Chris Boardman is in Kona this year and he unveiled the new Boardman AiR TTE 9.8 race bike on which Ironman World Champion Pete Jacobs will compete this Saturday. We don't know the aero numbers of the previous 9.8 edition, but Chris Boardman hinted that this machine may be 20% faster.
The Boardman AiR TTE 9.8 looks very fast and clean indeed.
