Item Description

If Edgar Allen Poe’s dour avian interlocutor was ever to be reincarnated as a mountain bike, the Focus Raven would be the logical choice. This exotic-looking, German-built carbon hardtail is a XC racer’s fantasy. It’s feather-light, accelerates like a demon, and handles like a dream. Selected by Germany’s Mountain Bike Magazine as a best-in-class off-road racing machine, and winner of the Eurobike Gold Award, the Raven is the last word in high-end, high-performance hardtails. This unique dreambikes edition sports a Rock Shox SID XX fork, custom crankbrothers cobalt wheels, cobalt 11 bar, stem and seatpost, SRAM XX for go and whoa, fizik Tundra saddle and Continental Race King tires. It’s one-of-a-kind, so when bidding closes, this rare Raven is nevermore.

• Cables and rear brake hose are routed internally, stiffening the frame, reducing friction and isolating them from dirt and mud
• Fully-integrated post mount on the chainstay for wider tire clearance — run up to 2.4” rubber
• Rock Shox SID XX fork combines lightweight, responsive suspension with a stiff 32mm chassis that won’t wimp out when the singletrack goes from sweet to savage
• SRAM XX with Exact Actuation delivers smoother, faster, and better shifting with no variation in pull effort from gear to gear. • Crankbrothers Cobalt 11 handlebar, stem and seatpost are strong, lightweight and absolutely gorgeous
• Continental Race King tires roll smoothly, but offer ample grip for spirited climbing and cornering.
