AIR 9.8 Ltd 2021

£1,500.00
  • Boardman AIR 9.8 Ltd Aero Bike in Black and Silver
Overview

Delivering outstanding aerodynamic performance, the AIR 9.8 Ltd Frameset uses our high modulus C10 Carbon to deliver a rapidly efficient ride without compromising on comfort. With Olympic gold medal-winning DNA, refined through extensive aerodynamic R&D, high-speed riding is definitely the AIR 9.8 Ltd’s forte. A stunning 9.8 paint scheme in matte and gloss black with brushed titanium decals gives the bike the looks to match the speed too.

Shimano’s precise and efficient 105 gearing gives smooth shifting, with a 105 front brake and a hidden TRP brake caliper below the bottom bracket offering plenty of stopping power and minimising drag. The Fizik Antares saddle is a favourite for many pros, and features here giving long ride comfort on despite the AIR’s high-speed, point and shoot nature.

The Air Elite Carbon seat post has 4 different mounting positions, allowing the effective seat tube angle to be adjusted between 73 and 75°, making the bike suitable for mixed Road, Time Trial and Triathlon duties.

Key Highlights

  • i C10 Carbon Frame

    Boardman's C10 Carbon uses ultra high modulus fibres in key areas of the frame, boosting stiffness whilst reducing overall frame weight

    Boardman's C10 Carbon uses a mixture of Toray T1000 and T800 or equivalent fibres. These high modulus fibres have outstanding stiffness to weight ratios, meaning that we can use less material to produce the same level of stiffness compared to lower grade fibres. This in turn means we can shape tubes more dramatically to tune the performance of the frame to suit the type of riding it is designed for. In the AIR range, the use of C10 Carbon facilitates a highly aerodynamic down tube and seat tube, comfort enhancing seat stays, and incredibly stiff chain stays for outstanding power transfer.

  • i Hidden Rear Brake

    The rear brake is located below the BB to maximise clean airflow at the rear of the frame

    We've placed the rear brake underneath the bottom bracket to keep it out of the air flow and improve aerodynamic performance. Don't worry about brake rub or lack of power though, the direct mount TRP brake used on the AIR has a longer travel than a standard caliper, giving better clearance for wide rims.

  • i PF30 Bottom Bracket

    PF30 gives a wider bottom bracket shell allowing us to profile chain stays for excellent aerodynamics and keep the bottom bracket stiff to provide outstanding power transfer

    The PF30 bottom bracket comprises of bearings in a plastic housing pressed directly into the frame. This means that the bottom bracket shell can be wider compared to a threaded bottom bracket as the bearings sit inside the frame, not outside. We've taken full advantage of this additional width to provide a solid and stiff junction between the BB and the chain stays to ensure your power is going into the road as efficiently as possible.

  • i 4 Position Seatpost

    The saddle clamp can be moved between 4 different positions on the seat post, allowing you to adjust the effective seat tube angle from 73°-75° for road, TT or Triathlon use

    Bike fitting is a complicated science, trying to find the best balance between comfort, power output and aerodynamics. With the 4 position seat post on the AIR platform, you have a huge range of adjustment to get the perfect fit. Being able to adjust from a 73°-75° seat tube angle also means the bikes can be used for mutliple disciplines, ride on the road at the weekend, then slide your saddle forwards and fit some aero-bars for a mid-week time trial.
