Riding is your passion, the BLACK FOREST your best friend. A high quality aluminium frame with incredible design features, this is an unbeatable ride with superb handling at the perfect price point. Cross-country races, long rides or marathons. What’s holding you back?
You can set off on marathons and discover the trails in your local area with the BLACK FOREST hardtail. Its intended purpose is fitness-oriented.
You’re prepared to forsake the excuses.
The BLACK FOREST’s triple-butted aluminium frame satisfies the highest material-related FOCUS standards.
The internal cable routing on the BLACK FOREST ensures that dirt doesn’t have a negative impact on your shifting performance.
The BLACK FOREST has racing built into its DNA – and you can make the most of this during races thanks to the sporty frame geometry.
The tapered head tube increases the headset stiffness while also reducing the steering weight.
Butted aluminium tubes are designed so that the walls are thicker at areas under more stress, with a constant external diameter. FOCUS aluminium tubes are triple-butted. This reduces the weight without impacting on the stability.
The cables and hydraulic lines are routed inside the frame for protection, creating a neat look and extending the service life of the lines for perfect gear shifting and braking at all times.
The DONNA line focuses on the female rider. We’ve considered the essential differences that exist. Those points of contact with the bike are decisive. That’s why we fitted female-specific bars and saddles, so that you’ll feel great on the bike, whatever you ride. Your preferences. Your colourways. Your bike. This is where you come first.
