After the press release, it’s always nice to take a look at those new bikes on real conditions. Yeti is for sure one of the most dynamic brand for those last months and those two new models improve a lot of “trendy” innovations : long travel carbon on 29er & 650B
YETI ARC c 2014
The Arc is one of the emblematic frame from Yeti.. for a long time the only hardtail of the range before the arrival of the 29er big top. With this carbon version, the Arc is able to face many competitors with an innovating split : 650B for small size, 29er from M to XL size. exit the 26 !
YETI SB95 C
The segment of “long travel” 29er is not a dream since innovating brand such as Santa Cruz or Niner already works on specific models. But this carbon version of SB95 targets one model : the Ibis Ripley. With 127mn of travel rear on 29er wheel, you have an equivalent of a strong all mountain bike. Basically, many people can find what they are looking for in this bike.
