Focus Mares AL Commuter Shimano Tiagra 10 Speed Cross Bike
The Focus Mares AX Tiagra Disc Cyclocross Commuter Bike 2016 comes ready for anything and everything with its Cyclocross pedigree, sturdy aluminium frame and included mudguards as well as lights. Commute on it during the week, race cyclocross on saturday then get in some good winter training miles on sunday.
The geometry has been cleverly thought through to make this bike as equally happy on the race circuit as it is whilst touring or on the road, gravel or country lanes. Therefore it could be your do it all commute, race and touring bike.
This aluminium frame has equally strong and stiff Mares AX Alloy Disc fork added. This results in a ride offering direct steering and pin sharp handling. Mud is this frames friend, as generous tyre clearance has been added to the fork as well as widely spaced, chunky seat stays.
Several features set this versatile bike apart. First is the internal routing of cables and hydraulic lines inside the frame for protection whether you are commuting or racing cyclocross. This prolongs their life and ensures flawless shifting every time. Even more noteworthy though is the Rapid Axle Technology (RAT), which gives the excellent strength and lateral stiffness of thru axles with the fastest wheel-change system ever. Time saved changing a wheel in a race or to repair a puncture during your commute is highly valuable.
Focus have provided the high quality finishing kit for the saddle, seat post, stem and handlebars. This is exceeded though by the reliable Shimano Tiagra components. These give you excellent ten speed shifting that is fast, precise and highly durable. Furthermore, the Shimano Shimano R517 cable Disc Brakes give you the great performance in power and modulation for assured breaking performance in all weathers and conditions.
The bike is fantastically completed with Concept EX hubs with DT Swiss R522 rims that are fitted with the striking looking Schwalbe Rocket Ron Focus Edition 622 X 33 tyres. Together they create a highly reliable, fast and exciting set of wheels.
