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

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

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.

Danny Milner

YT's latest twist on the Capra is an alloy mullet bike with a boutique spec and a relatively modest price tag. We find out if all that glitters is gold.

Pros
  1. Desirable spec, adjustable suspension, friendly geometry, good price 
Cons
  1. Tricky to get set-up, cable routing could be better, seat tube could be shorter to make it easier to size up, flip chip is pointless

A one-bike quiver suited to enduro, all-mountain and trail with performance enhanced by RockShox Flight Attendant

Pros
  1. Slick looks; lightweight build; top-performing parts; Flight Attendant improves performance rather than adding unnecessary complication
Cons
  1. Slightly compromised geometry on gnarlier enduro tracks; suspension might be too progressive for some; massively expensive
