CAPRA® 27 AL
YT TAILOR MADE
Throughout all CAPRA bikes sizes we offer a low seatpost height in combination with seatposts, that are specifically matched to each of the bike sizes. Therefore riders can now choose between 2 to a maximum of 3 different frame sizes for their body height. This allows you to get exactly the reach, you would like to ride. Not matter whether you are you are opting for reach that's more moderate or extra long. It's like your bike is tailormade for you. By opting for the longer reach, experienced riders can adjust the weight distribution more precisely to each riding condition. However you need to be experienced in order to make the correct choice: in case your are unsure we recommend to stick to the perfect medium of the size references given in the size finder.
Once again the CAPRA is setting new standards.
Confidence, creativity, endurance: this G.O.A.T. will get you and it will turn you into the rider you have always aspired to be. And true to our core, we keep pushing boundaries: 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. The new CAPRA delivers the most advanced combination of trail bike agility and traction at downhill standard. The metric 250mm shock delivers the solid suspension travel of the CAPRA with a low leverage ratio and fully convinces with a performance that's hardly ever seen away from downhill courses.
The 170mm RockShox Lyrik RC and the RockShox Super Deluxe R is a powerful combination for demanding enduro riders, offering excellent traction for any terrain.
The new 1x11 e*thirteen TRS+ cassette boasting a 511% gear range, outperforms traditional 12-speed transmissions by 11%, is much easier to adjust and distinctly more durable. With its 9-46 teeth sprockets it’s the first choice when it comes to aggressive trail riding and rough race runs.
The e*thirteen TRS+ dropper post with a remote lever shaped like a shifter offers four pre-set seatpost height positions with super smooth adjustment. We use a short seatpost for the S sized frames to ensure sufficient standover height for smaller riders. The SRAM Code R brake delivers power and good modulation, while the lever offers adjustable reach - excellent performance not matter what's ahead of you on the trail.

Our focus in the development process has always been to create the perfect weight distribution and optimum rider position. So for 2018, YT Tailor Made is taking things a step further.
Throughout all CAPRA bikes sizes we offer a low seatpost height in combination with seatposts, that are specifically matched to each of the bike sizes. Therefore riders can now choose between 2 to a maximum of 3 different frame sizes for their body height. Whether you prefer a moderate or long reach - you now have true freedom of choice. It's like your frame has been tailormade for you. By opting for the longer reach, experienced riders can adjust the weight distribution more precisely while the standard reach will give you a bike with a little more pop out of corners.
The seat angle of the new CAPRA is perfectly adjusted to a well-balanced pedaling position, allowing for maximum riding efficiency and pedaling prowess. The slack headtube angle and short chainstays, which again are adapted for each frame size, deliver the most advanced combination of trail bike agility and traction at downhill standard.
