The 165mm YT Capra melted hearts when it was launched a few years ago delivering on performance and yet not taking too much from the pocket. The new Jeffsy ’27 looks set to follow the path set by the capable goat with its flowing lines anD melted metal paintwork.

The boys from YT over in Germany have made a serious name for themselves over the past few years with world acclaimed bikes world downhill titles to boot. Not so long ago the 160mm Capra was taking the world by storm with its great spec, geometry and unbelievable price. More recently the 29” wheeled Jeffsy has been wildly popular and one of our favourite bikes of 2016.
This is the 650b version of the Jeffsy. It comes on four sizes, offers 150mm travel front and rear (although flagship CF Pro has 160mm) and comes in carbon and aluminum and prices ranging from £1799 up to the top of the range at £3799. They’re all good.
