Technical features: creative solutions
The 540 Wh battery of the DECOY is YTs own development. For dependable performance and long-lasting power, it comes with thirty battery cells of the very latest technology – in fact, the very same type of cells that Tesla features in their cars. The battery is fully integrated in the downtube, held in place by two dedicated bolts and can be charged both on and off the bike. Powering the 250 watts Shimano STEPS E8000 engine the DECOY masters even the steepest trails. The engine runs silent, is one of the lightest engines on the market (2.8 kg) and, thanks to its slim design, is ideally integrated into the frame. The lightweight and compact Shimano STEPS E7000 display lets you choose between three support modes and achieve a range of about 100 km (Eco) with the DECOY. As usual, YT also put a lot of love into the details that really make the difference. Technical features such as internal cable routing, double-sealed bearings, and integrated frame protection not only emphasize the high-quality standards of the brand but also simplify the handling and maintenance of the bike and extend the lifetime of the DECOY.
29” & 27,5”: Best of both wheels
Just like on a motocross, the DECOY makes use of two different wheel sizes on the same bike – the best of two worlds. The 27.5” rear wheel is fitted with a 2.8” tire that can be run with lower pressure without becoming unstable, which creates a larger contact patch that in return generates massive grip. Upfront, the 29” wheel with its 2.4” tire is sharp and direct enough to let you carve through every turn with precision.
Design plays an important role in the development of new models at YT. Just look at the DECOY: With the EEnduro you can join any group of mountain bikers without sticking out like a sore thumb. It just looks damn good! The design language is progressive, clean and expresses perfectly both the technological competence and the high-quality standards of the brand. From the integrated rechargeable battery to the volume-matched tube sets, the compact display and the material and color design: The DECOY bears the distinctive signature of the YT designers, both inside and out, and thus blends in optically with the existing YT range.
