More About The New Boardman MTX 8.6 Hybrid Bike

Aluminium frame and Suspension fork
The 2021 MTX 8.6 is built on triple-butted aluminium frame which is lightweight yet strong. The frame’s geometry is designed for maximum rider comfort whilst smooth welds keep the bike looking sleek. The Suntour NEX suspension fork gives you the ability to lock the suspension out so you have the performance of a rigid fork over smoother surfaces. Equally, when you want a more comfortable ride or you hit rougher terrain, the 63mm travel soaks up the bumps.
Not only does the suspension make the bike adaptable on a variety of surfaces, the 2021 MTX 8.6 features mounting points which allow you to fit a variety of pannier racks and mudguards, so you can be ready for any weather. Tektro hydraulic disc brakes offer controlled and powerful stopping even if you get caught out in the rain. And, with Altus 18 speed you’re sure to have the right choice of gears whether your popping to the shops, or exploring further off the beaten path.  
The little things that matter
With Chris Boardman as Chairman of the company, Boardman have a wealth of experience to draw on and are always looking at the fine details when developing bikes.

They’ve worked to develop a range of saddles using advanced pressure mapping and real-world testing to make sure any saddle on a Boardman bike is going to suit the majority of people riding it.
