The greedy goat.
Greed is the insatiable hunger for adventure. The unquenched thirst for new challenges. The tireless search for more. And the CAPRA is endlessly greedy: it’s greedy for the best trails, the most demanding downhills but more than anything, it wants to satisfy your craving for a potent enduro bike. It is the ideal bike for racking up the miles on the trail, impressing bystanders in the bike park or hunting for seconds in a race. Downhill, this goat runs like a wolf was after it. The ingenious geometry of the CAPRA awakens your instincts and turns you into a rider that you yourself will hardly recognize. It delivers just the right combination of trail bike agility and downhill bike stability. Forest loam, steep and rocky descents, or flowy jump trails; this goat will eat anything.
27 or 29 – not an easy decision. Both CAPRAs offer a perfectly dialed combination of aggressiveness, speed, agility, and handling. It is your riding style, preferred terrain, and last but not least your personal preferences that are the deciding factors:
The CAPRA 29 combines unbeatable control and stability on fast downhills with unmatched climbing efficiency. Planted low between the axles you form a unity with the bike that offers instant confidence. Thanks to the slack headtube angle, the long wheel base and those tall, capable wheels the CAPRA is the perfect tool for conquering the Megavalanche or putting away long trail rides with plenty of ups and downs. The outstanding grip provides excellent drive on power-intensive climbs and thanks to the FlipChip the geometry can be perfectly adapted to your needs.
The CAPRA 27 is for all of those looking for the playful agility of an enduro bike combined with the gravity genes of a downhiller. With extra suspension travel it sits on the trail like a true DH bike. The slack headtube angle and long wheel base provide for super stable handling, while the extra short chainstays ensure that the bike remains playful, agile, and shamelessly greedy for turns. Without limitation, the CAPRA 27 is a machine made for descending – and one that doesn’t need a lift.
True to our downhill roots, the low leverage ratio of our award-winning V4L suspension technology gives the CAPRA its distinctive characteristics: great off-the-top sensitivity, ample mid-stroke support and a progressive ending stroke. V4L not only gives you the confidence to hit big gaps and rugged terrain at speed, it also makes pedaling super-efficient. The generous amount of anti-squat prevents unwanted suspension movement even under heavy load - the result is outstanding climbing efficiency with neutral suspension behavior.
The CAPRA is equally impressive when it comes to the details: in addition to using double-sealed industrial bearings, all pivot points are equipped with an additional seal to further prevent dirt and water ingress. This not only protects the bearing but also increases its service life. Other clever features like the color-coordinated frame protectors, fully guided internal cable routing and smooth surfaces that prevent dirt build-up all help give this goat its clean looks.
“The CAPRA is just so f@#$%!* rad, you can really do EVERYTHING with it … It pretty sure can be as fast as a downhill bike, so it’s my bike for every ride, every day. The geometry is a game changer for the Enduro world – so let’s keep ripping trails and whipping through corners!”
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 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 pedaling super-efficient thus resulting in excellent uphill performance.
