    ASR-5 dogbone material

    What is the stock dogbone linkage made out of on an ASR-5 alloy?

    It looks and feels like injection molded plastic but I'd be surprised Yeti would use plastic for such an important component. Given the way the frame is designed, that dogbone looks to be subjected to a lot of compression and torsional stresses so I wouldn't think plastic would be the best choice.

    Is it carbon fiber, perhaps?
    I live with fear and danger every day. And on the weekends she lets me go mountain biking.

    I thought it was aluminum? I know that past 575's were Alu.

    +1 on the Aluminum. I think its an illusion as the machine marks and Annodizing may make it seem to be Delrin or another polymer based material.

    I'm certain they are aluminum unless things have changed. I've seen pics of broken ones.

    On my late 2012 ASR5c it's definitely alu and not carbon fiber. I'd expect it to be the same on the ASR5 alloy.
