boardman bikes review

Each is built around an aluminium alloy frame and is equipped with disc brakes. The bike gets a 2x9 speed drivetrain in the form of Shimano Sora, Tektro mechanical disc brakes and the same Schwalbe G-One All Round 38mm tyres on the same wheelset. There is a Suntour Raidon XC LO-R air fork, Shimano Deore 1x10 speed drivetrain.

This doesn’t affect the amount you pay. The top two models, the HYB 8.8 and 8.9, have a single chainring set up for simpler shifting, while the HYB 8.6 has a double ring chainset. 'But a high-quality aluminium frame can filter out the worst of the road buzz and deliver a sharp, communicative ride.'. 'Boardman is known for affordable carbon bikes,' says Boardman Bikes’s Product Manager Matt Dowler. The SLR 9.6 is Boardman’s carbon frame race bike that delivers as a perfect all-round bike with its aero-optimised and lightweight frame design, paired with dependable, high-performing components. The top-level air is the 9.8 (above) at £6,000. But the lower end HYB 8.6 is paired with alloy fork blades, while the HYB 8.8 and HYB 8.9 have full carbon tapered forks. The cockpit gets a Boardman own brand 780mm wide bars and a 45mm stem, plus there's a Satori Sorata Pro dropper post (a relatively new budget dropper) with 125mm travel on the medium and 150mm on the large and XL bikes with a Fizik Taiga saddle on top. Road.cc buyer's guides are maintained and updated by John Stevenson. The cockpit is full of Boardman own brand parts and there are Boardman wheels too which are tubless read and fitted with Vittoria Barzo TLR 2.0, 2.25" tyres. Next up, a cross country bike with tele forks, great fun, but heavy.

It comes with tubeless-ready wheels and tyres and, like all 9 Series bikes, it has a saddle from Fizik. The SLR 8.9 Carbon comes with a Shimano Tiagra 10-speed groupset aside from Tektro R315 long arm brakes which have been specced to allow the use of mudguards (you get the relevant eyelets) and 28mm tyres.

Across the range the ADV bikes get a slacker headangle too, from 71 to 71.5 ° (size dependant) and there's more bottom bracket drop compared with last year's bikes which the brand says will inspire more confines as it will increase stability off-road. The former is more aggressive and designed for those planning on pinning a number on, while the latter offers an adventure geometry, signifying that is more relaxed and more upright. Boardman has focused on everyday practicality with the design of the URB range.

This time around it has a Shimano 1 x 10 drivetrain and the …

If you can stretch to £650, the MTX 8.8 comes with a better fork and a Shimano Deore 2 x 10-speed groupset.

Tubeless-ready 38mm Schwalbe G-One All Round TLE tubeless ready tyres and Boardman SLR wheels finishes off this bike that won’t break the bank. Many of us might shy away from aluminium as a frame material, perhaps opting for carbon because… well, because carbon. The most affordable bike in the 2021 Boardman range, again with an alloy frame and 120mm fork. Now pushing 50, he's riding road and gravel bikes most days for fun and fitness rather than training for competitions.

But there’s one issue I’d take with the entire build, if we’re looking for perfection rather than cost-effectiveness. Read our review of the Boardman ADV 8.8. The dropper post is still listed in the spec but not shown in the photos on Boardman's website. Cast your minds back a decade or so and the choice of aluminium road bikes was limited. Boardman uses the same mould for all the SLR Disc bikes, but the 9 series bikes get the most expensive carbon layup. While the men’s and women’s SLR 8.6 get a more refined frame - and a lower price of £500 down from £600 - the main change comes on the SLR 8.8, which moves to mechanical disc brakes while retaining the same £750 price tag as the 2020 model. It looks & goes great! There's  a Shimano SLX 12 speed drivetrain with 32T chainring giving large gear range, plus there are Shimano SLX 4-piston brakes.

With Boardman himself believing that tyres are one of the most important components on a bike, the ADV 8.6 sticks with the tubeless-ready 38mm Schwalbe G-One ALLround TLE tubeless ready tyres and Boardman SLR wheels.
