Seeking an aluminium road bike equally suited to weekday commutes and weekend rides? The Boardman SLR 8.8 delivers all-weather performance and comfort enhanced by a smart selection of versatile components.

Engineered for Speed, Efficiency and Control

The SLR 8.8 centres around a responsive triple-butted alloy frame and carbon tapered fork that work together to absorb vibrations and transfer power. 28mm tubeless-ready tyres and powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes add confidence-inspiring grip and modulation across variable surfaces.

Shimano's 10-speed Tiagra drivetrain provides a wide gear range for conquering climbs and maintaining momentum on fast descents. Mudguard and rack mounts expand this bike's potential as a capable commuter and foul weather training partner.

Balanced Geometry for Comfort and Fun

Between the slightly relaxed head tube angle, shorter reach and higher stack height, the geometry of the SLR 8.8 Disc provides a balanced and comfortable riding position. Performance-focused tube shaping helps reduce drag, yet the ride feels planted rather than overly aggressive.

This blend of comfort, versatility and efficiency makes every ride enjoyable - whether you're tackling a century sportive or just spinning home after work. The SLR 8.8 Disc removes limitations so you can simply focus on the ride.
