After a little teaser, the Boardman AiR/TTE triathlon bike made its debut in Kona this week.
The new top-level tri rig boasts a more rounded shape that’s reminiscent of its predecessor but completely reworked using F1-inspired design and CFD analysis. Those tools included the latest laser body scanning with their pro athletes on the bike and combining that with the computational fluid dynamics data to improve aerodynamics by a claimed 20% or more. The result is a bike that hides just about everything from the wind: brakes, cables, wires…even the nuts and bolts.
Despite all the stealth mounting and placements, they say it has a massively useful range of adjustments, and the entire bike can be tuned with just two sizes of allen wrenches.
