MARES 9.8 Features
Lightweight, resilient carbon frame with R.A.T. Quick-release axle
Simple and reliable in extreme situations: SRAM Apex 1x11 shifting
Reliable Alex Rims CXD-6 wheelset
In spite of adverse conditions
Lightweight and sturdy
Thanks to super-lightweight and sturdy carbon fibres, the full MARES frameset including the carbon fork only weights 1420 g (970 g/450 g). The perfect mix of high modulus and high strength carbon fibres makes the best balance between minimum weight and maximum strength for advanced Cyclo-Cross riding. Our tests ensure maximum strength significantly above the standard.
UCI approval and ready for racing
The race-oriented geometry and the perfect balance of fast, agile and sturdy make the MARES capable of anything – whether it is Cyclo-Cross racing or your daily power hour on trails. Naturally, UCI approval for racing is no problem with the MARES.
The world's fastest thru-axle
Thanks to our patented FOCUS R.A.T.* quick-release axle, wheel changes can be carried out fast and easily within seconds.
