At a glance

The 2017 Focus Mares Force 1 is an Cyclocross carbon mountain bike. It is priced at $4,300 USD and a sram drivetrain. The bike is part of Focus's Mares Force 1 range of mountain bikes.

Focus’ Mares Force 1 is like a bloodhound when it comes to sniffing out the top spot on the podium, though you’ll find it moves more like a cheetah. The Mares carbon frame is paired with a carbon fork for precise handling through rough off-camber corners. The DT Swiss R23 Spline wheelset ensures quick, responsive acceleration, while Schwalbe tires clean up on wet, muddy, grass-filled courses. SRAM’s rugged, efficient Force 1 x 11-speed drivetrain shifts crisply—regardless of conditions—and gives you the right gear for whatever the course throws at you. Plus, SRAM Force 1 hydraulic disc brakes provide nuanced control in mucky conditions.

For added durability and low weight, a Concept EX aluminum handlebar, along with a lightweight CPX carbon stem and seatpost, and a Fizik Antares saddle round out this killer build to give you a fast, mud-loving cyclocross rig.
