Boardman has a history of creating World and Olympic title winning race bikes. The four SLR platforms have taken all of this experience and tailored the finite design details and ride characteristics to match the specific demands of the rider.

The road race specific SLR Race is the lightest frameset we’ve ever produced, tipping the scales at a meagre 798g, without compromise to its stiffness or strength. The SLR Race is for those who believe less is definitely more.

The SLR Endurance platform is the perfect companion, whether you’re climbing and descending the highest mountain passes or riding hard over the rolling roads of the low lands. It offers pure race bike weight, stiffness and handling combined with the extra stability and comfort required in a bike designed to be ridden all day, every day.

The SLR Endurance Disc handles and rides as sublimely as our award winning SLR Endurance platform but with increased braking performance and reduced torsional flex under load thanks to its disc brakes and thru axles.

The all new SLR Titanium combines modern technologies and manufacturing craft to create a contemporary, hand-made and hand painted titanium frame that offers unparalleled tensile strength, compliance and resistance to both fatigue and corrosion. What more could you ask for in an endurance road bike.

Boardman has a history of making winning race bikes and the Endurance series is no different. The SLR Endurance platform has been designed from the ground up utilising our race winning manufacturing experience, combined with the design intricacies required for a true class leading endurance bike.

The SLR Endurance platform is the perfect companion, whether you are climbing and descending the highest mountain passes or riding hard over the rolling roads of the low lands. It offers pure race bike weight, stiffness and handling combined with the extra stability and comfort required in a bike designed to be ridden all day, every day on the terrain of the most challenging road events and races.

Constructed from Boardman’s highest grade C10 carbon fibre and weighing only 850 grams*, the attention to detail that has gone into the frame is second to none. Tube shapes and profiles designed using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) allow the R&D team to build in the right properties whilst also ensuring that weight is carefully managed using the right amount of material in the right place. The seat stays have been carefully sculptured to give an element of vertical compliance whilst retaining torsional stiffness and the chain stays are box sectioned for efficient power transfer. The versatile geometry has been refined to enable effective fit, handling and stability for racers and endurance riders alike.

The award winning SLR Endurance 9.2 is now further enhanced with Shimano’s top of the range Dura-Ace gearing, superlight and stiff FSA SLK carbon chainset and Boardman’s own SLR Elite Five wheelset. With it’s Pro level specification and C10 carbon frame, the SLR 9.2 is one of the lightest bikes in the Boardman Elite range, which when combined with the stiffness of the frame gives the endurance rider a significant advantage when the road starts to climb.

The decision to create a disc equipped road bike was not taken lightly or because other manufacturers were doing the same. As with everything our R&D team do they look at a project in its purest form – does it work, does it offer improvement, reduce weight and so on. With this mindset we went about deciding whether disc brakes offered any real world benefit and if so how would we go about getting the most out of this new component addition for the road. Starting with the data gained from both our MTB and CXR range development we analysed the mechanical advantages found in the platforms and then began applying this understanding to road usage.

Finite Element Analysis on areas of load and stress, in particular brake mounts and the adjoining tubes, showed us that with minimal structural alterations there were advantages to running a larger rotor than other manufactures have chosen to adopt, with a negligible weight increase. The advantages of better modulation and cooling on long descents, coupled with bolt-thru axles on both the front and rear offer huge improvements to the brakes working efficiency and ultimately the bikes handling.

The result of this research is a frame that handles and rides much like our award winning Endurance platform but with increased braking performance and reduced flex under load.

This means that regardless of the time of year, weather or terrain you have everything needed to keep you out there.

The 9.8 SLR Endurance Disc, with 38mm Carbon Clinchers and Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 offers un-rivaled spec on a top-level frame platform. Front and rear thru-axles increase the stiffness offered by the outstanding Endurance frameset, to ensure that you are always in full control and that power is transferred from legs to road as efficiently as possible.

If you want to get out there and ride, just to see where the road will take you, then there is no better partner than the Boardman SLR Endurance Disc 9.8.

Our restless curiosity in the pursuit of perfection constantly engages us and forces us to question every detail. This principle drove us to ask whether carbon was the right material to use when designing our SLR Endurance Disc series, as it turned out it was – but in going through that research stage it became clear that titanium offered many properties that would make for an excellent endurance bike and from there the new SLR Titanium range began.

From that point onwards our goal was simple – to combine modern technologies and manufacturing craft to create a contemporary, hand made, hand painted titanium frame that can eat up the miles 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Many of the features developed for the SLR Endurance Disc range have found their way onto our Ti platform and in some cases have even greater measured benefit when combined with our 3AL 2.5V Titanium. The PF30 bottom bracket and bolt thru axels have dramatically reduced power loss through the chainstays as well as sharpening the handling.

The all new SLR Titanium offers incredibly high tensile strength, unparalleled compliance and resistance to both fatigue and corrosion. What more could you ask for in an Endurance road bike?

A revolutionary Titanium concept with sublime handling for those long rides. The 9.2 frameset has been paired seamlessly with Shimano’s Ultegra groupset and confidence inspiring hydraulic disc brakes to keep you in control when descending the most technical mountain pass in any weather. Thru-Axle frame design and Boardman SLR Elite Five wheels help to keep stiffness in-check to produce a beautifully blended bike which draws out the best from this traditional material, paired with the latest technological advancements in the road market.

A thing of beauty, the Boardman Ti 9.4 brings all things great together in a concise package. With all of the usual features found from the Boardman Ti frameset, the 9.4 offers up the same SLR carbon fork with tapered steerer, PF30 for increased torsional stiffness and thru-axles front and rear.

The 9.4 Ti features Boardman’s deep section SLR Elite Seven carbon clincher wheelset and electronic Shimano Ultegra Di2 shifting – a killer combination wherever you choose to roam. Let your legs spin and the road move beneath you.

Creating National Title and Olympic winning road bikes is in our blood and something we have been doing since 2007. Since then we’ve worked with countless athletes to refine and tune our race pedigree platform.

More aggressive than our SLR Endurance series and more focused than our AIR range, the SLR Race is the lightest frameset we’ve ever produced, tipping the scales at a meagre 798g without compromise to its stiffness or strength. Through the use of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) we have ensured that the frame is constructed using only the required materials in the required places, maximising the performance of the frame and yet at the same time reducing weight.

The attention to detail in the frames tube profiles along with the inclusion of its molded one piece PF30 bottom bracket and oversized box section chainstays means that your power is never wasted, whether maintaining the group tempo or attacking off the front.

The SLR Race series is for those who believe less is definitely more.

Take one SLR frame and fork, add a Sram Red 22 groupset and a pair of our own SLR Elite Nine carbon clincher wheels and what do you end up with? A bike that’s under the UCI weight limit as a starting point. The SLR Race 9.8 is an out of the box race machine that is capable of catapulting you over the world’s highest mountain passes whether you have a number on or not.
