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!

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 has been updated February 2020 to partly cover the increase in DHL Express shipping cost and 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 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. If you'd like to pay via Credit card, you can do that also via PayPal without having an account.

There is also the following discount scheme for volume purchasing which also offsets the price bump of DHL Express shipping on multiple units:

So, might as well call up a buddy or two and get a group buy going! 😊

As of February 12th 2020 PLANET3 is shipped worldwide via DHL Express!

Shipping via DHL Express is included in the price for most of the world! However, DHL Express cost for Zone 7 carries an extra fee of 10 EUR. Please see DHL zones PDF and/or DHL zone 7 map to check if you're located in Zone 7 (most notably: Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and South America). Also, regardless of the DHL zone you're in - if you live in a Remote Area (ZIP code list) there is a 5 EUR fee. Furthermore, shipping to physical entities via DHL Express is NOT possible for Russian Federation.

DHL Express ensures next day delivery for most of the EU and the East Coast of the USA, while the transit time for the rest of the world is 2-4 days.

Please allow 1 day of handling time for me to produce/assemble these units since they’re all in pieces and are assembled for each order.

Compatibility

PLANET3 is currently compatible (fully tested, working & shipping to customers via DHL Express) with the following models assuming they’re on the stock wheelset/hub & brake rotor 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 flat 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, measure if the sensor cable can reach the hub and if there is 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!
