The new Planet X Codeine 27.5 has not just been a case of shrinking everything down by a couple of inches We assessed every aspect of the Codeine design to extract the maximum benefit from the new 27.5 wheel size. Its lighter, faster, stiffer and better-looking than previous generations. Weve also increased suspension travel to make it more of an animal - now its a true Enduro monster!
27.5 inch wheels carry less rotating mass than 29ers. This means they turn faster, giving more nimble handling. The Codeine 27.5 is quicker through technical single-track, with a light feel at the bar. The back end is more compact and supremely flickable; a shorter rear triangle tucks the rear wheel up beneath the rider. With more weight over the tyre contact patch theres more traction to power you up the trail, whilst the rear suspension soaks up the lumps without a hint of pedal-induced bob. But its with the nose of the new Codeine pointed downwards that youll notice the biggest change.
Suspension: weve partnered with Italian suspension gurus, Marzocchi, for their rear shock. The 053 S3C2R air shock gives 150mm of rear travel. This piggyback shock has external high and low-speed compression adjustability, as well as rebound control. Its a 3-position shock with externally adjustable gate control to let you dial in the hand-off point between the different platform settings. Upfront the Pike 160mm RCT3 needs no introduction, it sets the standard in Enduro forks and perfectly compliments the Codeine 27.5 frame, giving you one bike to rule them all!
SRAMs GX1 components deliver the amazing drivetrain efficiency and reliability. With one chainring up front and a wide range cassette on the back, you get the same gear ratios as a 2x set-up, but with reduced weight, better chain control and far better drivetrain reliability (including fewer dropped chains). We love SRAMs 1x drivetrains, we ride them every day and race them every weekend. Its time to get onboard and experience the improvement for yourself!
Wheelset: Codeine 27.5" El Guapo Pro are a touch of handbuilt luxury. This 27.5" wheelset pairs our sensational El Guapo Pro hubs with WTB's sturdy and lightweight KOM rim. It's the best 650b wheelset we've ever made and its hand-assembled here in the Steel City of Sheffield.
The new Codeine 27.5 is ready help you realise your potential on your local trails. Its a true all-mountain monster that can tackle anything, from steep drags up winding fire roads, to bombing your local Northshore features. One bike to rule them all - youre going to ride this until it hurts, and then ride some more.
