Boardman Bikes Elite AiR 9.2S Complete Bike – 2014

Frame Material: unidirectional carbon fiber
Fork Material: unidirectional carbon fiber
Headset: FSA Semi-integrated

Despite the fact that you are not a professional rider, you still want smooth, fast shifting, and you need it seamlessly incorporated into the frame, not a DIY add-on. Chris Boardman’s years of experience racing against the clock have led to the development of the AiR frame. The 9. 2S build is specifically designed to work at the side of Di2 to provide the ideal bike for triathlon, rolling road races, and criteriums. It is no surprise that each and every tube at the AiR used to be examined and tested to be the best shape conceivable. Boardman carefully designed the AiR’s tubes with shapes that not only efficiently care for head-on winds, but in addition the ones less-than-ideal crosswinds which might be encountered in racing situations. These wind-tunnel-tested tubes feature a rather slender width profile all through, which creates the optimal balance between vertical compliance and aerodynamics. The highest tube remains rather round, at the same time as the down tube, seat tube, and integrated seatpost have been shaped to maximise airflow and reduce wind-resistance. The material selected for the AiR’s frame is a high modulus unidirectional carbon fiber, constructed with a full monocoque design. In a similar fashion, the fork used to be built out of the similar predictable, race-tested, and ultralight carbon fiber. The AiR’s fork used to be designed to be exceptionally stable, comfortable, and to efficiently care for variable wind conditions. Boardman knows that both the proximity and spinning of the front wheel impact the fork’s ability to cut back wind-resistance. To this end, the blades were computer modeled to control that challenging local go with the flow condition. On account of this, Boardman flattened the insides of the blades and curved the out of doors surfaces for an enhanced airflow interaction between the fork and wheel. This same principle may be true for the seatstays, which is why they feature a equivalent profile. The frame used to be built with full internal Di2 compatible cable routing, furthering airflow enhancement and a clean overall appearance.Th…
