Expirience with the YT Capra Blaze 29

YT Capra Blaze 29 Review The Capra is available in all imaginable wheel options. The Capra Blaze 29 rolls on big 29ers and wants to keep the speed as high as possible on the single trail. With 15 kg, the YT Enduro counts towards the lighter bikes in this price range. The competitors are sometimes heavier. The moderate 65 degree head tube angle ensures a balanced handling. The relatively high front allows you to sit upright in the saddle. All in all, in the on very demanding single trails category, you will hardly find a better overall package from parts and geometry. With 5 years warranty, you can not go wrong.
