80 ULTRA

 

NOTE: Bike comes in Black or white and not the colour shown above.

The Planet X RT-80 is packed with the latest design features and build technology and is specifically tuned to soak up road buzz, whilst efficiently transforming every watt of your pedal strokes into instant speed.

Balancing your desire for performance with day-long riding comfort, the RT80 offers refined geometry and advanced design features to offer a more compliant ride - perfect for long days in the saddle.

The RT-80 frameset marries a precisely tracking, full carbon fork with our newest lightweight frame, both meticulously crafted from Toray's finest T800 carbon fibre. Our Tri-Tube rear triangle seamlessly blends oversized chainstays with thin and flat seat stays and a narrow 27.2mm seat tube to provide comfort enhancing vertical compliance. Internally routed cabling reduces aerodynamic drag and provides an uninterrupted visual flow. The RT-80 frame is the perfect mix of comfort and efficiency, making the most of every one of your pedal strokes.

Constructed from high quality Toray T800 modulus carbon fibre makes the RT-80 perfect bike for sports riding such as sportives, as well as general recreational riding. A precisely tracking front end is combined with a vertically compliant rear triangle to provide pedalling efficiency and comfort in equal measure.

Created with our 'EPS Inside' moulding technology, each main tube frame junction in the RT-80 is laid up over pre-shaped EPS formers. This allows for a more accurate placement of carbon in the mould, eliminating material wrinkles, creating lighter frames with enhanced structural integrity and allowing absolute consistency from frame to frame.

Groupset: Shimano's Ultegra 6800 is a 22-speed groupset well known for hitting a real sweet-spot in the price Vs performance stakes, offing 95% of the performance of Dura-Ace at a price that makes it more obtainable. Ergonomics, drivetrain durability and gear shift fluidity are second to none with Ultegra 6800. A truly refined and all-time best groupset.

We've paired an 11-28 cassette with Shimano's new compact 50-34 teeth chainset so you'll have plenty in reserve for the steepest climbs. Shimano's 6800 brakeset takes charge of pulling you up to a halt and provides huge amount of brake modulation for effortless stopping power. Shimano Ultegra will provide you with years of high performance so you can get on with enjoying your cycling.

Wheelset: Shimano RS clinchers. With a modest rim cross-section and lightweight spokes, the Shimano RS wheels spin up to speed quickly and cut through the air with ease to help you make the most of every watt.

Finishing kit: is provided by Selcof and Prologo our two favourite accessory brands and we've paired Selcof's lightweight alloy stem, handlebar and seatpost and topped them off with the excellent Prologo Zero saddle.

The RT-80 Ultra is the ideal bike for any serious cyclist looking to step up to the latest technology, geometry and design features. The RT-80 blends nimble handling with reassuring stability. It's a bike that flatters riders and shows you how good a rider you really are. Welcome to the future of cycling, NOW! The RT-80 is a bike buying decision you will never regret.
