Xc Full Suspension Mountain Bike Frame Yeti ASR Beti Turq 2017 It features the same top-tier, hard-riding, trail shredding construction and geometry found in the ASR Turq, just with a lighter tune to better suit smaller riders. While we can go back and forth about the merits of gendering bikes by colorway, there’s no arguing that the ASR Beti is a great option for lighter riders of all genders looking for a whip-fast XC ride that still holds a hint of that famed Yeti enduro aggression.This ASR Beti also carries Yeti’s new Turq designation, which represents the most advanced frame the company can make at any given time.
Xc Full Suspension Mountain Bike Juliana Joplin Carbon S. This is in part thanks to a slacker head tube that tracks with control through rocky sections, and a stiffer rear end that allows for flickable maneuverability. And not to mention 110mm of travel, allowing you to tackle terrain from the chunky rock gardens to long climbs loaded with tight switchbacks on this more-capable-than-ever XC and trail machine. This year, the Joplin moves away from its XC race dedicated roots, and slides into a versatile all-mountain spot.
Xc Full Suspension Mountain Bike Niner RKT 9 RDO 5 Star X01 Eagle Complete 2018 Though your passion for XC hasn’t faded, your relationship with it has grown with time, and rather than a hardtail with just a little squish up front, you expect a little more from your bike these days. Devour bumps, clean race courses, and dive into big lines with more plushness than your younger, hardtail-riding self could’ve dreamed of with Niner’s RKT 9 RDO 5-Star Mountain Bike.

Xc Full Suspension Mountain Bike Yeti SB100 Turq X01 Eagle Race Complete. If you’ve been a faithful rider of Yeti for some time, you’ll know that a short-travel 29er isn’t unprecedented in their line, seeing the previous ASR Carbon occupied this same genre, offering cross-country racers the efficiency to blow the doors off the competition, but with a rowdy alter ego that made it far more capable than its limited travel figures would suggest. As such, you’ll find Yeti created the SB100 Turq XO1 Eagle Race Complete Bike to fill the void left by the previous ASR Carbon, but with updated geometry figures to make it far more confident over technical sections of trail, plus a compact version of their Switch Infinity suspension platform with 100 millimeters of highly efficient travel that excels on climbs and across long distances seen in multi-stage adventure races. We typically think of cross-country bikes as one trick ponies that barely trouble the scale which makes going uphill less of a chore but the sometimes anorexic build can be slightly unnerving and requires a good test of faith when pushed through its paces on technical descents.
Xc Full Suspension Santa Cruz Chameleon 29 R Complete. Santa Cruz revamped the Chameleon in 2017 to be longer, lower, and slacker than ever with its lengthy front end, low-slung 12. 4-inch bottom bracket, and relaxed 67. 3-degree head tube angle.

What they have created is the pinnacle of Italian performance, and the object of desire for every bike aficionado on the planet.
Campagnolo Super Record 11 Rear Derailleur. Harnessing this attention to detail for the disc-equipped crowd of professional cyclists, the Super Record 11 Rear Derailleur accommodates the slightly longer throws of your rear derailleur paired with a disc-specific wheelset. This disc-friendly redesign comes by no accident, accompanying the launch of Campagnolo’s Ergopower H11 Disc Brakes. Besides its disc-friendly redesign, this Super Record 11 Rear Derailleur retains the same design as the previous Super Record, meaning you’ll reap the benefits of a carbon fiber parallelogram and cage, alongside titanium hardware for maximum weight savings without sacrificing one bit of strength.
Mountain Bike Frame Yeti SB5 Turq. For this, you need a bike that is nimble and efficient on the climbs, with the capability to slay any descent. The SB5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame fits the bill, a bike that’s equally at home putting in serious miles on epic all-day adventures as it is ripping steep, chunky lines in the backcountry. It uses Yeti’s highest-grade carbon fiber, with smooth and efficient Switch Infinity suspension that leaves us blown away every time we ride it.
