YT boosts specs on three key models

YT Industries’ new limited-edition Blaze models add higher-spec components, including the latest RockShox suspension and drivetrain tech, to its carbon 29er Izzo trail bike, Jeffsy 29 all-mountain bike and Capra 29 enduro machine.

Stiffer forks and grippier tyres should help push the bikes’ performance up a notch, too.

YT says that the Blaze specs are designed to offer a high-end riding experience with extensive adjustability to get your bike dialled perfectly.
