YT Industries Launch Capra Core 1 & Core 2 GX Models.

The YT Capra range gets two models at the base end of the spectrum with the starting point for the Mk III Capra now £2,699.

Two fresh alloy YT Industries Capra models are now available, the baseline Core 1 and the Core 2 GX, with the entry point to the Capra range now just £2,699.

Alloy Capras from YT Industries are nothing new with the previous Capra Core 2 being the lowest priced Capra at £3,099. With the addition of the Core 1, that now drops to £2,699. Offering that 170mm travel platform in either MX or 29″ wheels depending on your preferences.

The Capra Core 1 essentially shoves the Core 2 up a notch, the base model sporting Rockshox Zeb Base forks, Rockshox Super Deluxe Select R shock, SRAM NX Eagle drive and DB8 brakes. The Core 2 bumps the drivetrain up to SRAM GX Eagle, dampers are Fox Performance units and you get SRAM Code R anchors. The higher spec model comes in at £3,299.

Geometry remains much the same, with sizes running from Small to XXL.
