First Ride: 2022 Focus Jam2 eMTB

Dec 13, 2021
by Seb Stott  

Focus might not be the first brand that comes to mind when you think of dream bikes on bedroom wall posters, but the German firm is okay with that. They're part of the bike industry giant Pon Holdings, which also owns Santa Cruz, and more recently GT and Cannondale, among others. One of Focus' brand managers made an analogy with VW group, the car giant which includes car brands like Audi and Lamborghini, alongside the VW brand. He likened Santa Cruz to Audi or Lamborghini - the luxury performance brand with racing heritage - and Focus to VW - the everyday brand for people who want solid value, and aren't swayed by flashy marketing, influencers or race results.

With that in mind, Focus say they designed the refreshed Jam2 electric trail bike for fun and reliability rather than racing, so the suspension is tuned for sensitivity and pop rather than maximum stability, and the frame and components are designed to cope with a whopping 150 kg system weight, which should offer peace of mind if you're spending your own hard-earned cash. This beefing-up includes a 34.9mm seat tube, wheelsets with reinforced spokes, nipples and cassette bodies, plus a 1.8" steerer tube.

Well that was ... informative.

Motor & Battery

Focus uses the Shimano EP8 system on all three models of the Jam2 - no skimping by fitting older units on the cheaper builds. Like many other brands, Focus has decided to go with a bespoke battery to increase the range. It's Shimano approved and offers 720 Wh of juice - that's 14% more than the battery in the outgoing Jam2. The battery is integrated into the intact downtube and can be removed for off-bike charging by sliding it out the bottom of the tube after removing one bolt just in front of the motor.


Frame details

Like the Jam, the Jam2's analogue stablemate, Focus has opted to route all the cables through the stem and headset to make things neater and reduce cable rattle. There are no cable routing options through the frame directly; the cables have to go through the headset. Focus only make one stem length (50 mm), so if you want to fit a different stem you'll need a special headset top cap which allows the cables to run through the headset but not the stem.

Like many e-bikes, there's a fork bumper to stop the bars from contacting the frame in a crash. There is room for a full-size water bottle in a standard cage if using an in-line shock, and if using a piggyback shock, an adapter moves the bottle cage back and down so a large bottle to fit behind the shock reservoir. There's also a handy tool bag in front of the shock that's big enough for a tube, tyre levers and a multi-tool.


A USB-C charging point located on the top-tube makes it possible to top up your phone, GPS or perhaps a bike light on the go from the main battery, and there's a removable kickstand mount located by the rear axle. While neither of these features will hold you back from sending triples, they're a nod to the fact that many customers will sometimes use these bikes for less glamorous tasks like commuting or picking up shopping - something which isn't uncommon for a full-suspension ebike in Germany.

Suspension

The 2022 Jam2 has gone from a vertical to a horizontal shock layout. Focus still refers to the system as FOLD (Focus Optimised Linkage Design), and it still uses a linkage-driven single-pivot layout, but compared to the previous Jam2, the horizontally-mounted shock allows for a lower top tube and more standover clearance.

Focus say they've designed the leverage curve to make the suspension sensitive throughout most of the travel before ramping up at the end of the travel to resist bottom outs. Meanwhile, the single-pivot suspension keeps anti-squat levels close to 100% at the sag point across the spread of gears. This should help the bike pedal through bumpy terrain without bobbing or wallowing too much on smoother sections.


Geometry

In a move that will shock nobody, the Jam2 has got longer and slacker than its predecessor. It may not have the most boundary-pushing numbers, but the geometry certainly isn't lagging behind the pack. A flip-chip offers 5.5 mm of BB height adjustment; picking the low setting also causes about half a degree to be lost from the frame angles and 5 mm from the reach.

Ride Impressions

Focus sent me the top-spec Jam2 7.0 to test a few days before this goes live. At this point, I've only had time to ride it once. What I can tell you is that it is a very comfortable climber. The seat angle is steep enough and there's plenty of room in the cockpit to give a comfortable position on a range of gradients. Meanwhile, the suspension is nice and supple even while putting down full power; throw in the 29" wheels and 2.6" tires and it gobbles up the chatter and delivers masses of traction on rough, wet climbs.

