Forchheim, Germany, April 29, 2014 - YT Industries does not completely kick aluminum out of its Enduro program and today presents the WICKED 650B in 3 new designs and specifications. In all 3 versions the WICKED delivers an exceptional price / value ratio, because here you get a top Enduro bike with the acclaimed V4L (virtual 4 Link) kinematic system and top parts for a very fair price. And yes, we are speaking about the well proven and tested WICKED frame.
The WICKED 650B and WICKED 650B Comp both come with RockShox's highly regarded Pike fork and Monarch damper. These 2 bikes both provide 160mm travel front and rear. The Comp model is rolling on the Pike RCT3 and the Monarch+, while the WICKED 650B rocks the trails with the Pike RC and the Monarch RT3.
The main difference between the base model and the Comp is the drive train. The WICKED Comp is delivered with the modern SRAM XO1 and a Race Face turbine crankset - good enough to be called a racing machine. The basic WICKED 650B with its SRAM X-9 drive train offers enough possibilities and gears for long Enduro tours with steep ascents, at an unbeatable price.
The WICKED Pro, like it's carbon cousin the CAPRA Pro, comes with high end suspension directly from France: BOS. And like the CAPRA Pro, the Wicked Pro delivers 170mm travel front and rear. The specification of the Pro, consisting of SRAM XO1 drive train, E13 TRS+ wheels and the perfect feeling BOS Deville fork and BOS Kirk rear shock means this aluminum bike is still a serious competitor in any Enduro race. And of course also for your spare time fun-filled Enduro trip – you will be pretty fast to the pub for an after ride beer.
WICKED 650B: 2,099 €
WICKED Comp 650B: 2,599 €
WICKED Pro 650B: 2,999 €
