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!

Full carbon construction gives a superbly light chassis - leading to characteristics, UK Cyclocross Blogger "CrossJunkie" refers to as "snappy handling and a very stiff response to hard out of the saddle efforts."

We'll leave it to Crossjunkie to sum up the bike - read his review here - http://crossjunkie.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/new-team-bikes-planet-x-pro-carbon-xls.html

This is the new definitive cross race winner.

Its BSA Threaded Bottom Bracket allows for easy fitting and good bearing life in muddy British conditions. Big cross sections make for solid power transfer, but optimal layup and subtle monocoque shaping allows for compliance to keep you from being jarred from the path. Take note of the flattened top tube - it makes the ride better and it also means the bike sits on your shoulder nicely. Carbon's great like that.

Please Note: this frame is designed to run a top pull front derailleur such as Shimano's CX70. If you want to run a conventional road front derailleur then you will need to buy a pulley.

  • Note: Headset not included; available for purchase - model: FSA No.42 ACB/MT.
