E-Bike drive systems

The electric drive is the core component of your e-bike that provides you with assistance in those crucial moments and gives you extra energy for more fun on the trail. But the “one size fits all” approach doesn’t apply here, as not every drive is right for every purpose. FOCUS always uses the right electric motor for your adventure to ensure that you enjoy the very best riding performance.

The right type of e-assistance for every type of use

To ensure you can enjoy maximum riding fun², especially on the trail with our electric mountain bikes, we have opted for the powerful and dynamic SHIMANO STEPS MTB drive. SHIMANO STEPS MTB is characterised by its compact design and low weight (of less than 3.2 kg). These benefits allow our engineers to design a geometry equal to that of a mountain bike that doesn’t have a drive. So, how does that work, exactly? SHIMANO places the bottom bracket drive axle as far back as possible. We can therefore design our electric mountain bikes with a short chain stay and provide you with an extremely versatile electric mountain bike. The SHIMANO STEPS MTB’s compact design means that the Q factor remains at 175 mm. As a result, our high-performance electric mountain bikes have the same pedal position as mountain bikes that don’t have a drive – so you can ride around bends just as quickly and dynamically without having to hit the ground. We call these models “SQUARED” and have given them an “x²” because they allow you to ramp up your riding experience and take it to a whole new level.

More on the SQUARED EXPERIENCE

The SQUARED models mean you have the lightest electric mountain bikes possible offering a low centre of gravity and trail-oriented handling at your disposal. The level of electric assistance can be freely selected between ECO, TRAIL and BOOST modes. The ECO mode means you save power while making your way to the start of the trail, while the TRAIL mode offers you super-dynamic riding fun. BOOST mode, on the other hand, provides maximum power delivery for those steep, challenging uphill trails.


T.E.C.

In combination with FOCUS’ specifically developed T.E.C. (TAILORED ENERGY CONCEPT), you can get even more out of your FOCUS electric mountain bike. A remarkable 378 Wh battery has been elegantly integrated in the down tube, and another battery can be quickly and easily installed on the down tube if necessary. Together, the two batteries would give you 756 Wh of power for a long trail tour. The clever Smart Rack, meanwhile, provides you with plenty of other ways of bringing all your bits and bobs along with you.

FIREBOLT operating unit

Another benefit of the SHIMANO STEPS MTB is the fact that it is simple to handle and operate. The ergonomic Firebolt switch allows you to swiftly change between assist levels. The shifter for changing gears has the same ergonomic shape, so it can be operated in the same way and intuitively as a result. This makes adjusting the assist levels to your current riding situation a great deal easier – and you don’t have to give up control via your finishing kit while doing so. You’ll be riding more economically and cover more ground too.

// Convenient shifting
// Robust design
// Intuitive positioning
// Operating unit for pushing assistance

DISPLAY

The clear and intuitive colour display is extremely well-protected between the handlebar and handlebar stem, and has an inconspicuous design that doesn’t interrupt your electric mountain bike’s good-looking and clean appearance. All it takes is a quick glance and you’ll see everything you need to know about the power-assist mode and the battery status. Bluetooth and an ANT Private chip guarantee outstanding interconnectivity for system/smartphone compatibility and work perfectly with the SHIMANO Di2 gearshift.

// Colour LCD display offers intuitive and clear presentation
// Compact and integrated into the bike’s overall look
// Perfectly protected between the handlebar and the handlebar stem
// Interconnectivity due to ANT Private (Di2) and Bluetooth connection
