The latest in our series of blog posts featuring some of the best new bikes at Bike Science for 2012.
Next up, it’s what we believe the be the best all round bike out there. The Boardman Elite AiR Road. No matter what your chosen discipline, the AiR Road can do it all.
What is it?
The Boardman Elite AiR Road is a true all rounder. Light, aero, fast – and in typical Boardman style, great value too. If you need one bike that’ll see you through any sportive, triathlon or time trial this is the choice for you.
What does it cost?
COMPLETE BIKES start from just £1999. Or build a custom machine by starting with the 9.8 AiR FRAME, FORK AND SEATPOST for £1399 HERE
Who’s it for?
The Boardman Elite AiR Road is the bike chosen by Alistair and Jonny Brownlee in their quest for world triathlon domination. The frame takes aerodynamic tube profiles developed for the Air TT Time Trial machine and brings them to a true aero road bike. You won’t see faux “aero” tubes shapes here – this is REAL aerodynamics, developed using the latest CFD techniques and extensively tested in the wind tunnel. This frame is comparable to the best road frames in the world when it comes to handling and response to pedal input, but with the sleek aerodynamics of the best TT frames. If you’re looking for a bike that can be used across all disciplines, this is it. Road racing, sportives, time trials, triathlon – this bike can do it all.
Where can I try one?
The Boardman Elite AiR Road is currently available to view and test at Bike Science Bristol, Bike Science Darlington and Bike Science Tunbridge Wells
