IZZO UNCAGED 11

IZZO

Fast by rights. Sharp by design. Agile by nature. Izzo Uncaged 11 embodies the katana sword and lays claim to your local trails with ruthless efficiency. At the heart of the Ultra Modulus Carbon frame is the Öhlins TTX1 air shock, delivering 130mm of controlled rear travel through the V4LR kinematic, while up front is revered RXF36 M.2 with 140mm of travel. Both these units utilize Öhlins’ world-renowned twin-tube damping technology with rebound and high and low-speed compression adjustment. New for 2023, SRAM’s latest groupset release is in the mix – GX Eagle AXS Transmission. Robust ratio changes under maximum power are now possible, allowing you to dig deep with confidence.

Crankbrothers Synthesis XTC carbon wheels are another standout specification. The Synthesis philosophy utilizes unique front and rear carbon layups, rim widths, and spoke counts, improving handling, maximizing grip, and enhancing speed. Grip is further improved through a move to capable Maxxis Minion DHR II tires, while four-piston SRAM G2 RSC brakes with bite point adjustment feature. Completing the finishing kit is a Race Face Next carbon bar and turbine stem combo, ODI grips, an SDG Bel Air 3.0 saddle, and a RockShox Reverb AXS dropper post.

CAPRA UNCAGED 11

CAPRA MX

If you seek a mixed-wheel hitter that brings traction and composure to the trail, the Capra Uncaged 11 is for you. Continuing the electric yellow theme, the High Modulus carbon frame features 170mm of travel at each end – this time with the Öhlins RXF38 M.2 fork up front and Öhlins TTX22 M coil shock in the rear. Borrowing technology from its bigger DH brother, the RXF38 M.2 uses a triple air chamber to tune beginning, mid, and end stroke characteristics, while the damper enables all forms of compression adjustment. Crankbrothers provide the Synthesis Enduro carbon wheelset, wrapped with a robust Maxxis Minion Assegai and DHR II tire combo. This model packs premium rubber straight out of the box too – a Double Down rear casing and sticky MaxxGrip compound up front. For shifting, SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed Transmission features, and the wireless theme continues with the proven RockShox AXS dropper post. YT isn't one to cut corners, and this rider-focused spec rounds out with an E*Thirteen TRS Plus chainguide, SRAM Code RSC brakes, and a factory spec Renthal cockpit.

TUES UNCAGED 11

TUES 27

After some pure unadulterated downhill fun? There’s no replacement for displacement when it comes to travel – sporting 200mm of suspension all round with 27.5” wheels, the Tues Uncaged 11 is here for huge hits at lightning speed. Featuring a hydroformed aluminum frame available across 5 sizes, this Tues is built for an extensive height range of big hitters and speed seekers. The flagship Öhlins DH38 dual crown fork uses the same triple air chamber and damping technology as its little RXF38 brother, as well as the TTX22 M coil sitting at the heart of the bike for maximum performance. Commanding the cockpit is a Renthal Fatbar and Integra stem combo, with SRAM Code RSC brakes, ODI lock on grips and SDG I-Fly saddle. Protecting the SRAM XO1 7 speed downhill specific groupset and keeping shifting sweet is an E*Thirteen TRS chain device with bashguard. This time Crankbrothers Synthesis wheels are rocking an aluminum material too, suited and booted with MAXXIS Assegai’s in the stickiest MaxxGrip compound front and rear.

 The Tues build is properly sick for the price. Makes a joke out of >$6k for a supreme V5 ohlins build.

 I was just thinking this. The V5 has cheaper parts spec'd for almost $3K CAD more.

 @smokey101: damn the CAD$ price is insane, Ohlins, X01/RSC for $6k CAD in 2023 is nuts... wish I had the time to ride Whistler more to justify a DH bike.

 Anyone have experience with YT's customer service/warranty/wait times in Canada? Looking at this bike for my brother, he's a heavy set guy at 6"5 and 265lb with riding gear on. He's rides hard and has damaged 3/4 last frames he's had so just wanting to know once the inevitable happens how it is to deal with YT. I feel that when modern bikes are tested real time on the world cup circuit we often don't see riders over 200lb if at all.

