YT Industries Launch 2015 Range

YT Industries Launch 2015 Range

Good news, everyone!

Much lusted after YT Industries range of gravity focused bikes are now available in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and  the USA.

The New Zealand and Australian distribution will be handled by Solon Payne at Solon joined the YT family after trying to be one of the first overseas customers to order a bike and becoming a partner to make them available in Australasia along with other brands, Sensus and Deity.

The distribution for Canada and the USA will be handled by Cam and Howie Zink… yes, that Cam Zink. Cam and Howie have been heavily involved with Sensus and are now expanding their business to include YT Industries bikes.

“YT Industries builds bikes for bikers, hence it was vital for us to find partners in these markets who represent that and are dedicated bikers themselves”, says Markus Flossmann, founder and director of YT Industries.

This means that YT Industries products are available, across Europe, Switzerland, Israel, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Their chosen method of distribution and sales is direct via an online store, which YT Industries believe delivers value directly to the customer.

However… it does not end there… for along with new markets, YT Industries have launched their 2015 range of gravity focused mountain bikes.

2015 YT Industries Capra CF Blue/Black

2015 YT Industries Capra

In 2015 YT launches the first aluminium version of the Capra, that will replace the Wicked series. The enduro bike features all the performance and build quality of its carbon brother. The reach and stack, flat bar angle and steep seat angle make for a perfect rider position, while a short chain stay enhances the bike’s handling and makes the rider feel like he is a part of the bike.

Like the Tues, the Capra is equipped with a V4L suspension system, a major factor in its staggering list of past victories. The V4L system has very distinct advantages: it provides all the suspension needed for hammering down hill, without loosing efficiency on climbs. So while it meets all downhill requirements, the springs also deliver energy from the drivetrain directly to the back wheel when peddling.

Besides that, the V4L system separates the brake torque from the suspension, completely eliminating fork dive when braking.

2015 YT Industries Capra CF Carbon

The first year of this carbon enduro bike was distinguished by a load of test victories. In 2015, as well as offering a bigger choice of colours, YT Industries also introduce a new model to the Capra CF line. While the Capra Pro will be given new E13 TRSr wheels and a revised colour way, YT also built a new Capra Pro Race model, targeted at enduro racers.

The configuration speaks for itself: it’s equipped with new BOS Deville suspension forks, with 160mm of travel, FCV (Frequency Control Valve) shocks that reach new levels of performance and the new Renthal Fatbar Carbon 780mm handlebars with a Renthal Apex stem. As the cherry on top the Mavic Crossmax Enduro wheels will make for minimum times in all races.

2015 YT Industries Tues

In 2014 Andreu Lacondeguy won the toughest competition in the sport of mountain biking on his Tues, the Rampage. Team mate Cam Zink secured runner up at the same event and won Best Trick Award.

In 2015 the new wheel size 650B (27.5“) dominated the further development of the Tues by taking full advantage of the potential of this enlarged size and adjusting the downhill bike's geometry to fit perfectly. Based on the feedback from Cameron Zink and Andreu Lacondeguy the 4th generation of this successful downhill bike comes close to perfection: the hydro-formed main frame is as light and stiff as its predecessor and excels with a low focal point. The 27.5“ wheels also allow for the pedal bearings to be fixed underneath the axles.

Additionally, the geometry has been enhanced with a longer reach, to achieve the more 'centered' position of contemporary DH racing, which makes hitting jumps on gnarly trails more safe.