I think the 2.6" Schwalbe tires are a good choice all around for comfort, protection and grip, though for wet Scottish trails I'd prefer a Magic Mary on the rear as well as the front. The 220 mm rotors are very welcome too - they should be fitted to all e-bikes with SRAM Codes if you ask me.

On the descents, the bike loves to plow. The Zeb Select+ fork and Fox shock do a great job of isolating you from rapid-fire hits. But once on tight, technical and awkward sections, it's not easy to maneuver the bike quickly or correct mistakes. Even though it's no heavier than many bikes in its category, the Jam2 doesn't hide its weight particularly well in the tight stuff. The dropper post delivers 165 mm of travel and I could use more room to move my weight around. Similarly, swapping to a 40 mm stem (which would be a big job in this case) and a higher-rise handlebar might make it easier to manhandle the bike through the tech.

 E-Bikes are like SUVs, at least here in Europe.

No one uses them as intended/as they look like.

 Its bonkers, how is a 150 travel bike actually comfortable/useful for gentle riding around town? unless they run so much sag that they are near bottoming out on curbs.
The whole "with modern geo nobody goes over the bars anymore" is going to come undone when someone perched on the saddle and holding the bars loosely slams their brakes on.
A rigid plus or fat bike (with motor, so rolling resistance is no bother) would better serve them.

 @AyJayDoubleyou: the same as with SUV's. A Range Rover or Audi Q7 also isn't useful for gentle riding around town. Fuel mileage is horrible, parking is a repeating challenge, hitting someone results in near decapitation, and the useful space inside is less than a more frugal, far cheaper and smaller-on-the-outside stationwagon. This doesn't stop people from buying them though, with the number of stationwagons plummeting and that of SUV's skyrocketing. I see lots of soccer moms and dads driving big SUV's (while calling with mobile in hand and using 2.5 spaces when parking) and there is a guy in my town that rides a €5,000 Cube Stereo 160mm e-bike just for going to the local shoarma place...
What people need and what people want is, unfortunately, something completely different most of the time.

 When I first started biking my Walmart bike had one, I was hitting a tiny plank jump (like most beginners do) and the kickstand went out and I landed weird and crashed BAD. Don’t use a kickstand on a MTB, or better yet don’t ride most Walmart bikes (some are actually decent nowadays).

 If these bikes are not used for their intended purpose, then why are they loaded up with high end components? No wonder we have a massive shortage. I see people on the daily farting around on specced out bikes. These people do not need high end components.... Save that stuff for the people that actually use it to its full potential.

 @dutchbag: Agree. If someone has loads of money and wants some perfect and effortless AXS shifting while they ride to the shops, fine by me.
But what benefit are they actually getting out of a Zeb, super soft magic marys and what looks like a 200mm dropper? You could actively improve this bike (for the rich urban user) by downspeccing these things. More expensive doesnt always equal better.

I asked one of my collegues if he could gently manage "that".

 @AyJayDoubleyou: maybe they bought their ebike and use it for everything from nipping to pub/shops all the way up to epic days in the mountains. It would be less wasteful than having an ebike as part of your N+1
  • 1 1
 @Midnightwheelie: it's not that the kickstand itself is a problem (after removal!). It's that a manufacturer designing a bike for serious riding wouldn't dare to deliver it stock with a kickstand (because they know that's dangerous when actually riding trails). Therefore, most bikes that come stock with a kickstand are just meant to look cool like a proper MTB, but actually designed to be cheap and used on the streets. Other parts, like headsets, brakes and cranks, will probably also be built for street riding instead of trail riding. My advice is therefore to be very careful with bikes with a kickstand. It's a fairly reliable indicator for designers not having actual mountainbiking in mind.

 Another brand that needs an ml size.

