Focus Izalco Race 9.8 Ultegra Road Bike
The Focus Izalco Race 9.8 Ultegra Road Bike is a great value offering that's ideal for riders looking to start racing, or simply wanting a bike for fast group rides and sportives. The Izalco pairs a full carbon frame and fork, and has a wide bottom bracket that gives it a stiff and responsive feel, while the narrow seatstays bring some compliance and comfort to the ride. The geometry is racy, but not overly aggressive, so you'll still be comfortable after three or four hours in the saddle.
A full Ultegra 11-speed groupset complements the bike perfectly. It's only a step down from Shimano's flagship mechanical Dura-Ace, and compromises very little in weight. Shifting is reliable and smooth, and there are plenty of gears to choose from, thanks to a mid-compact chainset and wide 11-30 cassette, so climbs will feel less arduous and you won't feel restricted on long, fast descents. All cables are routed internally, not only keeping the aesthetics sleek and clean, but also reducing the chances of contamination.
The bike rolls on high quality DT Swiss P1850 SPLINEs, shallow wheels that are light, stiff and stable - a great all-rounder.
- Lightweight carbon frame and fork
- Integrated cable routing
- Shimano Ultegra R8000 drivetrain
- DT Swiss P1850 SPLINE 23 wheels
