Jack’s 2020 Focus Jam Team Edition

Jack is our resident QC master. He ensures that each wheelset that rolls out the door is up to the NOBL standard of quality. On the trail, Jack’s ride style is almost acrobatic as he finds every opportunity to get his wheels off the ground.  Despite 29″ wheels increasingly becoming the norm, he opted for 27.5″ hoops since they complement his ride style.

“I chose the Focus Jam because of its lightweight super playful carbon frame. The personality of this bike fits the local Comox Valley trail vibe to a T. It soaks up the burlier hits with 140mm of rear suspension and a 160mm coil fork. Naturally, I’m a super playful jibby type rider, so I’ve been very impressed by the Jam.”

“TR37’s mated to a set of tan wall EXO Maxxis tires are a dream setup, to say the least.”

Industry Nine Hydra

“TR37s matched with the Industry Nine Hydra are a killer setup, because freehub noise is a good thing, and the new premium TR37s feel absolutely incredible after riding alloy.”
