Focus RAVEN 8.6 – Hardtail 29″
Features – RAVEN 8.6
Sets the benchmark in lightweight construction
Thanks to our high-end carbon technology, our RAVEN weighs just 885 grams. One of the lightest frames in the racing world – with the best performance. The Focus Raven is an XC racing machine to the core – this carbon hardtail has won European and World Championship titles. It impresses with breathtaking acceleration, agile handling and amazing comfort.
Recommended by professionals
Our RAVEN is regularly represented at the World Cup. Only models that successfully survive our endurance test are good enough for you.
Greater comfort means less fatigue
Careful attention has been paid to the lay of the fibres and the pipe dimensions of the seat tube, seat stays, bottom bracket and headset – as rigid as necessary, as comfortable as possible.
MAX Carbon Technology
MAX Carbon Technology means maximum lightweight construction: Highly rigid High Modulus carbon fibers in a fiber-oriented design enable an optimum ratio of weight to stiffness. Combined with processing using the high-pressure molding process, we also achieve maximum strength, which is well above the norm in all test procedures. This is how we design the lightest frames in the world.
Comfort Improving Areas | C.I.A.
C.I.A. allows less muscle fatigue through more comfort. In order to increase the comfort of the bikes, the tube cross-sections of seat stays, chain stays and seat tube (Comfort Improving Areas) are as flat and flexible as possible. This means that the frame absorbs unevenness, the bike runs more smoothly and the rider remains efficient for longer.
Rapid Axle Technology | R.A.T.
R.A.T. is the fastest thru axle in the world and stands for Rapid Axle Technology. It is the first thru axle system that combines the stability, alignment and lateral stiffness of a thru axle with an extremely fast wheel change. In simplicity and speed, the patented R.A.T. system even surpasses conventional quick-releases.
Stable Stiffness Per Size | S.S.P.S.
To ensure that all bike sizes offer the same riding characteristics, all frame heights are individually constructed and have a specially developed carbon lay-up. This Stable Stiffness Per Size (SSPS) production ensures that all sizes offer the optimum weight to stiffness ratio.
