All New Focus Jam2 e-MTB
Focus claims to have reinvented the electric mountain bike with the Jam2. Focus says it’s retained the playful ride character of its Jam trail bike with the added oomph of a Shimano Steps E8000 motor.
The Jam2 Plus is a unique full suspension eMTB powered by the new, powerful Shimano E8000 drive.
For 2017, innovative German bike brand Focus have introduced a range of 2017 eMTBs sporting a number of very special features. The Jam2 Plus is their full suspension version on a 27.5″ tyre with 2.8″ width. The result is a very nimble and agile performer with great adhesion and ability. Designed for trails and every manner of rough terrain, this gutsy performer is guaranteed to please.
Shimano’s eMTB motor, the E8000 delivering around 70Nm+ of torque is the driving force behind the Jam2 Plus. It’s light at 2.8Kg, compact and slim. It’s Q Factor is identical to conventional cycles, and as a consequence, the bike feels very natural to ride. Furthermore, the motor design facilitates a shorter chainstay length, comparable to a conventional bike. Frame fit is perfectly integrated and sleek. Three power settings feature on the E8000 with a walk assist function too. Assistance levels on the Jam2 Plus are operated via a Firebolt switch on the left-hand side of the bars. A compact yet clear LCD offers all the necessary information, sitting out of harms way adjacent to the handlebar stem.
Totally unique to the Jam2 Plus is their own Dual Battery system. Focus call it T.E.C. (Tailored Energy Concept). The addition of a second battery increases capacity to a huge 756Wh for immense range. This is achievable by mounting another battery, which connects very simply, on the downtube. If an additional battery isn’t required, there’s room for the attachment of a water bottle if desired, with its own compartment on the cage for carrying tubes or tools. Both the battery and bottle cage attach quickly and easily without any fuss.
All Jam2 eMTBs utilise the unique F.O.L.D. (FOCUS OPTIMIZED LINKAGE DESIGN) suspension system. It embodies the perfect balance between rigidity and forgiveness. All suspension hardware is located in the frame’s centre. The resulting extremely low centre of gravity enables superb handling especially on technical terrain and cornering – perfect for superb bike handling. The core of the design is a one piece rear triangle, which results in massive weight savings.
