Very exciting news today as Yeti release their first ever full carbon hardtail frame. It is built around 29″ wheels for the larger sizes and 27.5″ wheels for the smaller sizes.
Pricing and build kit options available on Yeti NZ bike page. The first ARC Carbons will be arriving in New Zealand by the start of May, but numbers are very limited, so contact us directly or via your local Yeti NZ service centre if you are interested.
FROM YETI …
We never like to think of ourselves as slow, but we were definitely deliberate in our approach to 29ers. And as with all things, once we committed, we committed fully. The hardtail Big Top, the first 29er we were proud to call a Yeti, debuted in 2010 after years of above- and below-the-radar tinkering by a core group of Yeti employees who were enamored with big wheels. It was no one-off. The following year we rolled up on a full-suspension 29er, the ridiculously fun SB95.
And now we’re back again, taking everything we’ve learned over the years about bike racing, big-wheel handling, and material engineering to deliver the all-new ARC Carbon. Twenty years of ARC racing heritage updated with fast-rolling 29-inch wheels and a light, snappy, high-mod carbon frame. For you smaller riders, we made the small and extra small sizes with mid-sized 27.5” wheels for added stand over and improved handling.
Basically, take Yeti’s most storied XC race bike, make it even more stable, add bigger wheels, then make the frame as smooth and responsive as only the best carbon frames can be. That’s the ARC Carbon.
