September 29, 2022 – YT Industries' roots run deep within gravity mountain biking, with DIRT LOVE and TUES playing a vital role in the brand's history. Thousands of riders of all abilities have experienced the YT gravity forward ethos aboard these two bikes. YT now enters the final phase of this portfolio evolution with the TUES CORE 4 and DIRT LOVE CORE 2.
But what is CORE? The YT range consists of two overarching categories, CORE and UNCAGED. CORE models cover a broad spectrum of builds, with the model number indicating the spec level - the higher the number, the more sophisticated and technologically advanced the bike. The introduction of the TUES CORE 4 and the DIRT LOVE CORE 2 implies there can be additional iterations of these models, both above and below the current offerings. CORE models may also be subject to running changes as newer, more innovative technologies become available. This system allows for continual improvement as the industry evolves, ensuring the YT Family consistently has access to the best performance at any given price point. In contrast, UNCAGED models boast unique builds and are limited in availability.
TUES – World Cup-winning race machine
Be it Mont Sainte-Anne, Snowshoe, Val di Sole, or Leogang, the YT TUES has not only conquered the gnarliest downhill race tracks on the World Cup circuit; it also sends intense features at Rampage, year after year. Now weeks away from the biggest freeride mountain bike event on the calendar, YT Industries introduces the first CORE model of their downhill machine. Available in 29" or 27.5" flavors, the TUES CORE 4 and its Nox Blue colorway are itching to hit the biggest kickers and blast through technical rock gardens in bike parks around the globe. This high-end build includes a phenomenal FOX 40 and FOX X2 FLOAT Factory suspension combination (200mm/203mm travel), SRAM Code RSC brakes, a SRAM X01 DH drivetrain, and a Renthal cockpit, delivering an elite ride-feel perfect for hunting PBs or throwing shapes in the park.
DIRT LOVE – Take flight & enjoy Good Times
It all started with DIRT LOVE. Closely connected with YT heritage, this steel dirt jump bike sparked the brand's journey back in 2008. Gravity-inspired DNA prevails throughout the YT range, so it only made sense to bring the new CORE model structure to the DIRT LOVE platform. As used by BMX phenom Anthony Napolitan and slopestyle-superstar Erik Fedko, you'll find the DIRT LOVE slaying events and jam sessions worldwide.
Complete with a striking Wasabi Green colorway, the DIRT LOVE CORE 2 delivers perfect performance. The premium CroMo-steel frame is crafted through a hydro-forming process, boosting its durability while eliminating excess weight. Matched by a carefully selected component spec, this bike features a RockShox Pike DJ fork and custom YT x DT Swiss wheelset. The DIRT LOVE CORE 2 is the perfect tool for riders hunting serious airtime, looking to stomp the steeziest tricks, and celebrate Good Times.
