Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Yeti ASR. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

13 reasons to buy

  • Experts relish the ASR’s combination of “excellent” traction and positive kick.
  • The carbon frame’s balance of low weight and stiffness impresses testers.
  • Reviewers appreciate how the steering remains responsive in spite of the stability imparted by the super-slack head angle.
  • According to testers, the ASR is truly at home on tight, technical trails.
  • With its 120mm fork travel, 66.5° head angle, and 75.5° effective seat-tube angle, the ASR is fully up-to-date with current XC race-bike design.
  • Experts say this bike is both highly capable on XC race circuits and huge fun when riders just want to shred.
  • Reviewers savor the “supple” suspension’s ability to handle a wide range of hits and speeds.
  • The two-piece cockpit and non-integrated cables make adjustments and maintenance much easier than when fully integrated.
  • On descents, the ASR performs like bikes with much more suspension travel, say experts.
  • All ASR frames are carbon, with the top-tier build boasting a wireless-only TURQ Series frame.
  • The T3 build’s Fox Transfer SL dropper is “incredibly smooth.”
  • Yeti employs dedicated carbon layups for each size of frame.
  • Yeti offers optional carbon wheelset upgrades on TURQ Series builds and suspension upgrades on Carbon Series builds.

7 reasons not to buy

  • Experts lament alloy cranks and wheels at these prices. Only the top-tier T5 Ultimate build gets carbon wheels and cranks.
  • Testers say the tall and compact geometry that serves the ASR so well in tight, technical sections reduces stability at speed.
  • The short seat tube requires a tall seatpost, limiting dropper choice.
  • The front-end cable management is busy compared to options with fully integrated cable routing.
  • The T5 Ultimate build’s 30% rear sag mandates use of the lockout.
  • The top-tier wireless-only frame isn’t available as just a frame.
  • Some testers find the TwistLoc lockout control (T2, T3, and T4) cumbersome to use.

Bottom line

Yeti’s venerable ASR XC race bike, now in its fifth generation, boasts super-light carbon frames, compact geometry, and a choice of six builds. Testers laud the “blazing fast” ASR’s race-day competence and playtime exuberance. Uphill traction, pedaling efficiency, downhill pace, and confidence-inspiring handling in twisty technical sections impress reviewers, who praise the “supple” suspension and “comfortable” cockpit. Experts lament weighty alloy wheels and cranks (except on the T5 build), but Yeti makes up for this with other premium components. Overall, experts deem the ASR an outstanding XC thoroughbred that also offers great fun at a competitive price.

Those attributes, plus an easy-to-live-with frame—two bottles in the main triangle, threaded BB, two-piece bar and stem, and standard cable routing—make the ASR attractive for racers and trail riders.

Yeti ASR T3 First-Ride Review

It’s nothing short of an up-to-date cross-country bike that’s ready to get its elbows out between the tapes while being pushed through aggressive, mile-munching rides and comfortably at that. It could be lighter but one thing’s for sure, the ASR doesn’t take itself too seriously.

The ASR will best serve anyone seeking a more planted, controlled, and perhaps relaxed (at least with the stock stem) ride out of a lightweight machine.

The Yeti ASR – (Fast) New Dog, Old Tricks

Just don’t go pretending it’s a trail bike. It will let you know where the edges are in short order… don’t try to pretend it’s something other than a race bike. Revel in the freakish speed and the zero-effort, lightning-fast responsiveness.

A Cross-Country Legend Returns [German]

The 2.4″ Maxxis Rekon at the front… has great grip and works well with the chassis over wet roots and stones. Despite the wet conditions, the ASR went downhill quickly. Here, the brand’s trail genes are apparent, because it feels like more than cross-country.
