2016 Focus Mares AX Tiagra Cyclocross Bike

what is this?

Mud, shoulder, finish, podium. That sums up cyclocross with the Mares, the cyclocross bike with FOCUS DNA and World Championship pedigree. With its flat-oval top tube, the bike sits snugly on the rider's shoulder during the running sections. The geometry ensures the necessary agility and maximum ground clearance in technical sections. This is the perfect machine to help Team Rapha, Jeremy Powers and you achieve success on World Cup courses throughout the world.

The robust, lightweight aluminum frame presents the state of the art. The tubeset was butted and hydroformed to only use as much material as needed in the necessary places of the power flow. The Focus Rapid Thru Axle Technology offers superb stiffness values. The head tube is tapered for high steering head rigidity in delicate race situations. The same full-carbon fork as in the top FOCUS Carbon Crossbikes is also used for this Mares. This mix provides a secure and confident cornering behavior, which effectively prevents warping of the fork under braking.

This bike is equipped with mechanical disc brakes from Shimano. Turning away from the rim brake offers a variety of advantages. There is no damage to the rim, under all weather conditions the same braking power is given, rim weight can be saved (lower rotational inertia) and in the case of spoke failure it is possible to ride on. In addition to the great braking power and immense amount of space for dirt and mud, they also allow the frame designers to give the rear more flex. The history of the mountain bike already told the path to go.

The Mares frame furthermore features internally routed cables, rack mount-, fender- option (frame only), thru axles and a clean mount of the brake caliper on the chainstay. The painting is made in powder coating method. The derailleur hanger is replaceable.
Along with the gorgeous, great-handling alloy frame and carbon fork, you get a tough Concept Disc wheelset and a precision-shifting new Shimano Tiagra drivetrain with light, stiff Shimano Tiagra compact cranks and powerful, mechanical Shimano R517 disc brakes.
