The Focus Paralane2 6.6 Commute is a stylish and lightweight flatbar commuter e-bike based on the award-winning Paralane2 road ebike platform. It is powered by the highly acclaimed Fazua Evation mid-drive system - the smallest and lightest mid-drive on the market - and has the impressive Shimano 105 groupset and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and a carbon fork. At only 16kg this is a fun, agile bike for keeping up with the fasties or for your daily commute.
Endless riding fun. The Focus Paralane2 6.6 Commute ebike combines the advantages of a road racing bike with those of an e-bike. It is light and agile but with an extra push when you need it. It is based on Focus' highly acclaimed Paralane2 platform, which won a 2018 Design and Innovation Award and features the innovative R.A.T thru-axle system that adds stability, better shifting performance and durability. Shimano 105 gearing gives you precise, high performing gear shifting and riding downhill at fast speeds or in the wet will be no problems with the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes.
The Focus road electric bike philosophy is about support when you need it and Focus Paralane2 ebikes are powered by the compact and light Fazua Evation drive system. This is a mid-drive system that offers up to 60Nm torque and Focus have developed their frames to completely integrate the battery, while allowing it to be easily removed if required. Power control is provided via a bluetooth-ready Fazua remote that is mounted near your grips and offers three level of power - breeze, river and rocket, plus the option to ride with power off.
The battery is 250Wh and there is much debate about how much range this provides! The philosophy behind the Paralane2 development is to provide support at the right moment and the bike itself has been developed so it is lightweight and easy to ride without power. This means that the range you will get from your battery is totally dependent on the terrain and riding conditions and the amount of support that you need. Various reviews and tests have clocked the battery range from 70km for a very hilly, windy ride to up to 1,000km for easy, flat long distance riding.
