YT CAPRA UNCAGED 12: Your New Wingman
The UNCAGED clock has struck 12, and YT Industries aims for the stratosphere with its latest creation. Featuring RockShox Flight Attendant technology, SRAM’s XO Eagle Transmission and Crankbrothers Synthesis Enduro 7 Carbon wheels, performance up or down any trail is elevated. Buckle up and get ready to buzz the tower – the CAPRA UNCAGED 12 is here.
Utilizing Ultra Modulus carbon fiber, the CAPRA UNCAGED 12 frame provides a higher strength -to- weight ratio than its High Modulus stablemates. Available in five sizes and rolling exclusively on 29” wheels, the 165mm rear kinematic delivers a slightly less progressive curve than the MX platform for maximum traction. Size-specific chainstay lengths also feature to improve chassis balance, coming in at 438mm from S-L and 443mm for XL-XXL, respectively. Essential for enduro missions, tool strap mounts feature under the top tube, and a TM6000 water bottle is included with every purchase.
RockShox Flight Attendant technology automatically adjusts your front and rear suspension to the most efficient compression mode in any given situation. No more accidental locked-out descents or draggy inefficient climbs here: Any rider can go further without compromising the fun part – downhill performance. Up front is the feature-packed 170mm RockShox ZEB Ultimate Flight Attendant. ButterCups, extended bushings, pressure relief valves, Debonair+ spring, low friction SKF seals, and Maxima Plush damping fluid – this fork is class-leading. The Super Deluxe Flight Attendant shock has your back with an electronic RCT3 damper that constantly communicates between the fork damper and crank-mounted pedal sensor. Shifting gears when the afterburner hits isn’t an issue with SRAM’s latest XO Eagle Transmission, which allows for smooth gear changes, even under load.
The Full Mount rear mech is modular and fully rebuildable, while the flat top chain and updated coatings work towards extending the lifespan of the drivetrain. A crank spindle-mounted Quarq power meter sits neatly inside the next-gen XO aluminum crankset and rounds off the high-spec drivetrain.
Crankbrothers hubs are laced to front and rear specific Synthesis Carbon rims for enhanced control and stability when pushing hard, and the Maxxis Assegai MaxxGrip and DHR II Double Down combo hooks up in all conditions while limiting the risk of flats ruining your ride. YT is a longtime fan of the Renthal FatBar and Apex stem cockpit, which sees it feature alongside SRAM Code RSC brakes, ODI grips, an upgraded Cane Creek Hellbender headset, an SDG Bel Air saddle, and RockShox AXS seatpost.
