Once again the CAPRA is setting new standards.
Confidence, creativity, endurance: this G.O.A.T. will get you and it will turn you into the rider you have always aspired to be. And true to our core we keep pushing boundaries: the all new CAPRA is a full-on downhill machine crossed with the uphill performance of a trail bike.
Bomb proof tracking, a finely tuned responsiveness and railroad track cornering: the CAPRA has reserves keen to handle downhill minefields with the brutal ease of a trophy truck. A bike that just begs to be pushed hard, the perfect tool to unlock those big, wild rides.
On the trail the CAPRA flies, carves and thrills all the way down, giving you the light-footed pop and playfulness of a fawn that sees it’s first spring. While on the uphill it resembles its name giver, the G.O.A.T., the confident, effortless and most skillful climber out there. The real king of the mountain - the greatest of all time.
27 or 29 – not an easy decision. Because both CAPRAs are dialled into a perfect combination of aggressiveness, speed, agility, and handling, there's no obvious 'right' answer. Your riding style, preferred terrain, and - last but not least, personal preference are the deciding factors.
The CAPRA 29 offers unbeatable control and stability on fast downhills while being an efficient climber on the uphills. Planted low between the axles you form a unity with the bike that offers instant confidence. Thanks to the slack headtube angle, the long wheel base and those tall, capable wheels the CAPRA is the perfect tool to conquer the Megavalanche while at the same time giving you pedalling efficiency over long distances with plenty of up- and downhills. The outstanding grip provides unheard-of propulsion on those gruelling climbs and thanks to the FlipChip the geometry can be perfectly adapted to your needs.
The CAPRA 27 is for all of those looking for the playful agility of an enduro bike combined with the gravity genes of a downhiller. The extra suspension travel ensures it doesn't give any ground when dealing with rough terrain or soaking up sketchy landings. The slack headtube angle and long wheel base ensure perfect traction while the extra short chainstays make the bikes insatiably fast and addictively engaging - on the ground and in the air. You will ride longer and crazier than ever - and will never need a lift again.
For the new generation of the CAPRA we have fine-tuned our much-acclaimed Virtual 4 Link suspension system even further. We adopt the downhill principle due to the low transmission and thus create the characteristics of V4L: an off-the-top sensitivity, even more ample mid-stroke support than before and a progressive ending stroke.
V4L not only gives you the confidence to hit big gaps and rugged terrain at speed, it also makes pedalling super-efficient. Additionally we have optimized the kinematics to further reduce the influence of pedalling forces. The result is an outstanding climbing efficiency with optimum climbing position and neutral riding behaviour - providing the perfect riding experience.
“The new CAPRA is just so f@#$%!* rad, you can really do EVERYTHING with it…It pretty sure can be as fast as on a downhill bike, so it’s my bike for every ride, every day. And the new bike geometry is gonna change the game of the enduro world. So let’s keep ripping trails and whipping through corners!”
Our Frenchie definitely has the loosest style in the Enduro World Series and is a true fan favorite. As a foster son of Cedric Gracia, the former motocross racer knows how to combine good times and racing.
All Carbon Frame
Our all carbon frames are voluminous, rigid and light. We achieve this by using our advanced monocoque production techniques: The tube walls vary in thickness, putting material where it's needed for strength and reducing weight everywhere else. The result are frames with exceptional rigidity, reliability and the very lowest weights. Additional details such as internal cable routing with cable guides underline our desire to produce high quality carbon bikes.
Should things get a little rough, the inconspicuous chain suck plates protect the frame from damage caused by a dropped chain. This keeps sensitive areas out of harm's way and helps prolong your frame's lifetime.
Complementing the double sealed bearings all bearing positions are equipped with additional seals to keep water and dirt at bay. This protects the bearings and extends their service life.
Thanks to the flip chip technology, the geometry of the CAPRA 29 can be perfectly adapted to different terrain and to your style of riding. The low position gives you a more aggressive headtube angle and a bigger BB drop – perfect for quick and grimy downhill sections. The high position provides a smaller BB drop and steeper headtube angle, so you can blast trails and tight turns with more ground clearance and beat those gruelling uphills.
Double Air Formed Seatstays
For the CAPRA AL we use dual formed seatstays that set new standards in aluminum forming. We have created a combination between lightness and stiffness that's won't be easy to equal.
Perfectly integrated polyurethane guards protect the frame against rock impacts and scratches. The chain stay and seat stay guards also help keep the noise down, so that the only sound you’ll hear on the trail is that rich braaaaap! we all love so much.
Chainsuck Plate Protection
Should things get a little rough, the inconspicuous chain suck plates protect the frame from damage caused by a dropped chain. This keeps sensitive areas out of harm's way and helps prolong your frame's service life.
V4L / Virtual Four Link
Our much-acclaimed suspension technology ensures linear, smooth and responsive suspension action with an ample mid-stroke support as well as a progressive ending stroke. V4L not only gives you the confidence to hit big gaps and rugged terrain at speed, it also makes pedalling super-efficient thus resulting in excellent uphill performance.
