Yeti ASR 7 First Look

April 2, 2009

Stu from Evolution Imports has just been in the office to poach coffee and to show us the all-new Yet ASR 7. It’s changed quite a bit since it was first unveiled a year or so ago with a carbon fibre, single-sided chainstay, rear end, which is a pity as we wanted to see what one would look like with a Lefty. Hey-ho. The rear of the frame is now aluminium although the linkage is still carbon. 

The ASR 7 is billed as a long travel 575, with, you guessed it, 7 inches of travel, Stu reckons it’ll come in under 30lbs fully built with Fox 36 forks and an XT drivetrain. The frame will be available towards the back end of May and should cost you about £1899 with shock and there’ll be a fully built bike for about £3300.

Black, black, black, black. Also available in white and Yeti turquoise.
A tapered headtube means stiffer and lighter. Bonus. Hidden away on the other side there's routing for an adjustable seatpost too.
The rear end is designed to take a 12mm hub, again increasing stiffness. Check out the neat detailing on the chainstay bridge.
ISCG mount and the right bits and bobs to fit an e-type front mech.
Suitably chunky.
