Standing in proud defiance to strict categorization, the Yeti ASRc Mountain Bike Frame refuses to be boxed into a predetermined niche by blurring the lines between cross-country whip and line-crushing enduro rig. First and foremost, the ASRc excels as a blazing-fast rocketship for XC racing with its astoundingly lightweight 4.2 pound high modulus carbon frame and single-pivot suspension platform. Its feathery disposition equates to near-instantaneous acceleration and maximum uphill efficiency, leaving the competition eating dust as you crank up steep hillsides and burst across smooth sections of trail.

However, where things get interesting is when the grueling climb turns into a jarring descent littered with boulders, loose shale, and twisty roots. This is where other cross-country bikes would be begging for mercy, yet the ASRc shines across abusive terrain and white-knuckle descents. 29 inch wheels (for medium to extra-large frames) steamroll anything lying in its path, allowing you to ride over trail impediments with effortless composure. And because it's distinctly Yeti at heart, the ASRc proudly retains a gravity-friendly persona with its 69 degree head tube angle (for medium to extra-large frames). This more relaxed geometry won't chuck you over the bars like other cross-country bikes when the going gets steep, allowing you to confidently descend on only four inches of suspension where other riders are packing longer-travel bikes.

The ASRc eschews Yeti's applauded Switch Infinity for a significantly lighter single-pivot suspension. Not only does this design save a ton of weight for efficiency, but it also simplifies regular maintenance for riders and racers servicing their own bike. The exceptionally stiff high modulus carbon frame and swing arm complement the lightweight suspension platform, translating into uncompromising acceleration needed for tearing the competition a new one. And to get the most out of the single-pivot suspension, the FOX Float Factory DPS shock gives riders the ability to switch between Open, Medium, and Firm modes for maximizing uphill speed and downhill plushness with the simple flick of a lever.

Please note, the ASRc is a 29er in medium through extra-large sizes, with small and extra-small sizes benefiting from 27.5 inch wheels for increased stand-over height and nimbler handling. Also, smaller sizes are a touch slacker and shorter in the chainstays to keep geometry well-balanced for shorter riders.

  • Blazing-fast XC rocket with an enduro alter-ego
  • Lightweight single-pivot suspension with 100mm of rear travel
  • High modulus carbon frame and swing arm for exceptional stiffness
  • FOX Float Factory DPS shock offers three-position adjustment

    Wow. I sure wish I had this bike when I was fast. There is a popular climb here in SLC called the Tower Climb; it'™s steep, technical switchbacks, and has some great single track. For about a year a small group of us tried to KOM it for bragging rights. A friend of mine had it for a bit and still holds it over my head...still stings a little. We even went as far as going for it when the wind was just right...ha! That said, I swear I would have shaved off the 26 seconds I needed to have it with this bike. The first thing that stood out to me was the suspension. The single pivot was perfect and probably the smoothest XC bike I have been on. I left the shocks open the whole ride and never felt I was wasting energy on the climbs while standing "œtrying" to hammer it. Shimano does make the best road groups on the market. It'™s been peered reviewed so let's not argue too much about it. I have always said they need to step it out on the dirt, and they have. The XTR was smooth, flawless, and I had absolutely no issues at all.
    The biggest highlight for me was the suspension, the ASR felt just like a XC racer, but as I rode it more I felt the "œtrail tendencies" that are there. I would be happy to call this my everyday rig. Of course I have to nitpick because that'™s my job, so here goes. I would love to put Sram Eagle on this, I feel it has a slightly better engagement, but like I said I'™m nitpicking. Any questions at all on this beauty let me know. Happy to help swap anything out or custom build one for you. I rode a medium and it felt spot on. Saddle height 71cm. Bike Weight: 24.7lbs

    light, flickable

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The ASRc is a tad bigger than some of the other bikes I'd been riding but certainly didn't feel like it. Very light on the road and easy to maneuver. I rode with a 120 fork which I would recommend, and a 50 stem. Part of why it may have handled so well is that I was on a small which uses a 27.5 wheel, M and up use a 29. There are not many 650b options in good cross country frames so it's a nice setup. Yeti did a great job getting back into the XC field with the ASRc, I was a little skeptical when I first rode one last year. I thought maybe they would throw together something to put out there but thats definitely not the case. It competes with the tallboy very well and I have been a big fan of the tallboy for some time. I had an X01 setup with XT brakes which was great. I'm sure it would be even better with eagle. If you have questions on builds, compatibility or anything on the ASR feel free to contact me
