More About The New Boardman URB 8.9 Urban Hybrid Bik

Aluminium frame and Tapered Carbon Fork
The 2021 URB 8.9 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 and offers increased stability and steering precision.
All year-round practicality
The 2021 URB 8.9 is fitted with a Shimano Nexus 8-speed hub gear. The hub is sealed which means unlike a traditional derailleur system you won’t have to keep cleaning and lubricating to keep it in shape. Sudden stops won’t be an issue as the hub gear allows you to change gear when stationary and instead of using a chain to transmit power from the pedals, the URB 8.9 is fitted with a Gates CDN carbon belt drive. Designed to be strong, smooth and clean, the CDN belt is produced specifically for urban commutes.
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.

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.
