“As a direct-to-consumer brand, we are constantly listening to the feedback the YT Family gives us. We are always looking for opportunities to improve our products.

The Blaze model range offers riders from all riding backgrounds a high-end riding experience.”Markus Flossmann, Founder YT Industries
The YT IZZO Blaze is for those long ride days in the saddle with eyes on pedaling and climbing while still plush on the downhill. The IZZO brings a new twist to the YT lineup with a carbon framed 29 inch wheelset, in sizes small to XXL. The RockShox Pike eliminates the remote lockout offering a gravity focussed spec for the IZZO Blaze.
The RockShox Pike has the IZZO sitting at 140mm travel resulting in a slacker bike. The head angle and seat tube are now at 65.5°/66° and 76.5°/77° depending upon the flip chip setting. Changes to the spec include Eagle Suspension. This means the IZZO has the biggest cassette cog at 52T and the increased range to clean the climbs. And, the Maxxis Forecaster tires have replaced the Minions for both front and rear. YT is offering this one only as a limited edition. If you’re looking for an IZZO? The bike weighs in at 13.7kg / 30.2 lb and is priced at €3,999 EUR, £3,599 GBP, $3,999 USD, $5,399 CAD.
