2021 Focus Izalco Max 9.7 Force eTap AXS 12-Speed Road Bike

To achieve the best possible mix of aerodynamics and low weight, we redesigned every tube and improved these in several stages within the wind tunnel. The result is a combination of Kamm tail profiles, hidden cables and well-balanced proportions. Thanks to highly rigid Ultra High Modulus carbon fibres, our Focus Izalco Max 9.7 frame only weighs 890 g and the aero fork 360g.

All the cables run inside the specially developed C.I.S. aero stem: from aero handlebar through stem and headset into the frame. This guarantees you perfect functionality while having optimum aerodynamics and a clean cockpit. We offer the stem in five lengths, ranging from 80 to 120 mm. The Universal Computer Mount that makes sure you can mount your bike computer on the aero stem is included with every Focus Izalco Max. You can adjust the height of the handlebar with ease using a two-piece special spacer.

Our aerodynamic carbon seat post has a D profile with 15 mm offset - thus offering the perfect mix of ergonomics and comfort. To maintain the optimum sitting position, we have pushed the seat tube forwards so that the effective offset is only 2 mm. This means that you can enjoy the comfort of a seat post with 15 mm offset, without having to forgo a modern racing sitting position. Additionally, 28 mm tyre clearance makes sure, you can ride your Focus Izalco Max on a broad range of rides

12 Speed

This is an amazing looking bike and a brand that you don’t see too much of in the UK. However I’m not really sure about the limitations of going 12 speed. Please can you explain Focus’ thinking behind that?

It’s pretty hilly in these parts and I’m a bit concerned about the ratios at the lower end.

Thank you,


Hi Ian, the bike has 24 gears. (12 speed rear cassette) TBL.
