It wasn’t love at first sight, but our first meeting went well enough with both the FOCUS JAM² 6.9 and the SAM² 6.9 to go on a second date. The new design around the motor integration of the Bosch Smart System is not particularly attractive, but the inner...

The Jam² been completely overhauled, with a new motor, geometry, and suspension layout.

Focus already has a solid 150mm travel alloy all-mountain ebike with their original JAM², but now the full carbon JAM² SL takes natural riding to the next level with a much lighter frame, much lighter powertrain, and adaptable enduro-leaning geometry. Focus...

First ride review of the 2022 FOCUS JAM 8.9. Is this the perfect toy for grownups and can it deliver on the trail with its budget spec?

Pros
  1. all-rounder qualities
  2. clever cable routing
  3. Good value for money
Cons
  1. gets nervous at high speeds
  2. stiff dropper remote
  3. cockpit could be taller for the descents

The Focus Jam gets fruitier by the year, now with plusher suspension and a real DH bias.

Pros
  1. Plush suspension and good flex response from the frame provide plenty of traction. Shimano XT brakes and drivetrain performed without fault. Tyre combo is designed for aggressive trail riding in the very worst conditions. Internal frame storage is a bonus.
Cons
  1. Would benefit from a higher rise bar or 160mm fork. Swapping the CIS stem is a total pain. Headset bearing seized up after a couple of particularly wet rides. Not the most responsive to pedalling efforts. PF92 Bottom Bracket.

E-Mountainbike Magazine

Testing the latest generation of the FOCUS JAM27.0 – Shimano EP8 motor, big 720 Wh battery and near-perfect spec including a wireless drivetrain for € 7,799.

Pros
  1. Motor integration and cable routing
  2. Touring and all-round capabilities
  3. Very strong equipment
Cons
  1. high noise level in downhill
  2. suspension tuning from the factory
