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 . 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.
