Dutch Bike & Trekking magazine tested four Allround bikes against each other. Our Focus Spine Factory won against the Cannondale Habit Carbon 27.5”, Canyon Nerve AL 9.0 LTD 29” and the Specialized Camber Elite Carbon 29”.
“It’s quite a funny phenomenon, when a bike looks good, it quite often is a good bike, and that especially counts for the Focus Spine.”
Verdict of the Editor:
If I were allowed to keep one bike from the Test, it definitely would be the Focus Spine C Factory. What a Funbike is that! While going downhill, the bike gives you the feeling you are unconquerable, while in climbs it can easily follow the other bikes in the test. Also the Focus Spine is, with 12.3 kilos on the scale, the lightest bike in the test (size L).
