German Enduro Mountainbike Magazin tested the sickest bikes money can buy. Surely, our FOCUS SAM C Team is a must in this list. Dream bike out of the box. What the testers liked most? The super handling and the stylish design of the FOCUS SAM.
"Compared to its aluminium counterpart, the more aggressively shaped frame with its low top tube is much more than just an attractive design, as the SAM’s technical stats and geometry left us satisfied. Playing a massive role in the bike’s performance, the geometry and suspension really work, immediately dispelling our doubts about the SAM’s test participation. The long frame and short chainstays lend the SAM that much sought-after mix of stability and agility that every modern enduro bike wants to nail."
Conclusion: Without undertaking any tuning, the Focus SAM C Team has managed to win the hearts of our test riders, proving irrefutably that modern bikes have the capacity to perform brilliantly even when they come directly ‘out of the box.’ If you’re a fan of customizing, the stunning carbon frame couldn’t be a better starting point.
