Mid July 2020
YETI Announce 35th anniversary bike, the much unexpected relaunch of the YETI ARC, with standard frames thought to be expected in 2021 (Internet rumour says Yellow or Grey), the frame is very much an all mountain frame/aggresive hardtail. 130mm forks up front on 29er wheels. The frame is built to be durable, stiff and not to win a worldcup XC round, although I’m sure it would win at the decent and gnarl sections!
Some Pics of the bike, its been all over the net, so I doubt these are too breaking news for you!
Team Gear, All items sold out - apart from Hoodies, 1 or 2 left of some sizes.
Look out for a small second delivery late August if there is anything left in the USA!
Word on the street is there will be a 35th anniversay bike launched in with the 2021 model season later this year. Look out around August/September.
YETI DELIVERIES are back! So I can fulfill your most turquoise desires again.
WORLD CUPS, EWS & ALL SPORTS CANCELLED OR POSTPONED.
Master of the Gnariverse. Bold claim for some. Fact-checked humility for the SB165. A bike created to get after whatever you’re getting after. The slackest sled in our line-up. With the most travel. Coil-shock only. For the steepest. The angriest. And the most vengeful. Wherever you’re going, it already has you covered. At home outside the tape, beyond the norm. Taken on the trails nobody talks about. Trusted on the lines where mistakes can’t happen. Comfortable with all the chaos. Please when you‚’re puckered. Fearless of your fear.
"Race bred". It's not just a slogan printed on the SB130 top tube. Racing is the sole reason we exist. We've been pinning on numbers and pinning the throttle since 1985. So when choices had to be made on the SB150, every single one was made in the name of unbridled speed. See also: unabashed, unapologetic. Some may say it's too slack, too low, too long, too different. And we say they can shop elsewhere. But for pilots who know how to push hard and reap reward, this bike quickly earns the title of top whip. The ultimate example of breeding a bike to beat the clock.
Some say the SB140 never met a dirt it didn't like. We agree in spades. What's your pleasure? Drag a bar. Make an edit. Stay out after dark. Dust off the blueprints for the loop-de-loop. Try it. Land it. Or just stay at it. The undisputed champion of up to no good. Toboggan run, anyone? Happy to pedal. Greedy for more. Boost confidence as you boost everything. The mayor of jibtown, proudly wearing the rip crown. The SB140. Down to fun.
The rebel yell of the middle child. Fed a steady diet of super-tech climbs. Refined to perfection by the demands of blistering speed. The SB130 was built to crush the biggest terrain. But before you put it in a box where full backpacks and all-day pain define the game, keep in mind this bike was also designed to be tossed around and toyed with. Cat with mouse. No trail "too" anything. Point it up or down. Enter a last-minute enduro just for the eff of it. We say no one bike can rule all. But the SB130? One bike that rules.
Last we checked, "XC-Style" racing on a mountain bike doesn't stop once you crest the climb. Crushing souls on the decent is more than half the fun. And a hell of a lot more than half the point. The SB100 was designed for racers who understand this. Worry not if you find yourself lined up next to a weight-weenie on an "up-hill only" machine. The SB100 tends to dismiss such questions in a hurry. Designed to fly down as much as soar up, this is the bike we've always wanted to make. Short travel meets Switch Infinity. Precise meets capable. Time-gobbling meets transcendent.

Pics from Jareds Facebook
Jared races again! - Not much is happening in the world, but down under, Jared Graves has been racing again! Here is what he said on his facebook -Had a deadset pearler of a day at the @hiddenvaleadventurepark epic yesterday. The biggest and best xc marathon on the national calendar with 100km of proper mountain biking. My first marathon and I feel like I didn’t make any major rookie mistakes. 10/10 will do again! Won’t be able to stomach an energy gel for a while though. Time for a week off now, come at me pizza! @yeticycles #sb115
Big Mountain Enduro - Despite claiming 6 of the top 10 positons, Yeti failed to take the win, with Mitch Ropelato (Santa Crux) Taking the victory by little over a second from Yeti Factory team racer- Shawn Neer, the smallest of margins. Yeti took also 3-4-5-8-9th places. Almost dominating the entire event in numbers if not with the top step.
September 11-13th sees the 2nd round back in Colorado.
EWS NEWS - Sam Hill (Nukeproof) has pulled out of the much shorter season, as no overall will be placed. It remains to be seen if any of Team Yeti will compete in any EWS races this season.
EWS starts 30th August - No race of Nations this season.
Will the team be on SB150 or SB165?
NO more Yeti Tribe!
Yeti has taken the decision to stop using the word Tribe or calling its owners group a tribe.
any aggregate of people united by ties of descent from a common ancestor, community of customs and traditions, adherence to the same leaders, etc.
a local division of an aboriginal people.
a division of some other people.
a class or type of animals, plants, articles, or the like.
Animal Husbandry.¬ a group of animals, especially cattle, descended through the female line from a common female ancestor.
some segments of the people Native to America have found the word tribe to cause offence/be offensive/have history with offensive meaning.
To me, the word was a kindly, affectionate, light hearted and bonding term to describe a group of like minded individuals. With all good meaning, a part of something no one of ever saw an ounce of bad in. However not originating from the USA, I was unaware the noun was so offensive. It was always used with good intention, and never had any negative connotations. I am still not convinced a noun, can be assigned to specifically one or two groups when its meaning covers many many millions of people, animals and plants etc around the world.
Yeti announced a new bike in July, the SB115 is hitting the shops and the trails soon, there is all the detials on www.yeticycles.com and some cool pics too!

Richie raced the SB150 to victory.

Richie & Jared Drug story------
Been a little late posting this, as I wanted to see all the facts. In a nutshell, yes they failed the test. But, they are not aware of taking any substance, so it looks as though its been digested accidentally.
The outcome as far as I can tell, is they will both, or could both get a fine, or a ban. Length of time could be 6 months, however, this wont affect Jared, it could affect Richie, and some tales I’ve read means he could miss the start of the EWS season, but may not affect a DH season. This appears to be hearsay, full news as I hear it.
