2016 Boardman Team Carbon - An Authoritative Ride At A Great Price

The 2016 Boardman Team Carbon is an Impressive Race-Bred Machine 

Of course, the bike works great as a commuter too, with mudguard eyes in front and rear, and easily accessible external cabling.

Mavic wheels and Continental tires help the bike grip the road, and geometry can be altered via spacers in the headset for a choice between head-down race feel, or a more upright leisurely ride.

"Weighing in at just 8kg (17.6lb), the Team Carbon is extremely light for the money, and that’s evident from the first pedal stroke. Put your foot on the gas and the Boardman has a turn of speed that belongs to a bike costing way, way more. You’ll be stunned at just how much of a helping hand it gives you."

It has an unidirectional carbon monocoque frame with a matching fork that comes with a carbon steerer to cut the grammage, while the chunky crown leads down to confidence-inspiring, triangular-section blades.

With a deep teardrop down tube, a big old wedge of a bottom bracket shell and oversized box-section chainstays, this is a bike that’s designed to provide race-grade stiffness.

"Where Boardman’s skill and experience of designing and tuning affordable carbon frames really comes in though is the fact it’s stiff and responsive without being uncomfortably rigid. It’s not dead and damped like many discount carbon frames are either and there’s a real sense of vitality between the obviously Fizik-influenced saddle and chubby Continental tires."
