s & podium s and the overall series title, now you can get all the same downhill performance in the more affordable aluminum version – a new YT Tues AL. All the tech comes direct from the carbon DH race bike, just with an extra 2kg and a savings of at least 1300€!

Developed to be just as fast as the YT Tues CF that The YT Mob pros race on, the new Tues AL shares the same suspension kinematics and geometry of the carbon bike in a much more attainable platform. While the latest Tues revamp earlier this year was definitely designed to give Gwin an edge on the World Cup DH circuit, YT also worked with Rampage superstars Cam Zink and Andreu Lacondeguy to make the new bike just as capable free riding off monster drops and crazy gap jumps.
With low, low & slack modern geometry the bike is capable of anything you are brave enough to try, then with revised fits that let riders pick from a compact to a stretched out fit to suit their individual riding style.
YT Tues AL Tech Details
The Tues AL shares the same 200mm of low leverage ratio Virtual 4-link (true Horst-link four-bar) suspension travel as Aaron Gwin’s World Cup winning carbon bike, and is paired with a 203mm Fox DH fork.
The 7005-T6 aluminum frame itself is extensively butted and hydroformed to create a light & strong bike, but also to carry over the same look refined on the latest Tues CF.
The 27.5″ wheeled DH bike is available in two colors – Fallout yellow or Dust grey over a dark coal grey – and has a claimed weight of 17.2kg/37.9lb (S w/o pedals). The bike comes in a five size range (S-XXL) with lots of standover that YT says allows most riders to pick from 2 or 3 possible frame sizes to get the exact cockpit length they prefer.
Complete Bike Spec, Pricing & Availability
The aluminum Tues AL comes in a single complete bike build for $2700 / 2700€, with a SRAM GX DH 1x + e*thirteen 7-speed 9-21t cassette, Fox 40 Float Performance Elite fork & Van Performance rear shock, TRP Quadium brakes, and e*thirteen LG1 alloy wheels with 2.4″ Onza Aquila tires.
The new 2019 Tues AL alloy DH bike is available to order now direct from YT, with most bikes expecting to ship before the end of Sept 2018.
