Planet X Typhoon Titanium Cross Bike Shimano Ultegra 6800 Planet X Typhoon Titanium Cross Bike Shimano Ultegra 6800

Titanium has a justly deserved reputation as a wonder material. No other metal matches it for strength-to-weight ratio and no carbon frame can beat it for durability and ride feel. It blends the low weight and efficiency of carbon with the handling feel of the best steel bikes. Titanium bikes always stand out from the crowd with looks and longevity that are peerless at any price; with a cast metal head badge and subtle brushed 'Invasion Stripe' detailing the Typhoon is no exception. Everyone should have at least one titanium bike in their collection.

Created for Planet X by master frame builder Mark Reilly the Typhoon was conceived as a no-holds-barred cyclocross race machine. Triple butted main tubes contribute to the Typhoon's lightweight feel while carefully ovalized and tapered rear triangle tubes provide subtle vertical compliance that helps to smooth out the roughest laps. Ovalized seat and down tubes mate to a 68mm bottom bracket shell to provide a firm, responsive pedaling platform. A moderately compact geometry with sloping top-tube provides plenty of clearance for quick dismounting. A moderate head angle provides agile, confidence-inspiring handling and a riding position that maximises power transfer. The Typhoon is as efficient as it is elegant.

Groupset: Shimano's 6800 Ultegra (22-speed) groupset hits a real sweet spot in the price Vs performance stakes. It offers 95% of the performance of Dura-Ace, but at a lower price that makes it obtainable for more competitive riders. Ergonomics, drivetrain durability, and gear shift fluidity are first class with Ultegra 6800. Faultless gear shifts across the wide ratio cassette, even under the heavy load, comes with the lightest touch of the controls. Shimano are masters of precision gear shifting, taken to a whole new level with Ultegra 6800.

  • Avid BB5 mechanical disk brakes come as standard on the Typhoon and these easily adjustable disc brakes are exceptional examples of the art. They provide fingertip control and impressive stopping power. We love them for their all-weather braking ability and the extra confidence this gives us on every ride.

    Wheelset: Vision team 30 Disc are exceptionally solid wheels, perfect for competitive Cross Country, Cyclocross or general road riding. Based on our best selling 700c road wheel they come with an 11 speed capable rear hub so you have maximum options in what rear cassette you chose to run. The freehub is built with a steel body to handle the stresses of hardcore riding. With 4 oversized bearings in each rear hub, 2 in the hub shell and 2 supporting the freehub, it's unlikely that you'll need to take a look inside them any time soon. These amazing parts combine together create an outstanding wheelset, ready to battle any terrain!

    With powerful disc brakes, space for grippy 38mm tyres and plenty of UK mud the Typhoon is all set to eclipse the success of the Pickenflick. If you find that modern carbon bikes leave you cold, spread your wings and give the Typhoon a try.
