Boardman Bikes Elite AiR 9.8 Road Bike Frameset - 2015 $0.00
The Boardman Elite AiR 9.8 Frameset is aerodynamic design incarnate. Chris Boardman started with wheels and a rider, then set about optimizing everything that goes between those. The Elite AiR 9.8 is the result. Any gram of drag that could be reduced was, and anything that was causing drag was removed, smoothed, or tucked away (like the brake calipers). Unlike some aero-minded designers, though, Boardman know that wind happens at all angles, and designed the frame accordingly.
The frame makes use of a PF30 bottom bracket shell, which allowed the frame designers a bit more real estate to mate the large downtube to the rest of the bike. All cables route internally, again to hide them from the wind, and the fork is designed to literally slice through oncoming air as you ride. All this carbon fiber won’t weigh you down, though –the 9.8 weighs in at just under 1150g.

Looks and speed!
Hands down, best bang for the buck.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've been demo'ing the lower spec'd version of this bike for the past few weeks. All I can really say is wow, this bike fights well above its weight class.
The AiR is very light, especially for an aero bike. But its ride qualities is where it really shines. Stiff where it needs to be and oh so aero, the AiR is fast, smooth and very good looking.
This is my next personal bike for sure. I race crits primarily but do a stage race or 2 and have ventured into triathlon recently as well. This bike will be a perfect part time TT'er and its stiff front end and well tracking rear will make this a perfect crit racer.
Riding longer distances? The aero savings on this rig will pay huge dividends. Check out the video below...
I can't wait to get mine built up!! Hit me up directly with any questions. email@example.com
Is the Boardman seatpost included in the frameset? The picture shows it but the package builder doesn't include it.
Yes, the seat post for this bike is frame specific and is included in the purchase.
Do you think this frame would fit a Stages...
Do you think this frame would fit a Stages Power Meter?
Do you already have this frame and are wondering if a stages crank will fit? Or are you thinking about getting this frame and building it up with a stages crank? Feel free to email at firstname.lastname@example.org as I have a stages power meter too. I love it!
