Boardman Bikes has released a women-specific sub-£1000 full carbon-fibre road model equipped with Shimano Tiagra and 105 components.

The carbon-fibre frame and full carbon forks are outfitted with 20-speed Shimano 105 and Tiagra drivetrain, with FSA Gossamer chainset. The wheels feature Mavic CXP22 rims, Continental Ultra Sport II tyres and stopping comes via the respectable Tektro R540 calipers.

Gearing is a sensible 50/34-teeth rings matched to a 12-28 tooth cassette.

Boardman Bikes are claiming an all-in weight of 8.55kg (18.85lbs) and is available in sizes 48.5cm, 50cm, 51.5cm and 53cm.

The Road Team Carbon Fi is available now exclusively from Halfords priced £999, and joins the existing aluminium-framed Sport Fi road model in the company's women-specific 'Fi' bike range.