Drivetrain Rotor noQ Carbon Round Chainring. Utilizing the same light and efficient structure as its ovalized siblings, the noQ ring boasts a CNC machined alloy base reinforced with a carbon fiber finish for an added touch of flex-resisting stiffness and that classically carbon aesthetic that always adds a few extra style watts to the ride. This construction method nets claims of an 8% reduction in weight compared to fully aluminum rings, as well as a massive 20% increase in power-transferring stiffness that’ll be much appreciated when the tempo ramps up at the end of a long, grueling road race.
Wheelset Mavic Allroad Elite UST Disc Tubeless. Elite road bikes just aren’t built to tackle the rough back roads, laced with gravel and grit, and your mountain bike will leave you overloaded with unnecessary suspension — not to mention weight. And this is, unsurprisingly, where gravel and cross bikes fall into the mix, with enough room for loftier tires, wider rims, and the comforts that keep us going for miles, like the Mavic Allroad Elite UST Tubeless Disc Wheelset.
Wheelset Mavic Comete Pro Carbon SL UST Wheel. You’ll likely see this wheelset under the pros on World Tour Team AG2R-La Mondiale on the flatter, faster races, albeit in tubular guise, but for the rest of us not lucky enough to have a team car following us, the tubeless version is an ideal option since, more often than not, we aren’t pinning on a race number. Even with its aero profile, these are some of the lightest wheelsets in its depth category, at 1635 grams, and the whooshing sound of speed is so addictive, you’ll be inspired to grab some gears and go on the attack. The Cometes are Mavic’s most aerodynamic wheels, short of a full disc, and the carbon rim offers exceptional stiffness and a lightweight build paired with the impressive rolling efficiency of road tubeless and exceptional braking when you have to scrub off all that newfound speed on tap.
Womens Clothing Yeti Smuggler Hoody Womens. Made from exceptionally soft and moisture-wicking fabrics with a DWR finish, this hoody will keep you warm and dry even when nature has other plans. Yeti utilizes a longer cut through the body and sleeves for extra coverage to prevent unwanted the shock of exposure to chilly air, and a zip through collar protects sensitive skin from the elements.
Womens Jacket 7mesh Industries ReGen. Either you get cold and wet, or get wet and steamy, or stay mostly dry and overheat. 7mesh Industries, however, is making things a little easier by building the Re:Gen Women’s Jacket from Gore-Tex Active Shell, which makes it as breathable as can be while working with fully-taped seams to provide a bombproof rain barrier that’s specifically designed to be worn on the bike. Accordingly, you’ll stay dry from the inside and from the outside, all while enjoying a slim-fitting, stylish jacket that weighs just 210 grams.
Womens Jacket Castelli Alpha RoS. We certainly don’t want our apparel to be our excuse for not getting out, so if you’re in the market for a thermal jacket that offers excellent protection during times of precipitation, take a look at the Women’s Alpha ROS Jacket from Castelli. It blocks the weather, but the outer layer and insulating layer are separate, so you can choose how much insulation and protection you need, even mid-ride. Part of the reason dressing for winter riding is so difficult is that we need to stay warm for most of the ride but if the pace picks up or there is climbing involved, we’ll quickly turn into a sweaty mess leaving our muscles feeling stiff and us shivering for the rest of the ride.
Womens Jacket Castelli Cromo Light Womens. The people at Castelli readily admit this, and the Cromo Light Women’s Jacket is the direct result of this dislike. The Cromo Light’s combination of wind-resistance, thermal insulation, and the ability to unzip the former without compromising the microclimate of the latter are the cycling equivalent of torches and pitchforks, the perfect tools for exorcising the monstrous temperatures of cold-weather riding. The brushed, fleecy lining of Castelli’s Warmer fabric constitutes the majority of the jacket’s construction, with panels of Voile Whisper situated on the front and across the shoulders for wind protection.
