2017 Yeti Cycles ASR Carbon Eagle Complete Mountain Bike

 

Yeti Cycles’ ASR Carbon Eagle Complete Mountain Bike is back for 2017 with a new tier designation that opens up the price range and accessibility to Yeti’s lightweight XC-leaning rig. Benefitting from trickle-down technology alongside the top-tier Turq frames, this ASR brings race-ready construction and SRAM’s industry-leading one-by 12-speed drivetrain into a slightly more affordable domain. While the standard ASR Carbon gains a few grams over its Turq counterpart, it still boasts top-notch construction that’s more than ready to hit the race course.

The main differences between the ASR and the burlier SB4.5 are less travel, a steeper head tube, and a single pivot suspension rather than the heftier Switch Infinity. This suits it for the XC racer who wants to get to the top first and demonstrate bike handling skills by dissecting terrain that enduro sled bruisers would just plow through. If Yeti’s Super Bike line is made of enduro chainsaws, then the ASR is the surgeon’s scalpel.

That’s not to say that the ASR gets timid when grueling climbs let onto jarring descents littered with baby heads, loose shale, and twisty roots. This is where other cross-country bikes would be begging for mercy, yet the ASR shines across abusive terrain and white-knuckle descents. The ASR is built to pair with 27.5 or 29in wheels, depending on size, so the big (or bigger) hoops steamroll anything lying in their path, allowing you to ride over trail impediments with effortless composure.

Because it’s distinctly Yeti at heart, the ASR proudly retains a gravity-friendly persona with a head tube angle of either 68 or 69 degrees, again depending on size. 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 ASR eschews Yeti’s applauded Switch Infinity in favor of 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 apart.
