The German road bike magazine Tour took a closer look at the FOCUS Izalco Ergoride in its extensive comparison of comfort road bikes. Twelve marathon road bikes worth around € 2,000 were put to the test. The comfortable Izalco Ergoride Ultegra earned high marks with its attractive overall package and was awarded the best rating among brands for specialist dealers: 2.0.
"On the road, the bike impresses with a relaxed riding position and highly accurate tracking, even when riding at a rapid pace."
Verdict: Attractively equipped carbon frame for an upright riding position; smooth handling. Very small frame sizes.
