Description

The swiftness.

Not content with the typical pink-and-shrink approach used with many women-specific bikes, the Yeti ASR Beti SLX Complete Mountain Bike offers the same lightning-fast acceleration and confidence-inspiring feel on the trail as the regular ASR Carbon, but it's dialed with a special shock tune that makes it all the more sensitive and not as harsh for lighter female trail riders and cross-country racers. While we can argue about the merits of differentiating bikes by gender-specific colorways, the lighter shock tune does provide a noticeable difference for female riders desiring a bit more sensitivity and traction when they're crushing up climbs and ripping descents at high speeds over bumpy terrain.

The ASR Beti Carbon Frame is a bit longer and slacker than many cross-country whippets, making it a bit more of a versatile performer on the trail. It's really a lightweight, race-ready rig that's moonlights as an agile trail companion when you're not donning a race plate. This particular frame provides all the strength and stiffness of Yeti's top-tier Turq carbon fiber, albeit with a weight penalty in the neighborhood of 250 grams (that's about 8.8 ounces). Ultimately, this carbon construction translates to rocket-like acceleration and precise handling desired by cross-country racers and trail riders alike.

Seeing that the ASR Carbon occupies much of the same territory as Yeti's newer SB4.5, it's important to detail the differences. You'll find it's packing a bit less travel at 102 millimeters, sports a steeper head tube angle of 68 degrees, and rocks a single-pivot suspension instead of Yeti's signature Switch Infinity. Also, the extra-small and small frames use 27.5in wheels for easier handling around tight switchbacks and increased stand-over for the smallest of racers and riders. All of these details make it more of a purebred XC bike, yet it's still quite cable on the trail for those desiring a trail bike that accelerates quickly.

Although more basic than Switch Infinity, the single-pivot platform reduces the frame's overall weight and increases rear triangle stiffness—both characteristics desired for an XC bike. Yeti refined the pedaling characteristics and descending composure of the ASR Carbon by working closely with FOX to fine-tune the suspension rate. What you'll find is snappy acceleration from corners and efficiency on the brutal climbs of XC, yet it's far more confident handling the rough stuff on the trail, with the shock ramping up at end stroke to prevent harsh bottom-outs.

This particular package uses a custom mix of in-house parts that are reliable and keep its overall cost down. You'll find a Shimano's workhorse SLX 1x11 drivetrain for a simplified shifting experience and large range of usable gears, seeing it has a massive 46-tooth cog for easily spinning up the steepest of climbs. Shimano's SLX hydraulic disc brakes provide reliable stopping power, even in the wet and nasty conditions you're bound to experience in shoulder seasons. Up front, you'll find a lightweight, bump-smoothing Fox 32 Performance fork with a three-position adjustable damper for fine-tuning its low-speed compression to your exact needs while trail riding and competitively racing.
