Focus Paralane

Built for comfort, versatility, and performance, the new Paralane is Focus’ entry into the ever-growing endurance/gravel road bike category. The Paralane’s disc-brake compatible carbon fiber frameset is constructed with endurance geometry featuring a taller headtube and lower bottom bracket. Also designed for unpaved exploring, the Paralane offers enough clearance for 35mm tires and comes stock with its own set of easy-to-install fenders for wet, muddy roads. And somehow, Focus has managed to combine all of these benefits in a package that’s still light enough to keep a racer happy: a 54cm frameset comes in at a svelte 907grams, making the Paralane one of the lightest framesets in its category. Five models are offered, starting at $2,500. [From $2,500; focus-bikes.com
