The ARC was one of the most famous bikes in the history of Yeti. It boasted the first Easton TaperWall tubeset and set a standard for lightweight. The ARC Big Top is a continuation of the original idea, except it rolls on bigger hoops and a carbon rear triangle. It took Yeti a while to get on the 29’r bandwagon, but once they did, they were all in. They started by making a full-alloy frame, but test riders felt it was a bit stiff, so they added carbon fibre to mellow out the rear end but retain great lateral stiffness. The front end boasts classic Yeti geometry, a little slacker and lower than the other guys. So it retains all the advantages of a 29’r but descends like a Yeti. You can also run your Big Top 29’R as a single speed with a set of single speed drops. The chainstay length is adjustable from 17.3” to 18.0”.
