Bike Checks: Vali Höll’s YT Fleet
Subsequent week Vali Höll will take to the snow-lined monitor of her native DH course and face the Rachel Athertons and Myriam Nicoles of this world in her first-ever elite race. The World Championship in Leogang will definitely be a memorable one for the quiet, younger Austrian, however up to now stress and expectation appear to have solely fuelled her performances. Vali may have her trusty YT Tues beneath her for the occasion, however after all, there’s extra to her quiver than simply the massive bike.
So 4 bikes… what number of cables? We rely a really minimal 9 in complete amongst Vali Höll’s steady of all-carbon, full SRAM, YT machines. Apart from her nonetheless cable-operated downhill bike, it is all fairly futuristic for Austria’s quickest younger racer; wi-fi shifting by SRAM for her droppers and derailleurs are her favourite contact for flawless shifting and retaining her bikes trying additional clear.
Though one of many shorter racers on the market at 160cm, it is maybe a shock to see no mixed-wheel bikes in her armory. It’s one thing Höll has investigated, however she considers all of them work higher with the bigger wheel the frames have been designed round. There’s only one coil shock among the many quiver too, and it is not on her downhill bike, for which she prefers the tune-ability of air and a much less linear really feel from the Tues linkage. Allow us to now look upon these treasures one after the other.
