Two bikes make up the core of the German manufacturer’s e-duallie line, the Jam2 and the Sam2, with a wide range of model options. The 150mm Jam2 is the more trail-focused of the pair, while the 170mm Sam2 is an enduro thoroughbred. Both bikes also feature Focus’s TEC bolt-on battery concept, which enables you to run up to 760Wh of battery power.
