Focus Raven2 9.8
The Raven2 9.8 is a totally unique bike from Focus, new for the coming season.
It’s a no-nonsense carbon hardtail with long stem, steep head angle and fast-rolling tyres. A race bike that’s perfect for everyday use.
Power delivery is via the super light, highly acclaimed Fazua Evation motor. 60Nm of torque energise this incredibly light ebike. Both motor AND battery are fully removable via a simple release button. That’s a weight saving of 3.3kg. The bike then rides as a beautifully balanced conventional with no surplus weight or drag whatsoever. A lightweight cover clips over the remaining cavity resulting in smooth and dynamic lines. The 250Wh battery provides substantial range on the light carbon frame. A totally unique experience, like no other ebike. Because the Fazua system is so efficient, no rider energy is wasted. Riders can pedal further and faster with less help from the motor.
The Raven2 9.8 weighs in at around 14kg and is without doubt one of the lightest production ebikes on the market.
Fazua delivers an exceptionally neat, compact, lightweight motor/battery system. In total, the entire system, including battery/motor, handlebar remote and wiring loom adds about 4.8kg to the total weight of the bike. On average that’s a saving of over 1kg compared to other drive systems. With the motor switched off, cruising at any speed is a breeze, and there’s no drag whatsoever.
Operating the Fazua system is simple and intuitive. The handlebar remote offers access to three assist modes. Assistance is subtle yet powerful, and not as savage as other drive systems. Complementing this beautifully crafted ebike are top quality components. The Raven2 9.8 comes with a high quality Shiamno XT 11-speed derailleur. A nice set of FOX 32 Rhythm have two positions, operated remotely.
The Raven2 9.8 sports incredible aesthetics and performance as well as groundbreaking technology for a totally unique experience.
