For all things quality, the Focus Paralene2 champions a place among the best electric road bikes, for its lightweight carbon frame that\u2019s designed to reduce fatigue. You\u2019ll need as much energy as possible considering the battery can reach 1000km on a single charge. Also, the Shimano brakes are superb in wet conditions.\r\nWhy We Like It - Focus Paralane2\r\nWith a flexible tube cross-sections and great terrain absorption, the Focus Paralane2 offers some of the best comfortability when on the road, reducing overall fatigue.\r\n\r\nDurability & Build Quality\r\nThrough carbon technology, the Focus Paralane2 is one of the lightest e road bikes around, weighing in at just 28 lbs. It\u2019s flexible, yet durable and comfortable, absorbing the bumps and dings during your riding experience. BBB Deluxe handlebars have a 125mm drop and 70mm reach, with a stem of the same nature, but 31.8mm. To complement the wheels, Focus incorporated a DT Swiss RR521 SPLINE DB, 32mm height, with Swiss 370 boost hub.\r\nPerformance (Speed & Acceleration)\r\nWhile the Focus Paralene2 is capable of reaching 20mph, the electric motor won\u2019t be of any assistance. Once the rear hub realizes you\u2019ve his 20mph, it will cut off and leave the pedaling to you. The Fazua motor offers extra power with Fazua Evation, adding slight road boost where needed. The Specialized Turbo Creo SL can max out at 28mph.\r\nRange & Battery\r\nNear the bottom bracket is the battery pack. The range it can travel isn\u2019t so cut and dry. Depending on your weight and environment, it can last up to 1000km, but results may vary. The battery is removable, which can reduce extra weight for a lighter ride.\r\nSafety Features\r\nWhile the Focus Paralane2 is naturally safer than cheap, typical e bikes, it isn\u2019t offering anything more than what you see. It doesn\u2019t have fenders, nor lights. What it does have are amazing Shimano Ultegra R8020 hydraulic disc brakes, which are great road disc brakes to have when it\u2019s raining. If accessories are necessary, the Trek Domane+ is open to customization.\r\nValue\r\nAs excellent as the performance can be under the hood of the Focus Paralene2 road bikes, dropping $8300 is asking for a lot, to be frank. This is especially true considering it doesn\u2019t offer substantial safety features, other than excellent brakes and comfortable design. On a budget, we\u2019d pick up the Orbea Gain eBike.\r\nFocus Paralane2 Wrap Up\r\nThe Focus Paralene2 uses a staggering number of forward-thinking technology to improve control, speed, and performance overall. It\u2019s lightweight, yet strong and flexible. With such a design, fatigue is reduced and you ride longer. More importantly, you\u2019ll always trust your brakes, even in rain. If you commute, keep the battery on you.
