Description of FOCUS SAM LTD Mountainbike 2016 - magicblack matt
For those epic journeys and far ranging adventures, the SAM is your perfect choice. Uphill and down, you'll find this all-new offering from FOCUS to be the ultimate riding companion. Generous suspension travel of 160mm at both ends, in combination with 27.5" wheels, ensures comfort and control everywhere. Aggressive styling and a stellar spec choice makes the SAM ready for anything.
The elaborately butted frame comes with a nice absorbing linkage driven single pivot rear suspension with 12x142 mm X12 thru axle. The clean appearance is achieved through an internal cable routing, which extends the lifespan of the shifting cables significantly. A tapered head tube stands for increased steering head rigidity, which leads in a improved handling of the bike in extreme situations and at maximum downhill speed. The Focus Twin Bearing system can compensate lateral forces which are introduced into the rear triangle better. This extends the durability of the bearings.
The short chainstays, a long top tube and short stem make an incredible agility of the bike. The short headtube improves the driver position on the bike and virtually integrates him into the chassis. The flat steering angle stands for absolute control and smooth operation in harsh driving situations. The 650B wheels rolled over everything in its path, but still offer superior handling and braking ability, closer to what you expect out of a 26" wheel.
The Focus Sam is equipped with SRAM GX 1x11-speed components for smooth shifting performance. Hydraulic Shimano disc brakes allow great breaking power on the trail while the FOX F34 Performance / RS Monarch suspension provides unlimited fun with its 160 mm of travel. The wide handlebar center provides maximum riding performance and the solid Concept wheelset with 23 jaw wide forgives even a muffed hard landing.
Continental Mountain King provides a guarantee that acceleration transfer directly to the trail. Also contributing to the enormous versatility is the Concept dropper post. It saves the seat adjustment before and after downhill sections.
