Product Description

If you’re serious about racing cyclocross this winter then the CXR 9.0 is designed to offer elite level performance without a pro level price tag. The CXR 9.0 uses our high modulus C10 carbon fibre CXR frame and fork with a SRAM Apex 1 groupset. Refined with feedback from Elite CX racers, the CXR frame and fork deliver an efficient but smooth ride with plenty of mud clearance and fast but predictable handling.

The CXR Elite Five wheels and 33mm Clement MXP tyres will run tubeless with a dash of sealant, allowing much lower tyre pressures for better grip without the risk of punctures. SRAM Apex hydraulic disc brakes offer powerful braking with great modulation, meaning you can push hard in every corner knowing you can keep things under control if things get slippery.

Weight: 8.6 Kg *based on a medium

CXR

The Boardman CXR 9 Series range builds on our 2017 National Trophy winning bikes, using elite athlete feedback to deliver a truly focussed Cyclocross racing machine. We’ve increased tyre clearances to combat clogging mud, even on the stickiest courses, and introduced a brand new fork to improve handling in tight corners. 

We spent countless hours of R&D time tailoring the CXR range to suit the demands of riding fast over mixed terrain. The 9 Series CXR models use Boardman’s high modulus C10 carbon to ensure the best balance of weight, stiffness and compliance.

Single chainring 1X drivetrains with clutched rear derailleurs throughout the range also reduce complexity and ensure minimal dropped chains. Combining all of this with tubeless ready wheels and tyres mean that the CXR 9 Series bikes are ready to race straight out of the box.

Off-Road Optimised

The CXR range has been designed to be ridden hard and fast across almost any terrain. We have combined slim, wishbone seat stays and oversized, box section chainstays to give a perfect blend of comfort, control and efficiency.

Tapered C10 Carbon Fork

The interface between the fork and the headtube is responsible for transmitting all of your steering inputs into your wheels, so is a key component in giving you confidence in your bike's handling.

We use an oversized 1-1/2" lower headset bearing to allow a smoother flow of fibres from the fork crown into the steerer tube, increasing both stiffness and durability of the fork. This translates into better steering feel and control, helping you navigate through deep rutted mud or dodge potholes on your way into work.

Thru Axle & Disc Brakes

When riding off-road, you need power and control from your brakes. The hydraulic disc brakes throughout the CXR range offer huge amounts of braking force, which you can control with just a single finger, meaning you can adjust how much braking power you are using in a fraction of a second. This lets you fully exploit the grip available from your tyres to bring you to a stop in as quick a time as possible.

When this is combined with thru axles, which securely lock your wheels into the dropouts, the result is outstanding braking and steering, perfect for slaloming through the trees or sliding through the mud.

Tubeless Ready

The Boardman CXR Elite wheels are tubeless ready and come fitted with rim tape out of the box. With the tubeless ready Clement tyres already fitted, all you need to do is add sealant and inflate. Removing tubes from your tyres eliminates the risk of pinch flats, allowing you to run lower pressures for improved grip, and the sealant should stop any punctures before your tyre deflates.

Road Bike Guide

 

Road Bike Guide

Is a Road Bike Right for Me?

If you’re new to the cycling world, we highly recommend taking a look at our bike buying guide overview or our road bike buying guide to help you decide what type of bike is right for your needs.

When you’re choosing a road bike, there are a few things to look out for which can help you work out the quality and performance you can expect from a particular model.


Usage

What road bike is right for you? There are a few different kinds of road bike, and they all have their specialities. We break down their strengths and usage in an easy to read table below.

Type of Road Bike

Usage

Pros

Cons

Sportive Road

Long distance, training, sportive and endurance riding, as well as rough roads.

Comfortable, relaxed geometry is more accessible for riders new to road cycling.

Not as aggressive or stiff, so serious racers may look for a road race bike.

Road Race

Racing and training.

Lightweight, aggressive geometry for most efficient riding position.

Range limited to tarmac roads and cycle paths.

Aero Race

Road and criterium racing.

Aero dynamically efficient and fast. Stiff frames and aggressive geometry.

Heavier than road race bikes.

Flat Bar Road

Training and commuting. Comfortable, fast city riding.

Upright riding position is great for training and city riding.

Limited options of bikes. MTB-like position not great for racing.

Frame Material

The vast majority of road bikes are made from either aluminium alloy or carbon fibre. Alloy bikes can offer higher tier groupsets for a lower price, whereas carbon frames come at a significant premium, but are lighter and give that extra performance advantage.

Aluminium

Aluminium alloy frames
Alloy frames have come a long way recently, using hydroforming and butting to keep the weight low, while keeping stiffness high.

Carbon fibre

Carbon fibre composite frames
Carbon frames have a lighter weight and greater stiffness, while maintaining excellent comfort.


Fork

Road bike forks are made to be lightweight and stiff, giving accurate steering, as well as a comfortable ride. Budget road bikes will have alloy forks, whereas mid-range forks often have mix-material forks, with alloy steerer tubes and carbon fork blades. Carbon bladed forks deliver a more comfortable ride, absorbing road vibrations and flexing slightly in rough roads. Full carbon forks are found on high end road bikes. They are especially lightweight and offer even greater stiffness.


Groupset

A bike’s groupset, or drivetrain, is where the biggest difference in component quality is seen. A complete groupset comprises of the following parts:

  • Chainset (aka Crankset)
  • Bottom bracket
  • Brakes
  • Brake levers
  • Shifters
  • Front & rear derailleur
  • Chain
  • Cassette

Road groupsets are supplied by Shimano, SRAM or Campagnolo. Having reliable and fast shifting can make all the difference when pushing hard. The majority of road bikes have double chainring drivetrains, while triple chainring setups are usually only found on low end bikes and touring bikes. Road bikes will have 7-11 speeds in the rear, with higher gears meaning more options for smoother riding.

Road Groupsets

Brakes

Disc Brakes

Disc brakes
Disc brakes offer greater stopping power and modulation. They work as well in wet as dry weather, and don’t require the rims to be replaced periodically. They come at a weight penalty, however.

Calliper Rim Brakes

Calliper rim brakes
Rim brakes are lightweight and easy to maintain. They allow greater aerodynamics for aero road bikes and


Wheels & Tyres

Types of tyres

Road bikes tyres don’t vary as much as mountain bike or even hybrid, but they still make a huge difference to how the bike rides. For a detailed look into road bike tyres, see our guide.

Road tyres have long been offered as either clincher or tubular. Clincher tyres are the standard tyres that fit onto standard rims with a tube holding the air. Tubular tyres are glued to a special tubular rim and are fully encased, doing without a tube.

Tubeless tyres are now a feature of road bikes, delivering a compromise between tubular and clincher tyres. They look the same as clincher tyres, but pair up with special rims to offer a proper seal within the tyres, also doing away with tubes.

Tyre Size

Road tyres are traditionally quite narrow. Nowadays the accepted standard is 25c, but 23c and 28c tyres are very common too. The larger the size tyre, the more comfortable they will be, but they will also be heavier and potentially slower rolling. Sportive and flat bar road bikes will commonly have wider tyres, whereas race and aero road bike will tend towards narrower tyres.
