<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Boardman Bikes has just released its 2021 range, including updates to its SLR endurance bike and the release of its new ADV gravel bike. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Boardman Bikes has been notably quiet recently. That’s because it has been gearing up for the launch of its 2021 range. Plus, it hasn’t had a lot of bikes to sell, since the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/features/covid-19-cycling/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Covid-19 outbreak</a> sent bike sales through the roof.</span></p>

</section><p><span style="font-weight: 400">Now it’s started to roll out the new 2021 bikes, and the undoubted headline grabber is the limited-edition SLR 8.9 – an all-carbon Shimano 105 equipped machine for just £1,000. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">With only 500 available across men’s and women’s models, Boardman expects it to sell out fast.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Chrisr Boardman himself is still very much involved in the launch of the new bikes, assisting in development and signing off the design of all new models. “I’ve kept that connection because I still love it, and even after more than a decade, I get excited about seeing each new model being born,” he says.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">You can pre-register your interest in the new bikes immediately, as they are live on </span><a href="https://www.boardmanbikes.com/gb_en/bikes/8-series/boardman-road/" rel="noopener nofollow"><span style="font-weight: 400">Boardman’s</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400"> and </span><a href="https://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/all-bikes/" rel="noopener nofollow"><span style="font-weight: 400">Halfords’</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400"> sites, although availability will trickle out for different models over the summer.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Boardman says that there will be further new 2021 models, including mountain bikes and hybrids, as well as further road bikes announced later in the summer.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The new 2021 alloy SLR 8.8 Disc, as its name suggests, swaps out the previous iteration’s rim brakes for Tektro MD-C511 mechanical disc brakes. There’s a Shimano Tiagra 10-speed groupset and the bike rolls on 28mm Vittoria Rubino tyres.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Boardman says that it has redesigned the frameset, which is triple-butted aluminium alloy with hidden welds. There are mounting points for mudguards and a rack. It’s paired with the C7 carbon fork seen on pricier SLR models. </span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Boardman’s entry-level to its SLR range is the SLR 8.6. It’s priced at £500, a £100 drop from its predecessor. It features a new hidden weld frameset, with aero tube profiles and a rear triangle redesigned to add extra compliance. There is women’s and men’s sizing available.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Like the SLR 8.8, there’s a full carbon fork and mudguard and rack mounts, although that model’s disc brakes are replaced by rim brakes. Eight-speed shifting is provided by Shimano Claris, while the Boardman SLR wheelset is tubeless-ready.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Also new for 2021 are upgraded models in the ADV adventure/gravel bike range, which Boardman says up the bike’s mixed terrain handling. That includes a swap to thru-axles from quick releases on the ADV 8.9 for improved handling and more precise disc rotor alignment. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The frame’s geometry is also more stable than the road range, with a longer wheelbase, slacker head tube angle and 70mm of bottom bracket drop, paired with shorter stem length.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">For £1,000, the ADV 8.9 gets a Shimano GRX 10-speed double chainring drivetrain, with a super-compact 48/32 FSA Omega chainset paired with an 11-36 cassette for plenty of off-road climbing range. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Stopping power is provided by Shimano GRX hydraulic disc brakes, while the Boardman ADV tubeless-ready wheels come with 38mm Schwalbe G-One Allround TLE tubeless-ready tyres.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The ADV 8.6 spec is a new entry-level gravel bike for Boardman, which it says drops the price by £100 from its previous ADV 8.8 starter gravel bike. It’s available in women’s and men’s sizes.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The frameset shares the geometry and many of the features of the higher-spec ADV 8.9, but with quick-release wheels replacing thru-axles. Shifting is 9-speed Shimano Sora with a 48/32 FSA Velo Pro super-compact chainset, while brakes are Tektro MD-C511 mechanical discs.</span></p>
