YBB micro-suspension for gravel, 45mm tire capacity, three water bottle locations, hidden fender eyelets
NEW for 2019, the ROUTT YBB joins the Moots gravel family line up. The bike incorporates the legendary Moots YBB ‘softail’ micro-suspension design, first pioneered on our mountain bikes in the 1990’s and adapts it to create the ultimate gravel bike.
The NEW ROUTT YBB is primarily designed for the cyclist looking for next-level compliance, when tackling mixed-surface rides. It features just over 20mm of rear axle travel that takes the edge off backcountry road and trail chatter, to provide supremely smooth, confident, and pleasurable pedaling experiences.
The ROUTT YBB boasts a bevy of performance-oriented features. Perfect rear wheel and brake alignment come courtesy of our proprietary 6/4 titanium 3D-printed flat-mount disc brake mount. To provide the greatest range of tire and wheel combination compatibility, the frame and fork are designed to accommodate up to 45mm tires. Optimized for 700 x 30-45mm tires, with a maximum tire size of 700 x 45mm or 650 x 52mm tire clearance with compact double chain rings, or up to 42 tooth clearance with one by drivetrains. The ROUTT YBB frame comes standard with a 3rd water bottle location, rear fender mounts and Moots all carbon gravel/cross fork that features hidden fender eyelets for all-weather riding. The ROUTT YBB is also compatiable with a LAUF gravel fork if would like to add a bit of suspension to your ride.
The ROUTT YBB uses a US-made, seamless 3/2.5 titanium tubeset and is available in seven sizes, with custom geometry available to ensure perfect fit for every rider.
NEW for 2019 are our MOOTS SELECT BUILDS, which provide a quicker delivery when choosing one of the curated build kits. The MOOTS SELECT BUILDS come standard with our ETCHED finish but can be upgraded to a full array of finish options including our Signature Series anodized logos and patterns. Visit our FINISHES page for the full menu and details.
