New bike ordered 21st March busy day googling

Posted: March 21, 2012 in Planet X, Wheels

The Planet x write up on the bike & Radar’s views HERE & HERE

This is a killer deal. SRAM Red is way up there with Shimano’s Dura Ace in quality and performance. It’s the choice of six ProTour programs, the Pro-Continental Cervelo Test Team and the last 11 Tour de France champions including Armstrong, Pereiro, Sastre, and Contador. The top 3 from 2010’s Tour de France all used SRAM Red – that’s some race pedigree!

So if you’re looking for a pro equippped race level bike you’ve come to the right place

The New Pro Carbon

Our most loved race-machine the Super Light Carbon has become the weapon of choice for those in the know. Light enough to bag the climbers jersey, rapid enough to get the green and comfortable enough to finish a full week race fast.

The new version of our legendary full carbon road bike will be available in new colours and decals for 2011: in black, white and now Ferrari red and it really does look the business (more photos to follow as the frames come in).

Bike Radar referred to it as: “”An absolutely cracking race bike” 4.5/5

With SRAM Red transmission

The Red groupset offers the highest pro level performance shifting available from SRAM.

Complete bike weight is claimed 7.5 kg (16.5 lbs) with lighter wheels, saddle bag (tube, pump) and light it weighs 8.1kg 

light enough but not the lightest about but good value for money
