Moots (United States) - Press Release: Simplicity, balanced handling, and longterm durability is what separates the MOUNTAINEER YBB from other bikes in its class.
Like you, Moots dreams of single-track. Twisty, treelined, smooth, rocky, damp, dusty, it all dances around in our heads throughout the work day; especially during those long winter months. Sweating up climbs, the sweet spray of tacky dirt spinning up from the tires, and being completely lost in navigating each turn and feature is true flow. In these moments the bike disappears underneath you and you become one with the trail and the outdoors.
This insatiable quest is the origin and continued evolution of the MOUNTAINEER YBB. The legendary MOOTS YBB micro suspension soft-tail design has 1-1/4” of pivotless rear travel to take the edge off small hits and not over complicate your life. With ample 29’’ tire clearance, 120mm travel fork, and a modern yet balanced geometry, the MOUNTAINEER YBB continues to keep us hunting for new trails and the perfect new lines on our old favorites.
Like all MOOTS, the MOUNTAINEER YBB is built for those that hunt adventure, freedom, years of trusted reliability and true connection with the simple things that make the biggest differences.
The all NEW MOUNTAINEER YBB has incorporated our favorite features from its predecessors and the legendary MOOTO X YBB putting together the best cross country trail bike that we can assemble in one frame. The lightweight, agile frame feels at home on a race course, while the capability to accept up to 29×2.6” tires, stealth dropper routing, and standard Anything Cage Mount dare you to embark on the roughest backcountry adventure you can dream up.
The MOUNTAINEER YBB uses the highest standard US sourced seamless 3/2.5 titanium tubeset, is handbuilt one at a time in Steamboat Springs, Colorado and backed by a lifetime warranty. It is built in four standard sizes, but custom geometry is available to ensure the perfect fit for every rider.
NEW for 2019 are our MOOTS SELECT BUILDS, which provide a quicker delivery when choosing one of the curated build kits. The MOOTS SELECT BUILDS come standard with our ETCHED finish but can be upgraded to a full array of finish options including our Signature Series anodized logos and patterns. Visit our FINISHES page for the full menu and details.
Like all Moots models, the MOUNTAINEER YBB is available with our MOOTS SELECT BUILDS. These frame specifications and build kits showcase our most popular options and in-house recommendation for the pinnacle of performance. Additionally, we aim to deliver our MOOTS SELECT BUILDS with the best lead time we can offer.
