In a world saturated with both carbon, long-travel all-mountain and ridiculously light cross country bikes, the 127mm travel Yeti ASR-5C fills an often overlooked sect in the world of dirt -- the classic mountain bike that's capable of handling conditions of both styles without batting a lash. Dressed in Yeti's Enduro kit, the ASR-5C Enduro Complete Mountain Bike is ready for years of hard riding with incredible reliability.

Inside its Golden, Colorado facility, Yeti refers to the ASR-5c as the 'cheater bike.' It's lighter than most cross-country bikes, yet it has five glorious inches of rear wheel travel to keep you grounded during all out attacks on the backside of the mountain. The high modulus, carbon fiber monocoque front triangle is optimized for stiffness. This unyielding structure, along with a 68 degree head tube angle, are what give the ASR-5 Carbon the steering precision and stability that it's known for.

The low slung top tube acts as a sturdy attachment point for the FOX FLOAT CTD rear shock, and it allows plenty of standover clearance for unexpected dismounts. A tapered head tube strikes the perfect balance between weight, durability, and steering precision. It houses a FOX 32 140 fork with CTD adjust, as well. Again, Yeti employs carbon fiber for the rear triangle. The whole unit is molded as one piece with massive chainstays, defining its lightweight and flex-free behavior. Each of the suspension pivots houses sealed cartridge bearings for a smooth ride, and lightweight pivot hardware keeps the overall weight respectable.

Even though it has five inches of wheel travel, the ASR-5 Carbon is no couch ride. Yeti's single pivot, Active Suspension has been tweaked on this bike to deliver a firm feel that allows for very efficient pedaling. Those that favor coasting over pedaling, and want more of a sensitive suspension, may want to take a look at the Yeti 575.

The Yeti ASR-5c Enduro Complete Bike rides on a Mavic Crossride Wheelset wrapped in Maxxis tires. Drivetrain duty is covered by a mix of SRAM and Shimano. Up front is an X7 front derailleur and a SRAM S1000 crankset with 22/32/44 tooth gearing. Out back is an X9 rear derailleur and a SRAM 11-36t cassette. Avid Elixir 5 brakes keep your speed in check, while an alloy TruVativ T20 stem, seatpost, and handlebar occupy the cockpit.

The Yeti ASR-5C Complete Mountain Bike is available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Raw/turquoise and Raw/white.

Please note that US Yeti dealers are prohibited from shipping Yeti bicycles to any country other than Canada, Mexico, and the United States.

Down for anything!

I've been riding an aluminum ASR 5 for 3 seasons now. I swapped out some of the stock components for some heavier AM/DH components and have been so pleased with the versatility of this bike.

This bike will tackle the hardest lift-accessed runs, but it's not a downhill bike. It'll cruise singletrack, but it's not an XC bike. I travel a lot, and usually don't have a lot of money, so this bike has served perfectly as a one-bike, do-it-all, quiver.

Spend some time on it, learn how it rides a trail, and it'll steal your heart.

Love it but had to get rid of it..

I bought this bike while living in Colorado and it was great on all the single track, but when I moved to Switzerland where everything is either straight up or straight down I had to sell it to someone smaller. The bike itself is light and playful but can handle everything my 200+ body could throw at it. I flipped it a couple of times on dirt and on asphalt but it still looks brand new. Next time I'm in the states I'm hoping to pick up a 575 or SB66 to bring back with me. I would highly recommend the ASR5 for colorado single track.

Lightweight slayer!

I absolutely love this bike. I have the 2011/2012 version and upgraded it with an XX build. this bike climbs super easy and descends even better! I put 2.4 on the front and a 2.2 on the back and it just HOOKS UP in the corners. Friends won't be able to keep up once you bring this guy on the trail.

Lightweight  slayer!
