Light and agile, but with an extra push. Electric Road Bikes are one of the most talked about products on the market right now. With E-Bikes becoming more and more popular every year it was only a matter of time before the road bike was developed as well. The technology has progressed as well, with carbon fibre frames that can house the batteries and conceal the motors so without a proper good look, you wouldn't be able to tell that the bike you're looking at is electric.
The Focus Paralane is one of the bikes that is at the top of the list when Electric Road Bikes are mentioned. The new and unique FAZUA Motor & the removable motor/battery are only noticeable when it makes the ride easier.
This sub 13kg e-bike is a game changer. We are sure of it. Feel free to come in and try one for yourself if you don't believe us!
System integration and lightweight design are key features of F.I.T. carbon. High-strength fibres are layered in such a way that they offer stability, stiffness and minimum weight, all neatly packaged in an unusual and unique frame design.
This has enabled us to incorporate the battery and motor in an ultra-lightweight carbon frame, making the Paralane feel like a normal road bike when you're not using the assistance. The intelligent solution for Focus's pioneering E-bikes!
Disc brakes are both the present and future in cycling - since the UCI just legalised them for road racing, we're expecting them to be the next big thing and there are certain manufacturers that are doing disc only versions of their bikes.
The main advantage of disc brakes is the extra stopping power. Howevere because of this there is more force going through the axles, so they need to be stiff and strong. Because no floating axle on the market met the demands that Focus place on a thru-axle system, our FOCUS engineers developed the Rapid Axle Technology (R.A.T.) - the fastest thru-axle in the world.
As a result, Rapid Axle Technology combines the stability and stiffness of a thru-axle and all the advantages of a quick-release. As the quickest and easiest wheel change system on the market, it puts even classic quick-release devices in the shade. Thanks to its outstanding features, even renowned competitors now rely on the R.A.T. thru-axle system for their disc models.
The XC World Cup in Albstadt in 2016 demonstrated just how successful Focus's research and development was, the FOCUS XC team mechanic Fabian Haug changed the rear wheel of Florian Vogel's RAVEN in 13.3 seconds - an unofficial world record! The wheel change took a whole five seconds off the reigning record. The simple operation of the R.A.T. thru-axle enables an intuitive wheel change, even in stressful situations - such as bike racing.
The FAZUA Motor has 4 Modes, 3 of which give you different levels of assitance which effect how the battery and motor assist you, and also how long the battery lasts. Think of it like how you drive your car. If you drive it economically you will get more miles out of a tank. Same goes with these, if you use less power, you will get more miles...
