Focus Izalco Max 8.8 - Fast aero racer with carbon upgrades

The Izalco Max focuses on the essence of a road bike: explosiveness, efficiency and aerodynamics. Thanks to the razor-sharp carbon frame, whose profile has been optimized in the wind tunnel, you can beat the headwind at a bargain. Gifted seconds that you will gladly take with you on the hunt for trophies. The German manufacturer Focus has pooled all its experience from professional racing and built a racer that encourages you to get the best out of your body. In competition, during training, with friends or alone against the wind.

The 8.8 version of the Izalco Max comes with a number of carbon upgrades that make it even lighter and faster. The most striking highlight is the aerodynamic Novatec wheelset with high-profile carbon rims. The streamlined seat post is also made of carbon fiber. The reliable shifting and braking components from Shimano are also impressive: The 105 groupset has recently been visually modernized and technically upgraded to 2 x 12 gears. In typical Shimano fashion, there is hardly any difference in terms of function compared to the higher-ranked Shimano groupsets. The hydraulic 105 disc brakes are among the most robust and maintenance-friendly brakes on the market.

Focus Bikes - synonymous with sophisticated and durable bikes

The highlight of the Izalco Max is the Carbon Technology frame. Thanks to the clever routing of the carbon mats on the seat tube, head tube, seat stays and bottom bracket, the frame is laterally stiff but dampens vibrations in the vertical direction. A perfect balance between stability and comfort. The geometry guarantees safe handling at high speeds. Thanks to the thru-axle system, the wheels sit 100 percent precisely in the dropouts after each installation and removal. And the brake disks are guaranteed to run without rubbing between the callipers. The frame and fork are a prime example of a clear, uncluttered design. With the help of the C.I.S system developed by Focus, the cables run from the stem inside the frame to the components and even through the fork blades to the front brake. You can also change the stem without having to open the brake lines. And a computer mount for Garmin and Wahoo devices is also integrated. A strong performance!
