An e-bike from YT? Even YT sounds incredulous about their newest ride – the Decoy. Referring to it “like downhill with a built-in shuttle,” the Decoy is clearly skewed towards aggressive riding with it featured in the “E-Enduro” category on their website.

Continuing their run of insanely high production value launch films, The Hunt is almost completely free of bikes. But it’s still worth a watch.

For something a little more bike-heavy, this clip of Adolf Silva showing that e-bikes can fly may be more appealing. Is this the first double backflip on an e-bike?

The Decoy is real - YT launches their first E-MTB

The bike itself is a beautiful carbon creation that runs a 29 x 2.4″wheel/tire up front with a 650b x 2.8″ wheel/tire in the rear, and 165mm of travel. Built around the Shimano STEPS E8000 drivetrain, the bike has a custom 540Wh battery and a STEPS E7000 display.

Available in the CF Pro Race, CF Pro, or CF Base models, the pricing ranges from $4,999 to $6,999. Available now.
