Planet X XLS Cross Frame

Planet X XLS Cross Frame

We've always led the field with our carbon frames, and now we're ready to show our hand in the growing market of disc only cyclocross frames. Using our years of experience with carbon fibre construction our designers have created a race tuned package that will keep you in front of the bunch.

Disc only is the way forward for cyclocross, and with more and more manufacturers offering disc compatibility on their groupsets, this is no flash in the pan product change. It's a performance upgrade that makes sense in muddy CX racing as much as it would if you ran this as a dirty road bike.

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."

It's PF30 bottom bracket and tapered headtube are features that allow us to get the most out of the carbon. 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 pavé. 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.

We'll leave it to Crossjunkie to sum up the bike - read his review here -

This is the new definitive cross race winner. Available direct only Planet X. Limited quantities available, so don't delay. Order yours here.
