The Focus Paralane2 9.8 road ebike is the top-of-the-range model in the Focus Paralane2 road ebike family. The lightest in the range, its carbon frame and forks offer a great ride and the Shimano Ultegra Di2 drivetrain and braking system with Focus' pioneering road boost standards is top notch. The Paralane2 ebike range combines the advantages and technology of a performance racing bike with some extra oomph when you want it courtesy of the sophisticated Fazua Evation mid-drive electric drive system.
The Focus Paralane2 road ebikes have been developed for those who love road riding and want the flexibility to do short fun rides, like the Brisbane river loop, to longer distance epics and rougher back roads. It is a superb road bike in its own right with a full carbon frame that keeps your ebike lightweight and agile and to adsorb road shock on the rougher roads.
The bike itself is equipped with top-end running gear for optimum performance and also benefits from Focus' innovative R.A.T thru-axle system. This adds stability, better shifting performance and durability. With the ability to put tyres on up to 35mm wide the Paralane2 becomes a versatile bike in terms of the terrain it can handle.
The Paralane2 9.8 ebike comes equipped with the impressive electronic Shimano Ultegra Di2 drivetrain. This is a slick, hard wearing shift system favoured by those who want close to top-of-the-range shifting performance. Focus have paired this with the Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes which offer excellent braking performance in both wet and dry.
Focus Paralance2 ebikes are powered by the Fazua Evation mid-drive system, the lightest and most compact on the market. This is a mid-drive system that offers up to 60Nm torque and Focus have developed their carbon frames to completely integrate the battery, while allowing the motor and battery 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.
