For Black Friday, YT has brushed up a raw aluminum, 100% carbon-free version of their popular 27.5, 180mm travel Capra enduro bike, offering it direct in a very limited numbered run. If you are the type of rider who pedals to the top and smashes your bike down the other side, act fast to get ahold of a Capra 27 AL Limited Edition.
YT Capra 27 AL Limited Edition, 100% carbon-free enduro bike
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.
YT Capra 27 AL Ltd, 27.5″ wheels, 180mm of travel – Tech Details
Beyond the raw finish and no-carbon spec, this is the same 180mm travel, 27.5″ wheeled Capra enduro mountain bike that YT debuted last February with the Return of the Goat.
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).
YT says they put special attention into these bikes with quality workmanship you can see in the multi-butted and hydroformed alloy tubeset that has nowhere to hide in this raw aluminum look.
