    Unfortunately, that person must have been misinformed. We have samples in house and production stuff on the way, but we're not going to have a big boat full of new product anytime soon. More likely, we'll be air-freighting stuff in as our factory finishes each batch.

    Sorry to be a downer, but again, I figured you guys would rather hear accurate info.

    Seems like there must be some mistake with the pricing though.
    SB-95 Carbon Pricing is $3990 Frame/Axle RRP
    ARC – Carbon Pricing is $2690 Frame/Axle RRP

    Unless it's in yen or something...

    Ahh, noticed that's an Australian mag, so probably in aussie dollars, I heard they always seem to get charged a lot more for everything bike related too. Anyway, ignore those numbers for now I guess.

    Yeah, we get absolutely caned on pricing it's about $200 AUD more expensive than the sb66c for comparison - that's about $200 USD more

    Probably the way most XC bikes should be.

    But MSRP frame prices are well beyond ridiculous. With so many options out there it just does not make sense.

    Pricing is getting out of hand for all bikes. When I bought my 5C frame a couple of years ago I said to myself "I can't believe I'm spending this much on a frame." The 95C looks like it will be close to 1000 more. Seriously, 5 or 6 g on a bike? We have to have our heads examined. That said, I'll probably be riding one in a couple of years (I'll look to end of year sales like Jenson).

    A note on pricing

    US MSRP:
    ARC-C - $1999 (Same as another very popular carbon 29er HT)
    SB95-C - $3200 (Same as the 66C)

    I'm happy to see that the rumours of a carbon hardtail were true. Are the measurements and geometry the same on the ARCc as on the Big Top?

    The reference in the article to the slacker head tube (which the current BT has) left me scratching my head though as the BT was sold more as an AM hardtail than a XC bike. The original ARCs were known for their steep head tube angles. Not to get caught up in the bike segmentation argument (AM vs XC etc), but it does leave me wondering what the intended target audience is.

    I think the idea to make the XS/S sizes of the ARC-C in 27.5 is a brilliant move and makes very curious about future offerings by Yeti.

    I was told the new ARCc would have a slightly steeper head tube than the BT. Will be interested to see specs. Could be my new race whip...

    I have to say that I am interested in the 27.5 carbon arc. I am 5'6" and have a hard time finding a 29er that fits. Kudos to Yeti for looking out for us short guys.

    Theory on ARC 650b



    Come on...for a guy who stopped mountain biking in 2006 and ignored the sport until November of last year, that was a pretty good prediction, wasn't it???

    Really? so Australians are getting slugged again? An extra $200 because it's a 29er bike?

    OK - pricing in USD now in alignment - will retract my previous comment as they are inline with the market and in some cases - maybe a better value for their builds!!

    Head tube angles on both the ARCc and BT are 70 degrees. But there are differences in the other measurements. I was also considering this as my XC bike. I'll just have to find one to demo now.

    Aw, c'mon, man. What fun is that?! This is the internet, where your best option is always to jump to a conclusion based on limited information, then express OUTRAGE over the details of a poorly founded hypothesis.



    Haha. Just busting chops. If you scroll through the archives here and Ridemonkey, you'll probably find I'm more guilty of this than anyone (I specifically recall losing my sh!t years ago when the tapered headtube was first announced).

    Anyway, I'm glad everyone's stoked on the new bikes. We've got a ton more tricks up our sleeves for next fall/winter/spring, so stay tuned.

    Both bikes look awesome! Personally, I'm really stunned by the ARCc. Somehow that thing managed to avoid my gut reaction of "here comes yet another carbon 29er hardtail." The lines on it are absolutely beautiful, and the teal works very, very well.

    Hey JP - had to come correct - simple as that - been a yeti rider and fan for a fair few years - and it was the 575 that truly changed the game for me and turned me into a mtb'er - I suspect one day in the not to distant future Ill be a yeti rider again - once I get past a wedding and move this summer

    Wait until you see it in person. I normally don't get geeked out on this sort of thing, but the shaping of the tubes is super cool. We spent a TON of time/money on industrial design because we wanted it to look as good as it rides.

    Was hoping for a 6.5-7" travel AM/Enduro/Freeride replacement to the venerable ASR7... and what I consider replacing my 575 with eventually... Alas...

    From these new Sea Otter unveilings, the ARC is the cooler release of the 2, and really more stoked on the S and XS with the 27.5 wheels.

    But my real hope for new Yeti product did not materialize...

    I'd suggest trying a 66. With a Fox 36 on the front and a properly setup rear shock, it feels like a bike with 7" or more coming down hill, and a wicked trail bike going up. In my opinion, it's quite a bit more capable than the ASR-7 ever was, and the bonus is that you don't need a pole vault to get over the top tube. ;-)

    I don't mean to be a downer... and appreciate the response John P...

    but your reply basically indicates to me that a longer travel 6.5"+ 26" wheeled bike (DHer non-withstanding) is not something to hold my breath for from Yeti...

    I was in the same boat as you were until I got my 66. Part of the uniqueness of the Switch suspension is that it uses travel very efficiently. If I need any more suspension than I would be on my DH frame. It's that good.

    Google Eliot Jackson Antarctica. That trail ends a few yards from my back yard and, except for some of the longer doubles and a couple steep drops, I clean mostly the same lines on my 66 that I do on my DH bike. There's a couple spots I don't hit with the same speed or abandon, but I would't hit them on a 170mm trail bike either. Anything that is too much for my SB66 is going to be too much for any trail bike, with me on it at least.

    A 160 fork changes the 66 dramatically and a DHX RC4 makes it a great park bike.

    I can vouch for this statement! Saw all of them in person today at Sea Otter and "pure sexy"!

    Also other info I was stoked to hear from today is that the SB95c is 2 lbs lighter than the SB95!
    Will post .y pics soo and will be back at SO on Sunday!

    Available for order now with delivery being mid May - but you better get your order in as I am sure they will be selling fast.

    They are air delivering the bikes to get them here fast - I am guessing this will happen until they catch up with orders.

    This statement is plain silly! I have both and the 7 is an underrated incredible bike that was shot down by short legged people like you who were afraid of the standover! Im 6-1 with 31" inseam (no cricket legs by any means) on a large and it is a non issue! The 7 is behind the 66 a bit, not by far when it comes to climbing and XC but is in the lead when pointed down hill...

    Yeah, either short legs or large dangly bits.

    I must admit I was concerned with the lack of clearance.

    The 7 is a lot more burly looking, I'll give you that, but I wonder how much of the better downhill performance is due to the coil spring vs. the extra inch of travel?

    Both nice bikes. I'd probably take the 7 myself for lift-served stuff. It would be overkill on all the trails where I have to pedal though. I envy folks who have trails nearby that would make use of the 7's capabilities.

    Slightly off topic... In the new SB95C video, what trail is that in Fruita, specifically the section at about 2:40? It's been used in several Yeti ads. I'd love to ride that.

    At 2:40, he dropping into Horsethief Loop of Mary's Trail. There are shots along Horsethief and the rolling single track was out at 18rd.

    Just to supplement that: you're seeing the same section shot multiple times. That little piece of Horsethief Bench (as you drop off Mary's and down on to the loop) has been used on countless magazine covers and a lot of adds...but it's only a couple of hundred feet long.
