Focus Atlas Alloy Gravel Bike Looks Equally Affordable and Well-Equipped for Adventure

The new Focus Atlas gravel bike features an aluminum frame and an affordable price tag.

The new Atlas gravel bikes from Focus come in X-small through XX-large sizes, and the alloy frame is covered in accessory mounts for any adventure that riders dream of. Given the bike’s build spec, dropper post compatibility, and bag-mounts, the Atlas is clearly intended as an exploration partner more than a dirt-road racer.

Geometry measurements across the size run were clearly drawn around drop bars, with a 54.4mm top tube and 382mm reach on the size medium frames. The boost frames and carbon forks come with 700c (29″) wheels and 45mm-wide tires, though it is possible to mount up 27.5″ hoops. With the stock configuration, the frame has a 75mm BB drop, a 70.5° head tube angle, with a 73.5° seat tube angle on all but the extra-small that has a 74° angle. The chain stays on all frames are 425mm, keeping the overall wheelbase between 1015 and 1092mm across the size run.

Gear mounts on the top tube, seat stays, fork legs, and several other convenient spots.

The second least expensive Atlas 6.7 EQP model is built up with an eye toward urban commuting, with fenders, a rear rack, and a kickstand installed to accompany the carbon fork and alloy frame for €2,099, while that same bike sells for €1,899 without the commuter components. The Atlas 6.8, one model up the line has a Shimano GRX 600 2x gruppo and disc brake set selling for €2,300, and the top Atlas 6.9 model gets a GRX 600 1x drivetrain and a lighter wheelset that all retails for €3,699.
