This is combined with a geometry which encourages long days exploring without sitting up tall in the wind. The SLR 9.6 is visually stunning, with the looks to keep up with its rapid performance.
The SLR 9.6 uses Shimano’s flawless R8150 series Ultegra Di2 groupset. Perfect shifts with it's wireless shifting, even under load combine with powerful and easily controlled braking to give a truly premium ride experience.

More About The New Boardman SLR 9.6 Disc Road Bike


In most situations, aerodynamic drag limits a rider’s speed rather than fighting gravity. The SLR frameset is optimised for aerodynamic performance without adding weight or compromising the ride quality. Our wind-tunnel proven tube profiles minimise separation of airflow, resulting in lower aerodynamic drag.

The SLR’s geometry strikes a balance between a long and low race position and an upright, endurance set up. The frame itself has been designed with comfort in mind to. Thin, dropped seat stays and a slim legged fork absorb road imperfections without compromising on the lateral stiffness required to corner quickly and confidently.

The SLR focusses on efficiency. Using our C10 carbon fibre blend, high-modulus fibres are used in key areas to increase the strength to weight ratio. Deep, box-section chainstays, an oversized bottom bracket and dropped seat stays combine in a compact, stiff rear triangle, maximising power transfer.

With 28mm tyres and hidden mudguard mounts, the SLR 9 Series bikes are also practical for year-round riding too.

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!
