The original duck from YT. In 2019 YT smashed the doors straight off the ebike market with a killer looking bike for good value. I actually bought one as my first ebike. I loved it. It's a fun, capable bike that can easily deal with a long back country or long days at the bike park.

The 2021 model is running 170-165mm suspension, mullet wheel setup, Shimano EP8 and a YT's custom 540Wh battery. The custom battery makes it difficult to borrow or buy a new one and is an downside if you're used to swapping batteries with friends or taking an extra battery on a ride.

YT is direct to consumers so the Decoy comes very bling and for good value. Prices have increased lately but still better value than a traditional bike shop brand. The Decoy is still one of the best looking and well specced ebikes on the market.
