YT Releases CAPRA and DECOY

June 26, 2020 – Forchheim, Germany: YT has reacted to the calls for high-performance spec’d aluminum bikes and coil shocks by releasing two new beasts. The CAPRA and DECOY Shred models raise the bar for Enduro rigs this year boasting the newest suspension technology by FOX. Both bikes cater to the needs of true shredders and big hitters.

"We are super stoked to launch these two enduro machines! We have a burning passion for gravity riding and can’t wait to send these beasts through bike parks, over trails and big hits. After releasing limited versions of the CAPRA in the past two years, it was time to include a high-performance aluminum model within our regular range again. We also saw the need to offer a ‘coil version’ of the DECOY. Both the CAPRA Shred and DECOY Shred will let you rule the trails.” – Markus Flossmann, CEO YT Industries
