Focus SAM² Video Review – $6k Enduro Electric Bike

https://electricbikereview.com/focus/sam-squared/ The Focus SAM² is a full suspension enduro style e-mountain bike with long 170 mm air suspension by Fox, available in three frame sizes and two colors, excellent Magura hydraulic disc brakes. Near-perfect weight distribution, standard 175 mm Q Factor, super short chain stay length for snappy nimble feel, stealthy design with battery completely encased in the downtube. Optional TEC Pack battery mounts on top of the downtube and doubles range for $599, bottle cage adapter uses the same mount for stock single-battery riding, comes with a dropper seat post. Faster 4 Amp charger with magnetic plug, excellent two-year comprehensive warranty, cannot remove the display or battery easily for protection or charging off-bike, display interface requires some reaching to change menus, Shimano motor doesn’t offer shift detection and delivers more of a hard start than smooth.

Proof that bicycling has become anally ridiculous.

Kevin Lafon says:

I am enjoying this bike a lot. I bought one a few month ago, and i am having a blast. The bike has two faces: Enduro beast, light, nimble, confidence inspiring in descents, and it also has a huge range with the add on battery which doubles the capacity, the bike transforms into a marathon monster, capable of riding the mountains all day without having to worry about battery management. Here’s the video of my first ride on it, in Basque Country / France. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfffXy1_av4

Beautiful bike indeed! Showroom stopper. Is Santa Cruz going to be making an E-bike also??

Secondary battery isn’t unique – I saw similar last year Nov 2017 in Bern Switzerland on an eBike.

James Chesal says:

The only difference between Focus and Jesse James is Jesse James used a gun.

George says:

Nicest enduro e-bike in the market today

Honky Tonk says:

Love the bike because it does not look like an electric bike because the battery is hidden.
