Chain Stay Protection Cover

A standard feature on FOCUS carbon frames – for effective protection against the consequences of chain suck.

To technology

Twin Bearing System

The Focus Twin Bearing System is better able to compensate for lateral forces acting on the rear triangle. This extends the bearing life.

To technology

142 x 12 mm thru axle

The 142 x 12 mm thru axle improves lateral stiffness and ensures that the wheel and brake disc are perfectly aligned to the brake body.

Comparison of wheel sizes

26R, 27R or 29R - what is the perfect wheel size? Read more!

To technology

Wheel size 29"

29" wheels have better roll-over properties, better traction and lateral grip around bends.

To technology

Wheel size 27.5"

All FOCUS bikes with a travel of greater than 100 mm are equipped with highly agile and manoeuvrable 27.5" wheels.

To technology

Tapered headtube

The tapered headtube reduces the steering weight while increasing the headset stiffness.

To technology

Internal cable and line routing

The cables and hydraulic lines are routed inside the frame for protection, which extends their life and ensures flawless shifting every time.

To technology

Stable Stiffness Per Size/SSPS

To offer a selection of sizes without compromising on quality, the FOCUS engineers individually design each frame size. So every version offers the optimum weight-to-stiffness ratio.

To technology

Triple butted aluminium frame

Triple-butting means three different wall thicknesses and reduces weight without losing strength.

Triple butted aluminium frame

Triple-butting means three different wall thicknesses and reduces weight without losing strength.

To technology

FOCUS 100% carbon fork

The FOCUS full-carbon fork, including the dropouts, is made seamlessly from a single piece. It offers even higher lateral stiffness coupled with good absorption of impacts with the road surface.

To technology

Longer head tube

Bikes with a longer head tube allow for a more upright, and therefore more comfortable, riding position.

To technology

Sloping top tube

FOCUS has developed the ideal frame geometry for long-distance riders, people with a shorter upper body and racing cyclists who like their comfort.

To technology

Women-specific contact points

To maximise riding comfort for all female cyclists, the FOCUS product managers equip all FOCUS Donna models with special components.

To technology

Flat Designed Comfort Seat Stays

The technological solution to the combination of drive-efficient propulsion with improved comfort.
