Crucially the brand has been treated to a full de-construct and rebuild to ensure that it meets with the future expectations of the Boardman team, consumer and market.
New Boardman Technologies for 2016
- Aerodynamic Surface Trip - The shape of the tube profile is one of the most critical elements when looking at the aerodynamic performance of the bike. This becomes even more important when 'Yaw' is factored in i.e. when a cross wind is present. In the real world a Yaw of up to +/- 20 degrees is realistic, therefore we test throughout this range and beyond to ensure that the designs are optimised for real-world conditions. With the new AST, this improves the airflow over the frame, which results in a 2% reduction in drag compared to a standard truncated tube profile, a power saving of 6 watts and 23 seconds gained over a one hour ride.
- Materials - C10 Carbon - Boardman C10 carbon is reserved for our Elite level products where the number one concern of the rider is performance, without compromise. X9 Alloy - Boardman's highest grade X9 Alloy is created by carefully blending Aluminium with other key materials, in just the right quantities.
