In honor of its anniversary, Yeti overhauled its most popular model—the 575 trail bike, named for its 5.75 inches of rear-wheel travel. In addition to updates and revisions to the frame, it features an attention grabbing limited-edition paint job. The graphics combine the stencil-style font of mid-80s Yetis, with the yellow and turquoise dart paint scheme of the mid-90s and current-era headbadge. Featuring a colour-matched Fox 32 fork, a WTB saddle with 25th anniversary graphics and a custom turquoise-anodized Chris King headset and bottom bracket.
The 575 has been making rough trails
smoother for the last 5 years and has
been the most successful bike in the
history of Yeti. Why? Well, there are a
number of reasons: it is light, has loads of
travel (5.75”), is efficient, and descends
well. But most importantly, it rules on
At the heart of the 575 is Yeti's Active
Suspension system that is made for trail
riding. The longer travel makes it easier
when climbing rocky, rooted, nasty terrain
– rather than fight your way through
the obstacles, you can sit back, pedal,
and let the bike do the work.
The seat angle has been designed to put
you in an efficient pedaling position, so
you have full power when going uphill.
And the geometry is neutral and predictable,
so you don’t have to worry about
things getting skittish if you bring it up to
On the descent, the 575 is a dream. It
is designed with an active mid-stroke in
the suspension so you can feel the bike’s
full travel, especially when encountering
square-edged bumps. It’s low bottom
bracket and perfectly balance suspension
makes fast cornering, even in rough
terrain, easy and controlled.
Dogbone: Dogbone controls suspension rate and enhances rear end
stiffness. Sealed bearings allow the dogbone to move freely
Flex Pivots: Carbon Flex pivots allow Yeti to shave weight and increase performance. I-Beam construction has great lateral stiffness and enhances suspension performance.
Pure Tubing: Yeti pure tubing is custom butted and tapered 7005 aluminium. This makes the frame lightweight and strong without the use of gussets. The unique shape perfectly compliments the shape of the headtube for increased front-end stiffness.
