FOCUS SAM FAMILY ENGLISH
Nothing can hold you back. No obstacle is too great. Downhill, you are king on the FOCUS SAM, and you make light work of the uphill grind. Even when you leave the straight and narrow of the trodden path. In Enduro racing situations, the FOCUS Trail Team puts all its faith in the FOCUS SAM. And rightly so – as its many titles prove. A winner. Cheered on by all. During the race, by customers, in the press But don't just take our word for it!

You’re prepared to live Enduro.
PROVEN IN COMPETITION
The SAM features geometry that has been primed for enduro. No corners cut, infinite testing, overwhelming success
Our Twin Bearing System at the rear is robust and low maintenance, ensuring no premature end to the fun you’re having with the SAM.
Our state-of-the-art rear with 160 mm travel is an all-round winner: sensitive on descents, supportive in sprints and efficient on climbs.
There are two parallel ball bearings in the articulation of the rear triangle. The FOCUS Twin Bearing System compensates for lateral forces acting on the rear triangle. This increases the frame stiffness and ensures longer bearing life.
The cables and hydraulic lines are routed inside the frame for protection, creating a neat look and extending the service life of the lines for perfect gear shifting and braking at all times.
Pressfit 30 combines the benefits of the BB30 and Pressfit bottom brackets. Pressfit 30 features a preassembled seal in the cups to further prolong the bearing life.
The tapered head tube increases the headset stiffness while also reducing the steering weight.
Butted aluminium tubes are designed so that the walls are thicker at areas under more stress, with a constant external diameter. FOCUS aluminium tubes are triple-butted. This reduces the weight without impacting on the stability.
To ensure that all bike sizes offer the same level of quality, all frame sizes on offer are designed individually. This Stable Stiffness Per Size (SSPS) production method ensures that all sizes provide the perfect ratio of weight to stiffness.
Thanks to ongoing checks and the use of the latest manufacturing methods, we can offer the very best carbon quality with a long service life. For this reason, we can offer a 6-year manufacturer's warranty on all FOCUS carbon frames and forks.
Our Factory Spec is a specific model within a bike family that a FOCUS employee has equipped to his or her specifications. Our employees are enthusiastic cyclists. They have big plans year in, year out, and spend a lot of time in the saddle. They have fine-tuned their Factory Spec model specifically for such biking adventures – and the end result is such great value for money that they’d happily recommend it to their best mates too. The special design is the jewel in the crown of the Factory Spec model.
