Boardman Air 9.8 Red eTap Mens Road Bike - 2019


Can be purchased using Cycle to work

The Boardman AIR series has a pretty impressive palmares with multiple Olympic medals under its belt. That made it an exciting challenge to develop for the 2019 range – how do you improve one of the world’s best?

Boardman stuck to the same formula which has proved so successful, but have refined the AIR frameset to make it faster and more real-world rider friendly. With a brand new truncated aerofoil down tube and seat tube, developed as part of an extensive Aero R&D process, the 2019 AIR offers an even faster ride – whichever way the wind is blowing. The 2019 AIR frame, combined with the new T10 aero fork which takes a standard external brake, delivers premium performance with everyday usability.

Aerodynamic performance isn’t much use if the frame doesn’t transfer power to the road efficiently too, but with an oversized PF30 bottom bracket shell and new, tapered box-section chainstays, the AIR frameset makes sure every possible watt makes it to the rear wheel.

The ultimate aero road bike in the Boardman range – the Boardman Air 9.8 Red eTap Mens Road Bike combines their cutting edge AIR frame and forks with SRAM’s wireless RED eTap groupset and Zipp’s 404 Firecrest clincher wheels.

The Olympic Gold medal winning DNA of the AIR frame has been improved for 2018 with truncated aerofoil tube profiles and a brand new aero-optimised fork with an external caliper brake. SRAM’s RED eTap groupset delivers precise and consistent shifting without a wire in sight, further improving the aerodynamic performance of the bike. With 58mm deep Zipp 404 wheels too, the AIR 9.8 is the complete aero package.
