Planet X XLS SRAM Apex 1 Mechanical Disc Cyclocross Bike Planet X XLS SRAM Apex 1 Mechanical Disc Cyclocross Bike

Cyclocross is growing fast. Drawn by the fun of the mud and the thrill of the racing, cyclists are taking to the 'cross course in droves. CX is a balance of speed and skill and the Planet X XLS is an eternal favourite of the scene, thanks to its contemporary and refined carbon chassis and race-tuned geometry. Whether youre looking to upgrade to carbon or discs, the XLS is the perfect place to start.

The XLS represents the evolution of technology within cyclocross, namely, the introduction of disc brakes. If you're a road rider that's never experienced disc stopping power, you'll be thrilled with their performance. No longer must you compromise on speed - on discs you can brake later into corners and shred mud like never before, as the discs stay clean. This performance increase is even more outstanding when coupled with the XLS' lightweight carbon frame and fork. We've cleverly flattened profile top-tube for comfy shouldering over the roughest off-road terrain, too. Theres big tyre clearance, too, to avoid mud clogging. With features like these, we've made sure the XLS is future-proof.

The XLS frame is beefed-up around the main frame joints for extra strength so it can easily handle the rough stuff. In fact, the XLS wants to be ridden hard, to show off how efficiently it transfers every watt of pedal-power into speed. Go on, drop the hammer, search for the limit, gap the field.

Of course, with a bike this tough, theres the added advantage of using it for multiple types of riding. Wash off the race mud and enjoy its versatility as a commuter or road bike. Put some slick-tyres in there for the weekend club run. The XLS is quickly gaining popularity for good reason!

Groupset: SRAM Rival 1 HRD, 11 speed groupset features hydraulic disc brakes and a single 1x front chainring set-up offering new performance advancements. SRAM Rival 1 provides the tools and technology to meet any challenge, all with a single X-SYNC chainring, matched to their full dedicated 1x drivetrain. SRAMs 1x systems bring in a new era of riding, providing a simpler, lighter and more durable solution. And thanks to a wide-ratio cassette, you still get the same gear spread as a standard double front ring set-up. 1x groupsets are ideal for adventure cycling due to lower weight, low maintenance, longer profile chainring teeth to prevent chain drop, as well as highly efficient power transfer through the drivetrain. Rival 1 shifting is crisp and accurate and is amazing value for money, especially in comparison to its competitors in the field.

Wheelset: Gipiemme Roccia Disk. Gippeme are well known for their alloy and carbon fibre race wheels, now they've put their all into creating a practical, value for money 29"/ 700c disc brake wheelset. Built for road and off-road use the Gippemme Roccia is supremely versatile, it's equally at home on our cyclocross bikes as it would any of our Gravel Adventure bikes. Disc brake ready and built to last the Roccia is the perfect do it all 700c wheelset.

Finishing Kit: weve capped this bike build off with high quality finishing kit from Italian aces Selcof and our own Planet X pro range. With a combined package of this quality, you're getting a truly excellent bike and amazing value for money.

Please note: black frame colour finish consists of clear gloss lacquer over raw carbon, so you can see the beauty of the carbon weave!
