Aptly named TTE or Time Trial Evolution, the bike is no slouch, in fact, far from that it is quite possibly the most advanced TT bike in the market right now. The Boardman Air/TTE represents over 3 years of hard work from their engineering design team. To obtain the best possible aerodynamics design, the team at Boardman made use of state-of-the-art Laser Body Scanning technology and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) design. These are technologies normally employed in the Formula 1 racing industry and for the very first time, used in the cycling industry for the design of the TTE.

The frame features ultra sleek lines, screaming aerodynamic cues with not a single bolt nor cable in sight. The braking system is also completely hidden and though this is not a new concept, Boardman’s execution is arguably the best looking implementation in the market thus far. The bike also features the standard integrated bar/stem system as most high-end TT bikes do but yet again, we see a more futuristic and thoughtful implementation in comparison to its peers.

Despite it not having a single bolt ‘in sight’, it remains a mechanics dream come true; only 2 allen keys are required to make ALL the necessary adjustments. How is that for a thoughtful design?

The Boardman TTE is available in the new 11-speed Shimano DuraAce or Ultegra groupset.
