  • Gears: Shimano Tiagra 20-speed gearing with an 11-32T cassette for excellent range

The highest spec aluminium road bike in the Boardman line up, the SLR 8.8 is a versatile and fast bike which will make light work of your daily commute but also keep up with the pack on a weekend group ride.
The new Boardman SLR 8.8 Road Bike uses a triple butted 6061 aluminium frame which has evolved from the first generation SLR 8.8. This redesigned hidden-weld frame can now accommodate 28mm tyres as well as a mudguard or 30mm tyres for more comfort on a summers ride. A redesigned rear triangle offers not only a weight saving over the previous generation SLR 8.8 but also improves comfort and a tapered full-carbon fork offers precise handling and vibration reduction.

Tektro flat-mount disc brakes give powerful stopping power in all conditions whilst upgraded Shimano Tiagra gearing offers more gears with a wider(11-32T) range than the 8.8’s predecessor. 28mm Vittoria Rubino Graphene 2.0 Tyres give fantastic grip whilst retaining great speed and a puncture-resistant belt inside the tyre will ensure plenty of worry-free miles.

More About The New Boardman SLR 8.8 Road Bike

Shimano Tiagra gearing for incredible performance

For the SLR 8.8 gets Shimano’s Tiagra 4700 drivetrain. Previously reserved for the SLR 8.9 Carbon model, this 2x10 set up gives a high-quality shift feel and a wide ratio cassette to help you find the perfect gear for every hill. The 11-32T cassette ensures that whether you’re loaded up for your commute or out beating your best times on a weekend you will have the drivetrain to optimise your performance.
Flat mount disc brakes

For this new generation of Boardman bikes, the SLR 8.8 gets upgraded to mechanical disc brakes. Your safety is looked after by Tektro’s MD-C511 flat mount disc brakes which offer incredible stopping power in all conditions. Set up with 160mm rotors front and rear you will come to a fast, controlled stop whatever the conditions.
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. Bar width and crank length are also reduced for different frame sizes to make sure they are suited to the fit needs of real cyclists, not just based on old traditions. These changes also reduce the rider’s frontal area, which has been wind tunnel tested to reduce drag, meaning less effort required for the same speed!

Boardman SLR 8.8 accessories

Shimano PDR 550 Pedals will give you even more power as cleated pedals enable a much more efficient pedal stroke. To give you confidence to take your new bike anywhere the Kryptonite Evo Mini7 lock and flex cable are lightweight but incredibly secure, the loop cable making sure your front wheel is locked up too. And, to keep you riding all year round SKS Raceblade Pro mudguards will keep you and your bikes clean and mud free
