Typical enduro terrain mixes demanding trails and uphills with technical downhill sections. Our CAPRA is capable, fast, and effective, so you can confidently face these challenges and have the most fun. If you spend your weekends in the bike park or if you’re looking for a fast bike for enduro racing, the CAPRA is the right YT for you.
The CAPRA is our capable and fast enduro bike, available in both 27.5-inch and 29-inch versions. Each wheel size offers its own unique advantages and gives the CAPRA distinctly different character traits.
The CAPRA 29
If you like to pin it, grab a CAPRA 29. With a full 170 mm of travel, it eats the toughest trails for breakfast and carries great speed in demanding terrain. The fast-rolling 29-inch wheels easily overcomes any obstacle, ensuring safety even on unknown trails and providing great traction. On climbs, the big wheels provide awesome traction while offering increased stability on the descents.
The CAPRA 27
The CAPRA 27 is a playful and responsive enduro. If you want to pull up off every little lip, the CAPRA 27 is the right choice. Thanks to the smaller, 27.5-inch wheels, and the massive 180 mm of travel, it combines an agile riding feel with the reserves of a downhill bike. The 27.5-inch wheels are solid and stiff, giving you lots of control even in the tightest corners.
Built for heavy terrain and demanding regions, where a capable enduro bike is indispensable, the CAPRA filters out the chatter to help it really stick to the ground. The progressive V4L rear suspension system uses the travel efficiently and without bottoming out so you can just focus on your airtime – the CAPRA will take care of the rest.
The CAPRA sits planted even on the most technical of trails, giving you full control at top speed as well. On the climbs, the high anti-squat ensures that you can get back to the trailhead with ease and nothing other than your own power.
“Whether you are milking a flat trail for everything it’s worth, skidding down gnarly sections or hitting free ride lines, you will feel right at home on the CAPRA.”
All Carbon Frame
Our carbon frames are voluminous, stiff and light. By placing carbon fibers of different resistance in the layup we can construct imposing tube cross-sections with variable wall thickness while keeping the weight low and optimizing the frame stiffness. Details like internal cable routing with built-in cable guides underline our claim to fame in the world of high-quality carbon bike manufacturing.
The headset bearing surfaces are shaped directly into the carbon itself. This allows for homogeneous material distribution in the headtube which creates the optimal relationship between weight, reliability, and performance.
In addition to the double-sealed industrial bearings used, all pivot points are equipped with an additional seal to keep water and dirt at bay. This protects the bearings and extends their service life.
Thanks to the flip chip technology, the geometry of the CAPRA 29 can be perfectly adapted to different terrain and to your style of riding. The low position gives you a more aggressive headtube angle and more BB drop – perfect for fast and rough downhill sections. The high position provides less BB drop and a steeper headtube angle, so you can blast trails and tight turns with more ground clearance and beat those grueling uphills.
Double Air Formed Seatstays
For the CAPRA AL we use dual formed seatstays that set new standards in aluminum hydroforming, thereby creating a combination between lightness and stiffness that's won't be easy to equal.
Perfectly integrated polyurethane guards protect the frame against rock impacts and scratches. The chain stay and seat stay guards also help keep the drivetrain noise down on the trail.
Chainsuck Plate Protection
Should things get a little rough, the inconspicuous chain suck plates protect the frame from damage caused by a dropped chain. This keeps sensitive areas out of harm's way and helps prolong your frame's service life.
V4L / Virtual Four Link
Our much-acclaimed suspension technology ensures linear, smooth and responsive suspension action with an ample mid-stroke support as well as a progressive ending stroke. V4L not only gives you the confidence to hit big gaps and rugged terrain at speed, it also makes pedalling super-efficient thus resulting in excellent uphill performance.
