YT Industries adds an Elite Build of Their Capra and Decoy Mountain Bike Models

The German brand's most popular electric enduro bikes receive a component upgrade.

YT Industries has a new Elite level build option on offer for their most popular muscle- and battery-powered enduro bikes.

The full carbon Capra Elite 29 is available in sizes medium to XXL with the same gravity-focused geometry as the other 2020 builds. The Elite build includes a 170mm Fox 38 Factory fork, a Fox X2 Factory shock to handle its 170mm of rear axle travel, and a matching Fox Transfer Factory dropper post. The big rig pedals on a SRAM X01 drivetrain with their new 10-52t cassette, and slows with the ever-powerful SRAM Code RSC 4-piston brakes. The top tier build is priced at €/$5.999 and is finished off with a sturdy pair of e*thirteen LG1 Race Carbon wheels, gripping the ground with a Maxxis Assegai EXO tire up front, and Minion DHR II with an EXO+ casing out back.

The battery-powered 170/165mm Decoy Elite build receives all of the same Fox beer-colored Factory components and Code RSC brakes, and swaps in a Shimano XT drivetrain. The Shimano motor pushes watts into a set of Crankbrothers Synthesis E11 wheels, with the same tires as the Capra–but the rear is 27.5+ on the Decoy.

The Decoy Elite retails for €/$6,999, and both bikes are available from mid August to late September depending on the bike and region.
