  • Boardman SLR 8.9a Mens Road Bike

    Prefer Shimano 105 to Tiagra? Prefer durable Aluminium to Carbon? Then Boardman SLR 8.9a Mens Road Bike is for you. The new 2018 SLR aluminium frame has the same geometry and similar tube profiles to its Carbon cousin and so is stiff, responsive and comfortable. A full carbon fork and weight saving, 22 speed, Shimano 105 gearset means that this bike weighs in at a measly 9.2kilos. Mavic CXP Elite rims with fast rolling Vittoria's Rubino tyres will help transfer this weight advantage into road speed and make those days in the saddle even more fun.

    • Frame: New 2018 aluminium SLR frame
    • Forks: Full carbon fork for better comfort and weight saving
    • Gears: 22 speed Shimano 105 offers crisp shifting with a huge range of gears for every climb and every descent.
    • Brakes: Tektro R315 brakes for controlled and powerful stopping
    • Wheels: Mavic CXP Elite rims create a sturdy wheelset without the weight.  Vittoria's Rubino tyres keep you rolling fast.

  • Boardman SLR 8.9a Mens Road Bike is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Returning road biker I bought this bike as my old dawes, age 25 years finally gave up. I used to race when I was younger. However have been away from cycling for many years. After a heart attack I decided to get back into the saddle, knowing that I was never going to get to race standards again. I looked at many bikes before making my decision, and I mean many from all manufacturers. I chose this bike because it was not going to break the bank, also the spec on the bike gives it great value, you get a lot of bike for your money. I chose the Aluminium frame over Carbon version only because I have never ridden carbon, so stayed with what I know. Interestingly the aluminium framed bike has a better gear spec with the Shimano 105 than the carbon version which comes with the Shimano Tiagra and is only a few, .3 grams heavier, which is not a problem for me . Anyway I bought the bike and to be honest I can not fault it. The bike is agile, light and very responsive and forgiving, I do enjoy riding it. The gearing is suitable for the Welsh hills, and to be honest I can not find fault with the bike and would highly recommend it. Its great to be back in the saddle.
