The Mares AX lineup is the epitome of trickle-down greatness. Featuring all most of the technology (Rapid Axle Thru Axles, disc brakes, tapered head tube, flattened top tube, etc) featured in the carbon version, the aluminum frames bring a better price point and a slightly tougher bike. Also worth noting is the improved rider-serviceability of the AX lineup with a threaded bottom bracket replacing the BB-30 found on the CX lineup.

The Mares AX 2.0 features the budget conscious but performance packed Shimano 105 groupset complete with TRP HY-RD brakes. Focus Concept contact points and wheels round out this fast and wallet friendly ride.
