Focus Raven 650B hardtail mountain bike

The new Focus Raven 650B 1.0 borrows frame cues from the 26″ and 29er versions, getting ribbed, flattened seatstays for both comfort and stiffness.

It’ll only be available in one spec for now, using house brand rims and stem/bar/post with Fizik saddle, full Shimano XT group and SLX hubs and Rockshox Revelation 100mm with remote lockout.

Frames come in XS to XL, and the XS gets a slightly dropped top tube for lower stand over height.¬†Retail is $3,950 and they’re shipping now.

Where is 12×142 on Raven 650b?

Focus is probably one of the most underrated values in road bikes out there.
