The Yeti ARC Hardtail once danced its way around competitors, and the ASR Carbon XX1 follows in its tracks as an all around trail bike that can handle all the ups and all the downs. And while the ARC was noted for its capability on XC trails, the ASR enters the world of all mountain bikes with a bang. As one of Yeti's unrivaled high modulus carbon frames, the ASR is stiff but light. It features a slightly slack head tube angle and a low bottom bracket that point to Yeti's prominence in downhill. This build includes a FOX FLOAT 32 120mm fork, but the frame is also compatible with a 100mm for when you'd like a lower and slightly faster reacting ride. Like many Yeti frames, the ASR features a single pivot linkage system that is paired with a FOX FLOAT CTD tuned just for the ASR. The ASR wouldn't be complete without adding SRAM's XX1 one by drivetrain system. The preeminent one by system, it pairs the X SYNC chainring, for skip free shifting with a large ratio cassette. Paired with the SRAM is none other than Shimano's XTR Trail brakes, and a Thomson seatpost and stem. You'll sit on a WTB Devo saddle while white knuckling the Easton Haven carbon handlebars. And you wouldn't put the ASR on anything short of the ENVE M50Fifty carbon wheelset wrapped in Maxxis Ikon tires.
