Introducing the Planet X Maratona

Jamie Burrow Winning the Maratona Dles Dolomites in 2012

In the fast growing world of sportive events. Demands are high for the perfect balance of comfort, light weight, good handling bikes. Our latest offering in the Sportive/Endurance category ticks all of these boxes and more. The Planet X Maratona takes its name from the Queen of all sportive events, the Maratona dles Dolomites. It’s 4230m of climbing Take in the grueling mountain passes of Campolongo, Pordoi, Sella, Gardena, Giao and Valparola. This 138km mountain marathon is the ultimate test of both man and machine. Now we can’t really help the man but we can certainly give you the perfect machine. Following on from my time in the Professional World tour ranks, I spent a few years on Italy’s highly competitive Granfondo circuit. The Maratona was always the “appointment” of the year and I was fortunate enough to win it twice.

Having spent months meticulously preparing for the event each year, it was a very straight forward task understanding what this bike needed to be. Made from High modulus Mitsubishi carbon fibre, the frame is super light weight and stiff in all the right places. This makes for a very responsive frame but also comfortable over poor road surfaces and long days in the saddle. This bike goes up hill very very fast, but as the saying goes “what goes up must come down”, and the Maratona certainly knows how to do this too. Perfectly balanced geometry and weight distribution give you full confidence on even the fastest, gnarliest descents. I could give you some tips on how to best prepare for and survive the Dolomites but I like to hold on to my trade secrets However I will offer you a top equipment tip. If you are looking for the perfect machine to take on the Maratona Look no further…. The Queen of all sportives has now found its King. The Planet X Maratona.
