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.
