Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the launch of the 2011 Boardman Performance Bikes series at an exclusive venue in the heart of London. World and Olympic Champion, Chris Boardman was there talking about the new 2011 range and the new developments put into the line.

Here’s Chris welcoming us all and talking about the 2011 range:

The 2011 Performance Series line up comprises of five Road, three Hybrid, CX, five MTB Hard-tail and two MTB full suspension bikes.

Highlights of the range include:

  • the all-new Pro Carbon Road featuring BB30, tapered steerer, internal cable routing and Shimano Ultegra at £1,799
  • the Pro Carbon MTB featuring internal cable routing, tapered steerer, Rock Shox SID fork and SRAM X9 at £1,599,
  • the Road Team featuring tapered steerer, BB30 and Shimano 105 at £999
  • the MTB Pro with tapered steerer, BB30 and SRAM X9 2×10 at £999

According to the press release, the aerodynamic road and race ready MTB frames utilise high modulus carbon fibre combined with computer developed tube profiles. The new alloy Road, MTB, Hybrid and CX models have all been re-engineered with the emphasis on attention-to-detail resulting in pure performance and range from £500 to £1,000.

I’ll upload some pictures of the frames as soon as I receive them from the Boardman’s PR company.
