The Focus bike range has had a bold injection of colours for the new season line-up. We take a look at some of the road bikes for 2018…

Their colours are different. The pricing is revised for the Australian market. The naming protocols have evolved. There are a few minor technical changes. And the Focus road line-up for 2018 is ready to roll…!
Below you’ll find a gallery of images of three different iterations of the Focus Izalco Max. In 2018 it comes with electronic shifting (internal cabling – when required) or mechanical shifting (external derailleur cables) as well as a disc brake edition.
One glance is all it takes to notice the big change: colour…! In 2018, the Focus range is bright and beautiful.
These bikes have always performed well on the road and they are popular in bunches around Australia – but the tame schemes of 2017 have been ignited with colour for the new season range.

One minor change to the Focus road bike range is the way they are labelled: what had been known as the Cayo has become the Izalco Race. This is a quality bike that comes in either electronic or mechanical cabling configurations (ie. Di2 or Red eTap specific) and is one tier down from the top-of-the-line Izalco Max range.

There are bright, multi-coloured schemes or a more subdued single colour frame option. The pearl white of the SRAM Red eTap bike is a stunning finish and a strong contrast to the dark tones that had been so much a feature of previous ranges from Focus.
The pricing is good for the wireless shifting option and if this trend continues we’re bound to see much more eTap bikes on the roads this summer.

There are many other options in the Focus range, reflecting the diversity of the cycling market at the moment.
The MTB collection boasts some great bikes, including an impressive range of e-Bikes.
Focus has a strong association with cyclocross and the brand dominates that growing market in Australia. Again, the tame colours have been given a make-over for the 2018 range and you’ll find some well-priced packages which plenty of innovation.
