CAPRA® 29 CF Framekit
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 both worlds. The new CAPRA delivers the most advanced combination of trail bike agility and traction at downhill standard. The metric 230 shock delivers the solid suspension travel of the CAPRA with a low transmission ratio, and fully convinces with a performance that's hardly ever seen away from downhill courses.
The Frame. For the new generation of the CAPRA we have fine-tuned our much-acclaimed Virtual 4 Link suspension system even further. We adopt the downhill principle due to the low transmission and thus create the characteristics of V4L: an off-the-top sensitivity, even more ample mid-stroke support than before and a progressive ending stroke.
V4L not only gives you the confidence to hit big gaps and rugged terrain at speed, it also makes pedalling super-efficient. Additionally we have optimized the kinematics to further reduce the influence of pedalling forces. The result is an outstanding climbing efficiency with optimum climbing position and neutral riding behaviour - providing the perfect riding experience.

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 your a bike with a little more pop out of corners.
The seat angle of the new CAPRA is perfectly adjusted to a well-balanced pedalling position, allowing for maximum riding efficiency and pedalling prowess. The slack headtube angle and short chain stays, which again are adapted for each frame size, deliver the most advanced combination of trail bike agility and traction at downhill standard.
