fOCUS BICYCLES DEMO PROGRAM
2014 marks the 4th year of our partnership with FOCUS Bikes of Germany. We offer a selection of 14 FOCUS Izalco high modulus carbon bikes for use on all of our trips. Why FOCUS? There were numerous criteria when establishing this program and only one company could resolve our most important issue: provide beautifully crafted, highly innovative and technically advanced bikes in a range of sizes and specifications of our choice. We have selected FOCUS Bikes flagship frame, the Izalco, which will be outfitted with SRAM Red components and DT Swiss wheels. This is the same bike the U.S based Jelly Belly Presented by Kenda professional team rides, and the same generation of frame raced by the former Milram squad, and for 2013 ridden by AG2R Mondiale.
our focus is on you
FOCUS Bicycles innovative design and technology culminates in the Izalco frame. The high modulus carbon frame features internal cable routing for added rigidity, the newly developed BB30 bottom bracket for stiffness and a tapered head tube for agile handling. Scott Rittschof, president of FOCUS Bicycles USA, says "It's for enthusiasts who love the feel of a racing machine." FOCUS has deep German roots. Their production facilities and administrative offices are located in Cloppenburg, in Lower Saxony. German products have a global reputation for high quality, exceptional innovation and stylish design.
