The versatile Boardman HYB 8.8 Mens Hybrid Bike Hybrid Bike gives you the same great style as the Boardman HYB 8.6 but comes in nearly 1 kilogram lighter and and has even better components. The main change is the Shimano 1 x10 gears which deliver on the "less is more" principle.

Simply put you have less gears (but still the same huge range due to the 42 tooth cassette), less weight, less to go wrong or maintain, and happily less chance of choosing the wrong gear. This is not dumbing down the ride - on the contrary it's being clever and is a facet that keen mountain bikers started using years ago. Additionally you get better brakes and a better fork so that control and comfort are even better! What more reason do you need to explore new possibilities?

If you fancy a few upgrades, why not trade up to the HYB8.9 for SRAM Apex 1x11 gears, smooth rolling Scwalbe Marathon Racer tyres, Selle Royal gel saddle and SRAM Level brakes.

  • Frame: 6061 aluminium frame keeps the overall weight low
  • Forks: Full carbon fork saves weight and reduces vibration for a smoother ride
  • Gears: Shimano Deore 1x10 is simple, reliable and easy to use
  • Brakes: Shimano hydraulic brakes for powerful and controlled stopping
  • Wheels: Fantastic Schwalbe Citizen tyres help roll faster for longer
