Yeti is best known for it’s full suspension bikes, but it’s the ARC that really started it all. While a hardtail won’t ever have the same point and shoot ability of a full suspension bike it does give a degree of connection with the trail that can’t be matched.

Steve has always had a hardtail in his quiver, but when Yeti released the ARC he knew he had to have one. Built up on the burly end of the trail bike spectrum, this ARC is perfect for long days in the saddle, even when the trail takes a turn for the worst. A Fox 36 Factory takes care of suspension duties on the front, while a pair of DT Swiss rims and Industry9 hubs do their best to follow. Finished off with a Shimano SLX drivetrain, XT brakes and Burgtec finishing kit, it looks as good as it rides.
