The DECOY is gravity-oriented, powerful, and fast. It’s a hard-hitting E-MTB with enough reserves for demanding Enduro missions. On the descents, it eats roots and rocks for breakfast, and thanks to the high-performance motor, you will enjoy this feeling on the uphill as well. More fun without the need for a shuttle, the DECOY in its mullet version (29" front, 27.5" rear wheel) is an airtime-loving weapon for all technical trails, whether downhill or uphill.
Discover Your YT
It’s never too late to try something new and find your passion. That’s hardwired into the YT brand, and every bike that they make. Young Talent is what YT stands for. It’s inside us all. It’s up to each of us to find our young and undiscovered talent, to overcome conventions and pursue our dreams.
DECOY Core 2 MX – Why You Want It.
Packing a whopping 85Nm of assistance torque at your heels on a mullet (MX) downhill oriented geometry, the DECOY Core 2 is ready to dominate every track. Stay in control riding the trail bumps and features out on the ROCKSHOX ZEB R in front and the ROCKSHOX Super Deluxe Select following close behind. The power of the new Shimano EP8 motor paired with the custom 540Wh battery guarantees maximum power output on the most technical of trails and will get that adrenaline pumping. On top of all that the carbon hybrid frame, boasting strength, durability and aggressive downhill geometry looks killer!
Kit Level – Focus Performance and Efficiency
CORE 2 stands for a versatile platform with a carefully selected parts specification that combines performance and efficiency. The DECOY MX CORE 2 will please both beginners and experts alike, with its carbon main frame and its aluminium rear triangle. This is a perfect trail-shredding machine, made even better by high-quality components and uncomplicated suspension elements. Regardless of whether you want to go out for a quick rip or a long bike trip – with the DECOY MX CORE 2 you’ll be ready for anything.
Geometry You Can’t Overlook
With its 29-inch front wheel and 27.5-inch rear wheel mullet configuration, the DECOY Elite combines all the advantages of both wheel sizes, but it also benefits from downhill-oriented geometry. Thanks to the slack head angle and the moderate reach it feels stable and secure in rough terrain, so you can really get after it on the descents. The extra travel helps the bike stick to the trail and it gets more and more confident the steeper it gets. The dynamic rear end provides for a lively ride feel, perfect for trails with lots of jumps and trips to the bike park. The Flip Chip lets you adjust the geometry by making the head angle and seat tube angle 0.5 degrees steeper and raising the BB by 8 mm.
The geometry of the DECOY 29 has been specifically designed for All-Mountain riding. Compared to the DECOY 29/27, the head angle and seat tube angle are steeper, which shifts your centre of gravity further forward. The chain stays are slightly longer than on the mullet bike, which adds more pressure on the front wheel. For better drive, we’ve also made the rear suspension layout even more independent of pedalling forces, so that you can relax a bit more on the way back up the mountain. The big 29-inch wheels roll over obstacles with ease and provide for great stability even at high speed. The Flip Chip lets you adjust the geometry by making the head angle and seat tube angle 0.5 degrees steeper and raising the BB by 8 mm.

YT developed the 540 Wh battery themselves to achieve more power in a smaller space. As a result, they were able to fully integrate the battery into the down tube and give the DECOY the clean look of a YT.
The EP8 Motor Is Just Better!
The new EP8 is the result of continuous development. Not only is it stronger, lighter, and quieter than its predecessor, it also delivers the exact right amount of power at the right time, which gives a very natural feel to the assistance. With 85 NM of torque on tap, the DECOY is ready to tackle the steepest of climbs – and thanks to the E-TUBE PROJECT app, it can be perfectly adjusted to every rider and every mission.
The DECOY features a Flip Chip on both the MX and 29 builds, to allow you to adjust the geometry according to the terrain and your riding style. The Flip Chip eyelet can now be found on the shock yoke. The low position provides for a more aggressive headtube angle and lowers the BB, ideal for fast tracks. In the high position, the headtube angle is 0.5 degrees steeper and the BB is higher for more ground clearance and better performance on steep climbs.
Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH)
The DECOY now sports SRAM’s universal derailleur hanger which guarantees worldwide supply of spares. Sent it too hard? You should be able to find this part in any bike shop around the world.
