It’s a well-known fact that up to 90% of pedalling effort goes into overcoming drag, for this reason the Boardman Elite Air 9.9 Mens Road Bike has been created using world-class aerodynamic engineering to ensure that the rider, frameset and components all work in harmony to achieve a greater efficiency than ever before. 

Through the extensive use of cutting edge Computational Fluid Dynamics and Wind Tunnel testing, the Air has been honed to offer a performance advantage across a wider degree of yaw angles than other manufacturers. 

Designing some of the fastest bikes in the world isn’t all about aerodynamics though. Careful consideration was taken during the design phase to ensure that in our pursuit of aero, we didn’t destroy the handling, stiffness or comfort as it needs to be as enjoyable to ride as it is fast. 

As a leading pioneer in the aerodynamic road bike sector we have meticulously refined this design over 5 years of research and testing. Olympic Gold and World titles are testament to this on-going development process and as such the AIR frameset is one of the most complete packages available on the market today.   

The Air 9.9 is equipped with SRAM Red eTap wireless gear componentry; which helps create a clean and cable-free look that we absolutely love. When it comes to wheels it is equipped with top-end Zip Firecrest 404 carbon clincher wheels that are wrapped in Vittoria Open Corsa tyres. 

Elsewhere on the bike you can find Zipp Service Course handlebars and stem, a carbon fibre Boardman Elite seatpost with Prologo Zero 2 saddle.  It’s easy to see why this bike is a firm favourite in our office!
