It is no coincidence that we named our enduro bike CAPRA, i.e. goat. Because just like a goat, the CAPRA feels particularly at home in rough terrain. Aggressive design and fun-oriented geometry promise Good Times as of the first glance. A promise that is fulfilled once you get on the bike, because the CAPRA is what you make of it: A downhill bike that can also carry you back up the mountain, an enduro bike that rocks any bike park - truly a bike for any mission. This hardy beast provides plenty of stability and control, and goes around corners as if by itself. All new for 2017 is the much-anticipated CAPRA CF in XL, which riders above 1,87 m in height will enjoy. So, get off the brakes and pin it!

    The heart of the CAPRA AL is the hydro formed aluminum frame with carbon seat stays. To optimize the frame weight the tubes are multi-butted. The tube walls have been given extra thickness where required to stand up to the strong forces generated in critical areas. Or to talk plainly: 165-mm of quality suspension travel coupled with neutral riding characteristics and an optimal climbing position make for that perfect ride feel.

    The V4L rear linkage is our proven recipe for providing a linear and sensitive suspension response. Developed by YT, critically acclaimed and often prized, V4L is progressive throughout the travel to prevent excessive sagging and harsh bottom outs. It holds you up in the travel and reacts only when it’s supposed to, namely to overcome obstacles on the trail and not under the influence of pedaling forces. This helps making the CAPRA a weapon on the uphill too. A slack head angle and 650B (27.5”) wheels contribute to the extreme directional stability of the CAPRA and make it seem like it has even more travel. To make sure the bike doesn’t mutate into a sluggish mothership, we kept the chain stays on the short side. All in all, the CAPRA lets you feel like you are really sitting in the bike.

    The CAPRA AL is an entry-level bike with a well-balanced component selection that provides young talents on a budget a proper tool for getting into the discipline of enduro. Featuring the reliable RockShox Lyrik RC 170 fork and the super supple RockShox Monarch Plus R, the CAPRA AL’s suspension is as plush as they come. SRAM’s Guide R brakes front and rear help you safely come to a stop when things get rowdy, and even for this entry level build, we rely on proven technology from SRAM for the 1x11 drivetrain as well. All in all an unbeatable package that lets you rip on the roughest of trails.

    Agility and speed, sturdiness and safety – just like its namesake, the goat, our CAPRA is an all-round talent. It sprints downhill, climbs uphill and feels amazing on any terrain. Whether it’s flying through flow trails or speeding past the competition at enduro races; trail-surfers will just feel as comfortable on the CAPRA as the racers. The CAPRA is definitely the right weapon if you want to conquer mountains and blast down the trails at full speed. Big hits, bike parks and even North Shore missions won’t phase it. Only if you’re planning on taking on the gnarliest of jumps is it time to take a look at the CAPRA’s big bro, the TUES. One more thing: If you enjoy hitting jumps and riding very aggressive trails with your enduro, make sure you check your bike for damages after every ride. Keeping up with the recommended maintenance intervals will also keep you and your bike smiling for a long time.
