YT Industries Jeffsy 29 Core 3 review

The YT Jeffsy 29 Core 3 is a very capable all-mountain bike which can handle the rough stuff but is equally at home on flow trails and jumps. While the specification list is solid for the money, it's worth paying extra attention to frame sizing and geometry to get the ride you want. With a longer dropper and some tougher tyres this bike has what it takes to be a real challenger when it comes to the best mountain bikes.

Richard Owen

Like Robocop or the Six Million Dollar Man, YT have rebuilt the Jeffsy with top notch tech to be (even) better than it was before

YT JEFFSY UNCAGED 6 – In our 2022 trail bike group test

Simon Kohler

In our 2022 trail bike group test, the YT JEFFSY 6 stands up against the competition with an electronic RockShox Flight Attendant suspension system.

  • Clean look

  • Solid climber

  • Direct and precise handling

  • Brakes lack power

  • Limited freedom of movement (due to long seat tube and short dropper post)

YT Jeffsy 29 Core 3 review

Ed Thomsett

An excellent complete package that makes fun of all but the gnarliest descents, thanks to a head angle that feels too steep

  • Predictable ride quality

  • A solid suite of parts

  • Great for riding just about any terrain

  • Conservative head angle

  • A good price, but the outrageous value YT’s reputation was built on isn’t there

YT Industries Jeffsy Uncaged 6 review - MBR

Alan Muldoon

YT’s contender for best trail bike on the market is the acclaimed Jeffsy, and the flagship bike in the Jeffsy line is the Uncaged 6. Why uncaged? Well, not only is it YT’s maxim on how to live life, the Uncaged tag helps distinguish this special edition model from the Core bikes that make up the rest of the range. So what makes Jeffsy Uncaged 6 so standout? For starters, it gets the brand new RockShox Flight Attendant electronic suspension, that automatically toggles the suspension settings on the fork and shock between open, pedal and lock modes based on the pitch of the bike, suspension data from accelerometers on the fork and shock, and whether or not you are pedalling. And, just like the SRAM XX1 AXS drivetrain and the RockShox Reverb AXS dropper post adorning the Uncaged 6, everything is wireless so it can in theory be fitted to any bike as a kit because unlike Fox’s Live Valve there are no dedicated mounts or cable routing required. And because it’s all designed under one roof, the derailleur, seat post, shock and fork use the same battery and charger. So let’s say your dropper post runs out of juice mid ride, simply swap the battery with the shock which then defaults to the open setting and continue as normal. Only the crank sensor uses a AAA battery, which SRAM says should last for a year before needing replacing. The Control Module on the fork is the brain and user interface of the system, but you can also make all of the adjustments through the SRAM AXS app. You can control the bias of the suspension, with five settings: that run for more open to firmer. So if you have a bike that uses a suspension system that is designed for pedalling efficiency, you’d run the bias more open. You also use the Control Module or the app, to electronically adjust the low speed compression damping on both the fork and shock, while air pressure and rebound damping in are adjusted the old fashioned way. Based around the same full carbon Jeffsy frame that comes on the Core 4, the Uncaged 6 boasts 152mm of rear travel in the high geometry setting and 147mm in the low position. Where YT splits the difference and calls it a 150mm bike. But just like the alloy Jeffsy Core 2 that we featured in our Trail Bike of the Year test, we measured rear travel at 140mm in the low setting, so 7mm shy of claimed. The suspension is so well tuned though, that you never feel under gunned. Suspension If the addition of Flight Attendant isn’t enough to get your pulse racing, how about the latest fork tech? The new RockShox Pike, Lyrik and Zeb Flight Attendant equipped forks now feature Pressure Relief Valves on the back of the lower legs for blowing off steam, just like the latest Fox forks. It’s what’s inside the 150mm travel Lyrik Ultimate on the Jeffsy …Continue reading »

  • Best of both worlds suspension thanks to Flight Attendant

  • Every bike doesn’t come with Flight Attendant
