Towards the end of 2004, Alan Ingarfield, Sarah Mooney and Chris Boardman MBE came together – and with their shared ambition, energy and vision created Boardman Bikes – a performance based British bicycle brand. From the onset, the company was galvanised by building a team of specialists in all key areas ranging from design engineers, frame builders and investment through to specialist cycling business acumen, design and marketing.
“From my perspective, it is essential that all Boardman bikes set great riding performance standards and do exactly what is expected of them – this is a fundamental part of our collective vision and long-term ambitions for the brand.”
Here at Bspoke Cycles Peebles, we carry the Elite range of cboardman cycles.
The AiR Series
When you’re racing for the win in the World Triathlon Championships or one of the world’s greatest road races, it’s all about exploiting minimal gains and the AiR Series has enough of them to make the difference between the win and 2nd place. The AiR frame speaks for itself and is finished with a world-class component package.
The SLR Series
Bikes capable of racing over the highest mountain passes in the world. The SLR series with Zipp wheels sets and SRAM groupsets is seriously light, and as some of the lightest production bikes in the world the SLR 9.8 comes in under the UCI weight limit without compromise to specification or performance.
The SLS Series
True race bike technology capable of winning the biggest toughest races in the world combined with the core elements essential in a world class endurance bike. The SLS/9.8 is a sub UCI weight limit masterclass in endurance race bike design.
The CXR Series
The ultimate CX bikes with the latest technology including Shimano Ultegra Di2 11 speed gearing and integrated hydraulic disc brakes all assembled onto the Boardman full carbon CXR chassis. Race, training, on-road or off-road, this is arguably the best cyclo-cross range in the world.
The AiR TT Series
The name on the down tube says it all, designed by the fastest ever Tour de France Prologue winner and the holder of the Performance Hour record, for today’s generation of World-class Triathletes and Road Riders. The new AiR/TT bikes are the fastest bikes in the Boardman range, engineered by the fastest ever rider.
The MTB Series
The MTB bikes are the culmination of years of frame development – centred around XC World Cup athlete testing and cutting edge computer simulation combined with the worlds very best components to ensure that our World Class athletes have the best possible race bike.
