Boardman Bikes' new AiR/TTE time trial machine unveiled
Boardman Bikes AiR/TTE
Boardman Bikes has launched its new AiR/TTE range-topping time trial machine at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
The new machine is an evolutionary step forward from Boardman Bike's current AiR/TT range and is the product of three years of development by its >B56 special projects division.
Chris Boardman and Ironman world champion Pete Jacobs unveiled the bike to the public on Wednesday.
Most noticeable is the swooping top tube, and neatly integrated headtube/stem cluster with barely any cabling on show. Both front and rear brakes are also almost completely hidden from view on a frameset that is distinctly less angular than Boardman's current range-topping AiR/TT 9.8 model.
"It's taken over 36 months of hard work, expert design, testing, refining, and re-testing to deliver this high performance TT machine the result of which has been designed for out-and-out, superfast performance - for TTs and triathlon," Boardman said last week.
The new models join a well-established range of Boardman models that comprise road, mountain bike, cyclo-cross, time trial, track and hybrid models priced from £529 to £7,499.
Pricing, specification and availability of the AiR/TTE will be confirmed in November.
