Unless you live within the flatlands of the midwest, you without a doubt search for each and every legal advantage conceivable to make mountaineering a little less daunting. Whether you are a racer or endurance rider, you’ll be able to appreciate the eye to detail that has been layered at the Boardman Bikes SLS frame. Paired with Shimano Di2 technology, the 9. 4S version of the bike does not compromise in strength, stiffness, or weight — or build. Chris Boardman knows a thing or two about bikes. Having competed and won in disciplines ranging from the Individual Pursuit to the Hour Record, he has applied his obsession with aerodynamics and weight to create a frame that may be lighter than the UCI minimum weight — only it is not “for show only.” It rides and climbs within the capable hands of professional riders across the world. The SLS frame used within the 9. 4 is only one small step down from the ultralight frame, and it only weighs 50 grams more. It features high modulus carbon fiber monocoque construction. This process allows virtually any tubing shape to be created. Moreover, to develop a frame profile that maximizes strength, stiffness, and weight, the SLS was once developed The use of Finite Element Anaylsis. FEA is a process by where specific lots applied by the rider to the frame are simulated but with far greater force. This helps to spot how the stresses and lots are distributed across every component. The use of this data, material is placed where it’s needed and got rid of where it’s not. As an example, the down tube has been shaped to specifically address strength, stiffness, and weight. The only-piece monocoque design contains a one-piece carbon PF30 bottom bracket and oversized chainstays. This transfers power from the crankset through to the rear drivetrain and wheel in order that none of your watts are wasted. Moreover, the profile of the seat stays increases shock absorption and reduces weight of the frame. The SLS Endurance Racing geometry is stable, predictable, and comfort…
