hey everyone,

i have long been tempted by the Focus Izalco Max and it's feathery nature. but, i can't help but wonder if it will be updated soon. the current chassis has been around since 2014, correct? and it is the same for 2018. that would make 5 seasons, which seems long to me....

does anyone have info i don't have? has the frame really been unchanged since 2014?

thanks!

I don"t think
Rumors say derby cycles will no produce focus road bike in the future
They will produce cx mtb frame for focus but no more road

others brands from derby cycles ; cervelo for exemple , will be used for that

I may be wrong

source? cant hardly believe that. focus put much effort in developing the izalco max, extremely upgraded the cayo, and just brought the paralane on the market, which is an expensive bike as well. further they are working on an e-racebike.
what i read, but absolutely unceratin source, is, that they want to replace rim-brake bikes completely by disc-brake bikes. but this propaply affects all bike manufacturers sooner or later.
the izalco max imo is one of those bikes which is difficult to upgrade. weight is already extremely low, and its design is very classical, clear and simple, without embellishment and "fantasy" forms. if there will be an upgrade, propaply a very light one, like cd did on the evo.

No way. Cervelo hits a totally different brand identity and price for spec than Focus. Neither one can replace the other. And as mentioned above, Focus have a brand new aero road bike coming out next year.
