Yeti ARC - Simply Elegant
The Yeti ARC, The ultimate hardtail, riding the ARC reminds us that we are on a down country bike like the SB115 but with hardtail character.
The 67 Degree head angle is perfectly suited to an all round hardtail, very similar to the rider weight / sag adjusted 67.6 degree head tube angle of the SB115.
In use they feel very similar. Climbing and descending are perfectly balanced.
The ARC accelerates like the high end product that it is, Riders wanting more comfort should consider the SB115, having said that the Arc has gotten more forgiving in this iteration, and is a firm favourite.
Sizing comes up a lot for both the 115 and the ARC, and its direct comparison to the Transition Spur. If you wish to add more capacity to either bike consider sizing up to match the Spurs reach geometry for down country riding, the spur being much longer in reach by about a size up or 25mm. However our rider feed back suggests if its all about the up stay in Yeti's size range.
