- BENCHMARKYears of feedback from pro riders have led the MARES to become what it is today: the reference for cyclocross bikes, the industry standard for cyclecross performance.
- MEASUREDThe line between victory and defeat is often minimal. Our CX chainguide ensures your chain stays on and your race can be won.
- PRACTICALEasier, faster. Thanks to our patented R.A.T thru-axle, wheel changes take less than 10 seconds.
A name that Fabian Scholz and Max Hilger simply could not misinterpret. Nonetheless, the cyclocross stage race turned out to surpass their worst expectations. It was a story full of muck, pain and friendship.
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.
The cables and hydraulic lines are routed inside the frame for protection, which extends their life and ensures flawless shifting every time.
The Mares cyclocross bike is extremely easy to shoulder on account of its special frame design.
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.
The tapered headtube reduces the steering weight while increasing the headset stiffness.
For disc brake bikes in the road and cyclocross segment, the FOCUS engineers have developed the first thru axle system that combines greater strength and lateral stiffness with the fastest wheel-change system ever.
