Already a class leader in this category, Focus have upped the ante for 2023 with some big upgrades on their Jam2 eMTB's including this new carbon lineup. With the Jam2 8.0 you get all of the features riders love such as Fox 36 Factory Fork with 160mm travel, 4-piston XT brakes, XT 12-speed gearing and a Magic Mary / Big Betty Trail soft tyre combo plus it features the Bosch Smart System with new Bosch CX Race motor and 750Wh battery. A top choice for those advanced riders who really want to attack technical trail features.
Bosch Smart System. You get the Bosch 750Wh powertube battery as standard, which means more laps, bigger days, or more time in Turbo. Download the Bosch eBike flow app to unlock customisable rider modes, fitness and performance data, as well as security features. Add the Bosch eBike Alarm and Connect Module to add a integrated 100dB alarm and GPS tracking to your pride and joy.
Ground Up Frame Redesign. To accomodate the new 750Wh Bosch Smart System power tube battery Focus rotated the Bosch Race CX motor to allow the battery to sit low in the down tube and help keep the weight low down in the bike.
The battery is still removable however to increase frame stiffness and reduce weight the opening for battery removal is at the bottom of the downtube, protected by a sturdy skid plate. This means the frame wall thickness can be reduced to deliver the same stiffness at a lower weight than the previous larger cut out dual wall frame design.
The Jam2 8.0 eMTB has a full carbon frame with alloy chain stay and rocks a stunning two-tone paint finish. The Jam2 bikes also now have a fully active 4-bar rear suspension linkage. This means more traction everywhere and it delivers a more progressive rear end. Paired with a Fox Float X piggy-back shock, you can tune your ride to your heart's content.
Slack or slacker? For more aggressive trails you can slacken the head angle from 65.5 to 64.5 using the rotatable headset cups. This matches the Sam2 6.9 in its least slack setting.
Contact us to preorder. Various sizes on their way. See the Jam2 8.9 if you want a great eMTB but can't quite stretch to the Bosch CX Race Motor and DT Suisse H1900 Wheels. See the Sam2 6.0 eMTB if you prefer a full enduro model with the Race motor.