 @fullsend604: I bought a YT Izzo back in March. It was "in-stock" at the time and arrived in Toronto within a week.

I had one "issue" with the frame (small paint chip) and they addressed my situation within 24 hours. Offered a full refund, exchange, or a $100 coupon to use towards their store. Gave me all the realistic/reasonable options up tfont for me to choose without me having to "fight" for anything. I'd say that's good customer service these days.

 @fullsend604: I have a 6’4 240lbs friend that has been riding a YT Jeffsy for 3 years now and never cracked a frame. He did cracked 1 X01 crank, 1 XX1 crank, 1 Renthal Carbon Fatbar and 1 Pivot Mach 5.5 frame, so it’s not that he isn’t riding hard.

All of the items (apart from Pivot’s frame obviously) have been taken care of by YT’s warranty quickly and without any issue.

 @fullsend604: Never needed warranty support in the past 8 years on 2 YTs

 @philaf: I bought an Izzo and was kind of worried about customer service because all of the negative feedback on the internet, I had a few small issues after assembling it and Yt took care of them quickly. I’m 6ft 1 230 and the bike has great.

 Back around 1999-2001 when you had loads of £250-400 full suspension bikes like the Saracen Raw etc
The Barracuda Slalom is uncanny haha

 I love my Izzo core 3. The new shiny colors are nice though. I like that the geometry is unchanged from previous models. It's a solid all around bike already.
  • 5 0
 Yeah kinda appreciate that they stick to the current geometry and don’t feel that they have to change something every second year.
The new color is really cool
  • 5 0
 Capra deal is smokin for that spec
  • 4 0
 That Capra is an insane value. The suspension, dropper, wheels, and drivetrain would cost $5400 by themselves without tax.

 20 years ago, we used to buy the cheap online bikes (radon) just to pit the components on a proper frame. Was the cheapest way to get full XTR and a pair of crossmaxxes.
  • 1 0
 Does anyone else just not fit on a YT trail bike? I have shorter legs and a longer torso, so the short reach and tall seat tube don't work for me. I would have to run a super short dropper that would be super in the way

Damn these look good though! might need that DH bike

 well if they build bikes for mutants then what would us, normies ride?

 I really like the paint job...but oddly enough I have seen this specific color combo several times this week. I have mostly seen it on cars. Is there any sort of meaning behind it?

 I wish it came in a mullet set up. Id be swiping my card right now if it did

 That Capra is the mullet

 love that its 27.5

 Time to swipe left

 I know this can "work"...but its strange to see the Izzo spec'd with a DHRII 2.4" WT tire on a 26.5/24.5mm wheelset. Even Maxxis recommends the WT tires to be used on 30MM+. And the non-WT version for 30mm wheels.
  • 2 3
 that tues is quite an old frame now, i know cause i have one i got when they came out like 6 years ago. yt has really gone downhill since the PE acquisition which is to be be expected. but seriously, dont buy YTs anymore, they just arent worthy. someone needs to take their place, hopefully propain can step up

 Does the down tube to seat post tube support on the Capra bug anyone else or is it just me?
looks good from one side but its ugly AF from the other

 When they teased it on social media yesterday, I certainly was hoping for an upgraded Capra…

 Maybe the Jeffsey is next considering they left it out of this group

 @DCF: Jeffsy has to get a refresh soon, it's time after 5 years now.

 @masira: And is still one of my fave bikes. I've got one of the newer Scor's and a Capra and still go back to my Jeffsy. Was planning on selling it but just couldn't do it. Great geo, super playful. Hard to fault.

 @daugherd: true words! Still regret selling my Jeffsy Blaze. Aged really well!

 @daugherd: yup still have 1. Love the 77° sa and sizing of the xl(most others L). Add that it works well in so many diff configurations(170-140 forks/air&coil rear)

 @jrocksdh: mines 160 /150 65’ish hta 470’ish reach. Super fun, really capable trail bike. I’ve taken it all over BC, through out the Giff in WA and in some flatter zones in Central OR. Did well.
