    Summary

    Expirience with the Focus SAM 8.8

    Focus SAM 8.8 Review Fabian Scholz not only designed this bike, he even clinched the title of German Enduro Champion with it. So the SAM 8.8 is really fast when it comes to technical terrain. With 15,15 kg, the SAM 8.8 counts towards the lighter bikes in this price range. The competitors are sometimes heavier. The handling of this bike remains balanced thanks to a moderate geometry. If you are already a little older, your back will love the comfortabel seating position of the SAM 8.8. With shifting systems, other manufacturers in the price segment under 4500 Euro continue to top up to the shelf. With 6 years warranty, nothing stands in the way of a long-term relationship.
