Precision Bikes is excited to have Boardman Bikes on the floor. We currently have the Di2 specific version of the AiR frame. Designed for speed – wind tunnel developed tube profiles combined with excellent power transfer and lightweight equal a versatile class leading race bike whether your riding passion is Tri, TT, Road Race or Sportive. Frame highlights: – New AiR Aerodynamic Racing frame, fork and seatpost – Shimano Ultegra Di2 specific internal cable routing – Full high modulus carbon fibre monocoque construction – Wind tunnel developed tube profiles – Down tube, seat tube and seatpost shaped for maximized airflow and reduced wind resistance in real world head and cross wind conditions – Forks and seat stays have flat inside and curved outside surfaces for enhanced airflow interaction between the frame and wheel. This is further enhanced when using deep section wheels – Mould design incorporates one piece BB30 bottom bracket and optimized oversize box section chainstays with steep taper at dropout for maximized power transfer and strength – Full internal cable routing for further airflow enhancement and clean lines – Stable, predictable geometry to cope will all race situations – Full carbon fork with tapered fork steerer for increased stiffness and steering precision Boardman AiR/9.0 reviews: Gold Award “…the Boardman rewards riders who want to get quickly up to speed and stay there, feeding a constant stream of power through the cranks.” “…the smooth handling inspires confidence into corners while the stiff back end is responsive to power when sprinting on the way out of bends.” “With a correct triathlon setup – for which you will probably want to go for a more TT-friendly saddle – the AiR 9.0 is a great choice for those who don’t want the expense of owning separate tri and road bikes, giving an aero edge, comfort and great performance in a seriously good value package to satisfy both training and racing.” “An unassailable balance of aerodynamics, performance and practicality…” Pros: Excellent handling and sublime comfort even in long sessions.

675

• CARBON FRAME AND MONOBLOC MANUFACTURE

The 675 is the latest born LOOK road frame. It benefits from a completely new manufacturing process: the 3 most highly loaded frame zones are first draped on mandrels before being placed inside the mould with the rest of the frame for moulding. This technology permits a large gain in stiffness and a stronger frame.

• INTEGRATED A-STEM STEM & DIRECT DRIVE CONCEPT

For the first time on a road bike, LOOK has completely integrated the stem into the frame design. As well as the aesthetic impact this integration allows us to apply our Direct Drive concept meaning optimising all the cockpit parameters. We achieve this by using a short head tube tapering from 1 “ at the bottom to 1 1/8” at the top and removing the spacers. With this shorter pivot, oversized bearings and a stiffer stem, the whole cockpit is stiffer and more accurate. The A-Stem permits very accurate height and length adjustments without having to add spacers.

• DCSC 2: IDEAL COMPROMISE BETWEEN STIFFNESS AND FLEXIBILITY

The 675 is designed in a very sporting spirit whilst being comfortable. The geometry takes this double objective into account and, for example, adopts a fairly high head tube to favour comfortable positions. The fork dampens vibrations, the bases and stays adopt a carbon composition and a shape ensuring a 25 % difference in lateral and vertical stiffness. This is the second-generation DCSC (Dual Comfort and Stifness Concept) concept. This concept is based on flattening the tube sections without reducing their diameter. The lateral rigidity is improved, also improving the vertical flexibility.

• STANDARD 86.5 MM PRESS FIT BOTTOM BRACKET

The 675 adopts the Press Fit standard: the bearings are integrated into the frame for better finishes, which also protects them from contamination. The Press Fit standard seals the bearings better because they are inserted into polyamide cups that are than pressed into the frame. Consequently fitting the bottom bracket is eased and its durability increased. The other advantage is that the frame is wider at the crankset because it includes the bearings. As a result the lateral stiffness increases, guaranteeing better transmission of pedalling forces.

• DI2 AND EPS COMPATIBLE INTEGRATED CABLE

The 675 has integrated cable passages in the down tube and in the right base and removable cable stops (LOOK patent). By changing these stops, mechanical groupsets can be mounted as easily as the Shimano (DI2) or Campagnolo (EPS) electric groupsets.
