Aero goes uphill, too.

The Boardman Elite SLR 9.8 Frameset is something you may not expect from the aero bike maker –a frame built for climbing. The SLR (stands for Super Light Racing, natch) borrows a great many of the aerodynamic technologies you’ll find on the AiR series, and others in the Boardman lineup, but forgoes some of the more extreme ones (like integrated, hidden brake calipers) in favor of versatility and weight savings.

You’ll still find smooth, airfoil-shaped tubes, and super-clean internal routing, along with a PF30BB to link all the oversized tubes together, but the end result is a bike that looks decidedly more like a traditional road bike.

  • High-modulus, unidirectional carbon fiber construction
  • PF30 bottom bracket shell
  • Internal cable routing is electronic shifting-compatible

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This bike is phenomenal ! One of my favorite bike so far. Light and agile ,very good for climbing. It runs like a cat on flats without much hole in your pocket. I will definitely recommend this to everyone !

High performance, high value!

Value is an interesting word. To me, it means getting a lot of something for the money. With the SLR, especially in this Feature Bike spec, I don't think there is a better value anywhere.

The SLR is a very light and stiff bike. A race bike through and through. The frameset goes to toe to toe with any thing costing twice as much. It lacks the refined feel of the $5k+ Italian framesets but it 98% there.

The road feel in super smooth. Getting out of the saddle and hammering is an awesome experience.

I'm in love with the Boardman brand, so much so I bought the aero model for myself. If I didn't have triathlon aspirations, the SLR would have been my bike.

Hit me up directly with any questions.

High performance, high value!

Is this electronic only ? Or you canuse mechanical gruppo on this ?

Responded on

Yes you can run mechanical or electronic. The customer below has a fantastic picture of their build with mechanical. What are you interested in running on the bike? I've seen some fantastic build with Campy. Do you have any other questions?

Surprising omission or design flaw?!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

For a brand that wants to be premium the omission / availability of a braze-on front derailleur holder makes an otherwise great frame a no-buy recommendation. Boardman claims to be under UCI required weight but you then have to add a clamp-on derailleur holder?! Unacceptable in this age of carbon bikes. You could expect this on a '70's steel bike.
After racing this bike all summer, I have to say it is awesome despite the lacking braze-on. Very stiff frame, excellent for crits, great climbing and descending characteristics. Would buy this again in a heartbeat.

Surprising omission or design flaw?!
Responded on

The specs do point out that the frame has a braze-on front derailleur mount.

Responded on

My point precisely and the reason I bought the frame only to be surprised when the frame arrived without a braze-on derailleur mount!

Responded on

Picture clearly shows no braze on tab. You can even see the seat tube "indent" where the clamp is supposed to go. That said, they should really get the specs right. This site and too many others are notoriously sloppy and often have contradictory specs in the text vs. photos, etc.

Responded on

Hey guys. I apologize for the confusion. We've got a fix in the works to make sure the copy, specs and actual product jive.

With that being said, the SLR is an incredible bike. Braze on or clamp, this frames rips. It climbs like a goat, descends like Ted Ligety and steamrolls anything on the flats.

Hit me up directly if you have any questions about the bike.


Responded on

I'm going to be running this with an braze on derailleur. What size clamp on adapter do I need, 31.8 or 34.9?

Responded on

Thanks IBB! Do you know what the torque spec is by any chance?
