    My opinion is a bit biased (I own a Giant Reign), but I would go with the Reign. The Yukon is a basic trail bike in my opinion. The Reign will give you the option to upgrade with more aggressive suspension and other components.

    Reign hands down. The Yukon wasn't a great bike even when new.

    Another vote for the Reign. The Yukon suspension is just not that sophisticated whereas the Reign is still essentially current technology.
