YT bikes have always looked good, and now YT has just upped the ante with a new, limited-edition Capra 27 AL in raw aluminum. It goes beyond just a fresh frame too—YT has made the entire bike completely carbon-fiber free while speccing it like they would their top-tier models.
The frame shares the same geometry as the regular Capra 27, YT just foregoes the painting process for a unique look for YT. The raw Capra is dressed up in the only the finest of offerings, including full Fox Factory suspension, a 36 fork and DHX2 shock, as well as a Kashima-coated Transfer post. The travel is bumped up to 180 millimeters in the front, which slackens things out a bit more than the stock 170 millimeters found on regular Capra 27s.
A set of e*Thirteen tires and TRS+ aluminum wheels keep the Capra rolling carbon-free, and a Shimano/e*Thirteen mixed drivetrain handles the power transfer in typical YT fashion. When it comes time to shut it down, a set of SRAM Code RSC brakes with 200-millimeter rotors are your best friends.
Price is yet unannounced, and for further information visit YT’s website here. The limited edition Capra will be available as long as the stock of 100 bikes last, so if you want one you’d better act fast.
