German brand YT set new standards in gravel bike descending capabilities with the SZEPTER, though without compromising its performance in other areas. With the SZEPTER, you get a gravel bike that’s innovative in its approach, is fairly priced, and performs convincingly for mountain bikers who want a drop bar bike for all kinds of adventures. The proven technology like the suspension fork up front and the suspended dropper seat post, offer the kind of comfort and reserves that mountain bikers expect. But it’s not just the components that are designed for the descents, but also the geometry with its slack head angle that contributes to the bike’s capabilities. Thanks to the central riding position, the YT SZEPTER also climbs well. The gravel bike serves fine as a commuter, too. Now you can spice up your monotonous ride to the office by veering off the bike paths and taking the trails instead.
