FOCUS SAM²

FOCUS SAM²
Designed for down: The FOCUS SAM² is the most downhill-oriented e-MTB in our line-up. The easily adjustable geometry is made for the roughest trails. With 180/170 mm travel, and fast 29" wheels, this full suspension bike is ready to shred. It is enhanced by a suspension fork with 38 mm stanchions as standard spec. The F.O.L.D. (FOCUS Optimised Linkage Design) kinematics allows the integrated shock to work best. Thanks to fully integrated C.I.S. cable routing, the cockpit always looks super clean. The Bosch Performance Line CX e-drive with a battery of up to 750 Wh has got your back, even on the steepest climbs.

A new kind of enduro was the bike we imagined when we thought about the new FOCUS SAM². The whole bike: designed for down.

We imagined it sharper, more capable and downhill-orientated, so we needed to give it a more aggressive geometry.

design and technology

MARIO PÖSS, LEAD ENGINEER

“A SLACK HEAD ANGLE AND MODERATE REACH VALUES ARE OUR INTERPRETATION OF FUN DOWNHILL-ORIENTED ENDURO."

“The FOCUS SAM² is made for sending it in the roughest terrain. However, it was super important for us to keep the SAM²-DNA alive: to balance the riding abilities perfectly in between ups and downs. The seat angle is excellent for climbing, the wheel size best for roll-over and traction. Our FOCUS Flip Chip option allows adjustments for those who want to go radical. That is the formula for our new definition of e-Enduro.”

  • 65° head angle, 64° with Flip Chip Drifter-option
  • 450 mm chainstays, 430 mm with Flip Chip
  • 29-inch wheels
  • 27-inch- and Drifter-option with Flip Chip
  • 76° seat tube angle

Integration

How to design a clean cockpit for an e-mountain bike?

We ended up with the Cockpit Integration Solution. We specially developed the C.I.S. design to provide a clean cockpit while ensuring constantly seamless shifting and braking. As a result, C.I.S. provides the first functioning stem with internal cable routing for mechanical shifting.

FOCUS SAM² Bosch C.I.S.
  • Easy adjustable handlebar and brake lever position
  • Rideable with no spacers for super low front end
  • Mechanical shifting and dropper remote possible

DANIEL FRINTZ, DESIGN ENGINEER

“We tried all different options as a cable entrance. The best solution was to place the cables over the handlebar."

“Like that we can reach a big radius for the cables, to ensure that the mechanical shifting and the dropper post have low friction when you push the lever. We combined the construction with a modern and clean design.”

  • 170 mm travel
  • 2-phase kinematics
  • 30% degression
  • 70% progression (30% Sag)
  • Fit for coil and air shocks

FABIAN SCHOLZ, LEAD ENGINEER

"With the SAM² we found a nice balance WHERE BOTH AIR AND COIL SHOCKS WORK AT THEIR BEST"

"Coil shocks need a more progressive leverage curve than air shocks, because an air shock builds more progression itself through the compression of the air. With the SAM² we found a nice balance where both air and coil shocks work at their best individual characteristics"
