Liv Avail 1 Road Bike, 2021

No reviews

Review

The Boardman SLR 8.9 is a beautiful bike, a reinvention of the Team Carbon – previously ridden to Olympic glory in 2008. Maintaining its original character the frame has had an overhaul in design and material. 

The frame is built with aerodynamics in mind and a lightweight feel to it, while not compromising on performance, it also has tyre clearance up to 28mm. 

Pros

  • Good value for money

  • Comfortable

  • Women’s specific

  • Reliable rim brakes

Cons

  • Heavy 
  • Lower end groupset
  • Not particularly nimble due to its endurance geometry

Verdict

A cracking bike to help someone fall in love with cycling, but not one for those looking to venture into racing or Grand Fondo’s. The equipment is at the lower end of the range and the bike is heavy, which won’t help you on the climbs if that’s your goal.
