    Straight from the Halls of Yeti!!!!!

    AS-X returns to the fleet

    The AS-X returns to the fleet as a frame/headset/fork combo. This bike is perfect for freeriders and aspiring DH'ers looking for one of the toughest do-it-all bikes. It can navigate tight technical sections, pedal comfortably uphill, take big hits with either 6.4" or 7.1" of travel, all while its 1.5" headtube and plush 2009 Fox Float 36 RC2 with tapered steerer fork give the front-end incredible stiffness. The frame comes with a Cane Creek headset and 2008 DHX 5.0 rear suspension. Retail $1829

    Cool! Put me down as another who wants to know is this the same basic AS-X frame? Assuming so...

    Either way, more gravity rigs in the Yeti lineup = mo betta!

    Probably just the frame/shock/headset.
    It would be nice if Yeti would offer the tapered steerer forks as they can be hard to find.

    Clarifications:

    The AS-X is not the AS-R Seven. The AS-R Seven is due out this spring. We are currently testing the final revision of that bike and it is looking and feeling very, very good. Part of the delay involves mounting everything form a single ring crank with a chainguide, to a double and even a triple to ensure that everything will work well.

    $1829 is the price for Frame, Shock, Headset and Fork.

    The fork, as stated, is a tapered steerer tube. The headset will come with a reducer cup for the top.

    Happy Holidays!

    What timing

    What timing as I just bought a used 05 ASX last week. Do we know if the ASX remains unchanged or has it been updated in some way? Either way, mine should be pointed downhill in the next week or so and I can't wait! So far it feels pretty good.

    Really? So it's no longer called Seven or will it be ASX 7? Got me confused all along. And no pics yet?

    Per Yeti's post, these are two different bikes. There is still a Seven model that they are refining into the production model and then there is the AS-X. Changes to the AS-X haven't been stated here. Personally I don't care at all if they make design changes to the AS-X, this bike is already dialed. Maybe do the AS-X in the team color. I've got a 07 model in the raw/white and it looks beautimuss! Hope they keep this paint scheme.

    This pic. had me wanting an AS-X for a long time.

    At that price, I will be getting one, I will be tossing the headset and installing a King on it though.

    I just realized I have a full build kit minus frame and fork for it.

    BTW what seat post size is it going to get.

    My 2007 ASX is that same white/raw color and looks clean and mean to me. Hope Yeti will keep this color and I wouldn't mind seeing the ASX in the team colors either.

    Mine came built up with a FSA Pig headset with a reducer to fit the 1-1/8 steerer tube on my fork, but since I have changed that and went with a Chris King Devolution headset to fit the same fork and lovin that upgrade. Not taking anything away from the FSA, but the King headset is smoother and looks way cleaner without that external reducer.

    This is awesome news for 2009. The ASX is a sweet bike and I can't wait to get one into the shop. I wonder if a DHX air will fit on it?

    Why switch to the tapered headset/headtube? It had a perfectly fine 1.5" headset which you could either run adaptors with or run a full 1.5" steerer tube fork....like my Totem. Which would be awesome on an ASX. A small grumble, but i like having a nice selection of forks to choose from.... That is unless Fox is going to release a longer travel version of the 36 with a tapered steerer.

    Is the ASX going to come in Small and Xtra small size as did the new 575's?

    I'm with you Paperplane, I just don't understand the reasoning behind this tapered headtube stuff. What are we gonna save in weight? About a farts worth! Glad I'm not a manufacturer for forks or headsets, this would be a major headache!

    This is great news!!

    I had just started to look around for a replacement for my, 04 AS-X, but it looks like I don't have to look any further The AS-X is the perfect addition to my 575!

    I really hope You Yeti guys keep the 1.5 steerer. My only suggestion is you make the rear frame a bit stiffer, with Maxel or a threw axel, and that you make the geometry adjustable, like the concentric shock bolt on the new 'R models. That would be great!!!

    Happy trails

    I don't know why there is such a fuss....the only thing with a tapered tube is the fork from the frame kit (probably to stock only one 36 fork for the kits of ASX and Seven)

    so the fork is tapered, but the headtube isn't, headtube is 1.5"...the top headset cup will use a reducer to accept the tapered fork
