Mares AX 1.0 put to the test by TOUR
TOUR (11/2013) tests the Mares AX 1.0
In its November issue, TOUR Magazine tested six cyclocross bikes up to € 1,600 – including the Mares AX 1.0.
While only just missing out on first place with its 2.3 rating, it must be noted that the Mares AX 1.0 was awarded by far the highest marks (1.8) of all the bikes tested for its frame set – the aluminium frame with carbon fork newly developed for the 2014 model year.
As well as all the facts and figures validated by the test lab, the testers also liked the paintwork in the design of the Rapha FOCUS Cyclocross team, and the hydraulic disc brakes.
TOUR readers verdict:
"Far and away the most handsome bike in the test. I would definitely buy one."; "Excellent brakes. After running them in, they had almost too much bite for me"; "This is an amazingly good bike for the money"
