Yeti SB5c Beti
Juli Furtado, Marla Streb, Jill Kinter, and Tara Llanes are four of the most blazing-fast women racers in mountain biking’s storied history, and they won it all riding Yeti bikes. The Colorado-based company has long been a fixture in the sport, and the Beti is a rig tailor-made for shred-happy women riders. Utilizing the same winning frame geometry, Yeti focused on component choices for a more comfortable fit, and it shows on the trail. A narrower bar, shorter cranks, and smaller diameter grips allow lighter or smaller riders to glean every bit of performance from the bike. The Switch Infinity suspension provides superb efficiency and traction on climbs while a Fox 34 fork makes rock garden forays a blast. The bike is a truly versatile machine for those of you itching to explore all over the mountain, with a Thomson Covert dropper post, DT Swiss wheelset, and finally a sweet coral paint job, the Beti is indeed a thing of beauty.
