Developed for those who eschew composites on their trail bike, the YT Capra 27 AL Limited Edition sticks with alloy version of the popular consumer-direct enduro bike, in a unique limited time only raw aluminum finish. And then to top it off YT builds the bike up with a premium spec of lightweight, durable alloy components.

A super high-performance, aggressive aluminum bike, the YT Capra 27 AL Limited Edition is seriously limited. Only 200 bikes have been made, with half hitting the market in Europe & the other half in the USA.

Longer, slacker & lower than the previous generation, YT calls it “a full-blown DH machine with the climbing prowess of a trail bike”.

Geometry mixes those tendencies, developed with short chainstays, a long wheelbase & slack modern trail geometry for riders “looking for the liveliness of a trail bike with the suspension travel reserves of a downhill bike”. The Capra 27 AL LTD is available in five stock sizes (S-XXL).
