Planet X team riders love the super light; it’s been instrumental in numerous victories, seen off countless opponents and survived many a brutal winter. Our sponsored riders have tested the Superlight to near-destruction. The current incarnation was born out of hours of athlete’s feedback. At one point it even had carbon rear-stays… But we feel this version is true to the spirit of what we set out to do with Planet X: Design bikes that are exhilarating to ride, super-durable and great value for money. The Superlight embodies all of these things.
Our team riders have excelled astride the Superlight, collecting an impressive amount of silverware over the years. Planet X pro road rider Mark Lovatt rode a Superlight in numerous Elite events (see images) including: The Lincoln Grand Prix, Tour of The Peaks... In Mark's words, "It's stiff, fast and cheap, a bit like me..."
The Planet X Superlight Team Aluminium will build up into the perfect winter training bike. The frame is light, stiff and responsive, and guaranteed to deal with the worst of the winter weather. Partner this with some Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels and you’ve got the makings of a very light, fast training bike that will excite and inspire you for years to come.
Note: Frame and forks are available separately.
