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 rough terrain. 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 speed. 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.
