Focus Cayo Overview 2016

Following on from the hugely successful Cayo Evo, Focus launched its all-new Cayo in 2015 to great acclaim. With a frame weight reducing from an average 950 grams to 850 grams and improvements in both torsional rigidity and comfort, the Cayo is a real superbike. As before, full carbon fork and full carbon steerer, UCI approved, as exactly used in this year's Paris Roubaix. Yes, exactly the same frame as on this year's Paris Roubaix on a £1299 bike; the Cayo was used at the Paris Roubaix, rather than the regular Izalco Max, courtesy of the Cayo's ability to take a 28mm tyre.

Cayo Tiagra

All-new Tiagra 4700 groupset for 2016, little to tell it apart from the 5800 105 groupset save for it remaining 10 speed (compared to the 11 speed 105). The Cayo Tiagra comes with a Concept OE wheelset, very durable if a little heavy. Easily upgradeable, please see our Custom Programme section below.

Cayo 105

A rollover from 2015 but with a second (vibrant!) colour option.

Cayo Ultegra Mix

Essentially unchanged from 2015 but £100 cheaper.

Cayo Ultegra

One of the highlights of the range, a higher spec than 2015, visually stunning and a £100 price reduction. Fizik saddle, stealth Fulcrum rim, visual makeover. A genuine 7.6kg in size Medium. See Custom Programme below.

Cayo Team Replica Force

In the distinctive AG2R colours, full SRAM (Force 22) groupset as standard; swap out the standard Fulcrum's for some Zipp wheels and you have a team bike.

Cayo Ultegra Di2

Essentially unchanged. Shimano's 6800-Di2 now in its third year and proving very reliable.

Cayo disc

Cayo Disc 105

Trickle-down technology from last year's new Ultegra hydraulic disc system, contributing to a £500 price difference. Other differences include an OE wheelset, rather than the DT Swiss R24 Spline.

Cayo Disc Rival

Essentially unchanged.

Cayo Ultegra Disc

Essentially unchanged.

Womens specific

Barely-perceptible difference to the above in geometry. Otherwise, same prices and same specs.Three Cayo Donna bikes this year: Cayo Donna Tiagra, Cayo Disc Donna 105 and Cayo Disc Donna Ultegra.

Check out the review in January 2015 Cycling Plus magazine. Here's some of their comments:

The Cayo is a hell of a lot of bike for your money. If you’re desperate to shed weight, there’s a fair saving to be made in the wheels, but it’s nice enough in its stock form that we wouldn’t bother.

VERDICT The Cayo is an absolute joy to ride and fantastic value for money

WE SAY…

HIGHS An incredibly pleasing frame for the money that’s stiff yet comfortable, with great shifting from 105 and clearance for 28mm tyres.

LOWS No mudguard mounts despite ample clearance, and the wheels are quite heavy

BUY IF…

You want a quality frame that’s specced for maximum value.
