CAPRA® 27 AL Base
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.
The AL Base is the entry level of the CAPRA fleet but it comes equipped with components that will also allow experienced riders to have plenty of Good Times on the trails. With 170 mm of travel, the RockShox Lyrik RC fork and the RockShox Super Deluxe R shock are more than ready for any challenge you might face out there.
The modern geometry combines the best of two worlds: the slack headangle and the long wheelbase ensure plenty of straightline stability, while the short chainstays give the CAPRA 27 its appetite for jumping, its agility, and its unlimited greed for corners and berms. Thanks to our usual low leverage ratio, the V4L kinematics deliver performance rarely seen outside a pure DH bike. It knows no limitations, the CAPRA 27 AL Base is a pure descending machine. From flowtrails to rough downhill tracks - there is nothing it can’t do.
Setting up and handling the AL Base is child’s play even for beginners, thanks to components that are particularly easy to use. The suspension is from RockShox: with 170 mm of travel, the Lyrik RC is a real weapon for demanding enduro riders, while the Super Deluxe R provides all the traction and control you need for taking on new adventures.
The 12-speed SRAM Eagle drivetrain provides a wide range of gears with smooth and precise shifting to make sure you can deal with any terrain. The SRAM Code R brakes offer great modulation with consistent braking power in any situation. The SDG Tellis dropper post and the robust DT Swiss E1900 wheels complete the build of the CAPRA AL Base.

The CAPRA 27 is the enduro bike for all those looking for the agility of a trail bike with the reserves of a downhill bike. Outstanding uphill capabilities and maximum downhill performance are no longer mutually exclusive, thanks to the unique geometry of the CAPRA 27. A slack headangle and long reach allow us to interpret the enduro segment in our usual fun-loving way, while the potent travel reserves let the CAPRA sit on the trail like a real DH bike. Bike park, enduro racing or trail riding: with the CAPRA you are fully equipped to handle any terrain.
Thanks to the short chainstays the CAPRA loves to jump and remains agile, even in the tightest corners. Also the bigger frame sizes keep things lively and balanced, due to the chainstay length that is adapted to each size. Additionally, the short seat tube lets you chose the frame size according to your personal taste. From moderate to extra long reach, the decision no longer depends on your body’s dimensions but rather on your riding style and preferences.
