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 RT-80 combines refined geometry and advanced design features to offer a smooth, more compliant ride - perfect for those 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: we love SRAM's Rival 11 (22-speed) groupset and so do our customers. Rival 11 has quickly become the most popular groupset we offer due to its striking combination of precise shifting, practical ergonomics and low weight. SRAM's innovative Double Tap shifting provides instantaneous gear shifts from the lightest touch at the controls. Rival's dual pivot brake callipers can be relied upon to slow you down in a hurry whenever you haul on the brakes, whether you're racing or putting the miles in during a long weekend rides. Not forgetting the wide-range 32 teeth cassette option to help you spin up the steepest climbs; with quality like this, its easy to see why SRAM Rival is so well regarded.
Wheelset: Planet X CT45 carbon clinchers. Fast, light and durable in equal measure, these beauties have wide 23mm rim profile for better aero and shorter tyre contact patch - perfect for fast road riding all year round. CNC-machined aluminium sidewalls means normal brake pads can be used. And at just 825g front and 976g rear, these carbon lightweights roll super-smooth and give that all important free extra speed at higher speeds!
Finishing kit: weve capped this bike build off with high quality finishing kit from Italian aces Selcof, plus a San Marco and Planet X. With a combined package of this quality, you're getting a truly excellent bike and amazing value for money.
