YT Szepter

So the big news is out, i am officially the new athlete for YT and specially for the YT Szepter their new innovated gravel bike which I have been testing it since a while now and i can say is the best bike I could have, for fun, for trips, for rough terrain but also for a easy going on the road. 

I am very stoked to join the family of YT because i can feel a very nice welcome that would lead to a beautiful and longer relationship.

As a very known brand for MTB and core downhill bikes I also think i will be able to improve my skills in this type of cycling too.

YT Szepter - The bike

The SZEPTER uproots all ideas of what a gravel bike should be. Leave your opinions at the door; this is the unruly sibling to gravel bikes of the past, built to redefine what is possible within the drop-bar genre. A tool with which to wield and rule over all terrain, the SZEPTER is gravel with a YT twist – reinvented for the modern-day gravity fiend.

More than a reaction to what came before it, this is an opportunity to do things differently. Gravel as it should be. Behind the front of drop bars and bartape, it has gravity in its genes. The SZEPTER defies convention, begging you to rise to an all-new challenge, explore uncharted terrain, and most importantly, LIVE UNCAGED.
