We met up with Olly Wilkins for a few laps of Rogate Bike Park and got introduced to his Focus Sam2 eBike.
Olly’s eBike is kept for a special sort of ride. He treats it like an XC bike and uses it for head-down, going HAM, no-chatting, brutal rides that are all about going as hard as you can. For the fun, jumps-and-drops, messing about stuff he’ll always stick to the acoustic bike.
