Focus launches Paralane2 sub-13kg e-bike

Motor and battery can be removed; bike uses a new road boost axle standard

At Sea Otter Europe in Girona, Focus has announced its new Paralane2 e-road bike, with a headline weight under 13kg. With an integrated motor and a 250Wh battery tucked away in the down tube, it says that the new bike will push you along with up to 400 watts of extra power and 60Nm of torque.

Focus says that its motor adds no resistance once you’re riding at speeds above its threshold, so that the Paralane2 rides like a normal, if slightly heavier, road bike.
