Expirience with the YT Capra Elite 29

YT Capra Elite 29 Review The Capra is available in all imaginable wheel options. The Capra Elite 29 rolls on big 29ers and wants to keep the speed as high as possible on the single trail. A low weight means more rideability on different terrain. If the manufacturer's indication is right, the 14,9 kg of the YT Fully counts towards the lighter Enduro that you get for under under 6000 Euro. The moderate 65 degree head tube angle ensures a balanced handling. The combination of high stack and short top tube makes the riding position pleasantly comfortable. A shout out to YT – we take our hats off, because a first-class price / performance ratio make the YT Enduro for on moderate runs a benchmark in the price range under 6000 Euro. The guarantee of 5 years proves that YT puts a lot of trust in its products.
