Focus Bikes presents his 2014 models

(google translate)One of the most important aspects in the off-road segment is the size of the wheels and one wonders, in particular, the extent to which they impose. Here, Focus expresses a clear judgment: with the range of models in 2014, the bike 26 "will be replaced more and more by the 27.5". In the segment XC / Marathon (platforms and Raven Black Forest) tires 26" have already been removed completely, then FOCUS pronounce clearly in favor of a thickness of 27.5". Even the frames of the future development will be structured according to the two measures only "major". Of note, the new model called SAM, bike Enduro / All Mountain.
The frame 29 Raven seems to have been made even lighter (even if the old man was certainly not heavy so it seems that they are able to stay just below the kg) while the version in 27.5" will have as a novelty the setting with fork and Magura -LECT (electronic).
Other new features include the aluminum hardtail, the Black Forest, which will have internal cable routing and thru-axle 142x12...a novelty for a bike is not top of the range.
