Focus Raven 5.0 29" Bike 2013

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 SLX 10 Speed shifters set the pace of smooth and reliable shifting while the Shimano SLX front and rear derailleurs add to the performance and reliability. The light weight and stiff FSA Comet Focus cranks are power houses when it comes to performance and design. The entire Shimano SLX group was designed to provide you with the best experience possible. The Raven and this Shimano SLX group complement each other in ways 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 Reba RL 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.

    Comments about Focus Raven 5.0 29" Bike 2013:

    I love when people rate this bike with 1 or 2 stars, but don't write down cons, or why they don't like it. One reviwer did say poor assembly, what does that have to do with the bike quality ???

    First thing when it comes to these bikes you have to check them before every ride, and tune it to your riding style, this means if you are going to do crazy riding you should learn how to be your own mechanic, understand parts, and how they work.

    I bought this bike and love it, crashed few times ok more like 10, and I don't have one scratch on the frame yet, handle bars got little scratched, same thing with brake handles, but everything else is mint, derailler etc.

    If this bike comes with cheap plastic pedals, buy flat pedals like shimano flat saint pedals, they are really good. Cheap plastic pedals will crack when you jump the bike.

    Another thing, get protective gear pro or amateur, because everyone crashes. Yes it costs money but don't cheap out, get shin pads, elbow pads, full face helmet etc...

    Better to damage protective gear than get hurt yourself...

      Comments about Focus Raven 5.0 29" Bike 2013:

      I really love this bike! It is a great value for a carbon fiber hardtail. It weights fairly light, but personally I would save up some money for some upgrades. It rolls uphill with ease and very nimble going downhill. I love it!!
