Focus JAM² Plus Pro - Sport Offroad Test Winner

A trails bike with superb handling. It’s a test win for the Focus JAM² Plus Pro in the Sport Offroad product group.


This powerhouse of a bike, with full-suspension comfort and fat knobbly tyres, delivers a thoroughly enjoyable ride. When you reach the power assist’s limiting speed, it cuts out abruptly, although this is not an issue for off-road use, where you’re never really riding at constant speeds. But on the everyday and touring routes, this was found to be very irritating.
The chassis and the power-packed Shimano STEPS motor are well integrated. Motor power is interrupted briefly for every gear change, so that the wear that would typically otherwise occur is minimised – a special feature made possible by collaboration between the manufacturers of the motor system and gearing. Unfortunately the remote dropper seatpost sometimes dropped down and would then not rise again of its own accord.
The RockShox suspension systems absorbed just about everything, so even high kerbs could be barely felt. “Its handling on the trails is superb” was the verdict from Marco Hösel, six times Trials World Champion. The Focus JAM² Plus Pro delivers powerful and pleasant assistance. It’s a test winner which motivates you to perform at your best.
