“There is an amazing power transfer and I am always confident when climbing an uphill.”

Leonard Chin’s
Boardman SLS 9.8 is one sharp-looking bike. The edgy and loud print on the frame of the bike makes it look one-of-a-kind, as it stands proud under the shining sun. The super lightweight bike matches an endurance junkie like Leonard that he has been on the road since after customizing it.

A 33-year-old Account Executive who has a knack for mechanics, he is passionate about his bikes, especially his Boardman. He is called the local Boardman expert for a reason.

It took about a month to pick, choose and ponder on the groupset, components and wheelset to build this bike, which has always been an ace on the road. During an uphill, he finds that there is very good contact and it allows for fast, responsive handling.

“There is an amazing power transfer and I am always confident when climbing an uphill.”

With its rider-friendly geometry, there is no obvious sign of neck, shoulder or back fatigue during the long descent. He also enjoys those speedy corners with this bike. Gear shifting is smooth and he does not face any challenges throughout his rides.

The SLS 9.8 custom Boardman, a stealthy black bicycle with yellow highlights and a stylish sharp seat, looks amazing as it goes full speed on the road. Look out!
