The Yeti ASR-5 Carbon Mountain Bike Frame builds on the no-holds-barred ASRc, giving its rider 127mm of travel — almost 30mm more than the ASRc. This results in a platform that holds the potential to be either the ultimate trail bike or an endurance race machine.

Back in '94, Yeti produced a ground breaking thermoplastic called ARC AS LT. Aided by Kaiser Aerospace and Penske Racing, this bike broke all of the rules. Considered a downhill bike at the time, only a handful were produced — For Race Only, of course. It was a prime example of Yeti’s dedication to advancement through the application of space-age materials and pioneering suspension systems.

Fast forward almost two decades and take a look at the ASR-5 Carbon. Featuring a new weight and strength optimized layup, the 4.75-pound ASR-5 Carbon leaves no feature overlooked. Frame details like oversized chainstays and the ability to convert to a 12x142mm thru-axle ensure pinpoint handling. You'll also find a clean, internally routed derailleur cable on the chainstay, and replaceable chain-slap protectors that keep the ASR-5 Carbon looking good for years to come.

In keeping with the ASR-5's backcountry nature, a 120-140mm front fork will match up nicely to the Active Suspension's super-efficient 127mm of travel. Yeti chose the highly versatile, tuneable, and reliable FOX CTD Adjust to handle rear squish duties. This rear shock features the three position Climb, Trail, and Descend settings for simplified tuning on the fly.

The rear end provides clearance for 2.35-inch tires and a max of 160mm rotors. You'll need a 30.9mm seatpost and a 34.9mm traditional mount, bottom-pull front derailleur.

The Yeti ASR-5 Carbon Mountain Bike Frame is available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large. Yeti didn't want to hide its high modulus skills, so the ASR-5C comes in Raw with either White or classic Yeti turquoise decals.
