About PLANET3

What is planet3?

PLANET3 is an easily installed and reversible way to derestrict your e-bike. It uses a purely mechanical design utilizing a patent pending planetary gear set which makes it undetectable to the bike's electronic gizmos and gives you full control over the choice of speed at which you want to ride your bike.

No more pushing through pudding after hitting the speed limit, virtually no maintanace and no worries. Just you and your e-bike - the way it was meant to be!

Compatibility

PLANET3 is currently compatible (fully tested, working & shipping to customers) with the following models assuming they’re on the stock wheelset/hub that they came with:

Hub compatibility for now includes the following:

If you have upgraded your stock wheelset to ANYTHING else (Industry9, Newmen, Chris King, Superstar Components, Nukeproof etc etc.) please contact us first! (and only if this seems to be a popular hub option that many people might find themselves on and you’re willing to do some measuring with Vernier calipers)

Brake rotor compatibility notes – We’ve tried to make PLANET3 compatible with as many 6-bolt rotors as possible. This includes any stamped 1-piece rotor on the market (Shimano RT66, SRAM Centerline, many others) and Shimano RT76 & RT86 2-piece rotors. However, here are some exceptions and combinations which we know CAN’T FIT (due to room constraints on the frame):

General compatibility rules. These are the questions to ask yourself if you'd like to know if PLANET3 can be made compatible with your e-bike:

So, CenterLock hubs = big NO NO. Otherwise, measure if the sensor cable can reach the hub, is the hub 6-bolt, is there room on the frame for a saucer of ~7 mm thickness and ~60 mm diameter. In this case, almost any bike can have a PLANET3 on it.

Early bird orders

As you are reading this the full web shop is being built but since the products are ready and people are interested and we like to give the people what they want – anyone who would like to get their hands on a PLANET3 device can do so by sending an e-mail to info@planet3.bike with the following information:

Pricing is as follows:

If you're on a hub that's compatible but needs a different end cap (such as Hope Pro4, NOVATEC, e*thirteen E-SPEC) the price goes up another 10 EUR for the end cap (already included in the YT, Focus & Giant pricing).

Payments can currently be made via PayPal to paypal.me/planet3bike or via bank transfer to localized banking details in GBP, EUR, USD, AUD, NZD & PLN courtesy of TransferWise, saving us both ~5% in unnecessary PayPal fees.

Transit time to EU is roughly 5 days (UK is 5-7 days, Germany a bit less) and rest of the world can be 8-12 days. Please allow 1 day of handling time for me to produce these parts since they’re all in pieces and are assembled for each order.
