Mountaineers crave adventure, and the Moots Mountaineer YBB is no different. This unique mountain bike gloriously combines the geometry and all-around efficiency of a hardtail cross country bike with the added control and comfort of dual suspension. The result is an adventure-seeking machine that begs to be taken down singletrack leading off into the great unknown.
One of the key features that makes this bike unique is Moots’ YBB (Why-Be-Beat) rear micro-suspension, offering 1-¼” of helpful pivotless travel that takes the bite out of the small, repetitive hits that characterize adventurous riding. It’s an uncomplicated, uncluttered system that requires no maintenance and adds next to nothing in terms of weight. Moots calls it a soft-tail, and it makes perfect sense for the long distance rider or the rider who prioritizes simplicity and comfort.
It’s got 120mm of front suspension thanks to a FOX 34 SC fork and a capable 1x drivetrain that will help you tackle the steepest climbs and fast, flowy trails. With clearance for up to 29 x 2.6” tires, there’s no terrain that’s off limits. Moots added stealth routing for a dropper post and a standard Anything Cage mount on the down tube. Unloaded, the Mountaineer YBB is a fun-loving singletrack shredder. Set it up with bags and you’ve a purpose-built bikepacker’s dream bike. You decide, this bike will handle anything you’ve got rolling around in your brain.
The benefit of the US-made 3/2.5 titanium is multifaceted, and you’ll appreciate this bike’s weight class, it’s efficiency, and its outright durability. It may not be the bike for every situation, but it’s definitely the bike for most.
The Mountaineer YBB comes in 4 standard sizes from S to XL, but custom geometry is available so every rider gets the perfect fit. MOOTS SELECT BUILDS provide a quicker delivery when choosing one of the curated build kits. The MOOTS SELECT BUILDS come standard with the ETCHED finish but can be upgraded to a full array of finish options including Signature Series anodized logos and patterns.
