IZALCO MAX ODE TO IZALCO

Editor Russel Jones of New Zealand Road Cyclist magazine had a discussion with himself about the FOCUS IZALCO Disc. The outcome? A little love poem … All this aside, perhaps the true testament to this Izalco Max is the fact I’ve put in a shed load of miles on it, just because I wanted to, felt the need to. This bike, just like its caliper counterpart, simply makes you want to find an excuse to go and get out there, run amuck amongst the hills, lay it out on the flats and push your limits on every descent. It feels like a proper road bike should; and I never want to give it back - again. Read more

You're prepared for the ultimate

LIGHTWEIGHT

Staking its claim in the ultimate lightweight category, the frame of our Izalco Max weighs just 750 grams.

PROVEN AT THE TOUR DE FRANCE

The numerous successes of our UCI World Tour teams at the ultimate stage road race are testament to the prowess of the Izalco Max.

PIONEERING

The high-tech Izalco Max sets new standards as the lightest frame on the market to feature disc brakes.

Tapered headtube

The tapered head tube increases the headset stiffness while also reducing the steering weight.

R.A.T. stands for Rapid Axle Technology. This is the first thru-axle system to combine the stability and lateral stiffness of a floating axle with extremely fast wheel changes. The patented system is available for all road bike and cyclocross models with disc brakes, as well as on our race MTBs FOCUS O1E and Raven.

BB Pressfit 30

Pressfit 30 combines the benefits of the BB30 and Pressfit bottom brackets. Pressfit 30 features a preassembled seal in the cups to further prolong the bearing life.

SSPS

To ensure that all bike sizes offer the same level of quality, all frame sizes on offer are designed individually. This Stable Stiffness Per Size (SSPS) production method ensures that all sizes provide the perfect ratio of weight to stiffness.

6 years carbon warranty

Thanks to ongoing checks and the use of the latest manufacturing methods, we can offer the very best carbon quality with a long service life. For this reason, we can offer a 6-year manufacturer's warranty on all FOCUS carbon frames and forks.
