More About The New Boardman URB 8.6 Urban Hybrid Bike

Aluminium frame and Tapered Fork
The URB 8.6 is built on a triple-butted aluminium frame with hydroformed tubes allowing some intricate shapes which give the bike a unique and purposeful look. This look is complimented by an elegant application of subtle decals which add a splash of silver to the high quality dark grey paint. The lightweight aluminium fork is tapered which gives additional width where the fork meets the frame, offering increased stability and steering precision.
All year-round practicality
Ensuring that it makes a perfect commuter no matter the weather, the URB 8.6 features mounting points which will allow you to fit a variety of pannier racks and mudguards. When you are loaded up the powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes will make sure you come to a fast and controlled stop come rain or shine. The Shimano Nexus 3 speed hub gear is sealed from the elements meaning you don’t have to worry about constant maintenance and the rust-resistant chain adds to the low fuss nature of this bike.
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. Using data from hundreds of bike fits and insight from bike fit experts, they have made simple changes to the touch points of the 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.

Boardman URB 8.6 accessories
The SKS Longboard 700c 45mm Mudguards are a great choice for staying dry when hitting puddles and their clean lines compliment those of the bike. The Kryptonite Evo Mini Lock and Flex Cable is lightweight and compact and ensure syour new ride is safe when out of sight. Adding the Halfords Dual Action bike pump (with pressure gauge) ensures you can keep your tyres topped up and tailor your pressures to your ride or load.

The above images and description serve as an example. Current disruption in the global supply network mean that specific components may not be available. If that occurs, we may replace those components with similar parts of the same or higher quality, provided that any such substitutions do not negatively affect the overall quality or use of the product.

Please Note: Due to supply chain disruption the Boardman HYB range will ship with conventional separate handlebars and stems going forwards.
