Elegant and Exclusive Mercedes-Benz Focus Bikes
Four sporty bikes for almost every occasion are the first result of the new cooperation between Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH and the renowned bicycle manufacturer FOCUS.
The bicycles, developed and produced in Germany, have an exclusive Mercedes-Benz design and are equipped with high-quality components. The elegant, exclusive design of the new Mercedes-Benz bikes from the performance bike manufacture FOCUS has a black frame combined with pure blue contrasts found on the saddle or the chain struts. The following are the four sporty bikes on- and off-road, as well as for leisure time and training:
With 27.5 or 29 inch wheels and four different frame heights (38/42 and 46/50), everyone will find the right size for their individual step length with the Mountainbike. Thanks to the carbon frame, it weighs only 11.4 kg. The shifter cables and brake lines are installed in the frame. The Hardtail is equipped with a Reba RL suspension fork with 100 mm spring travel from RockShox. The SLX group from Shimano (22 gears) is used on the chain ring and crank. Shimano-Deore disc brakes on the front and rear axles also prove reliable on downhill passages. This bike rolls on Continental Race King SL 2.2 tires.
At approximately 7.9 kg, the Racing Bike from FOCUS is even lighter. High-quality equipment also in this case: carbon frames with internal shifter cables. The fork is also made of carbon. The 28-inch wheels are DT-SWISS R522, topped with Continental Ultrasport SL tires. A total of 22 gears can be selected, as on the rear axle sits an 11-speed cassette (Shimano Ultegra), chain ring is a Shimano 105. The stem, handlebar, saddle and support come from Concept. Braking in the front and rear is done with the hydraulic disc brake Shimano Ultegra.
The Fitness Bike has an aluminium frame and 28-inch wheels, aligned with Schwalbe Smart Sam tires. Hydraulic disc brakes (Tektro HD-M285) allow safe deceleration; the chain shifting with 27 gears always guarantees the optimal translation ratio. The switching group comes from Shimano (Alivio / Acera). The suspension fork (SR Suntour NEX HLO) has a spring travel of 63 mm and can be locked - practically on slopes, for example. The bike weighs approx. 13.5 kg.
In addition, equipped with Nabendynamo, mudguards and carrier carriers, the Trekking Bike is ready for the next trip. In contrast to its fitness model brother, the trekking bike weighs approximately 15.6 kg and rolls on Schwalbe Citizen Light tires.
The Bike Helmets from uvex for Mercedes-Benz fit perfectly with the new bikes from FOCUS. The helmet shell is black with blue accents, while the shield is white. The unisex model has vent openings and can be adjusted with an adjustable belt system from 56 to 61 cm.
