The Boardman ADV 8.8 Sora Mens Road Bike is a bike truly made to help you explore new possibilities.  Taking the fast rolling features of a road bike the ADV bikes have a more forgiving geometry that allows a more upright riding position. With a lower bottom bracket for better stability and wide Schwalbe G-One tyres this bike is adept at riding in comfort on roads but really excels when you want to get off the beaten track.

Shimano Sora gears are offered with a sub compact chainset (48/32) that gives you a great range of gears and plenty of scope, even if carrying extra gear, to get up any hill you come across. Pannier and mudguard ready this bike is also a brilliant commuting option as the slightly more upright position will help you keep an eye on the traffic.

A carbon fork keeps the weight down and naturally all this comes on a brilliant Boardman aluminium frame that is designed with adventure in mind

If you fancy a few upgrades, trade up to the ADV8.9 for Tiagra gears, Shimano hydraulic brakes and flared bars for even more control.

  • Frame: New aluminium alloy ADV 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 controlled and powerful stopping
  • Wheels: Light boardman wheels paired with Schwalbe G-One to keep you rolling fast
