Lightweight race winner

The German specialist magazine RoadBIKE subjected our FOCUS Mares CX Disc Ultegra to an intensive individual test, and gave it a rating of "Outstanding". The FOCUS Mares CX scored 92 out of a possible 100 points. "Its extremely lightweight and sturdy frame, its floating axles that can be released in a fraction of a second, its sporty riding position and its excellent directional stability" meant that such a score was inevitable: "The Focus Mares CX Disc Ultegra is an uncompromising racing cycle that meets the needs of professionals." The frame attracted additional plaudits and was likewise rated as "Outstanding".

"Its superbly designed carbon frame is extremely lightweight: the test bike's frame weighs in at just over 1000 grams! In spite of this, the frame set and forks are very stiff and thus give a sufficiently stable ride for even the toughest terrain. The seatpost developed by Focus in-house ensures comfort suspension is still achieved at the rear end. The real highlights are the floating axles, which were also developed in-house and have already received many enthusiastic reviews. It takes only a quarter of a turn to release and fasten them, which is ideal in a racing situation!"

Verdict: Its extremely lightweight and sturdy frame, its floating axles that can be released in a fraction of a second, its sporty riding position and its excellent directional stability: the Focus Mares CX Disc Ultegra is an uncompromising racing cycle that meets the needs of professionals. It comes equipped with high-quality components, and costs a little more than its competitors.
