Welcome to an up close and personal look at the current Yeti Bike range 2018. By delving into the gritty details, we will reveal what makes them the ultimate performance mountain bike. The wide range of models means that whatever your poison, be it hardcore enduro trails or cross-country racing Yeti has something special to offer you.

From their inception in 1985 Yeti have worked tirelessly to develop an elite range of bikes and with some of the world’s best MTB athletes, including Richie Rude, claiming podiums year after year on Yeti Cycles it’s no wonder they are the go to choice for anyone wanting to take their biking experience to the next level.

What is the Key technology behind the latest models?

Whilst many aspects of a Yeti Bike make it unique its stand out features which can be found across the range are its super-light carbon frame and its patented suspension design, the switch infinity system.

The Super-light Carbon Frame

Each Yeti frame is manufactured with the highest quality and best performing carbon fibre layup and are available in two formats, the C-Series and the T- Series. See below for all the details.

Yeti Switch Infinity System 

How does it work yeti switch infinity system  How it improves the ride

The current line up of Yeti Bikes all carry the Yeti switch infinity system, which is a patented design that has been developed in conjunction with Fox suspension. It works by continually counterbalancing the squat position (through it's sliding rails), which in turn creates a bike that is optimised for climbing and stabilises the suspension during descents. To dig deeper into fully understanding the bike kinematics behind the design, you can always checkout the Bike Mag interview with yeti cycles

However, the bottom line is quite simple - it creates an extremely fast bike that eats the hills, descends like a God and corners like its on rails!
