Boardman Bikes SLS 9.8

 

Boardman Bikes SLS/9.8 reviews:


"Given its 850g frame and fork, the SLS will certainly appease the weight weenies. It is probablyone of te lightest sportive road frames currently in the market. It is just 60grams heavier than its race-oriented SLR sibling. Even with stock Maivc alloy Ksyrium wheels, the SLS9.8 is already very light. Imagine how much lighter it can go with a pair of carbon hoops. With the SLS, sportive riders can have their cake and eat it: comfort and performance with no compromise on overall weight,"
