  • Boardman SLR 8.8 Road Bike

    Like the SLR8.6 the Boardman SLR 8.8 Road Bike has a frame that draws deeply on the all new SLR carbon frame and therefore benefits from that new design. The full carbon fork that appears heer will make for a smoother ride than the SLR8.6 and this bike also benefits from the Shimano Sora gears that has 2 more options and a bit less weight. A comfortable bike for a quick blast or for longer days in the saddle.

    • Frame: New aluminium alloy SLR frame
    • Forks: Full carbon forks for better comfort and weight saving
    • Gears: 18 speed Sora gearing offers a wide range of precise shifting
    • Brakes: Tektro R315 brakes for full control.
    • Wheels: Boardman tubeless ready wheels and Vittoria Zaffiro's keep you rolling fast

  • Boardman SLR 8.8 Road Bike is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good bike let down by poor ancillaries I’ve had two of these bikes and it’s a shame as they could be so much better. Both bikes kept getting loose spokes during long rides. This is due to Boardmans own cheap wheel. Apparently they used to use Mavik wheels in the past but changed this to reduce cost. Also, the bottom bracket started to creak under pressure on the first bike and then had issues with the left shifter on the replacement bike. These faults both occurred with in the first couple of weeks of each bike. Boardman also installed only a few parts of the Sora groupset. Astheticly, a full set including brakes would have been good. Overall. Good frame, not so good attachments
