Focus Raven 5.0 - Shimano XT

As one of Germany's top bicycle brands, Focus has built a strong reputation for designing high performance bicycles for many areas of cycling. Whether it is Road, Cyclocross, Cross Country, or All Mountain, Focus is a leader in innovation and design. Focus focuses on creating and developing outstanding bicycles with an incredible price-to-performance ratio.

The Raven line is a hardtail Cross Country line with an aim at performance. This lightweight line takes advantage of carbon fiber frames to yield high performance. These carbon fiber frames are designed and crafted to exact specifications to ensure quality throughout. The frames also take advantage of the BB30 over sized bottom bracket. In doing so the Raven line is able to increase stiffness and strength in that key area. Furthermore carbon fiber drop outs reduce weight while increasing the load bearing capacity. Carbon fiber drop outs also create a solid and stiff place for the rear wheel to live. The Raven carbon fiber frame is super light and strong.

Focus has set the Raven out on the right path with this high performance frame it only seems fitting that Focus would outfit it Shimano and Rock Shox components. This Race ready group is super light weight and performance driven, just like the Raven frame. Together they produce an awesome ride experience. Having reliability on Race day is a huge issue. Knowing you can count on your bike to do the job you need is critical. Shimano XT 10 Speed shifters set the pace of smooth and reliable shifting while the Shimano XT front and rear derailleurs add to the performance and reliability. The super light weight and stiff Shimano XT cranks are power houses when it comes to performance and design. The entire Shimano XT group was designed to provide you with the best experience possible. The Raven and this Shimano XT race group complement each other in way you can only understand by hoping on and riding for yourself.

The Raven line may be a hardtail line but suspension is still a must. Keeping up with the quality standards that the Raven has set, Focus set their aim on a suspension fork that would complement the rest of the build. A Rock Shox SiD Race was chosen. Rock Shox is an industry leader in shocks and suspension. Continuously setting new standards and introducing new technologies, Rock Shox was an instant choice for the Raven 5.0.

Feature rich and race ready are just a few words I can use to describe the Raven. If you’re looking for high performance and excellent quality then you have come to the right place. Focus has teamed up with industry leaders to bring you race ready and race proven performance.

      I sold a full suspension Cannondsle and found this bike at Jenson for a killer price. I just received it today and am tickled pink. It is all that I wanted in a bike and then some. I can't believe how buttery smooth the shifts are and how well tuned the bike was, out of the box. I am a big guy (6'2"' 230), and a pedal masher. There really seems to be no flex coming out of this setup. My road bike is probably one of the most rigid bikes ever produced, the Cannondale SystemSix with hologram SL cranks, and this bike seems very comparably stiff. I do not regret the decision to rock this bike, not for a second.

      This is a great bike. The price is unbeatable, it's so light that will improve your speed / average the first day (without doping), and the bike feels very strong and durable.
