TUES CF Framekit
incl. VAT plus shipping costs
The new generation of the double overall World Cup winner – developed on the race track. Two years of World Cup racing feedback, suspension kinematics developed with Aaron Gwin and the MOB, as well as a modern geometry concept that lets you choose your reach all contribute to once again making sure that the TUES has precisely the characteristics that form a winner.
Feedback from our Rampage superstars Cam Zink and Andreu Lacondeguy has also allowed us to create a bike that will continue to push the limits of freeriding well into the future.
The frame’s stiffness, the low center of gravity and the highly capable suspension come together to create the perfect machine for bike parks, rough trails, and high speed descents – the TUES is a bike you will immediately feel at home on.
Unrivalled traction, unlimited reserves of travel and a well-defined pop – the new TUES is a rare breed of animal, capable of combining active control and agility whether on the ground or in the air.
The frame. While designing the TUES we paid particular attention to synchronizing every suspension element to work together as one: frame kinematics, hydraulic damping curves, and spring force. The Virtual 4 Link suspension system is based on a low leverage ratio – and it's a major factor in giving the TUES its superior characteristics. A rapidly rising spring curve provides a lot of midstroke support: this creates more grip for turning and braking, and optimal use of travel on big jumps. Despite being very sensitive off the top, the progressiveness and support gives the TUES the pop to get airborne easily – and helps keep your legs fresh during sprints, too.

Our focus in the development process has always been to create the perfect weight distribution and optimal rider position. Thanks to its low center of gravity and the size-specific chainstay lengths it is easy to point the TUES where you want to go: you feel centered in the bike and ready to load up the tires while hitting berms. The slack headangle and the generous reach keep you in control on any track even at high speed, while the progressivity of the suspension will get you truly hooked on airtime. With this pinpoint balance of agility, control, and stability, the TUES has what it takes to inspire you – just like it did Aaron and Andreu.
For 2018, YT Tailor Made is taking things a step further. Thanks to the 5 available sizes and the low seat tube heights across the whole TUES range, riders can choose between 2 to a maximum of 3 sizes that match their body dimensions.
This allows you to choose exactly the reach that you prefer to ride, from strictly moderate to extra-long. It's like your bike was tailormade for you.
