Like David Hasselhoff, Focus bikes are huge in Germany. Unlike the Hoff, however, they're poised to make a splash stateside. And for good reason: The Cayo Evo 2.0 packs race-winning specs – an Ultegra Di2 drivetrain, Fulcrum wheels, and 3T Ergonova Pro handlebars – aboard an elegant carbon frame that won't eviscerate your savings account. But the real surprise won't come until you saddle up: Lithe and nimble, the Cayo manages to be amazingly stiff yet incredibly comfortable. [$4,300; focus-bikes.com]
