If you see someone out climbing with old kit then the chances are that some of it is Podsacs kit. The reason for that is that Podsacs have always made stuff that lasts. Not only does it last, it performs too, so why throw it away? With Podsacs equipment you buy something new when you want to, not because you have to. We have become a watchword for peformance and durability.
Podsacs is now back at its original home in Sheffield as part of the online cycling retailer Planet X. Planet X are the fastest growing UK bike company, with a strong retail heritage of over twenty five years. Employing over 100 staff in our South Yorkshire headquarters we design, manufacture and assemble high performance road and mountain bikes and componentry, retailing to a global market. We are now in a fantastic position to combine the Podsacs superior reputation for peformance, functionality and durability, with the no nonsense philosophy and pricing associated with Planet X.
Podsacs joins Planet X's existing brands, On-One, Titus, Holdsworth, Sab, Tomac and Viner.
Podsacs was born in 1983 out of the passion of Pete O’Donovan (POD) to design and make the best and most durable packs for the most discerning climbers and mountaineers. As a Sheffield, UK, based climber Pete was immersed in one of the most intense and hardcore climbing communities on the planet, and strove to build the finest packs for his demanding peer group. They quickly became the first choice for those ‘in the know’ and their reputation has endured within the climbing community to this day.
Building on 30 years of experience Podsacs have combined cutting edge design and technology with bespoke fabric engineering to create this new range, meeting the needs of today’s Alpinists and climbers.
So, whether you plan to enjoy a day out in The Pass, or are planning a trip to the greater ranges, Podsacs won’t let you down.
Planet X bikes are up to half the price of our high street equivalents, because we work smarter. We have no high street rents to pay and as we buy direct we don't pay for distributor and brand mark-ups. We will bring this same no nonsense pricing approach to the Podsacs range. Planet X has grown by word of mouth and personal recommendation which means we don't have big marketing budgets and sponsorship campaigns to pay for. This is how we do business - we are in control of the whole process from the drawing board to assembly and customer service guaranteed with an easy returns and warranty policy. When you buy from us, you're dealing directly with us, which means that we can take care of you right the way through the process.
Planet X is the UK's second biggest assembler of bikes. All our bikes are designed by us in-house, developed by our team riders, manufactured by carefully selected factories and built to order right here in Sheffield. We're proud of our bikes and we take a great deal of care over every step in the process. You can buy our products exclusively through this website, over the phone or from our destination stores in Sheffield and Barnsley.
