HYB 8.9 2021

£1,000.00
  • Boardman HYB 8.9 Hybrid Bike in Blue
Overview

Fast, fun and versatile is what the HYB range of leisure and fitness hybrids is all about. Frames take inspiration from our SLR road range, but with an extra bit of stability baked in. Puncture-protected 35mm tyres balance low rolling resistance with a plush ride and offer enough grip for light off-roading too. Our new one-piece integrated handlebar and stem adds a clean aesthetic to the look and feel, while the ergonomic grips help to reduce numbness and long ride discomfort.

The HYB 8.9 is our highest specification hybrid in the range, using the same triple-butted 6061 X7 Aluminium frame and C7 Carbon fork as the 8.8, but offering upgraded gearing, brakes, saddle and tyres.

If high speeds both up and downhill are your priority, the HYB 8.9 is the bike to pick. That isn’t to say comfort and practicality have been sacrificed though. Shimano’s Deore 12 speed mountain bike gears utilise a colossal range 10-51 tooth cassette, adapted for hybrid use with a 44 tooth FSA Gossamer 1X chainset. This combination offers ratios for both spinning up steep hills, and a big top gear for high speed cruising and descending, without significant gaps in between. These ratios give the same range as a 50/34t road compact chainset with an 11-32 cassette but without the complexity of a front derailleur. Simply shift the rear mech up and down to make things easier or harder.

Shimano also takes care of braking, with their MT400 hydraulic disc brakes. These offer phenomenal stopping power and control in all conditions. 35mm Schwalbe Marathon Racer tyres provide low rolling resistance with high puncture protection and grip, perfect for rough roads or dry towpaths and bridleways.

At the front of the bike is our 1-piece HYB integrated handlebar and stem, offering a gentle backsweep and rise to put your wrists in a neutral position, with adjustable ergonomic grips to keep hands happy too. Adding further comfort is a Selle Royal Lookin Gel saddle, with reinforced side panels to protect against scuffs and scrapes.
