At Yeti, they wanted more when they
were going downhill, but were not willing
to give up climbing efficiency.
The AS-R 7 project is the result of a lengthy 3 year R&D
process. With a
solid seven inches of travel, this bike is a
beast on the downhill. But turn the bike
up and it climbs exceptionally well, especially
when the terrain gets nasty. You
will climb things you have never climbed
before on this bike. It is truly amazing.
The Active Suspension is anchored
by the carbon dogbone, which firmly
connects the stout rear triangle to the
oversized main frame. The tapered head
tube gives the bike added strength for
the big hits and the unique front derailleur
mount eliminates shifting problems
sometimes associated with longer travel
bikes. The best part? A complete bike
can be built under 30 pounds.
If you love your current bike, but are
interested to see what you could achieve
with a bit more travel, this is a frame you have to check out.
