The Capra Mk III Core 2 strikes an almost perfect price-to-performance ratio for the cash-conscious enduro rider

Pros
  1. supportive suspension
  2. Easy to set up
  3. intuitive ride feel and addictive cornering
Cons
  1. Geometry could be slacker, lower, and longer
  2. tyre casings thin for enduro use

YT's cheapest Capra gets a killer parts package and an alloy frame... can it match the stellar performance of the carbon models though?

Pros
  1. Great spec for the price, and the geometry is decent too. Easy to get set up on and the bike is well balanced and composed
Cons
  1. I'm missing the X2 shock from the Core 4 bike

Unlike other manufacturers, YT decided not to take us up on our offer to customise the bike for our bikepark group test. Unfortunately, this left us stuck with the standard tires which are flimsy and prevent you from unlocking the full potential of the bike...

Pros
  1. precise handling
  2. intuitive handling saves energy, both physically and mentally
  3. protective frame tape as standard
Cons
  1. weak tires
  2. poor stability at high speeds and over big jumps
  3. long seat tube limits freedom of movement
  4. progressive rear suspension complicates setup

The Capra is back, and now there's room for water bottle.
