YT Industries Decoy 29 eMTB | Everything You Need to Know.

YT Industries add a 29″ wheeled version of their Decoy eMTB with two models outfitted with Shimano’s E8000 Steps series motor and battery.

The original YT Industries Decoy was an enduro-focused, mullet eMTB, but the German direct sales brand have added their all-mountain version with big wheels at both ends, with a Pro 29 and Base models.

YT Industries’ all-mountain eMTB sports steeper angles and less travel than it’s mullet stablemate,, the original Decoy eMTB, but still provides the integrated battery and power switch, Shimano Steps E8000 motor and power pack.

A flipchip will let you change the bottom bracket height by 7mm and the head angle by half a degree, to help fine tune your preferences.

Both models in the range sport carbon frames, and come with two different spec options to suit your budget. The Pro comes in at £5999.00, while the Base model is £3999. Both available direct from YT Industries.

Colour wise, you get a TwoTone Blue and a Black Magic option on the Base, and a Ghostship green and Black Magic options on the Pro model. The size range starts at Small and goes all the way up to XXLarge.