1261 is as big as a large dh bike in large so id end up on a medium at 455 reach.

I switched out from a large brand with 475 reach to a large orbea wild fs at 455 reach. The orbea is less stable but so much more fun and manoeuvrable and at 178 the newest large bikes are really pushing sizing as far as they should go.

I hear its common the long and low for stability is also to keep newer riders and riders generally safer so they are injured less, enjoy the sport more and keep buying.

Can any product manager confirm this?
  • 2 0
 Yup, really wish more brands would follow Trek's lead and release a ML. Something with a 460-465 reach and a non-boat wheelbase. You'd think that the bike industry would want to cater to the fat of the body shape bell curve and you'd be horribly wrong.

  • 9 6
 just my opinion but: more fun uphill, less fun downhill, WAY more of a pain to work on, do a bit more trail damage on the uphills, probably about the same on the down. I find them to be fun on dirtbike trails and not nearly as fun on pedal bike trails as a non assisted pedal bike (except on the uphills, way more fun). I work at a shop in the western rockies, most people who buy them are rich middle aged or older folks with no MTB experience, which means that e-bike customers are usually the most entitled, most demanding, and least appreciative. and it almost never results in them driving their car less, most of the e-bikers in my area put their heavy motorized bike on the back of their diesel full size truck to go to the trailhead that's 4 miles from their house.

 @blackercanyons: it is interesting looking at who is buying them...good for them if it is getting them out and more active. I do see the benefit but as i get older i wonder how they impact the environment....it's all about the fun for me and i like to pedal atm.

 @blackercanyons: not strange that there aren't too many young people buying them. Low income, high rent. Their extensive.
Back in the days i would save up the same amount and then just leave everything for 6-8 months. Living life. I'm positive what i would choose, both then, and today if i could.

But i can't, and therefore to be able to make three laps instead of one is huge. And to be able to reach one instead of zero. And no, I'm not fat, lazy, but may bottom out my sus.

 @klerric destroy trails - no
Less fun - not for me
Ride heavy - depends, jibbing and slow sharp turns yes and you can feel you need more brake to slow them. Fast turns and rocky stuff they feel great, at times better than a regular bike. If you have good pumping/jumping skills you can make them pop and fly much easier than you'd expect.
I bought mine mainly for trail work and recovery rides and was ready for it to feel a pig. I've been hugely surprised, love the thing and ride it much more than I expected.
  • 3 0
 @klerric: yeah i mean i think it's undeniable that the environmental impact is worse. I've ridden one prob about 15 times, I prefer my non-motorized bike by a fair margin. The only days I prefer the e-bike are days that I don't have a ton of time to ride and want to squeeze in a lap before work, or if I'm super tired from riding the non-e bike.
  • 2 1
 @blackercanyons: based off the trek report and vehicle emissions once you have ridden 75-200 miles (depending on vehicle efficiency) either commuting, riding to the trailhead or instead of a shuttle you are reducing overall carbon emissions. On the other hand anything with a battery is a problem.
  • 3 1
 @catweasel: based on what I've seen, very few people do that. The vast majority of e-mtb-ers are not replacing any car travel with their bike, they are adding the e-bike on top, or even driving more often to get to trailheads they didn't previously visit.

 I can ride more, cover more ground, ride faster, have more fun, I don't die on uphill, I don't think where I want to go anymore, I just go. If I'm under the weather or have a minor injury, I can still go for a ride. If I'm cold, I can turn off assist and quickly warm up, lol. My bike rides like a normal bike, it's ~23 kg, the weight is noticeable only on uphill and when I have to carry it. I don't know how they can destroy trails, I think the weight of the system matters more, my 70 kg + 23 kg bike is much less then someone ~100 kg on a 12 kg carbon trail thingy. I don't get wheelspin on flat even in boost mode, and I remember wheelspin on normal bike going uphill. And if the future of the e-mtb is something like Orbea Rise, I don't think there will be a debate. As for the environmental impact, Americans with their car-centric culture should just shut up.
