YT Decoy MX Uncaged is a new model for 2022. The bike has the same frame as the current YT Decoy Core, but the specs are of course different. “Uncaged” is YT’s name for purpose built, limited edition models.
My thoughts on the bike in the video below.
YT has gone Öhlins for the suspension, 170 mm travel front and 165 at the back. Drivetrain is the 12 speed Shimano XT, wheelset is Crankbrothers Synthesis and rubber is Maxxis. This bike is named MX, meaning it’s a mullet bike with a 29er front wheel and 27.5″ back.
Motor is the Shimano EP8, which is one of my personal favourites. The battery capacity is 540 Wh. There has been talk about a 700 Wh battery for a while, so I emailed them and asked about it. No reply, unfortunately. The frame is made of carbon and YT claims a weight of 23.5 kg for size S.
The YT Decoy MX Uncaged 9 has about the same geometry as the current Decoy MX Core-models. Some figures are very slightly different. I assume that’s down to a different fork length (a-c) of the Öhlins fork.
