Routt YBB

YBB micro-suspension for gravel, 50mm tire capacity, three water bottle locations, hidden fender eyelets

The ROUTT YBB brings the YBB soft tail to gravels roads worldwide. 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 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 50mm tires. Optimized for 700 x 40-50mm tires, with a maximum tire size of 700 x 50mm. 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.

MOOTS SELECT BUILDS, provide a quicker delivery when choosing one of the curated build kits.  The MOOTS SELECT BUILDS come standard with our BRUSHED 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.

VIDEO–ROUTT GETS WIDE; BIGGER TIRES, GEOMETRY & GRAVEL WIDE

Tire Size – The ROUTT YBB holds a 50mm maximum tire tucked into a 43.7cm chain stay for quick handling and great climbing.  The 50mm tire has generous room at the chainstay and the upper seat stay for mud and debris.  

Angles, Stems & Bars – The geometry of the Routt YBB uses a slacker head angle than before and a longer top tube to give the bike a longer front-center.  Going to this set up you will use a 1-2cm shorter stem depending on fit needs.  Pairing a handle bar that is also 1-2cm wider will put the rider in the sweet spot of stability and control.  Improved stability, comfort, broader handling capability and more fun.

Gravel  W  I  D  E  for all

As the evolution of gravel bikes continue, drive trains take on a special debate of 1x or 2x? Well, that’s up to you and your preferences for your local riding.  But what’s great is that SRAM and Shimano have come out with gravel wide drivetrain options..  What does this mean?  GRAVEL WIDE….say it again with spirit! What does it do? Gravel wide moves the chain ring (s) outboard  as well as adding 2.5mm to each side for width at the crank.  What this allows a builder like Moots to do is move the chainstays outboard to create tire clearance WITHOUT making the chainstays longer.  This in conjunction with the wider gearing range now needed for 45-50mm tires and the terrain we want to ride makes this a win-win.  The ROUTT UPDATES in all three models are built around gravel wide.  The ONLY drawback is that you will NOT be able to install a standard road group set on the Routt family of bikes, but with broader tires being used we’ve found standard road gearing simply no longer to be relevant for this application.

FORK:

The current Moots gravel/cx fork is standard on all three Routt models. It features ample room for the 50mm tire, tapered steerer tube, hidden fender eyelets, 12mm thru-axle and flat mount brake mount.  Its full carbon construction is stiff, durable and lightweight.  Designed by Moots specifically for our gravel bik
