The Boardman SLS frame for 2014 comes with more improved features to help you ride faster than before. The frame is manufactured from full high modulus carbon fibre (monocoque construction) and results in a frame weight of approx 850g. You also have improved cable routing and offers airflow enhancement and clean lines without the weight penalty of conventional routing. The full carbon forks have blade profiles that are designed for steering precision and are lightweight featuring a tapered steerer for further increased stiffness and steering precision.
The components fitted are Shimano Ultegra and offer excellent shifting performance across the 11 speed cassette. Also, the chainset featured is a compact and comes complete with chainring sizes of 50x34 - great for tackling the steep and/or climbs yet still offering good gearing for speed work.
Brakes are also Shimano Ultegra and these clamp around a pair of Shimano Ultegra clincher wheels that are coated with a pair of Continental Ultra Race tyres. Boardman Elite (alloy and carbon) components and a Fizik saddle are the finishing touches to this speed machine finishing off this package nicely.
