YT recently added more shreddable options to their line-up of the 29″ Capra enduro bike and Decoy mullet eMTB – the Shred models got the linear performance of the newest Fox DHX2 coil damper. With the launch of the new Fox Factory X2 Air Shock, YT saw fit to add an “elite” model to the line-up. The rear ends of both the YT Capra Elite and YT Decoy Elite will now be serviced by this top-level air shock, paired with the new Fox 38 Float Factory fork.

We have the spec, pricing and claimed weights right here.

YT Capra Elite & Decoy Elite w/Fox Factory X2 Air Shock


YT wanted the model options of the YT Capra and YT Decoy to be bang up to date – that’s why they are now offering Elite models of both enduro bikes. The Elite models take in the “latest industry developments and gives riders the best tools to get the job done”. The main selling point of the Elite models will be the 2021 Fox Factory X2 Air Shock and burly 38 mm stanchion Fox Factory Float fork.

YT Capra Elite

The Capra is YT Industries’ 29″ enduro bike featuring 170 mm suspension travel front and rear. In addition to the 2021 FOX FLOAT X2 shock and top-end Factory FLOAT 38 fork, the new YT Capra Elite model gets a host of high-end components to match.


The carbon frame rolls on E*Thirteen’s LG1 Race EN Carbon wheelset. The 31 mm internal width rims are home to a Maxxis Assegai 2.5″ WT EXO tire up front and a Minion DHRII with tougher EXO+ casing out back.


The YT Capra Elite is driven by the new SRAM X01 Eagle 52 drivetrain with 520% gear ratio for cleaning the steepest of climbs. That’s with the Descendant Carbon crankset and a 32T chainring. SRAM’s DH spec Code RSC brakes provide the stopping power, with 200 mm rotors front and rear.
