Planet X Spitfire Titanium Road Frameset Planet X Spitfire Titanium Road Frameset

Titanium has a well-earned reputation as a wonder material. No other metal can match it for strength-to-weight ratio and no carbon frame can beat it for durability and ride feel. It blends the handling feel of the best steel bikes with the low weight and efficiency of carbon. Titanium bikes always stand out from the crowd with looks and longevity that are peerless at any price; with cast pewter head badge and subtle brushed 'Invasion Stripe' detailing the Spitfire is no exception. Everyone should have at least one titanium road bike in their collection.

Designed by master frame builder Mark Reilly, the Spitfire was created first and foremost as a competitive road machine. It offers predictable handling with a moderately aggressive riding position that will be instantly familiar to anyone who's spent time aboard our EC-130E Aero Road bike. The Spitfire's rear triangle features ovalized and tapered frame tubes that provide subtle vertical compliance. Triple butted, ovalized seat and down tubes mate to a 68mm bottom bracket shell to provide a firm, responsive pedaling platform.

With an oversized head tube offering maximum steering precision we've paired the Spitfire frame up with a lightweight, 375g full carbon, monocoque construction fork. Designed to offer a touch of shock absorbing compliance this high performance fork is the perfect match to the Spitfire, together they offer striking performance with a welcome touch of comfort.

If you're hunting for a new road bike but find that modern carbon bikes leave you cold, spread your wings and give the Spitfire a try.

    I bought my Spitfire at the end of 2018 as a frame and forks. Built it up over December with Tiagra and DT Swiss wheels both of which had been on my previous bike (ally frame & carbon forks) so other than the frame, exactly the same. Now everything youve heard about titanium frames is true, their ability to soak up vibrations is amazing, I really cant believe how smooth the ride is. Only thing is just remember to buy all the bits youll need. You buy a frame & fork, thats all you get. Youre going to need a headset, barrel adjusters and a cable guide to go under the bottom bracket. All these things are available from Planet X, if you want a proper fit thats probably the best place to buy them. Overall the quality looks to be excellent, the welds are really neat and the frame puts what little power I can apply straight to the back wheel. Recommended.
