Yeti 2011 – 575 Bike Review

The 575 has been one of our most popular bikes for years and it has been completely re-designed for 2011.

Yeti 575 - 2011 Version

So what’s different? Let’s start up front. The front triangle still sports the custom hydro-formed tubeset that has given it its distinctive look, but they have added a tapered head tube to increase front-end stiffness, added ISCG guides and completely redesigned the main pivot and main pivot junction. The main pivot now has double row bearings for increased stiffness and durability. A new hydro-formed main pivot junction increases stiffness and fatigue strength, allows more clearance, and facilitates a direct mount front derailleur for better performance. We added cable stops for dropper seat posts as well.

The rear chains stays have been completely redesigned as well. Gone are the svelte chain stays — these have been replaced by over-sized alloy chain stays with internal cable routing. Not only are they extremely durable, but they look good too. They feature our Yeti chip system, so you can run 12mm x 142mm QR through axle or standard QR. The carbon seat stays remain intact.

The geometry has also been revised for aggressive trail riding. We lowered the bottom bracket a bit and slackened out the head tube.

The 575 has long set the bar for all-mountain performance and now it has even more flexibility. You can still build it up light weight, but you can also build it to tackle ridiculous terrain. It keeps getting better… (written by staff at yeti)

This is a great looking bike, but as we all know it is more than just the look. How does it perform?

The 2011 – 575 is designed for a dropper post.
