YT Capra 29 Core 4 is 165mm enduro bike with 170mm fork, slack geometry, and bottle-ready full carbon frame. New Capra comes as a race-focused 29er, or a mullet park bike with 5mm more travel. Faster, more capable, easier to pedal... and somewhere to stash a...

Pros
  1. Improved suspension characteristics for downhill, and better pedalling position for uphill. The bike feels more comfortable, planted and also faster than the old 29in bike. The water bottle is a nice bonus.
Cons
  1. The price has crept up £1,150.

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.
