If your idea of mountain biking nirvana means hitting rowdy trails, bike park laps or backcountry epics, the Boardman MTR 9.0 brings versatility, stability and progression together so you can push your growing skills with confidence. Dialed geometry, premium suspension and components deliver performance across diverse terrain.

A Capable Alloy Frame and Rear Suspension Design

The MTR 9.0 centres around a robust hydroformed alloy frameset providing a lively yet planted ride feel. 145mm of rear travel from the RockShox Deluxe Select+ shock smooths out rocks and roots. Up front, a 150mm RockShox Pike fork combines with the slack 66-degree head angle for front-end traction across variable surfaces.

Tunable Suspension Enhances Traction and Control

The air-sprung RockShox fork and rear shock can be customized to match your weight and riding style. Tune the compression and rebound to achieve your perfect ride. Paired with Boost hub spacing, the MTR 9.0 handles precisely across diverse terrain and conditions.

Confidence-Inspiring Control on Steep and Loose Terrain

4-piston SLX hydraulic disc brakes deliver the power to control your speed through tricky rock gardens and loose chutes. A wide-range 12-speed SLX drivetrain maintains momentum so you can climb efficiently and blast downhill with stability.

29” Wheels Roll Over Obstacles

Large 29” wheels paired with grippy tubeless-ready tyres help the MTR 9.0 stay on track over roots and variable terrain. The big contact patch sticks confidently in corners, letting you carry speed out of turns and down twisty singletrack.

Progress Your Riding in Any Terrain

From bike park days to backcountry epics, the MTR 9.0 brings versatility so you can challenge yourself on rugged terrain with stability. Dialed geometry and premium components give you the tools to grow your skills and seek out new adventures.
