The French bike magazine Vélo Tout Terrain tested the FOCUS O1E team and gave it a rating of 16.4 points out of 20. The testers particularly liked the FOCUS O1E’s pleasantly simple handling, its effective damping and its comfort and agility.
“The distinctively shaped top tube virtually shows you the direction you’re heading in. And whether you like it or not – the stiffness of the head tube ensures high-precision steering.”
Verdict: What a bike! It’s hard to believe that the suspension travel is just 100 mm, because it never reaches its limits.
