  • Boardman SLR 8.6 Road Bike

    The Boardman SLR 8.6 Road Bike is Boardman’s brilliant new entry level road bike. The all new lightweight 7005 alloy frame shares its DNA with the top of the range Series 9 bikes and as such you get aero inspired tubes and endurance geometry that will enhance your ride experience. Full carbon forks are also weight saving with the added advantage of reducing vibrations from the road surface making this a brilliant option for riders keen to get into cycling and slowly increase the miles they ride. The 16 speed Shimano gear system  is reliable, low maintenance and gives you a comprehensive range of gears for tackling all terrains. Combining a great frame with reliable components the Boardman SLR 8.6 Road Bike give fantastic value for money.

    • Frame: New 2018 aluminium alloy SLR frame
    • Forks: Full carbon fork for better comfort and weight saving
    • Gears: 16 speed smooth and reliable Shimano Claris gearing
    • Brakes: Tektro R315 brakes for controlled stopping

  • Boardman SLR 8.6 Road Bike is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Runner This was my first proper road bike and it didn't disappoint! Handle's really great and very speedy + Light Halfords was very helpful, knew the bike inside out and what upgrades would be worth it. Kyle is the man you'd want if you're ever near London, he's fab! Only thing I'd switch is the seat and the pedals really, stock ones are lacking for longer rides.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great but... Bought this bike a few days ago before realising there are no toe clips included. According to halford this is due to health and safety, yet they still felt fit to sell me it with out mentioning it. I cannot see any safe notices online so I’m left wondering is the store talking trash

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice bike but budget for a wheel upgrade! A nice looking bike, rides really nicely and slightly above average value for money for bikes in this price range. The only low point for me so far is that I had a puncture and the standard tyre proved impossible to reseat on the standard rim whilst at the roadside using a standard cycle pump. The tech at Halfords couldn't sort it either without using a track pump at silly pressure. There appears to be a wheel and/or tyre irregularity on my bike that'll require a wheel upgrade to fix and all Halfords offered was a £10 gift card towards an upgraded pump! This problem may only be on my bike but if you get a similar problem then just spend another £160 on a pair of Campagnolo Khamsin wheels and you'll be sorted! So, I'd recommend this bike, but budget for a wheel upgrade. I can only give a 2 star rating for performance as this bike certainly didn't perform well when attempting to fix a puncture (and we all get those).
