This is the 2011 version of the Focus Izalco Team with a lot of customization. The same frame with a different color scheme had been rode by Team Katusha at the Grand Tours.
Along with the all internal cabled frame, the matched frame color 3T Funda Team fork were used. This bike was stocked with the Sram Red shifting & braking system to provide the impulsive shifting experience. Rotor 3D+ running on BB30 along with the 53/39 Rotor Q-rings were there to provide a better pedaling efficiency.
The aero Zipp 101 aluminum clincher wheels were mounted on the bike. 3T products including a full carbon ARX Ltd stem, Dorico setback seatpost and Ergosum Ltd dropbar were used on the bike. The Look Keo Blade were also used.
The bike was not measure digitally, but it should be around 7.2Kg.
Having had almost 200Km on the bike, the initial feeling are very solid. The frame was stiff enough to give my heavy body (80Kg) support when climbing up around Selarang. Climbing out of the saddle to dance around with the pedals were particular fun with the Rotor Q-rings. Not sure if it is my circular pedaling motion not being fine enough or else, but the Rotor Q-rings are a real deal here to improve the efficiency.
As a side note, I had to change the stem into the Ritchey’s and pedals into the speedplay to provide a better fit for the riding experience.
