Focus has found an excellent balance that translates to on-trail enjoyment, so long as you aren’t in a rush up the hills
Well thought-out spec
Neat frame storage
A lot of fun on the trail
A bit hefty in weight
CIS stem adds complication if you want/need to change it

Focus says its Jam is designed to ‘release your inner child’ but the chunky build means big kids get to play rough, too
Seriously strong/stiff frame
Very smooth and active FOLD suspension
Neutral handling on a very stable frame platform
Masses of traction
Solid kit with XT highlights
Space for bottle and frame bag
Linear suspension lacks support
Needs very high shock pressures
CIS stem adds servicing/swap complications
Deore chain and cassette

Trick wireless shifting, superb fork and shock and a complete frame reboot makes the Focus Jam 6.0 an intriguing new trail bike.
For the most part excellent geometry for a trail bike, delivering a fun and playful ride. Choice of RockShox suspension is inspired, and little details like a chainguide and tool bag are welcome.
CIS integrated stem limits your ability to fine tune the fit and balance. It’s weighty for a £4k bike.

The FOCUS JAM 6.8 NINE not only looks hot but is also a very capable all-rounder. However, it's held back by some of its components. Looking at it, can you guess what the problem is?
Very versatile bike
Confidence-inspiring and fun
Almost perfect spec
Rear suspension bottoms out
Little clearance for wider rear tires
