Takes you further: the FOCUS PARALANE road bike has a tyre clearance of up to 35 mm and therefore enough space for wide-profile tyres for discovering new paths off the asphalt too. The PARALANE offers a huge amount of comfort, even on long road bike rides. Disc brakes ensure safe braking in all weather. Narrow, attractive mudguards protect against dirt and spray. Of course, the matching mudguards are included as standard and can be mounted quickly and easily. A road bike for all eventualities.
"This is a bike that guarantees fun, offers hours of pure riding pleasure and is characterised particularly by both its high level of comfort and its handling."Ciclista #21
Comfort Improving Areas (C.I.A.)
C.I.A. reduces muscle fatigue by increasing rider comfort. The comfort of the bike is increased by making the tube cross-sections of the seatstays, chainstays and seat tube (Comfort Improving Areas) as flat and flexible as possible, so that the frame absorbs the forces caused by uneven surfaces, the bike runs more smoothly and the rider stays stronger for longer.
Rapid Axle Technology (R.A.T.)
R.A.T. stands for Rapid Axle Technology and is the world's fastest floating axle. This is the first thru-axle system to combine the stability, alignment and lateral stiffness of a floating axle with extremely fast wheel changes. The simplicity and speed of the patented R.A.T. system exceeds that of even conventional quick-release devices.
* R.A.T. thru-axles are sold under licence in the UK (UK patent GB2414971B)
Stable Stiffness Per Size (S.S.P.S.)
In order to ensure that all bike sizes offer the same ride characteristics, all available frame heights are individually designed and feature a specially developed carbon lay-up. This Stable Stiffness Per Size (SSPS) production method ensures that all sizes provide the perfect weight-to-stiffness ratio.
