All-New Focus Izalco Max

The all-new IZALCO MAX builds on the success of its predecessor, which itself set a new standard for light weight disc brake bikes, and simply makes it faster.  But it’s more than just fast – the new IZALCO MAX perfectly balances aerodynamics, low weight, stiffness and sheer elegance to deliver a truly exciting all-round riding experience.

Optimised in the wind tunnel, the Izalco Max  is over 1:30 minutes faster at 200 watts over 50km than the previous model with same wheels, components, position and test rider.  Focus’s engineers completely redesigned every tube and improved these in several stages within the wind tunnel. Every surface was scrutinised in order to achieve the best possible mix of aerodynamics and low weight. The result is a combination of Kamm tail profiles, cleverly hidden cables and well-balanced proportions. On paper, this combination results in a 6 per cent improvement in aerodynamic resistance, allowing you to go faster and save a lot of energy during every ride, no matter how fast you go.

Details

Throughout the entire frameset Focus have applied engineering design that German companies are famed for.

For instance, we have yet to see a more practical and elegant 100% internal cable routing design than in the Izalco Max 9-series.  All the cables run inside the specially developed aero stem. The carbon fibre stem has a -15° negative design in order to compensate for the slightly raised position as a result of the internal cable routing and hidden maintenance port. This allows Focus to guarantee you a perfect riding experience whilst also offering optimum aerodynamics. The benefits are both practical and visually pleasing – this is one slick solution that also allows full handlebar choice.

“we had a blast with the IZALCO MAX 2019. Fun, authentic, honest and innovative – we like the new FOCUS racer a lot!” Gran Fondo Cycling Magazine

The proven geometry of the IZALCO MAX, which has claimed many Tour de France stage victories, has been slightly updated to the current everyday demands of road cyclists, combining aerodynamics with beautiful handling and longer distance comfort – a lower bottom bracket adds high speed stability, while longer stays and fork blades allow for up to 28mm tyres.  The geometry of the sizes XXL and XXS has been specially adapted to the needs of cyclists big and small.

With MAX Carbon Technology and the cable integration, the Izalco Max is laying the foundations for the best mix of aerodynamics and low weight. The streamlined, aerodynamic tubes complete the wonderfully balanced, clean and sleek design.

FOCUS IZALCO MAX HIGHLIGHTS

MAX CARBON TECHNOLOGY

MAX Carbon Technology pushes the boundaries of lightweight construction: Focus use highly rigid high modulus carbon fibres in a fibre-based design to optimise the weight-to-stiffness ratio which, when coupled with their high-pressure moulding process, achieves maximum strength and withstands test procedures significantly above the standard. This has enabled Focus to construct the world’s lightest disc brake frame.

The new IZALCO MAX combines aerodynamics with the known qualities of its predecessor. For the best stiffness-to-weight-ratio the Izalco Max uses a substantial amount of ultra-high and high modulus fibers (60T and 40T). These fibres can handle heavy forces without stretching.  They are placed where maximum stiffness is a priority – mainly around the head tube and the bottom bracket to transfer your power directly into speed. In other areas fibres with different characteristics are used to deliver the best riding experience.  For example, in every area where comfort is important (especially the rear triangle) Focus take advantage of fibres with the ability to stretch for a certain degree while maintaining strength.

RAPID AXLE TECHNOLOGY (R.A.T.)

R.A.T. stands for Rapid Axle Technology and is the world’s fastest floating axle. This is the first thru-axle system to combine the stability, alignment and lateral stiffness of a floating axle with extremely fast wheel changes. The simplicity and speed of the patented R.A.T. system exceeds that of even conventional quick-release devices.

The IZALCO MAX is disc brake only. Front and rear brake rotors measuring 160 mm ensure safe and totally reliable braking performance – vital for a road bike as fast as the IZALCO MAX.

AERODYNAMIC AND COMFORTABLE

In the past, having an aerodynamic shape resulted in less comfort. With the IZALCO MAX this contradiction becomes obsolete. The aerodynamic carbon seatpost has a D profile with 15 mm offset – thus offering the perfect mix of ergonomics and comfort.

In order to maintain the optimum sitting position,the seat tube has been pushed forwards so that the effective offset is only 2 mm. This means that you can enjoy the comfort of a seatpost with 15 mm offset, without having to forgo a modern racing position. Titanium screws reduce the weight.

ADAPTABLE AND EASY TO TRANSPORT

The IZALCO MAX comes with a standard handlebar thus allowing for as many adjustment options as possible. You can adjust the height of the handlebar with ease using a two-piece special spacer.

The integration of the cables from the stem to the handlebar seamlessly continues internally. This handlebar stem unit can be easily removed in order to stow the bike safely in a bike case – for when you are en route to a race, holiday or training camp. You can attach a bike computer using an adapter.

STABLE STIFFNESS PER SIZE (S.S.P.S.)

In order to ensure that all bike sizes offer the same ride characteristics, all available frame heights are individually designed and feature a specially developed carbon lay-up.

This Stable Stiffness Per Size (SSPS) production method ensures that all sizes provide the perfect weight-to-stiffness ratio.
