Sam's long awaited "Focus" frame is now available to buy with a few improvements from the prototypes, myself and Sam have been testing for two years now. A lot of time, attention to detail went into the design of this frame, yes a lil' heavier than the norm, but lot stronger to!
Zion introduces the Sam Foakes signature frame, the Focus. Strong enough to withstand pro level riding for ages. There is also one great innovation that on Focus frame that you haven't seen on any other flatland frame before: Taper Lock dropouts. Taper Lock is a patented design of dropouts made by a Taiwanese rider that completely solves the problem of chain tension in a most simple way, without the use of chain tensioners.
