While some might still be recovering from New Year’s Blues, YT have already shifted into the next gear. They release their 2016 bikes today. Along with new graphics, the 2016 bikes are also equipped with brand new suspension parts. In addition to the proven RockShox suspension, FOX forks and shocks are now on board for this year as well. Read all the details in the press release:

YT CAPRA CF and YT TUES get ready for the 2016 season.
YT CAPRA CF and YT TUES get ready for the 2016 season.

For 2016, the top models of the enduro and downhill range are equipped with FOX suspension parts. The extensive configuration options in terms of rebound and compression are going to be appealing for racers and pro-riders alike. In addition, the Pro versions of the bikes are equipped with full-on racing parts, which leave no wish unfulfilled. In addition to the specification updates, the bikes also receive a completely fresh look. The CAPRA and the TUES are going to blast through the woods with a hot new look, which is characterized by a straightforward appearance and new color-options. All in all, our 2016 range is extremely versatile: from high-end bikes for professionals and racers and comp-level bikes for the middle segment, all the way to entry-level bikes for young talents on a budget. All of the above can be found on a brand new, easy-to-use, and thoroughly re-designed YT website.


The aluminium version of the CAPRA was introduced in late 2015, now the carbon version of the enduro bike follows with three different options: CAPRA CF Pro Race, CAPRA CF Pro, and CAPRA CF Comp. Both Pro models are equipped with a FOX 36 Float Factory fork and a FOX Float X2 Factory shock, that offer plenty of settings for suspension-savvy racers and trail-surfers. The CAPRA CF Pro adds even more suspension-travel to your ride: with a full 180mm up front, with 170mm out back the CAPRA CF Pro is definitely ready for rough terrain and trips to the bike park. The name of the top model, CAPRA CF Pro Race already reveals its character: made for racing without compromises. The bike is equipped with top-notch components which are extremely tough and light. Some other highlights of the bike, beside the FOX 36 fork and the Float X2 shock, are the DT Swiss carbon wheelset, the Renthal carbon bars, as well as the super-crisp SRAM Guide Ultimate brakes. The CAPRA CF Comp does not need to hide behind the Pro versions: the combination of the RockShox Lyrik RCT3 and the RockShox Monarch Plus RC3 lets you easily handle chunk, roots, and drops. 1×11 is standard on all three CAPRA CF models.

In our Enduro Bike Group Test 2015 we reviewd the previous YT CAPRA CF Pro Race.

YT TUES 2016

Improving the TUES was quite a difficult task. After all, it has grown up quite a bit and has become a sophisticated downhill bike, full of character. It has proven that it can easily handle the monster-sized jumps at the FEST series and the massive abuse inflicted at Rampage. For 2016 the TUES CF Pro comes equipped with new suspension components. The FOX 40 Float Factory fork and the FOX Float X2 Factory shock are a killer team, which in combination with tough parts makes the TUES CF Pro a perfect companion for your next race. Carbon wheels, carbon cranks, and carbon handlebars keep the weight low and the speed at a maximum. The TUES CF Comp is rigged with the dream combo of the RockShox Boxxer Team and the RockShox Vivid R2C. The DT Swiss wheels plus the full Renthal cockpit smoothen out this rad package, which is suitable for almost every rider – the TUES CF Comp is easy to handle but still fully suitable for racing. For young talents on a tighter budget, we offer the TUES AL, which is a well-equipped door opener for those looking to get into the business of downhill.
