Whilst carbon fibre is the material of choice for pro-level racing, modern aluminium frames can offer great ride quality and efficiency at a more less professional level price. The Boardman SLR 8.9 Alloy Road Bike design is inspired by its carbon siblings but tuned to suit the characteristics of building a frame from Aluminium. Using triple butted 6061 aluminium alloy we’ve been able to create a frame that delivers on speed, comfort, weight and practicality. We’ve chosen a tapered full carbon fork for outstanding steering precision and comfort.
Using our award-winning endurance geometry, we’ve produced a bike which is responsive and comfortable, and with mounts for mudguards and clearance for 28mm tyres, the SLR 8.9a can be tuned to almost any type of road riding.
2 x 11 speed Shimano 105 gears with a compact chainset means that the bike is ready for hilly adventures, and with a top quality, Fizik Antares saddle fitted you’ll enjoy long days on the bike in comfort.
