Two big news from Yeti Cycles – maybe we’ll have the chance to see those two new bikes on the Sea Otter 2013.
The first new bike is the carbon version of the SB95 – trail bike with 29er wheels.
This SB96c keeps the DNA of its brothers SB95 and SB66, using the Switch Technology to manage the rear suspension.
The other model is a new version of the mythical ARC, now on a carbon version.
The source says that large model (from M to …) would be available in 29 inches – XS and S ready to use 650B wheels. This idea does not look stupid since small guys could be uncomfortable on big size wheels.
For this nice hardtail :
> 100 / 120mn front travel
> ISCG removable
> internal routing for drivetrain cables
> tapered pivot
> 142x12mn rear axle
