YT teases new Capra

They call it the goat

Well, this looks familiar…

Remember that Jeffsy campaign? There’s nobody that launches bikes with more aplomb than the German direct-sale giants and they look set to do it again.

YT have just posted a horror, B-movie style teaser called Return of the Goat for what we can only assume must be a new Capra. It’s a well known fact that Capra is Latin for goat plus it’s been a good few years since the line had a shake up – with the YT Jeffsy now covering up to the 160mm bracket, it almost leaves the old Capra as a bit superfluous.

There’s a long shot of a frame in the riding section and also a peek at a linkage and some stays in the close ups. The other bike shots show a headtube that look a lot svelter than the current Capra design.

Having said that it does also look suspiciously like an Ibis so it could just be a red herring at this point…

Take a look at some screen grabs below:

And the biggest clue actually came from Google when we were doing a bit of research for this piece. Namely, the description on their own ad listing:

OK, truth be told, we’re actually under embargo for all the details on the bike having already had a press camp on it but all will be revealed on Thursday. In the meantime get your best detective glasses out and see if you can spot any clues.
