Description of FOCUS SPINE C LITE 27 Mountainbike - 2017 - black/fluogreen matt
For epic transalp journeys or even speedy after work sessions - Spine terrain! This new carbon trail bike from Cloppenburg (GER) comes with a sports geometry with compact rear triangle and an effective 120 mm landing gear. Uphill it scores with a relatively steep seat angle and a supple rear - endless efficiency and grip! With short chainstays and a central seating position it's absolutely playful and greedy for technical passages. A not too short wheelbase and 68° steering angle bring smoothness and safety in high-speed descents. The 27.5" wheels bring similar advantages as the Twentyniners, without those weight/acceleration disadvantage.
The elaborately designed carbon frame comes with a nicely absorbing, linkage driven single pivot rear suspension with 12x142 mm X12 thru axle. With the Focus "Stiffness per Size" technology every frame size gets a different carbon layup for same performance to weight ratio. The clean appearance is achieved with internal cable routing, which extends the lifespan of the shifting cables significantly. A tapered head tube increases steering head stiffness, which leads to improved handling in extreme situations and at maximum downhill speed.
The short chainstays, a long top tube and short stem make for incredible agility of the bike. The slack head angle provides control and smooth operation in harsh riding situations.
The Focus Spine C is equipped with Shimano SLX and XT 2x11-speed components for smooth shifting performance. Proven, hydraulic Shimano deore disc brakes allow great braking power on the trail while the RockShox Reba RL / Monarch RT suspension provides unlimited fun with its 120 mm of travel. The wide handlebar provides maximum riding performance as does the solid Concept EX wheelset with 27 mm wide rims. Continental Mountain-King provides a guarantee that acceleration transfer directly to the trail.
