The new AiR TT aerodynamic racing frame, fork, brakes and seatpost is built using a carbon monocoque construction. It has been CFD and Wind tunnel developed and the down tube, seat tube and seatpost are shaped for maximised airflow and reduce wind resistance in real world head and cross wind conditions.
The internal front brake is hidden within the fork structure to maximise clean air around the front of the frame with the rear brake also hidden under the BB to further maximise clean air at the rear end of the frame.
The forks and seat stays have flat inside and curved outside surfaces for enhanced airflow interaction between the frame and wheel (further enhanced when using deep section wheels). The mould design incorporates one piece BB30 bottom bracket and optimised oversize box section chainstays with steep taper at dropout for maximised power transfer and strength.

About Time Trial Bikes
Time trial and triathlon racing bikes are becoming highly advanced machines, with more and more research and development being invested in them to bring out the fastest most aerodynamic machine for the pro riders, the best thing about this is that all this is made available for the public as well. Time Trial and Triathlon bikes have come a long way in recent years with new technology and materials being implemented. The technology hasn't stopped at just the frame either, wheels and aero bars have received a lot of attention along with the rest of the components, TT and tri racing bikes are becoming featherweight, aerodynamic machines helping to reduce your times. Carbon fibre, aluminium and titanium are all used to produce the lightest, stiffest and most aerodynamic frames, wheels and components. All these materials have their advantages when used correctly and can be combined to create some truly exotic machines.

Magazine reviews for Boardman Air TT 9.8
Review from Bikeradar
The Boardman Air/TT 9.8 is the jewel in the crown of Boardman's four-bike time trial/tri range. Its black carbon finish is understated, but this is one hell of a speed machine. We felt at home on it straight away, ticking over at 22mph with little effort and easy handling. It's more than just a fancy set of wheels and a carbon frame – it's a complete race-ready package.
We were itching to ride the Air/TT 9.8 fast. When we stepped on the gas, it responded positively and we were up to 30mph without too much fuss. Part of the bike's speed is down to the details: the brakes are largely hidden from the wind, the cables are all internal, the forks are shaped to minimise turbulence caused by the wheel, the head tube is slender and all the other tubes have aero profiles.
At 17lb, the AiR/TT 9.8 is light for a disc-equipped TT bike. As such, hills aren't a problem for it, climbing swiftly and naturally, while on the descents we could take it up to warp factor 9 and it didn't et us down. It's quick and stable when it comes to straight-line speed, but it also handles confidently and you can take corners fast without scrubbing off too much precious momentum.
Smooth with no jarring, the AiR/TT 9.8 is comfy as well as fast, so you'l have no beef with it on long rides.
This is the sign of a well put together frame but you can also thank the Vittoria Corsa CX tubulars, which are excellent all-rounders. The Vision Carbon Trimax handlebars score well in the comfort stakes, with the thick pads on the extensions cushioning road vibration well.
A super-fast, responsive time trial/tri bike that's comfortable and handles well too.

Or if this is not possible would you ship to Australia without the wheels altogether, but still include the rear cassette. If so at what price?
