Focus Atlas 6.8 Gravel Bike - Mineral Blue / Blue
Our new gravel bike ATLAS pushes boundaries. Up to 47 mm tyre clearance and all mounting options for bikepacking adventures are making the ATLAS the missing piece in our portfolio between the endurance road bike PARALANE and the cyclocross racer MARES.
- endurance geometry
- lightweight and robust aluminium frame & full-carbon fork
- short chainstays 425 mm, short stem
- large tyre clearance
- Shimano GRX groupset for stable and dependable shifting on any terrain
The ATLAS comes with an aluminium frame and a carbon fork. Therefore it becomes very sturdy and is suitable for every purpose.
It is the favourite ATLAS part of engineer Ignacio: the smart yoke. This small part makes a nice routing of all cables possible at the rear and provides a lot of space for the tyres.
|FENDERS AND RACK|
With its mounting points, the frame can fit our own designed fenders* and rack perfectly. All bikes have these mounting points and some stock bikes have them already equipped.
*The fender (AM140121004) and the carrier (AM130120022) can only be fitted in combination and not separate from each other. The fender is only approved for max. 40 mm wide tyres (40c).
To mount an 18 mm kickstand we offer a kickstand mount which offers the required mounting option.
FOCUS ATLAS 6.8 FEATURES
- LIGHTWEIGHT AND ROBUST ALUMINIUM FRAME & CARBON FORK WITH INTEGRATED C.I.S. CABLE ROUTING AND TOP TUBE BAG, PLUS MOUNTING POINTS FOR EVERYTHING YOU NEED

COMFORT AND CONTROL ON ANY TERRAIN
Whether bad weather, demanding surface, steep climbs or long distances – the robust and comfortable gravel bike offers full control thanks to an adapted frame geometry, wide handlebars with flare and disc brakes. The clean cockpit with C.I.S. cable routing from the handlebar directly into the headset avoids any hustle when installing a handlebar bag. To climb every mountain even with equipment, the Shimano GRX gravel groupset comes with a pleasant transmission ratio for everyone.
HUGE TYRE CLEARANCE
The ATLAS comes with 700c tyres and can take tyre widths up to 47 mm, but is also 650b-ready with tyre clearance up to 51 mm. Therefore, you have plenty of opportunities to spec your ATLAS appropriate to your next adventure. Furthermore, the Road Boost technology provides high stability due to better spoke tension and bigger tyre clearance while still having short chainstays. No matter the objective, the ATLAS fully supports your ride – even to the end of the world.
VARIOUS OPTIONS TO MOUNT EQUIPMENT
Five bottle cages can be mounted: On the seat tube, above the down tube, underneath the down tube and on each side of the fork. The position of the bottle cage above the down tube is adjustable to fit a frame bag. Additionally, it is possible to equip the ATLAS with various features thanks to many mounting options on the aluminium frame and carbon fork. The mounting points on the fork are approved for 3 kg each side and can also be used for carrying any other equipment. With every ATLAS 6.8, a top tube bag is included. It can store all your necessities that you need during the ride.
