The all-new YT Industries Capra Enduro MTB is now available, and we couldn’t wait to get our hands on one of the beasts. Introducing the 2018 YT Capra AL Comp 27.5 with our unboxing/ build-up feature.
A big shout-out you goes out to Dirt Merchant for accommodating us with this build. Make sure to hit them up with any of your Gravity Mountain Biking needs – Website | Facebook Page.
On opening the box you are immediately welcomed to the YT family and an aura of quality trail smashing pleasure is eminent. The bike comes pre-built with a manufacturers check-list – all that needs to be bolted on are the wheels and handlebars. With a few rider preference adjustments, you are ready to go. YT have also included a very cool ICETOOLZ Tool Kit with every bike, and comes in handy with its Shock Pump, Torque Wrench, Allen Key and Anti-Slip Paste.
The all-new CAPRA is a full-on downhill machine crossed with the uphill performance of a trail bike. The modern geometry with short chainstays and a slack headtube angle perfectly unites the best of two worlds.
