The FOCUS IZALCO Team 1.0 has come out as one of the top players on the market these days. The Izalco has been rated #1 race bike of the year by Velo News, yes #1. Featuring 60 Ton Mitsubishi Unidirectional Carbon, the Team 1.0 is as stiff as it gets although wonderfully comfortable in all the right places; for example it features a 27.2 diameter seat post with an hourglass seat stay design allowing you to get some slight road absorbtion when climbing in the saddle. In other words the carbon has been placed in specific places that allow comfort when climbing. It has full carbon drop outs indicating the quality of carbon that is used to be top notch, BB30 Bottom bracket which can be blamed for its ultimate performance and response. This bike is really a step above the rest, the technology that went into the FOCUS IZALCO is unsurpassed and recognized by reputable critics. The FOCUS IZALCO is the choice for either the pro racer or your casual weekend rider due to the fact that it does not play games but gives you that advantage you desire.
Black is beautiful – the FOCUS top racer, Izaclo Team 1.0 in matt and gloss black.
The Izalco has also been heralded as an Editor's Choice by Bicycling Magazine for two years running, and an Editor's pick by Velo Magazine. The Izalco Team frameset is like all things German: overengineered and simplistically beautiful. Sure, it has the usual buzz words: tapered head tube and BB30, but the design goes far beyond keeping up with industry trends.
FOCUS stands for innovative technology and design, and we pride ourselves on being at the focal point of these qualities. Our bicycles are developed and continually improved up by a precision team of German engineers, scientists, professional cyclists, designers and technicians. The development and testing regimens at FOCUS are among the most rigorous in the industry. We push our prototypes to the breaking point to identify and eliminate even the tiniest flaws before our bikes go to production. FOCUS is not only our name; it is what we do
The BB30 system complements the hollow chamber technology by using a large-sized quill shaft and oversized industrial bearings. Hence the frames get more lightweight, more stiff and become more efficient. In addition BB30 provides more room for rider’s feet – the so called U-factor.
More lightweight and stiffer than dropouts made of aluminium, FOCUS Carbon Dropouts are highly compressed and strengthened.
FOCUS bikes are all made in Germany. That may not sound like a big deal, but it means everything. Germany’s engineering know-how, skilled craftsmanship, stylish design and innovation are world-renowned. Made in Germany is a label that stands for quality. We never cut corners to shave costs. All FOCUS frames and technologies are developed in Germany’s Cloppenburg region, and we have nearly 500 employees nationwide. FOCUS is proud of its German roots. Our customers can be, too.
The frame is the heart of each FOCUS bike, the backbone of a superior ride. The components are the arms and legs, the hands and head that complete the product. With that in mind, our product managers source only the best components and parts the market has to offer and integrate them with our renowned frames. FOCUS bikes are then fine-tuned to meet the demands of individual cyclists.
