The 2021 Boardman MTR range of bikes are designed to be the perfect machines for all-round UK trail riding. Our brand new 29er platform with 145mm travel and trail-ready geometry is paired with 140 or 150mm forks and can take on rough and technical trails without being a burden on flatter, flowy sections. Longer reach figures, a slackened 66-degree head angle and custom-tuned, long-stroke RockShox shocks deliver composed handling and supple yet supportive suspension action whilst maintaining agility and pedalling efficiency.
MTR 8.6 uses the same trail-ready geometry as the rest of the range but brings this confidence-inspiring platform down to an affordable price for a quality full-suspension bike.
The SR Suntour XCR34 fork gives 140mm of travel via an adjustable air spring with stiff 34mm stanchions and a 110mm boost spaced thru-axle ensuring the front wheel stays pointing where you need it to. The rear shock is a RockShox Deluxe Select with our custom-tuned set up controlling 145mm of supple yet supportive travel.
Shimano’s Deore M4100 groupset takes all the technology of its 11 and 12-speed cousins and packages it in a durable 10 speed set of gears with a wide range 11-46t cassette. This gives an easy low gear for long or steep climbs while allowing good top-end speed too. Tektro HD-M285 hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors are powerful stoppers with good modulation.
Even at the entry point in our range, we don’t cut corners on components and the high-quality Maxxis Minion DHF and DHRII tubeless-ready tyres fitted deliver outstanding grip in loose and steep conditions. With a conversion kit, you can enjoy the increased grip and reduced puncture risk that tubeless offers.
