Boardman has always been a brand focused on producing high-performance bikes that don't carry the high-performance price tag, and the brand new Boardman ADV 9.0 adventure bike continues that trend.

The ADV line isn't totally new to the brand's range and, in 2018, the ADV 9.0 was an aluminium-framed 'single-track brawler', that rolled on 650b wheels and 50mm tyres. Unfortunately, the bike ran into the problem that many similarly rowdy gravel bikes do, in that, a hardtail mountain bike was simply better suited to the terrain than a small-wheeled, fat-tyre drop-bar bike.
