Yeti turns 35 this year and (of course) there’s an anniversary bike from the storied mountain bike company. And it’s none other than the ARC, the dream hardtail of the 90s. The then Easton-tubed hot rod is now carbon with updated geometry more suited for all day shredding than pure speed. It now comes with 29in hoops instead of the good ‘ol 26in.
Besides a coat of classy throwback yellow and turquoise paint, Yeti went lengths to make it one of a kind such as custom painted Fox 34, SRAM XX1 Eagle group with custom anodized chainring, crank extracting bolt, inner rear derailleur cage, derailleur bolt, as well as painted brake caliper and adapter.
There are also a turquoise Chris King headset and etched hubs laced to match-themed rims. The rest of the cockpit is also similarly tuned with turquoise Race Face Turbine R stem, ODI grips, WTB Silverado, and a carbon handlebar down to its Fox dropper lever.
Basically turquoise everything. Each of the Anniversary models are priced at $9,900 starting today. Act fast, Yeti only made 100 of them.
