Forchheim, Germany: With the DECOY bike manufacturer YT Industries brings their first E-MTB to the market and proves that the brand can also build toys with batteries that own the steeze. With an iconic design, innovative technologies and an unbeatable performance on the trail, YT interprets the E-MTB topic in its very own way and garantees customers even more fun while riding. Three models of the DECOY can be pre-ordered from today on via the webshop www.yt-industries.com. The first batch will be available mid May.
An E-MTB from YT? Seriously? Those don’t go together. Forget about it!
Whoever thinks that E-MTBs are for old or lazy people has really missed the boat. Until now! The drop of the brand new DECOY will be a wake up call even for the hardest doubters, will demonstrate the mountainbike world what’s possible with an E-MTB and that they are incredibly fun to ride. For that reason alone they are a perfect fit for YT.
“It’s like downhill with a built-in shuttle”
The DECOY opens up a new world of mountain biking. It lets you go further and discover new trails that you would never have ridden before, and it also lets you really make the most of your time on the bike – all of which means more fun. With the DECOY you will master climbs that you have never even attempted with another mountain bike, promised!
It’s a YT: downhill-genes uncaged
An E-MTB from YT must first and foremost be able to prove itself worthy of its downhill genes. That’s why, just like on all bikes, YT relies on their proven and award-winning V4L (Virtual 4 Link) rear suspension linkage that literally sticks your bike to the ground, but still has enough pop to launch off every root and enjoy the airtime. The 165 mm of rear travel combined with our new-school geometry creates a trail weapon with extra power, the likes of which you have never seen before. Additionally, YT have minimized the pedal kick-back to avoid any negative influences on the suspension action.
New-School-Geometry unites ergonomics and performance
The geometry of the DECOY delivers consistent performance on long rides and on every trail, whether uphill, downhill, technical or steep. The steep seat tube angle and the long chainstays ensure awesome climbing performance while the slack head angle settles the bike’s handling and gives you a feeling of control when things get steep and fast. The dynamic reach balances the bike perfectly and makes sure the overall length is kept in check. As a result, the center of gravity is deep and leaves you feeling like you’re sitting in the bike, with a perfect mix of stability and agility at your disposal. The Flip Chip lets you adjust the BB height as well as the head tube and seat tube angles to adapt the geometry to your preferences and your type of terrain.
