YT Industries have reinvigorated their line of full suspension mountain bikes with RockShox Ultimate suspension upgrades for the Izzo, Jeffsy and Capra 29ers. The new YT Blaze models are limited edition runs; 500 Izzo Blaze models are available worldwide while there will only be 300 Jeffsy Blaze and Capra Blaze bikes to go around. 

YT Blaze Models

Until now, the best RockShox shock you could get on a complete bike from YT was the Super Deluxe Select+. Though it does offer some rebound damping tuning options, there is no adjustability on the compression damping side; just a lockout or “threshold” lever for firming things up while climbing.

YT Blaze models add high-end shocks with both rebound and low speed compression adjustments

Now, the YT Blaze models change that, throwing the top-end Ultimate range of RockShox suspension into the mix for the 29″ wheeled versions of the Capra enduro bike, Jeffsy all-mountain bike and Izzo trail bike. That makes low speed compression adjustments available, allowing riders more tuning options.

The Izzo is YT’s 130mm 29er carbon trail bike. The Blaze model gets a 140mm travel RockShox Pike Ultimate fork and the RockShox Deluxe Ultimate shock. It is also updated with SRAM’s 12-speed GX Eagle 52T drivetrain. The Izzo Blaze rolls on a DT Swiss M1900 Spline wheelset and Maxxis Minion DHRII tires.

Jeffsy Blaze

The carbon Jeffsy’s 150mm of rear wheel travel is serviced by a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock on the new limited edition Blaze model. That top-end shock is married to their top-end 35mm stanchion fork; the RockShox Lyrik Ultimate. Other spec includes the 12s GX Eagle group from SRAM with 52T climbing cog, SRAM G2 RSC 4-piston brakes and a DT SWISS M1900 wheelset. The YT Jeffsy is also available in aluminium.

Capra Blaze

DH-spec SRAM Code RSC brakes provide the stopping power. It rolls on a DT Swiss E 1900 Spline wheelset with a Maxxis Assegai and Minion DHR II tire setup. YT also sell a Shred edition of the Capra with a coil shock.

Many of the YT heavy hitter are having major “bushing” play/slop on their carbon frames. My buddy just got a new Capra Alum and it uses sealed cartridge style bearings in all pivot points (but does have PF BB..)
Anyhow, Do all YT Carbon suspension frames use 1990’esque IGUS bushings??
