Focus Sam2 6.8 2019 Full Suspension Electric Mountain Bike Grey Information

Season : 2019

Brand : Focus

Code : 63351401

With a quality spec, 170mm travel and the Shimano Steps E8000 drive system, the Focus Sam2 6.8 helps you rediscover enduro.

The Sam2 is the bigger brother of the Jam2 range, offering the larger travel you'd expect from an enduro. The frame is formed of stiff 7005 hydroformed aluminium, offering rigidity and ruggedness for attacking the terrain whilst remaining lightweight and responsive. The battery has been seamlessly integrated into the downtube whilst the Shimano Steps motor has been subtly designed at bottom bracket level which lowers the bike’s centre of gravity. You'd have to double take to even realise this was an E-Bike.

The Steps E8000 e-Bike System is one the best assistance systems out there, offering a very natural feel whilst riding. There are 3 modes of assistance: dynamic mode, explorer mode or customise your own level of assistance. For more information on the Steps system, see here.

The Sam2 6.8 boasts FOX 36 Performance Elite forks and a FOX Float DPS Performance rear shock with 170mm travel. Combine this with Focus' innovative FOLD system, you're always in control. The Shimano Zee hydraulic disc brakes offer a high level of stopping power allowing you to pedal harder and brake less. The Shimano Deore XT drivetrain is a proven MTB workhorse; the accurate and reliable shifting is something you expect with Shimano, and the 11 speed range with the Steps motor means you have the ability to tackle any terrain.

Alongside their high spec components, the SAM2 bikes offer some of the best tech on the market:

Tailored Energy Concept

 Focus’s Tailored Energy Concept (TEC) is an example of this, allowing you to simply and easily mount an additional TEC pack for those extended rides. TEC pack can be purchased as an aftermarket part and is not supplied as standard. With 756Wh at your disposal, you can really smash the trails all day long. Check out this demonstration video.


The Focus Optimised Linkage Design, or FOLD for short, offer rear suspension that was designed with E-MTB in mind; by utilising ‘two-phase kinematics’ Focus have managed to create a rear suspension that is both degressive in the first phase and progressive in the second phase. The regressive phase is extremely responsive to the smallest of bumps, with a marked increase in traction as a result. The second progressive phase provides sufficient control needed for larger impacts and prevents bottom outs and rim damage. Control is guaranteed with FOLD.


Overheating batteries can ruin anyone’s day, but not with Focus’s Airflow System. The innovative design ensures a flow of fresh, cool air into the downtube where the integrated battery is housed and ensures it stays cool all day long. Perfect for those longer rides.

Enduro has never been so fun.
