Like the SLR8.6 the Boardman SLR 8.8 Sora Mens Road Bike has a frame that draws deeply on the all new SLR alloy frame and therefore benefits from the new design. The full carbon fork  will make for a smoother ride than the SLR8.6 and this bike also benefits from the Shimano Sora gears that has 2 more options and a bit less weight. A comfortable bike for a quick blast or for longer days in the saddle

  • Frame: New aluminium alloy SLR frame
  • Forks: Full carbon forks for better comfort and weight saving
  • Gears: 18 speed Sora gearing offers a wide range of precise shifting
  • Brakes: Tektro R315 brakes for full control.
  • Wheels: Boardman tubeless ready wheels and Vittoria Zaffiro's keep you rolling fast

Or if you fancy even more improvements, trade up to the SLR8.9c for Carbon frame, Tiagra gears and Vittoria Rubino tyres.
