The AS-R Carbon has racked up more awards than any bike in the Yeti line. Why all the excitement? Part of the reason is the bike is really light, fast, and super-efficient. The carbon monocoque frame and suspension have been optimized for cross-country racing and the optional integrated seat mast saves weight and transfers pedaling forces more efficiently than traditional seat posts. You can really feel the efficiency when you get on the gas. But that’s just the beginning, this bike is a great descender. Yeti have slackened the head tube a bit to give it amazing trail manners, even on high-speed technical descents. Some in the industry scoffed at upsetting the traditional geometry of a cross-country bike...then it started winning awards and many followed suit. Everything about the ASR carbon screams speed and efficiency.
