FOCUS SAM²

FOCUS SAM²
The FOCUS SAM² is the most aggressive e-MTB in the FOCUS line-up. A modern, downhill-oriented geometry, 170 mm travel with F.O.L.D. kinematics and fast 29" wheels – the SAM² is ready to shred. The downhill-oriented focus is enhanced by suspension forks with 38 mm stanchions as standard spec. Furthermore, the e-Enduro is compatible with a coil shock. The new, fully integrated C.I.S. cable routing ensures a clean cockpit. The Bosch Performance CX e-drive with an integrated, removable 625 Wh battery makes sure uphill is fun as well.

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

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"

FOCUS Optimized Linkage Design F.O.L.D.

FOCUS Optimized Linkage Design F.O.L.D.

F.O.L.D. stands for FOCUS Optimised Linkage Design, and offers the ultimate in rear suspension. The patented F.O.L.D. kinematics make it possible to optimise the rear triangle for an extremely wide range of different requirements: F.O.L.D. is extremely sensitive while being progressive enough to prevent a harsh bottom out.
Flip Chip

Flip Chip

Thanks to the FOCUS FLIP CHIP you are not determined to one wheel size when buying our JAM² E-MTB. There are two positions for the axle at the dropout: The "low position" is optimised for 27+ tyres, the "high position" perfectly fits 29" wheels. The suspension fork of your E-MTB can take both tyre dimensions. This means you can ride your E-MTB with 29", 27+ and as Drifter (29"/27+). The postmount adapter for this wheel change is included in your delivery.
