The Jeffsy Uncaged 8

Nuts by Nature

Following the spirit of offering a true connection to the trail, YT’s latest Uncaged model combines a highly appetizing specification with ultraadjustable suspension. The home run of a spec sheet includes suspension front and rear from Cane Creek, wheels from Crankbrothers with Industry 9 hubs, along with SRAM GX Eagle AXS look Mom no wires! Oh, and if you think bigger is better, this chassis can go all the way to 160mm travel upfront. Everyone, please meet the JEFFSY Uncaged 8.

The JEFFSY has always been about friendship, and the latest Uncaged 8 model takes the relationship to new heights. The aggressive trail geometry caters to the rider who isn’t afraid of taking to the trail headon or shelling peanuts themselves. Call it allmountain if you will. As with all Uncaged models, this flavor doesn’t last forever and is limited to 300 bikes around the globe. The Jeffsy Uncaged 8 is available now in the US and midspring within the EU.

With the decision to cooperate with Cane Creek we decided to get highend products from a passionate and nonmainstream brand with a long history. It’s stunning how their products can easily compete with the big brands in terms of performance, quality, and reliability. The wide range of adjustability and sensitivity of their suspension elements are state of the art.” – Reynaldo Ilagan, Director Product Development

Smith Mainline Helmet Review

The JEFFSY Uncaged 8 shares the same venerable format as its previous iterations, providing excellent trail manners with hardhitting ability on tap. Like all YT bikes, gravity runs through the JEFFSY’s veins, albeit in a peanut color this time. In the interest of providing a dependable platform, the Ultra Modulus Carbon Frame delivers a connected yet comfortable feel through your feet & hands, all whilst keeping weight to a minimum. With one of the lowest standover heights of any 150 mm 29” trail bike and sizing available from S through to XXL, this gives every type of rider the chance to get handson. Balance and predictability are key traits of JEFFSY’s nature, which is why chainstay lengths are increased from 435mm to 440mm on the larger sizes.

Peanut is the color, but the components bleed red, white, and blue if that’s your jam. Assembled by hand in North Carolina USA, the Cane Creek Helm MKII fork and Kitsuma air shock deliver 150mm of controlled travel front and rear. The threeposition climb switch and 4way compression/rebound adjustability of the Kitsuma damper make set up on the trail a breeze no need to keep puzzling over counting clicks with toolfree adjustments, nice! Now, it’s time to take a bow for the Helm MKII which wages war against friction.

Hands up if you like fast and effortless shifting? The SRAM GX AXS Eagle groupset brings the technology of its highend stable mates in line with the 520% range 1052 tooth cassette, making it suitable for any ride. A RockShox Reverb AXS signs off the dropper post duties, with the SDG Bel Air 3.0 saddle bringing up the rear. Rolling onto the next starspangled specification, the USA handmade Industry Nine 1 to 1 hubs are laced onto Crankbrothers Synthesis Enduro rims, which have separately designed crosssectional profiles for the front and rear applications. Keeping the Maxxis DHF and DHR II tires under control are the SRAM G2 Ultimate brakes, topped off with a Renthal Alloy cockpit and ODI grips.
