YT CAPRA 27.5 AL
TThe Capra is an enduro classic, famous for blitzing descents, railing berms and taking gaps. It comes in two guises: as a 29er, or in its original incarnation with 27.5-inch hoops.
Bigger wheels have become de rigueur on the gravity scene, but we like the 27.5 version because it’s unashamedly wild. Modern, longtravel 29ers might smooth everything out, but the Capra doesn’t like smooth. It likes loose.
This alloy model is the most affordable in the Capra range, and it’s excellent value: 170mm RockShox Lyric fork, 170mm RockShox SuperDeluxe shock, SRAM Code brakes and 511% 1x drivetrain with Shimano and E*Thirteen parts.
If you wear a full-face helmet and you don’t want to remortgage your house to buy your next bike, the Capra AL is a winner.
