Boardman Bikes developing 'superlight sportive' models

Boardman B56

Boardman Bikes is developing a new 'superlight' carbon-fibre frameset aimed at the cyclo-sportive market.

According to the company, the B56 frameset will form the backbone for a new range of sportive bikes currently undergoing testing and development.

"This is an exciting development from our R&D department," said Chris Boardman, R&D Director & Co-founder of Boardman Bikes. "Two years in development and testing, the fine tuned result is designed to cater for the rider who spends a lot of time in the saddle - either training, racing or purely for the love of cycling."

Boardman Bikes published a video clip on Friday via YouTube showing test riders putting the new models through their paces in Kitzbühel, Austria.

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 £7499.

Pricing and availability of the new models to be confirmed.

Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
