    Summary

    Expirience with the Focus JAM 6.8

    Expirience with the JAM 6.8 2022 The JAM 6.8 loves a good descent! The combination of a 65 degree head tube angle and a long wheelbase calms down the handling of the Focus All Mountain, even if you ride fast. Due to the interplay of a relatively long top tube and a low stack, the riding position is sporty. The way to the summit is not one of the strengths of this bike. With a total weight of 16,1 kg, the All Mountain of Focus is one of the heavier All Mountain that you get for under under 3000 Euro. Despite small weaknesses, above all, this argument is likely to convince: the SRAM brake will slow you down excellently. With the competitors you need deeper pockets for the same braking force. With 6 years warranty, nothing stands in the way of a long-term relationship.
