Yeti SB66 Carbon Awarded

If you’ve had a chance to ride the game-changing SB66 Carbon, you’re already in on the secret:

2012 SB66C yeti

this is a serious all-mountain machine with 6-inches of amazing bump absorption, dialed geometry, and incredibly efficient pedaling performance. If you haven’t ridden one yet, you don’t have to take our word for it – check out these glowing reviews the press has been giving the 66C lately. With a weight that’s lighter than most of our competition’s 4- and 5-inch travel bikes and strength that’s on par with a freeride machine, it’s no wonder the media has been lining up for test rides.

This is going to be my next bike. I got the chance to demo one of these babies last summer in Colorado. It gives you great “travel” for the rough terrains and amazing agility to stay on those tight single tracks.

Yeti 2011 – AS-R Alloy Bike Review

2010 was good year for the new AS-R 5 by Yeti. So for 2011 they have added a bunch of new colors to the palette — including neon lime. You gotta see it to appreciate it… If you are in to traditional colors you can get it in black. AS-R 5 Alloy Yeti 2011I personally really like the lime green.

While there are many reasons to like the AS-R 5, the biggest is versatility. Long, gnarly rides? No problem. You wanna race a little cross country? This bike is light enough to help you stomp your friends on the uphill and then put more time into them on the downhill. This is one of yetis’ best all terrain bikes. The ASR-5 is light enough for cross-country racing, but strong enough to deal with technical all-mountain excursions. Aggressive riders can put on a 5.5-inch-travel fork to change the angles for improved downhill handling.
The secret of this bike is balance. They have engineered it to ride a bit stiffer in the mid-stroke of the travel so it has an aggressive, lively feel on the trail. The low bottom bracket and 68 degree head tube make sure the bike is controlled and predictable when you bring it up to speed and it carves turns extremely well — due in part to the amazing stiffness of the frame.
