Whether you’re just getting into mountain biking, or you’re simply looking to upgrade, a full suspension trail bike is a great option for any rider who wants more confidence, more comfort and more efficiency for squeezing in as many trails into the day as possible. Unlike a full-blown race bike such as the Focus Raven or O1E, the Focus Spine offers a more relaxed riding position for all-day pedalling comfort. It also has a more supple suspension feel that is better at absorbing the tree roots and rocks that you’ll encounter on most trails, helping to smoothen out the trail. Thanks to the added traction afforded by the front and rear suspension, technical climbs become easier, and cornering becomes more intuitive. Combine that with the light overall weight of the Spine Donna and its stiff and strong frame, and you’ve got a highly capable mountain bike that covers a wide variety of duties.

Compared to the regular Spine model, the Spine Donna is the women’s specific version. It uses the same frame as the alloy Spine models, and it also uses the same geometry and the same suspension design. What is different are the contact points. That includes the handlebar and stem, which are profiled to offer a shorter reach from the saddle to the grips, which better suits those riders with shorter arms and shorter torsos. Also different is the saddle, which is a women’s specific model that provides better support for female sit bones, resulting in more comfort. Like the unisex versions, the Spine Donna is equipped with air-adjustable suspension. That means it’s lighter than cheaper coil-sprung suspension, but it also means it’s much more adjustable. Whether you’re 45kg or 95kg, a shock pump is all you need to change the pressure to suit your riding weight and riding style. And that means every rider can enjoy the 120mm of smooth travel front and rear on the capable Spine trail bike.

The Focus Spine Donna comes fitted with RockShox suspension front and rear, along with grippy Continental tyres, a SRAM 1x11 drivetrain, and a Concept dropper seat post.
