SLR 9.6 Disc Carbon 2021

£3,300.00
Overview

The SLR range are perfect all-round road bikes. They feature a lightweight frame design and carbon lay up which offers a fantastic blend of power transfer and comfort and has been aero-optimised to deliver race winning speed. This is combined with a geometry which encourages long days exploring without sitting up tall in the wind. The SLR 9.6 is visually stunning, with the looks to keep up with its rapid performance.

Frameset:

In most situations, aerodynamic drag limits a rider’s speed rather than fighting gravity. The SLR frameset is optimised for aerodynamic performance without adding weight or compromising the ride quality. Our wind-tunnel proven tube profiles minimise separation of airflow, resulting in lower aerodynamic drag.

The SLR’s geometry strikes a balance between a long and low race position and an upright, endurance set up. The frame itself has been designed with comfort in mind to. Thin, dropped seat stays and a slim legged fork absorb road imperfections without compromising on the lateral stiffness required to corner quickly and confidently.

The SLR focusses on efficiency. Using our C10 carbon fibre blend, high-modulus fibres are used in key areas to increase the strength to weight ratio. Deep, box-section chainstays, an oversized bottom bracket and dropped seat stays combine in a compact, stiff rear triangle, maximising power transfer.

With 28mm tyres and hidden mudguard mounts, the SLR 9 Series bikes are also practical for year-round riding too.

Specifications

The SLR 9.6 uses Shimano’s flawless R8000 series Ultegra Di2 groupset. Perfect shifts even under load combine with powerful and easily controlled braking to give a truly premium ride experience. A 50/34t compact chainset combined with a 11-30t cassette offers a broad range of gears to cover off steep climbing, flat land sprinting and fast descending. The junction box is hidden in the end of the handlebars for a clean, uncluttered cockpit.

Wheels and tyres make a huge difference to how a bike feels to ride, and the 9.6 sees a significant aerodynamic upgrade from the 9.2. Alexrims ALX845D wheelset feature a 45mm deep carbon fibre rim with a blunt, U-shaped profile, delivering low drag and excellent crosswind stability. Tyres are Vittoria’s pro-level Corsa Graphene 2.0 in 28mm width with outstandingly low rolling resistance and excellent cornering grip.

CONTACT POINTS:

Working with Chris Boardman, data from hundreds of bike fits and insight from bike fit experts, we have made simple changes to the contact points of the SLR range. Using advanced pressure mapping and real-world testing we’ve shown that the Boardman SLR saddle will provide long-ride comfort for the majority of people. Bar width and crank length are also reduced vs previous bikes to make sure they are suited to the fit needs of real cyclists, not just based on old traditions. These changes also reduce the rider’s frontal area, which has been wind tunnel tested to reduce drag, meaning less effort required for the same speed.
