As one of Germany's top bicycle brands, Focus has built a strong reputation for designing high performance bicycles. Whether it is Road, Cyclocross, Cross Country, or All Mountain, Focus is a leader in innovation and design, offering outstanding bicycles with an incredible price-to-performance ratio.
The Black Forest is a hardtail XC 29er line with a focus on performance. This lightweight bike finds its foundation on sturdy alloy frame construction, yielding high performance results. Meticulously designed and constructed, the Black Forest doesn't skip a beat on the trail and keeps you cranking mile after mile.
Complementing the Black Forest frame is the 4.1 level build kit—a mix of reliable components from Shimano and Tektro. The 3x9 drivetrain is made up of Shimano Acera shifters, Shimano SLX rear derailleur, and a Shimano Acera front derailleur that keeps shifting smooth and efficient as a Shimano FC-M381 crank delivers power with every pedal stroke. Tektro HD-330 hydraulic brakes give the the power to stop on a dime and a Rock Shox XC28 fork provides 100mm of travel to tame those more challenging sections of the trail. A Focus branded Concept cockpit, rounds out the Black Forest 4.1 build, for a ride that is ready to perform, yet cost effective.
