GEOMETRY & SPEC
In comparison to the E-enduro with its mullet set-up the DECOY 29 has been built with all-mountain terrain in mind. Both head and seat tube angle are steeper due to which the rider’s center of gravity shifts further forward and the chainstays are longer, allowing more pressure to be added to the front wheel on steep, technical climbs. The 29-inch wheelset will make quick work of any obstacles in the way and enables a convincingly smooth ride. The geometry can also be adjusted thanks to the Flip Chip, which drops the BB by 7 mm and results in a 0.5°-slacker head and seat tube angle if required. The Shimano E8000 motor and 540Wh battery deliver powerful assistance on both the DECOY Pro 29 and Base 29 models.
“Our current DECOY is made for riders that want an EMTB capable of riding a variety of aggressive off-road trails, but with a special emphasis on more technical and gravity or enduro oriented riding.While this is great for a lot of people, there are others that seek something different and the DECOY 29 could be a better choice. It’s ideal for people that live in less demanding or flatter terrain, but still want to have a real off-road EMTB. Whether you choose the DECOY or DECOY 29, YT’s EMTB bikes are always dedicated to real off-road riders, just like our other mountain bikes.For sure they can take you to the ‘biergarten’ also, but only after you ride every trail you can find.”

Equipped with 150mm of front travel courtesy of the RockShox Yari RC and RockShox Deluxe Select rear shock the Base model is well-prepared for every challenge that may come the rider’s way. The 12-speed Shimano SLX drivetrain ensures riders always find the right gear at the right time to get the job done.
