Does this bike give you supernatural powers? With the new DECOY SN (SuperNatural), YT have unveiled their very first light e-mountainbike, which features a FAZUA Ride 60 motor system and generates 170/160 mm of travel. The flagship model we tested retails at just € 8,499 and weighs over 20 kg. But does YTs new not-very-light light ebike feel supernatural? We’ve tested one to find out.

With the new YT DECOY SN, the boys and girls at Young Talent present their first light e-mountainbike. However, despite the compact FAZUA drive and small 430 Wh battery, it’s not the lightest bike out there, tipping the scales at just over 20 kg. However, this is partly due to the generous suspension travel, with 170 mm at the front and 160 mm at the rear. The mullet wheel setup and beefy coil shock make the bike’s intentions clear: it’s aiming for the downhill-orientated CORE MTB scene. We’ve already been able to test the bike in direct comparison with the hottest light e-mountainbikes. But on with the individual test and the original question: did the € 8,499 DECOY SN give us superpowers? But back to the original question: did the € 8,499 DECOY SN give us superpowers?

We already had the YT Decoy SN in a direct comparison test with the hottest light e-mountainbikes. You’ll be the first to read how it fared in the free E-MOUNTAINBIKE magazine in the app.

You can find out how the bike fared in test here in our sister magazine E-MOUNTAINBIKE.

About the author

Julian Schwede

Juli is used to dealing with big rigs. Besides working on his bike, he also tinkered and worked on buses after completing his training as a vehicle mechatronics engineer. Since the development of large-scale electric motors was too slow for him, he went on to study technical business administration while building carbon fibre tables on the side. Though his DJ bike is welded from thick aluminium tubes, his full-susser is made of carbon and it's already taken him to the top of numerous summits. Apart from biking, he likes climbing via ferratas or vertically on the wall. Nowadays, his personal bike gets ridden less as he tests the bikes that get sent to us, pushing them to their limits to see what they're capable of. In addition to bike reviews, Juli also takes care of the daily news and thinks of himself as the Daily Planet reporter Clark Kent.
