Focus Mares 6.8 2019
FOCUS MARES 6.8 DISC CYCLOCROSS BIKE 2019:
Created in collaboration with Mike Kluge, founder of Focus and former World Cyclocross Champion, the Mares range is race-ready. The 6.8 Disc Cyclocross Bike shares much of the technology from the top-end carbon models but has an aluminium frame construction that is paired with a full carbon fork. The innovative Rapid Axle Technology (RAT) system is a highlight and makes for extremely fast and easy wheel changes, vital in a race situation.
The geometry provides a fun ride that offers stable and confident handling that excels on the descents. Built up with a Shimano 105 groupset, you can be sure of reliability and performance with smooth shifting and powerful hydraulic braking. The WH-RS170 disc wheelset is light and robust.
