Focus Jam2 Factory Plus eMTB
The Jam2 Factory Plus is a specially crafted eMTB powered by the new, powerful Shimano E8000 drive.
WHAT IS THE FOCUS FACTORY SPEC?
The Factory Spec is a specific model within a bike family that a FOCUS employee has equipped to his or her specifications. They’re enthusiastic cyclists, have big plans year in, year out, and spend a lot of time in the saddle. They’ve fine-tuned their Factory Spec model specifically for such biking adventures. The end result is a bike that they’d happily recommend to their best mates too. The special design is the jewel in the crown of the Factory Spec model.
Like all Jam2 eMTBs in the Focus range, the Factory Spec still has the many unique features that make these bikes so special.
Shimano’s eMTB motor, the E8000 delivering around 70Nm+ of torque is the powerhouse behind the Jam2 Factory 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 Factory 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 Factory 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.
Front suspension is provided via a high spec pair of RockShox Yari’s with remote lockout and 140mm travel. No bump or hollow is too much for these high end performance forks. The addition of a dropper seatpost is a nice touch and ensures total control over riding position on the descends. Plus tyres at 2.8″ ensure the Jam2 Factory Plus sticks to the ground when called upon, whilst the 27.5″ wheel size is simply perfect for all terrain. A SRAM 11-speed derailleur with an 11-42T cassette ensure more than adequate gearing. The front chainring is 38T, facilitating a natural riding experience. A superbly crafted, top of the range DT Swiss XM 1501 wheelset ensures huge strength and performance like no other in its class.
A super light alloy frame ensure reliable and resilient handling together with a high degree of maneuverability. SRAM NX hydraulic disc brakes with large 200mm rotors offer powerful yet controlled braking actions.
The Jam2 Factory Plus is a particularly individual eMTB. It’s personalised design pushes the boundaries even further. With a unique spec, performance and look, this extra-ordinary bike guarantees thrills and enjoyment wherever it plays.
