PX Clinchers Best in Bike Radar!

Bike Radar just released a comprehensive review of the world's best carbon aero and disc wheels. Planet X were up against all the big boys were including Shimano, Reynolds and Vision, and you'll never guess who came out best...

 

Our modestly priced 52mm Carbon Clinchers scooped the prestigious "Best Wheelset Under £1000" in this week's test. With an RRP of just £499 and current sale price of just £399 a pair they offer superb performance with undisputed industry beating value. Plus as an extra tempter at the moment you can bag a free pair of tyres and tubes with this awesome bundle deal on the 60mm version.

We spent a long time on our new Carbon Clinchers. It's not an easy product to get right. Carbon rims work better with a tubular tyre as it means the rim profile is shallower, and therefore intrinsically stronger. In designing the Carbon Clinchers we discarded several prototype designs in the R&D and testing process. Our ex-pro and head mechanic Mark Lovatt wasn't happy for a long time, but finally, we got the rim design bang on.

Equally, the whole Bike Radar article makes interesting and informative reading, explaining topics like rim profile, spoke design and the why's and wherefores of tubulars versus clinchers. It also gives you an unbiased look at the market place as a whole.

Compulsive reading for anyone in the market for a set of carbon wheels!

The wheels are available in 52mm and 60mm deep section rims:
