Planet X Spitfire Shimano Ultegra R8000 Titanium Road Bike Planet X Spitfire Shimano Ultegra R8000 Titanium Road Bike

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

Designed by master frame builder Mark Reilly, the Spitfire was created first and foremost as a competitive road machine. It offers predictable handling with a moderately aggressive riding position that will be instantly familiar to anyone who's spent time aboard our EC-130E Aero Road bike. The Spitfire's rear triangle features ovalized and tapered frame tubes that provide subtle vertical compliance. Triple butted, ovalized seat and down tubes mate to a 68mm bottom bracket shell to provide a firm, responsive pedaling platform.

With an oversized head tube offering maximum steering precision we've paired the Spitfire frame up with your choice of either our Superlight Selcof Delta SL curved blade, monocoque fork, or our Selcof Strada SL straight blade fork. Designed to offer a touch of shock absorbing compliance these high performance forks are the perfect match to the Spitfire, together they offer striking performance with a welcome touch of comfort and incredible low weight.

Groupset: Shimano's Ultegra groupset has been upgraded and the result is the incredible Ultegra 8000 groupset. Shimano have worked to improved the efficiency of the shifting, improved brake feel and delivers a smoother working, better-looking groupset that's simply worth every penny.

A FSA Gossamer Pro chainset combines with the new Ultegra 8000 11-32t 11-speed cassette to give an excellent gear spread, close enough for fast road work but still including a bailout gear for tackling those ultra steep climbs.

Ultegra 8000 moves to polymer coated gear cables for the slickest possible shifts. revised lever ergonomics have delivered a sweeter gear shift feel and the slightly larger downshift paddle is easier to hit with gloved hands. Inline cable adjusters are a thing of the past with the new levers containing Allen key adjustable cable pre-tensioning.

The biggest change is out back where Shimano has integrated their Shadow Derailleur design from their Dura Ace and off-road groupsets. Shadow geometry places the rear mech further under the cassette, giving slicker shifts, protecting from crash damage and allowing for larger cassettes for enhanced gear ratios. The front mech gets a new cage and pivot design to help it accommodate the wider gear ratios and trend towards wider tyre sizes.

If you've ridden Ultegra before you know how much care and attention Shimano put into it. It's their best selling groupset and offers the best mix of price/performance. This new version is no exception it's simply superb.

Wheelset: Fulcrum Racing 900, 700c clincher wheelset. Fulcrum wheelsets excel at delivering serious value for money and their Racing 900 model is no different. Built with black anodized, stainless steel spokes, CNC machined hubs fitted with precision cartridge bearings, and all laced to shallow profile alloy rims with a machined braking surface this is a quality wheelset. A Shimano/SRAM 11-speed compatible freehub makes this a versatile wheelset for most types of road cycling. Weighing in around 1800g they're right on the money for a do-it-all wheelset. Tough enough to sprint, light enough to climb on and a pleasure to ride all day, the Fulcrum Racing 900 wheelset will be with you mile after mile.

If you're hunting for a new road bike but find that modern carbon bikes leave you cold, spread your wings and give the Spitfire a try.
