At a glance

The 2017 Focus Mares Rival 1 is an Cyclocross carbon road bike. It is priced at $3,000 USD and a sram drivetrain. The bike is part of Focus's Mares Rival 1 range of road bikes.

Focus’ Mares Rival 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 and fork offer precise handling through rough off-camber corners with minimal weight. With the light Alex Rims CXD wheelset wrapped in Schwalbe tires, you’ll find yourself cleaning muddy, wet corners faster than ever before. SRAM’s Rival 1 drivetrain shifts smoothly in even nasty conditions and gives you the right gear for whatever the course throws at you. Hydraulic disc brakes offer nuanced modulation in mucky conditions, as you set up for the corners, and as you roll up to the podium.

Concept carbon components along with a Fizik saddle and handlebar round out this killer build for a furiously fast, mud-loving rig.
