The road bike you should reach for when ultimate speed is the number one priority. With wind tunnel optimised frame profiles and integrated brakes, the AIR platform cuts through the wind with relentless efficiency, getting you to the finish line as fast as possible.
It’s a well known fact that up to 90% of pedaling effort goes into overcoming drag, for this reason the Boardman AIR has been created using world-class aerodynamic engineering to ensure that the rider, frameset and components all work in harmony to achieve a greater efficiency than ever before.
Through the extensive use of cutting edge Computational Fluid Dynamics and Wind Tunnel testing, the AIR frameset has been honed to offer a performance advantage across a wider degree of yaw angles than other manufacturers. This means that the AIR will out perform the competition in the real world, no matter where or when you ride.
Designing some of the fastest bikes in the world isn’t all about aerodynamics though. Careful consideration was taken during the design phase to ensure that in our pursuit of aero, we didn’t destroy the handling, stiffness or comfort as it needs to be as enjoyable to ride as it is fast. Taking inspiration from our SLR Race we have utilised the same one-piece BB and chain-stay design to allow maximum power transfer through the chainset, combined with a tapered steerer up-front for responsive yet reassuring control.
As a leading pioneer in the aerodynamic road bike sector we have meticulously refined this design over 5 years of research and testing. Olympic Gold and World titles are testament to this ongoing development process and as such the AIR frameset is one of the most complete packages available on the market today.
