Zonda wheelset, came in at a very respectable 8.8kg without mudguards. I imagine you could really weight-weenie this down even further with higher groupsets etc. First ride didn't disappoint either - this things zips along and doen't feel unnecessarily harsh on our wonderful British roads! For the money this frameset punches well above its weight. Bargain! Would I buy another? Heck yeah !! (dropped one star for the rear dropouts - but I'm just being super picky)
