Deep in the Singletrack merch laboratory we have been experimenting late into the night with our top secret Franken-project. And now we are super excited to reveal our creation. We…
YT has taken 3 existing bikes and added a little ‘blaze’ to them with limited edition Izzo, Jeffsy and Capra bikes.
YT Industries has taken the Izzo, Jeffsy and Capra bikes and built them into limited-edition Blaze bikes with just 250 Izzo Blaze available and only 150 of the Capra and Jeffsy Blaze bikes coming to the market.
YT Izzo Blaze
The efficient down-country Izzo gets the Blaze treatment meaning an increase in fork travel to 140mm from 130mm and a switch to a RockShox Deluxe Ultimate rear shock. The changes should boost the Izzo’s gravity credentials and also sees the lightweight bike fitted with a pair of Maxxis Minion DHR II tires.

YT Jeffsy Blaze
The Jeffsy Blaze is even more limited with just 150 of these special edition bikes going on sale.
YT is only offering the Blaze build in the 29er chassis which rocks 150mm travel upfront via a Lyrik Ultimate fork, with a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate take care of the rear travel. The beefed-up suspension package is fitted to the same carbon frameset but comes built up with a pair of DT Swiss M1900 wheels and Maxxis Minion DHF and DHR I tyres, a SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain and cockpit made up of a Renthal Fatbar 35 and Sensus Lite Grips.

YT Capra Blaze
The GOAT is the most popular YT bike and ideal for big hitters! The CAPRA Blaze 29 is available in frame sizes M to XXL and caters to the needs of bike park rats and enduro enthusiasts alike. The ‘Blaze’ model variation enables maximum adjustability and 170mm of travel thanks to the RockShox ZEB Ultimate fork up front and RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock in the rear. This gravity-greedy bike excels on the downhill and will overcome any obstacle with ease while the SRAM Code RSC brakes offer the perfect modulation and braking power you need. Despite its downhill focus, this enduro rig is a capable climber, and the new 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle 52T with its greater range improves the uphill characteristics. Big jumps and highly technical terrain require wheels and tires that live up to heavy-duty riding and big impacts. The DT Swiss E 1900 Spline wheelset and MAXXIS Assegai and Minion DHR II tire setup do just that. The package is completed with the YT Postman dropper post, Renthal Fatbar 35, and Sensus Swayze grips.
