Focus Raven 29er 2.0

As of this posting the Focus Raven 29er 2.0 just came off the stand and is sitting on the showroom floor waiting for the inevitable adoring gazes. The bike has to be seen in person to truly appreciate the sculpted carbon frame, especially the wafer thin top tube and seat stays.

Of course the frame, however nice it is in its own right, wouldn't be much without some good components, so this bike is equipped with an XT drivetrain, Reba RL front suspension, Elixir 7 carbon discs, and lots of other nice bits.

This bike has zippy geometry meant for a fast race course but the ride is compliant enough that it's also a strong candidate for enduro events.  No matter your cross country racing style you can't really go wrong with the Raven 2.0, so if you have $4050 set aside for a new purchase and you fit a size Large this should be a strong consideration.
