Building on the geometry and handling of our Nanolight model, the N2a is designed to be an aerodynamically efficient road frame that also has agile and consistent handling so that it can cope with the dynamic loads required by riders wanting a machine that handles.
Road.CC tested our first sample of this frame and said "It's an exciting bike. I like a bike that responds quick, steers fast and accurately, and can hang out with the fast boys in a sprint. I like to get the maximum speed for my effort. If you're similar, this bike is worth a good look."
Like our Exocet 2 time trial frame, the N2a was designed in collaboration with renowned Italian bike designer Roberto Billato, a frame-builder and carbon fibre specialist with over 30 years' experience. Roberto's unrivalled knowledge of carbon fibre design and construction means you can depend on the N2a to offer you amazing performance.
Another key member of our design team is Mark Lovatt, six times winner of Tour of The Peak, Mark's hard won northern riding experience is another part of what sets Planet X apart from other manufacturers. Mark also oversees all bike specs and builds in our warehouse.

All frame size recommendations are approximate. A good fit will also depend on the correct choice of stem length, correct bike set-up for the rider and riding style.
Correct frame size choice can vary greatly with riders' torso length. If you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for a slightly shorter stem. If you think you are borderline between sizes, and you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for the smaller frame size. If you have shorter legs and a longer torso, go for the larger frame size to get the extra top tube length.
As the frame sizes increase, so does the length of the head tube. If you are inflexible or perhaps have a history of back problems, consider going for a larger frame size. This will increase the relative height of the handlebars making the position less “extreme”. The larger frame will also have a longer top tube, so you’ll need to compensate for this with a shorter stem.
