Boardman's 'cross frames are designed with all the details that make owning and riding them a delight. Whether you head out on a country tour, a commute, or toe the start line in the weekend cyclocross race, the CXR series of bikes is versatile enough that you may only need this one bike. Boardman used the latest in frame and component technology to create three levels of frames that cater to any rider at any level. The CXR 9. 2 is designed with an ultralight carbon frame and a full complement of SRAM components in a package that won't empty your wallet.The CXR was developed using the SLR frame as its inspiration. Every tube was meticulously examined and tested to be the most efficient and lightweight as possible. Using the latest Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Boardman was able to test many different combinations of fiber types, fiber directions, resins, and tube shapes to ultimately come up with the CXR frame design. FEA allows material to be used where necessary while removing it where it is not, which results in the lightest and strongest frames possible.The oversized down tube keeps the steering sharp, while the oversized PF30 bottom bracket handles pedaling forces. The CXR's frame was constructed from an ultralight, high modulus unidirectional carbon fiber, constructed in a full monocoque design. Monocoque means that the frame is molded as a single piece, which allows for virtually infinite tube shapes and profiles. The fork was built out of the same predictable, race-tested, and ultralight carbon fiber. The CXR's mold incorporates a one-piece PF30 bottom bracket and oversized, asymmetric chainstays with disc mounts. These assist in both power transfer to the drivetrain as well as increased braking capabilities. The seat stays were given a wishbone profile which provides a smooth ride. Along these lines, the full carbon fork was built with a 1-1/2 to 1-1/8in tapered steerer for increased stiffness and steering precision. The CXR's fork was designed to ...
