Aerodynamic Racing

Whether you're racing for the win in the World Triathlon Championships or one of the world's greatest road races, it's all about exploiting minimal gains and the AiR/9.8 has enough of them to make the difference between the win and 2nd place. The AiR frame speaks for itself and is finished with a world-class component package. Boardman Bikes sponsored Alistair Brownlee, Olympic Champion 2012 and Jonathan Brownlee, Olympic Bronze medallist 2012 both ride the AiR/9.8.

 

Highlights;

- New AiR Aerodynamic Racing frame, fork and seatpost

- Full high modulus carbon fibre monocoque construction

- Wind tunnel developed tube profiles for real world conditions

- Down tube, seat tube and seatpost shaped for maximized airflow and reduced wind resistance in real world head and cross wind conditions

- Forks and seat stays have flat inside and curved outside surfaces for enhanced airflow interaction between the frame and wheel. This is further enhanced when using deep section wheels

- Full internal cable routing with cables entering behind the headtube for further airflow enhancement and clean lines
- Rear brake positioned underneath chainstay
- Mould design incorporates one piece PF30 bottom bracket and optimized oversize box section chainstays with steep taper at dropout for maximized power transfer and strength

- 4 position seat post to ensure that riding position can be dialled from 73º-75º for either Road, TT or Triathlon disciplines
- Internal front brake for enhanced airflow

- Stable, predictable geometry to cope with all race situations

- Full carbon fork with tapered fork steerer for increased stiffness and steering precision

- Mechanical and Di2 compatible cable routing

Boardman Bikes AiR/9.8 Review:


Previous range reviews:

 

BEST ON TEST

97%

"...is up there with the best bikes we've ever tested." "It's certainly racy but with our tester putting in a 100-mile ride and feeling fresh and ache-free at the end, it's suitable for long days in the saddle as well as short blasts." "No corners have been cut and it's a bike you rapidly fall in love with."

Source: 220 Triathlon. Issue 277

 

WINNER

5/5 Stars, Exceptional. A genuine class leader.

"Ultra-efficient, lightweight, comfortable aerodynamic speed chassis loaded with the best possible equipment at an astonishing price."

"buy iF… You want a near perfect maximum efficiency speed and distance machine at a competitive price."
