    Brett Tippie is living proof that Young Talent is not about age, but about attitude. As the newest YT family member, his tools of shred will be the TUES, CAPRA, and JEFFSY. "I have lusted after the sexy YT bikes for some time, and after testing them, I was blown away about how plush, stiff and...

    Earlier this month, YT launched a new 27.5" version of the Jeffsy. With similar lines, smaller wheels, and more travel, it's sure to be a hit among riders looking for a more playful feel. To get a feel for what the bike can do, YT just released a new edit featuring a World Cup pro and a...

    YT Industries is perceived by many as a freeride/gravity oriented brand, so it surprised a lot of riders when they dropped a 29er trail bike last year. With slack angles, short chainstays, and progressive suspension, Mtbr loved it. In fact, after riding our test rig, one of our reviewers went...

    What is it? YT Industries is a consumer-direct company and they expect to ship a lot of bikes to consumers in boxes. So instead of picking up their shiny new bike at the bike shop, the consumer puts his fate on the packing job of YT and the gentle hands of shipping carriers around the world...

    The YT Jeffsy was one of the most talked about trail bikes in 2016. Last year was a big year for YT Industries. The German direct-to-consumer brand made a big splash in the U.S., their bikes turning heads on the trail and internet. Indeed, this First Ride Review of the YT Jeffsy CF Comp 1 was...

    The Pivot Switchblade in an engineering marvel. It's convertible between 27.5+ and 29er wheels but doesn't compromise front derailleur compatibility, tire clearance, or chainstay length to get there. It also has room for a water bottle inside the front triangle. Winner: Pivot Switchblade When...

    YT Industries recently brought a Jeffsy fleet to Santa Cruz, California, and invited Mtbr to cast our verdict: love or hate. (If the former, then an #ILOVEJEFFSY social media post would be in order). Both Markus Flossmann (CEO) and Stefan Willared (CTO) were on hand to talk about the bike's...

    YT, which stands for young talents, is best known for its extremely well-priced direct-to-consumer product line which leans heavily towards the rowdier side of the bike spectrum. To give you a further feel for who this brand is, you only need to take one look at their team roster, which is...

    In a direct head to head comparison of geometry, the Specialized Demo and YT Industries TUES are not all that different. They share the same 63.5 degree headtube angle, and the reach, chainstay, and wheelbase numbers are all within a few millimeters. The big surprise is just how different the...
