YT just presented it’s new line with some new and very interesting offerings, such as the Capra aluminum. Let’s start there.
The aluminum Capra replaces the Wicked and will utilize the same geometry as the carbon version, with differences of only a few millimeters as you can see in the table below.
Stands are two, both with fork Pike 27.5 RCT3 Only Air, Monarch Plus RC3 HV, Guide R brakes, handlebars and Raceface Atlas bar, RockShox Reverb Stealth. Even the wheels are the same, DT SWISS E1900 Spline 27.5.
The AT 1 model has a 1 × 11 drivetrain, weighs 13.9 kg and costs € 2,599 while the AL2 has a 2 × 10 drivetrain, weighs a pound more and costs 100 euro less. Find the details of the build in the pdf attached at the bottom of the page.
A bike this new and already so widely loved does not need any major updates. YT in 2015 will offer a wider choice of colors and a new model called the Capra Pro Race. As you might guess, it is race oriented and spec’d with a BOS Deville FCV with 160mm of travel, BOS Kirk rear shock, a new Renthal 780mm Carbon Fatbar and Apex stem. The wheels are Mavic Crossmax Enduro.
And the bike that Andreu Lacondeguy won the last Red Bull Rampage and which Cam Zink finished second and won Best Trick. For 2015, the wheels on the Tues get updated to 27.5″. The geometry of the bikes have been changed, according to feedback from Zink and Lecondeuy. The reach is now longer for a more centered riding position in line with current DH geometry while still providing greater security on the jumps and more technical sections.
