If one bike opitimises "back-in-the-day" it is the Yeti ARC.
Originally a joint project in the early ninties with Easton to create the lightest hard tail on the market, the ARC has set the standard for hardtail performance ever since. Stiff and efficient and very balanced, the ARC handles like a dream. Trademark Yeti loop stays, opitimised Yeti Pure tubing, and perfect race geometry make this the hard tail of choice for many of the top racers.
