Hi guys, sorry for not Speak German. I only speak spanish and english.
Please help me a little.

it's time to retire my 2010 HPC Carbon Cube with 26 "and I'm between two bikes, the Stevens Whaka Carbon Max and the YT CF Pro Race at 27.5.
The two are fully equipped, but they have some differences like:
The Stevens has electronic XTR and the other Sram x01
Stevens has Boost in front and behind, and YT just behind.
For other components, I do not see very significant differences.

What I worry about is the suspension system of one with respect to the other, because I don't have knowledge about this and I would like to know your opinion, since I do not know which is more effective (good) of the two because I do not understand this. I just know that the Stevens pedaling efficiency is better than the YT (29 ") according to the linkage page for what I read.

If you do not have to look the price, who do you choose ?

Can you help me a little bit ... to my naked eye I like more Stevens, for the subject of Di2 and weighs in 12kg, but I don't understand of geometry and types of rockers .
Thank you very much for your help.

Hy,

I would choose the YT because of the better price/value and the awesome reviews. I think also that the linkage System of the YT is better on the climbs and the downhills based on the reviews. I'm no YT fanboy but the look of the jeffsy is great and much better than the Stevens (my Opinion) .
In the end you have to be sure which style of rider you are because the two bikes are very different, maybe a testride is the best Option for you.

Please can you tell me the two different styles is each one?
The whaka more enduro, and worst climber?

Sorry i was a little bit confused because i thought that you would take the 29" jeffsy and not the 27,5". In 27,5 both bikes are more similar.

yes both bikes in 27,5 size.
The problem it is I don't know what geometry it is better to descend the mountaint and climb, if the whaka or the jeffsy.
