YT Updates Range for 2017

by 1

Last year saw the introduction of the YT JEFFSY, along with a controversial marketing campaign. Perhaps we should be thankful then that there are no new bikes being launched by YT, instead there’s just an update to the existing range.

There are new CF Pro Race versions of the JEFFSY, CAPRA and TUES.

New CF Pro Race editions added to line up

Finished in a new ‘Liquid Metal’ paintjob, the CF Pro Race bikes come with Fox Float Factory suspension and high end finishing kit like the Renthal Fatbar Carbon.

JEFFSY CF Pro Race: £3,799

Big 29er wheels and 140mm travel, the JEFFSY is the trail bike in the YT line up.

CAPRA CF Pro Race: £3,799

Go enduro with the CAPRA – 170mm of travel and 27.5in wheels.

TUES CF Pro Race: £4,299

Or go full rad with the downhill TUES machine. 203mm travel up front, 208mm at the rear, and 27.5in wheels.

The JEFFSY and CAPRA will now be available in a new XL size, so the giants among us can now play out too. The XL JEFFSY offers an extra 20mm of reach over its L little brother (it’s YT, it’s definitely male), and the XL CAPRA offers an extra 15mm of reach.

Head over to YT Industries for all the details. The bikes are available to order now and will be on sale in April.

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    The Jeffsy adverts were hardly “controversial”…
