Unusually for such a modestly priced bike this features frame tubes with aerodynamic profiles – Boardman Bikes has invested heavily in its own Performance Centre complete with its own wind tunnel – and a full-carbon fork with mudguard mounts.
The up-to-date dropped seatstays, with their pronounced keyhole profile, should add rear-end comfort and their rack mounts factor in a little more versatility too.The componentry is pretty much what you’d expect for the money, with Shimano’s 8-speed Claris levers, derailleurs and cassette accompanied by an FSA Tempo compact chainset and the same company’s deep-drop R315 levers. This is very similar to the kit found on comparably priced road bikes from Trek, Giant and Genesis, for example.
The Claris setup works well, though I’d have still preferred a lower gear than that offered by the 28t sprocket.
The 34×32 bottom gear is certainly lower than would have been standard a few years ago and will get you up most climbs you’re likely to come across, but on steeper hills into double digit gradients you will find yourself out of the saddle and working hard. Shimano does offer an 8-speed 11-30 and 11-32 cassette which would ease climbs.
