The Pro Carbon with SRAM Rival 11-speed groupset is an amazing combination of smart design, performance and outstanding value for money. Our most versatile road bike, perfect for new, returning and experienced cyclists.
There's more to the new Pro Carbon than just legendary performance, incredible value for money, stylish good looks and lustrous new paint jobs. The Pro Carbon has been perfected over years of continuous refinement that's why it's the obvious choice for new, returning and experienced cyclists.
We're big fans of SRAM here at Planet X. SRAM groupsets are considerably lighter than those from their main competitors. Double Tap shifting is quick, crisp and assertive right across the cassette, even under load. We ride our bikes in some pretty awful conditions through the year and SRAM kit always performs reliably through the worst of it. SRAM also offers fantastic value for money, so you get the very best performance, whatever your budget.
Bike Radar said about the pro Carbon: "The Planet X screams value for money from the rooftops with a megaphone." And: "When it comes to value for money, the bar is very high for what you can buy for 1,000, but if anything, the Planet X has raised it a notch or two."
SRAM are the accepted masters of 11-speed (22 gears) groupsets that combine smart design, performance and outstanding value for money. We've fitted this build with SRAM's WiFLi 32T cassette to give you the perfect gear ratios for tackling any climb. WiFLi was pioneered by SRAM to help its pro cyclists up alpine passes and hill-top finishes in the Grand Tours. It's available to us mortals as well now, which means that the Pro Carbon gets a compact chainset and a cassette that goes all the way up to 32T! That's a huge range of gears that go down to a very small ratio so you can spin up steep climbs just like Chris Froome.
The frame itself needs no introduction. By far our most popular road frame, with a lightweight and comfortable carbon-fibre construction that has seen it chosen time and time again for racing, sportives and Sunday morning club runs. The geometry sits nicely between aggression and endurance, with a riding position that you can comfortably maintain for hours, while still having the aerodynamics and snappy handling to put the power down for the sprint to the next road sign.
We capped this build off with high-quality Selcof finishing kit, a San Marco saddle and Fulcrum Racing Sport clincher wheels. With a frame of this quality and groupset and finishing kit that majors on smart design and lightweight performance you're getting a superb bike for your money, one that you'll enjoy on club runs and sportives for years to come.
