雪人的ARC

Yeti Cycles ARC Review: The Mighty Hardtail MTB Returns

该合金赛车复合硬尾山地车推出雪人循环品牌在1985年不过从阵容了4年的沉寂之后,ARC与报复的回报!

Back in the day, Yeti’s hardtail ARC, ARC AS, and ARC AS LT were the bikes to beat.他们控制在越野,速降,双回转掌舵与大小姐宙斯,朱莉安娜·费塔朵,库尔特Voreis,和Miles罗克韦尔赛车。

然后,在2016年,念念不忘其新的交换机和无限全面停工,停产夜啼的ARC,大大的雪人球迷懊恼。由雪人总部位于科罗拉多州戈尔登,今天挥杆,你会看到原来的ARC硬尾坐在大厅旁边停止自行车的画廊。

Now, theARC与29英寸的轮毂回 - 在全碳,而不是合金。新的自行车模仿雪人的SB 130和SB150的感觉,它有望成为同样受欢迎作为原始ARC。第35周年纪念版在12小时内被抢购一空。现在任何人都可以有一个标准的雪人颜色和构建。

该ARC Is Back

According to Ryan “Rocket” Thornberry, Yeti Cycles bicycle category manager, although the last generation of theARCwent away in 2016, the demand continued. This was especially true from Europe and parts of the U.S. that don’t have quite as much elevation as the Rockies, where Yeti is based.

Shorter travel makes some trails come alive and feel more fun. And there’s such a thing as too much bike for some trails. So when the trails you’re riding aren’t all chunky shelves and baby-head boulders, this bike will make you hoot and holler — and it won’t hold you back.

雪人的ARC经验

Yeti’s New ARC

“A hardtail is a completely different beast,” Thornberry said. “We started with the question, ‘What would be a hardtail that rides like a Yeti?’”

该team tried to build the ARC with the same geometry as its long-travel 29ers, but the rear wheel lost traction and the ARC didn’t have the calm, composed feeling of other Yeti bikes.

所以雪人工程师在勒住达到15毫米,以控制后端。这带来了中轴重心更靠后的车手的中心,这样你可以使用你的腿为你的震撼,当你降和站立。

由于自行车的雪人族是所有关于翻录下坡,该品牌从原来的70度更新ARC的头管角度,以更下坡面向67度。然后,雪人specced与2.6英寸轮胎福克斯130毫米避震叉。

硬式自行车车架

雪人ARC第一次乘坐评论

为了使坐在ARCfeel the same as sitting on any other Yeti bike, the seated position is much the same as on an SB130 or SB150. The ARC’s top tube length is 604 mm (size M), which is quite close to the 602mm top tube length on those bikes.

松弛和稳定的67度头管和76度的座管的角度把你带入一个高效的爬坡位置,让你捶雪人上最轻的自行车攀登任何的顶部。

这是一个硬尾,但它不是一个越野自行车,而ARC的2.6英寸轮胎反映出这一点。该ARCfeels delightfully stiff without being jarring. On the trail, the bike was loose and playful, easy to maneuver, offered precise steering, and was so much fun. It was smooth and fast, with clean lines and an elegant simplicity unique to hardtails.

在技​​术创新的岩石,大批量轮胎吸收喋喋不休,让我骑积极,播出了桌面和促进关踢球。作为雪人答应,那感觉就像所有其他的雪人的自行车,当我爬到船上我骑。所以我没有三思滚动G-出岩石板和跳跃在步道上每一个功能,我看到了。

Adaptable ‘UDH’: Specs and Components

Riders who buy this bike will ask different things from it. Racers may use a large front chainring, for example. So Yeti used a 55mm chain line on the crank — a newish standard that lets theARCaccommodate more teeth up front — big tires, and a derailleur cable with Boost, not Superboost spacing. So if you were planning to upgrade your ARC with your existing carbon wheels, for example, you still can.

ARCalso specs SRAM’S UDH (universal derailleur hanger), which both SRAM and Yeti expect will be adopted globally across brands. This means that the next time you bend your derailleur hanger in Nepal, Quebec, Argentina, or Australia, you won’t need to find a Yeti dealer to buy a new one.

因为品牌的预测所有自行车商店将携带UDH,夜啼计划把它设计成未来的车型也是如此。据索里伯里,但是,它不能在追溯交换现有模式。

其他很酷的功能,包括制动器安装在座椅上的逗留 - 美学,不是功能决定。索里伯里告诉我雪人想保持制动卷起的出路,并保持自行车找干净。

自行车使用的电缆和端口,旨在防止这些电缆作响完整的内部管。购买构建与AXS滴管或移和自行车自带端口盖。一个额外的厚翅片链拍击保护提供了进一步降低噪声。

“这些天自行车是那么好,如果自行车使任何喀哒声,你认为螺栓出来,” Thornerry指出。“我们所做的一切让这个自行车沉默。”

指出你的车轮下坡,让“呃卷

这是一个雪人,和该品牌的超级粉丝喜欢过叉雪人自行车。因此,我们问索里伯里,如果他希望在这个硬尾,它已经具备了130毫米悬挂一样的 - 这对我来说,感觉恰到好处。

“Oh, yeah,” he said. “There’s a crew out there committed to ‘lunch riding’ everything we make. Check yoursocial media feed. It’s only a matter of days.”

该ARC is simple and classic, and for me, riding a hardtail took me back to the origins of MTB and reminded me that you don’t need the most complicated tool for the job. Just get out there, point your wheel downhill, and let ‘er roll.

该new Yeti ARC is available in Carbon and Turq builds, ranging from $3,600 to $6,800. Find the full specs这里.
