29er All Mountain Trail News
2017 YT Jeffsy

The YT Jeffsy was one of the most talked about trail bikes in 2016.

Last year was a big year for YT Industries. The German direct-to-consumer brand made a big splash in the U.S., their bikes turning heads on the trail and internet. Indeed, this First Ride Review of the YT Jeffsy CF Comp 1 was one of the most read posts on Mtbr in 2016. So what do they do for an encore? How about more sizes, more component options, and some very compelling price points.

For 2017, the Young Talents Jeffsy, Capra, and Tues will all be available in a CF Pro Race version, including a new flagship “liquid metal” paint job. Another highlight is the addition of XL frame sizes for both the Capra CF and Tues CF. This should be welcome news for riders who prefer bikes with longer reach. In general, the new range offers everything from entry-level race rigs to premium builds, meaning there is something for just about every budget and riding style.

The race bike of Aaron Gwin is back for another year.

2017 YT Tues Highlights

Aaron Gwin successfully proved last year that the Tues is not only a World Cup worthy downhill bike, but that it has the pedigree to claim the top spot of the podium. That led YT to build a CF Pro Race version ($5999). FOX’s 40 Float Factory fork and Float X2 Factory shock deliver World Cup-level suspension performance. Freshly introduced to the downhill game by Gwin, the TRP Quadiem G-Spec brakes are on stopper duty for the first time this year. Carbon wheels and cranks from e*thirteen and the carbon handlebar from Renthal help keep the weight down.

The Tues CF Pro ($4499) has FOX suspension and the standard CF ($3999) comes with a RockShox BoXXer Team and Vivid RC2 shock. Finally, the Tues AL ($2899) is an affordable way to get into of downhill, offering a solid component mix at a lower price.
