After Aaron Gwin has ridden the latest carbon YT Tues CF to another season of DH World Cup wins & podiums 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.

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.

  1. “After Aaron Gwin has ridden the latest carbon YT Tues CF to another season of DH World Cup wins and the overall series title”

    um…
    you sure you know what you’re talking about there? Is that really what you think happened?

  2. race results aside…

    That spec is insane for the price. A 40 Perf elite fork (which is the same as the Factory, only with [much better looking] black stanchions) on a $2700 bike?! That fork alone retails for nearly half the price of the whole bike.
    My 2015 Tues came with a Boxxer with a crappy motion control damper that retailed for less than half what this 40 does. In fact every part on this model is at least a little better, but the bike costs $200 less. And it comes in 5 sizes now, vs 3 when I got mine.

    And the claimed weight is 10# less than the actual weight on mine… well mine is a L, with heavier springs and pedals, so call it 8#. Still significant chunk of weight.

    Stuff like this is a huge counter to people complaining about the rising cost of bikes. Same model, 4 years later is better in every way including price.
