Tales from the Pain Cave. Legends of the Hurt Locker. Romanticized anecdotes of suffering, glory, and heroism in the face of ruthless early winter elements. Sure, the hyperbolic one-upmanship of your buddies after they've ridden Saturday CX Worlds is unavoidable. But so is the allure of a late-season challenge, beer, waffles, and cowbells. Get your cowbell fix, and maybe even a trip through that pain cave of yore, aboard the Focus Mares CX 3.0. Whether you're just learning the ways of the mud, or making the jump from steel, the lightweight Focus carbon fiber frame keeps your ride easy to handle, and easier to carry. And with a burly Fulcrum Racing 7 CX wheelset, and nuke-proof Shimano 105 shifters and derailleurs, you'll be ready for weekend after weekend of steeplechasing, once you find your desire for suffering impossible to satiate.

  • Ergonomic, ovalized top tube keeps the bike evenly balanced and comfortable while shouldered on the run-up
  • Fulcrum Racing 7 CX wheels feature a sealed, double gasket in the bearings, primed for season after season of mud
  • Cross compact FSA Gossamer crankset and a wide range, 12-28-tooth cassette are optimized for punching through mud and accelerating out of off-camber corners

The Swiss Army knife of bikes!

    Hey if you are looking for the one bike that does it all this is it! What I love about this bike is that it uses the same frame as the Mares CX1 but with a budget friendly drive train. Now don't let that fool u because this bike can take it all, want to commute to work well this bikes super stable platform and responsive handling will allow you to weave past people and cars with ease and take a beating. This bike can then be raced over the weekend and be fast enough with a tough component group to put u on the podium. Love this bike!!
