ASR-C Enduro Complete Mountain Bike - 2015
The Yeti ASRc Enduro is much more than your everyday cross-country bike. Built around a feather-light, 4.2-pound carbon frame, the bike nails a perfect geometric nirvana, enabling it to be a strong climber and loosely confident descender all on the same day. Medium to XL frames are all 29ers, with smaller sizes equipped with 27.5 wheels, a great option so riders of all sizes can experience this sweet bike. The big hoops roll so smoothly they seem to hover over roots, boulders, and other trail impediments.
The Fox Float shock has a generous, 120mm helping of travel and is spot-on for respectable climbs, but the bike isn’t a fan of wall-steep hills or abyss-like downhills. A dropper post is one key missing element we would like to see, but the ASR remains a fun rig even without one. It’s an all-day,rideable bike good for tackling rug-smooth trails as well as rowdy, challenging lines.
