Mike Kluge's record of success in all areas of racing is impressive: He is multiple German Champion and World Champion in cyclocross, overall World Cup winner in mountain biking and was a very successful road rider. After his active career, Mike Kluge continued on the road to success as a trainer, helping Hanka Kupfernagel win the world championship three times, among other things.

"For me it is simply a matter close to my heart to represent "my" brand FOCUS", explains Kluge. “Focus has evolved incredibly as a brand over the past few years. The launch of the new Izalco Max racing machine alone proves the innovative top products with which Focus is on its way to the top of the world. This is exactly the development I always envisioned when I founded the brand!”
