Mondo

Altho' under the 'Sarto' heading, this is Planet X's Mondo, hand-made by Sarto in Italy. Occupying the zenith of PX's stellar line-up, this Italian stallion really demonstrates the benefit of a master craftsman selecting and bonding different carbon tube thickness's & profiles rather than a monocoque mould to maximise and fully exploit the properties of carbon for bike building. With a beefy BB, it's rigid laterally but allows vertical compliance, which basically means that it's stiff without being uncomfortable. The Dedacci sourced forks inspire confidence on fast mountain descents and when the geography heads upwards, you'll appreciate it's thoro'bred, pared down features. The XL model paired with PX's CC50 wheel came in under 7kg.The frame allows for the use of the current crop of wider rimmed wheels and, for the Haute Route Pyrenees, the bike was used with PX's CT45s (pictured), a little heavier but providing better feel on some of the sketchier descents with user-friendly clinchers. Bellisimo!Updated for Haute Route '14 - Mondo frame is now paired with climber-friendly Dura Ace C24s, SRAM Red group except for FSA SL-K Light compact, Fizikl Tri Carbon saddle, 3T Ergosum Carbon bars & stem, Bungarus cables, Look Keo Carbon pedals - all weighing in at 6.7kg (inc spares pack)
