Expirience with the Focus WHISTLER 3.9

Focus WHISTLER 3.9 Review Aabove all, the Focus Hardtail just feels great. The handling of this bike remains balanced thanks to a moderate geometry. The upright seating position gives the Focus Hardtail a comfortable character. On the downhill, however, the Focus WHISTLER 3.9 is left in the dust by its competitors. With 13,7 kg, the Focus Hardtail tends to be one of the heavier bikes on the market. With the shifting components, Focus fulfills not only the current standard, but even puts the icing on the cake with its extremely high-quality components. With 6 years warranty, nothing stands in the way of a long-term relationship.
