Cross-Country race courses are becoming tougher and tougher from year to year. This means riders have to adapt to these new demands. Same applies to the material. The riders need a full suspension bike that is super light, stiff, efficient and fast. Together with the FOCUS XC Team, our engineers in Stuttgart (Germany) developed an all-new race bike based on our patented kinematics F.O.L.D. (FOCUS OPTIMIZED LINKAGE DESIGN).
After being involved in the whole development process over the last two years, Florian Vogel first raced the prototype of the all-new FOCUS O1E at the World Championships 2015 in Andorra. In 2016 the FOCUS O1E is ready for the world's most demanding courses. As a proof, Flo finished 6th at the 2016 UCI Mountainbike World Cup in Lenzerheide (Switzerland). Despite the fact of having a pure race DNA, Flo really likes to ride the FOCUS O1E for fun on his hometrails.
FULLY FOCUSED is a five-part mini series following world-class rider Florian Vogel throughout the 2016 season. Up-close and personal, the cameras are there to capture the trials, trails and tribulations of the European Cross-Country Champion and World Cup winner, as well as fly-on-the-wall access to his family and the FOCUS XC Team, seeing the roles they play in his life as an elite athlete. With the Olympics, World Championships and World Cup all on the agenda, 2016 isn’t going to be a quiet year. We’ll see his focused approach to training, the techniques he’s honed over the years and what really takes pride of place in Florian Vogel’s life. Training, technique and titles: Florian Vogel leaves nothing to chance and 2016 is set to be a memorable year. #fullyfocused.
