2020 YT Bike Range reveals new colour options

by 0

YT has refreshed its complete line of bikes for the 2020 season with fresh new colours.

The YT Bikes lineup is already pretty well rounded, being made up of every bike we can think of to keep a gravity junky smiling for a whole year. There are full-on downhill bikes, trail bikes, enduro bikes, dirt jump models, and even an e-Bike designed with gravity riders who want to self-shuttle in mind.

YT hasn’t sprung any new models on us for 2020, which is hardly surprising seeing as though the whole range was given a major update just last year, but for 2020 they have given the bikes a fresh lick of paint.

2020 YT Jeffsy

The Jeffsy trail bike comes in both 27.5 and 29in wheel sizes for 2020 but from what we can see, YT is only offering the popular Jeffsy as a carbon frame at this time.

Does this mean that the alloy Jeffsy is gone for good? Or will we see an update released later in the year?

JEFFSY is back to reign – MAXXIS tires provide superior gripJEFFSY returns for another standout year on the trails. YT’s all-mountain bike is an absolute all-rounder that lets mountain bikers own uphills and send it down technical terrain with ease. After the carbon frame ‘redefined friendship’ last year it returns this year to conquer every trail put in its path. The carbon JEFFSY is available as a Pro Race, Pro and Comp model. The frame sizes vary from S to XXL and are not necessarily defined by body size but by riding style and personal preference. Build updates for all 2020 models include SRAM Eagle drivetrains and MAXXIS tires to help manage both demanding climbs as well as fast descents and deliver perfect grip in any conditions.

2020 YT Capra

The Capra remains the goto enduro/play bike in the YT range and is still available in 27.5in and 29in wheel options using the same carbon frame that we saw on the 2019 models.

Both alloy and carbon versions of the Capra are available with build options ranging from value-packed to fully pimped.

A CAPRA to conquer trails – All models specced with full SRAM Eagle drivetrainsThe CAPRA is an absolute beast that tackles every uphill with ease while letting riders send it down the most technical downhills with steeze. Known as the GOAT for its best-in-class riding characteristics and high-end spec, YT’s enduro is available with both 27.5- and 29-inch wheels and offers 170 mm or 180 mm of travel respectively allowing it to eat rocks, roots and loam for breakfast. The CAPRA is available as a Pro Race, Pro and Comp model in 2020 and for those that prefer to hit the trails on an aluminum frame, the Base model is the bike-of-choice. Build updates for 2020 include full SRAM Eagle drivetrains for all models and depending on Pro Race, Pro, Comp and Base models RockShox or FOX front and rear suspension.

2020 YT Decoy

Again it’s just a colour change for the YT Decoy, but why would YT want to change a bike that is so perfect already? The Decoy is still the benchmark for many manufacturers wanting to build an eBike with the benefits of a powerful Shimano battery but the stealth looks of an eeb.

A DECOY is the real deal – All-new 12-speed Shimano drivetrainYT Industries sent shockwaves and turned heads in 2019 by releasing its first E-MTB. The DECOY redefines the common perception of E-MTBs and raises the bar when it comes to an agile and good-looking ride with a built-in lift. The DECOY has uncaged gravity genes and the relentless mullet build offers the best of both wheels. This unstoppable enduro bike tackles every trail and even puts a smile on your face when you head back up technical trails to drop back in again for a second helping of gravity madness. Offered in frame sizes S to XXL the Pro Race delivers a high-end spec to go with a full carbon frame whereas the Comp model has top-of-the-range components to round off the carbon front and aluminum rear triangle. Build updates for 2020 include the high-powered 12-speed Shimano drivetrain.

2020 YT Tues

It’s a choice of both alloy and carbon again for the Tues, with either choice of wheel size too. We expect to see a lot more of this iconic downhill bike during the 2020 season underneath the new YT Mob riders, we also wonder if the ex-Insync team will keep their Tues bikes for another year?

TUES with style – 10 years of going all-outProven on the World Cup tracks around the world and with four World Cup titles on its CV, the TUES is ready to drop into the gnarliest trails our planet has to offer. YT’s ruthless downhill bike is celebrating its 10-year anniversary in 2020 and will do so by destroying rock gardens and ploughing over roots all day long. The TUES will also be the go-to-ride for both the YT Mob and two-time Junior World Champion Vali Höll during the World Cup season 2020. The TUES is available with a 27.5-inch wheel as a Pro (carbon), Comp (aluminum) and Base (aluminum) model in sizes S to XXL whereas the 29-inch TUES comes with a high-end Pro Race (carbon) and Pro (carbon) build in sizes Regular, Long and X-Long.

2020 YT Dirt Love

The whole reason for YT starting as a bike brand is because of low-cost dirt-jump bikes so it makes sense for the Dirt Love to return for 2020. This simple yet effective dirt jumper runs on 26in wheels only (well duh) runs singles peed and just a rear brake.

DIRT LOVE for Dirt LoversThe DIRT LOVE is the gravity defying dirt jump bike from YT. If Cork 7’s, Double Backflips and Triple Tailwhips are part of your weekly or even daily routine, then this is the bike you’re looking for. The DIRT LOVE is the longest YT Family member, being the origin of what YT is today. Because of the heritage and meaning the bike has for the direct selling brand from Germany, it is developed with a lot of passion. Combining agility and ruggedness the bike comes in size options regular and long.
