Focus on the SAM 2.0

2.0 is not the internet connected version of the enduro bike from Focus, the SAM. It’s simply the second model, behind the 1.0 and above the 3.0. It follows the same philosophy as the 1.0 but with less sophistications. let’s go for a quick overview.

Frame is strictly the same – the bike keeps its 160mn front / rear but the suspensions does not come from SRAM anymore. You can see a Fox Talas and a brand new Magura rear shock that matches the work of a fox float rear shock.

There is a mix for the drivetrain with a beautiful sram carbon crankset associated with SHimano XT derailleurs and shifters. Reynolds keeps the hand with an alloy AM wheelset (carbon is offered with the 1.0 version).

Components comes from the in-house brand Concept EX. The good idea of FOcus comes from Shimano with the use of the Ispec concept that ables to match shifters and brake levers on a same clamp. It’s really efficient to keep its handlebar clean. You can see now with more facilities the command of the Kind Shock LEV on the right side.

To conclude, we are not used to talk about price but as someone already asks them, the 2.0 is for sale for 3 800€.
