Since their launch in 2007, Boardman bikes have been going from strength to strength in the cycling industry. With Olympic gold medalist, hour record holder and Tour de France stage winner, Chris Boardman at the head, this company has a unique perspective on the cycling industry.
Nicknamed ‘The Professor’ for his attention to detail and early adoption of power meters, Chris Boardman heads up R&D at the company, and is known for his forward thinking and innovation. He has taken the vital data and experience he gathered as an elite cyclist and technical advisor to the British track cycling team and applied it to all the bikes in the Boardman range.
Two time Olympic champion triathlete, Alistair Brownlee, often rides his Boardman to victory.
Boardman is a British brand, and their frames are conceived, designed and tested in London. Production occurs in Taiwan, which is considered to be one of the best countries for mass bicycle manufacture. Central to Boardman’s philosophy is the tightly held belief that cycling is for everyone, meaning that you’ll be able to find the right bike for you somewhere within their range.
