Not all of us have the budget to splurge on a 5-figure road bike with fancy electronic shifting and hydraulic disc brakes. Sure, there are plenty of bikes on the market that fulfil that requirement, but what about the rest of us? What about the people just getting into road cycling, or the ones who are looking for a new value-oriented bike that’s got all the features they need, without the pizazz and expense of carbon fibre? For the vast majority of riders who aren’t necessarily racing at an A-grade level, a well-built alloy road bike is an ideal partner for developing your fitness and your riding skills. And something with a slightly relaxed riding position that’ll deliver more comfort as your riding distances get longer and longer is even better. Enter the Focus Cayo AL.

Based upon the highly successful and much lauded Cayo, the Cayo AL employs the same award-winning geometry and frame design, but with a hydroformed alloy tube set that helps to bring the price down to a much more attainable level. The comfortable riding position is the same as the carbon Cayo, offering the rider a more upright posture thanks to a taller head tube and a shorter top tube length that eases strain on your neck and shoulders. Like its more expensive siblings, the Cayo AL uses a large profile tapered head tube along with internal cable routing for a clean and stealthy look. Carefully butted and shaped tubing helps to decrease weight where it’s not needed, while increasing the alloy tubes ability to soak up road vibrations. Combined with the 25c tyres, the Cayo AL is designed to surprise with its refined feel on the open road.

For those wanting the best bang for their buck, the Cayo AL Sora is the entry point into the Cayo range, with a smooth-shifting Shimano groupset and powerful Shimano rim brakes.
