YT Industries has introduced new CORE models of its Tues and Dirt Love models, bringing the renowned CORE x UNCAGED vision to its downhill and dirt jump bikes.
The introduction of these models marks the final stage in the evolution of this portfolio with the TUES CORE 4 and DIRT LOVE CORE 2. The CORE models cover a wide spectrum of builds, with the model number indicating the level of specification – the higher the number, the more the sophisticated and technologically advanced motorcycle. The introduction of the TUES CORE 4 and DIRT LOVE CORE 2 means there may be additional iterations of these models, both above and below the current offerings. CORE models may also be subject to ongoing changes as newer and more innovative technologies become available. This system enables continuous improvement as the industry evolves, ensuring that the YT family has constant access to the best performance at any price. In contrast, UNCAGED models are unique versions and have limited availability.
MAR – World Cup winning racing machine
Whether it’s Mont Sainte-Anne, Snowshoe, Val di Sole or Leogang, the YT TUES has not only conquered the gnarliest downhill tracks on the World Cup circuit; he also delivers intense features on Rampage, year after year. Now weeks away from the biggest freeride mountain bike event on the calendar, YT Industries presents the first CORE model of its downhill machine.
Available in 29″ or 27.5″ flavors, the TUES CORE 4 and its Nox Blue colorway are eager to hit the bigs and blast through technical rock gardens in bike parks around the world. This high-end build features a phenomenal FOX 40 and FOX X2 FLOAT suspension combination (200mm/203mm travel), SRAM Code RSC brakes, a SRAM X01 DH drivetrain and a Renthal cockpit, offering an elite feel perfect for hunt PB or drawing shapes in the park.
DIRT LOVE – fly and enjoy good times
It all started with DIRT LOVE. Closely linked to the YT heritage, this dirt jump steel bike sparked the brand’s journey in 2008. The gravity-inspired DNA runs throughout the YT range, so it only made sense to bring the new CORE model frame to the DIRT LOVE platform . As used by BMX phenom Anthony Napolitan and slopestyle superstar Erik Fedko, you’ll find DIRT LOVE events and jam sessions all over the world.
The DIRT LOVE CORE 2, with a striking Wasabi green color, offers perfect performance. The premium CroMo steel frame is made through a hydroforming process, increasing its durability while eliminating excess weight. Combined with a carefully selected component specification, this bike features a RockShox Pike DJ fork and a custom YT x DT Swiss wheelset. The DIRT LOVE CORE 2 is the perfect tool for riders looking for serious air time, looking to stomp the hardest tricks and celebrate the good times.
