Strengths:    Rode the 575 for 18 months, fantastic all rounder, climbs great with propedal engaged and let it loose on the way down and it like a magic carpet with rockets!

Weaknesses:    As smooth as it is that was also an issue, due to the way it smooth everything out it make the ride a little boring?

Bottom Line:   
Fantastic bike all round.
I changed mine for an ASR5 for a bit more feed back from the trail, never looked back.
Now I ride a SB66c, wanted the feel and response of the ASR5 but with the longer travel of the 575 for the big hitting days on the trail.

Strengths:    Looks way cool, lite, works great for a variety of trails, if you only have one bike, this could be it

Weaknesses:    Not a super climber, but good enough. Some have had trouble with the CF.

Bottom Line:   
I believe my frame is a 2010. I bought the frame, collected components and built it from there. I am really happy how this bike turned out--I'd build another one in a minute. The bike is light, handles very well, and works well for cross country and all mountain riding. This is a great all-purpose bike, I would not be afraid to tackle anything on it. Fox suspension works very well with this bike, I highly recommend it. Yeti is expensive, but it is the real deal. Not everyone has the knowledge and tools to build one from the frame up, which is the most affordable way to obtain one--other than buying one used. However, if you are in the market for a fun and good handling bike that you can use for just about any riding--from cross country to bike parks, I highly recommend the 575.

Strengths:    Well-balanced
Extremely fun to ride
Great traction and handling
One do-it-all trail bike


Weaknesses:    Can't really fit a water bottle inside the front triangle

Bottom Line:   
If you can only afford one trailbike, this one covers a huge chunk of the riding spectrum. I bought a 2007 frame and built it up with durable parts at 28.5 pounds. Whatever trail I go to, I never feel like I have too much or too little bike. The single pivot suspension keeps your wheel glued to the ground whether going up or down. You get some brake jack, but only when you're being a whuss with the brakes on a downhill run. I'm 6', 215 lbs. and this used frame has held up great to all kinds of jumps and drops. Obviously it's not as efficient as a hardtail on climbs, but for the traction you get on rooty climbs I would not trade it. I'm just a poor college student, but with this bike I never feel envious of the rich guys' whips. I'm in the Yeti Tribe for life!

Strengths:    thru axle set front and rear, burly downhill performance, a good climber, great build kit

Weaknesses:    lower bb, somewhat narrow rear triangle(my maxxis minion 2.3 sometimes rub mud or stuck rock on the frame)some front wheel flop when climbing steeps, a bit of brake jack that can easily be overcome with a change of technique

Bottom Line:   
i love my 2011 model. compared to my 2007 the new model is even more fun bombing downhill. its not quite as lite, or as good a climber but its still very nimble and flickable when flying down. If you like the climbing of the old 575 you might want to check out the asr-5 instead. if you loved downhills on the old 575 but wanted to ratchet it up a notch or two this is your bike.

Date Reviewed: February 7, 2012

Strengths:    Claws through steep technical climbs like a scared monkey while providing a stable, plush yet responsive descent. Somehow manages to make every trail twice as fun...magic?

Weaknesses:    So far, the only weakness i have noticed in the bikes design is that it does suffer from brake jack a lot more than other suspension designs. However, i may have found that this has actually helped me to develop better braking technique.

Bottom Line:   
An amazing all rounder of a bike. I have thrashed this bike in the two months i have owned it, riding pretty much everyday and the more I ride it the more I love it. I'm in the process of building this bike up to be a light weight AM machine, something which can still keep up with the XC guys while shredding on the down hills. This is definitely a bike to seriously consider if your searching for a ride on the XC side of All Mountain.

Strengths:    Excellent all around XC, trailbike, all mountain bike. Stiff, strong, well balanced frame. Awesome finish and details.

Weaknesses:    None that I can tell.

Bottom Line:   
This is by far and away the best bike I've owned and ridden. Have had a stable of various full suspension and hard tail bikes and none can compare to the Yeti for the forgiving stable ride it gives. Have used it for medium length XC rides, and a ton of trail blazing here in the midwest and rode it at the 2011 24 Hours of Moab in Utah. It performed flawlessly. Climbs great and descends some pretty gnarly stuff. Has never left me wanting for more travel or capability. No plans in the future of swapping out for another full suspender. I see no need. Next bike is a Yeti ARC hardtail. Love the brand!

Strengths:    Wish I could give this bike six chiles for value. The high-end components are a godsend for those of us who don't have $6,000 to spend on a bike.

It's the kind of ride with solid performance in almost any situation — the type of ride that only comes from years of evolution and fine tuning by Yeti. Considered the SB-66, but I wanted something tried and true. It took me a couple weeks to get the suspension dialed in, but now it's the closest to nirvana I've experienced in a lifetime of mountain biking. I think a part of us always wishes we had a couple more inches of travel for Moab-style boulder bombing, but this bike handles literally anything else. It may look like too much bike for smooth rolling cross-country trails, but it rips those up like a BMX bike with shocks. My first ride, I decided to see if it could jump. Next thing I know, my head's in the stratosphere and I'm shouting things that would make a porn star blush. Stuck the landing and knew it was the bike for me.

The Fox suspension soaks up the big hits and irons out the choppiest of trails. I've bottomed out the rear shock in softer settings, but it didn't feel like it was hitting bottom. The knarliest of hits cannot swamp the Fox 32 Fork, where I've yet to use the last 3/4 inch of travel. Mountain Bike Action gave the bike a low score for breaking, but it feels absolutely solid to me, as does everything else on the bike.

Only had the bike three months, and am still babying it a bit, but haven't broken anything.


Weaknesses:    The only thing I've had a hard time with on this bike is on steep, rocky climbs. It climbs like a goat on smooth climbs, but it stalls when your front tire hits a large rock or root. Any suggestions? Don't know why adjustable travel forks went by the wayside, but this bike could have benefited from one. It still climbs much better than the GT Force.

Hope to someday see the engineers devise a way to see the numbers on the rp23 shock so you dial while riding, but for now I'm content to memorize which setting I'm in and which way to turn for the next setting.


Bottom Line:   
This bike is beefy, sporty, fast and fun. I spent a lot of time researching and demoing bikes. My second choice was a Trek Rumblefish, which is slightly better at climbing and maintaining momentum. But the 575 is just more fun. It rips around turns and launches off jumps in a way that no 29r can. In our quest to shave off half ounces of weight and have perfect pedaling efficiency, we've forgotten why we got on the bike in the first place as kids. This bike reminds me every time.

Weaknesses:    TIRES TIRES TIRES

Bottom Line:   
Well if finally dried out enough here to get out at least a bit here in east TN so I was able to get the new 575 Enduro out and get the setup tweaked a bit and establish some first impressions.

First on the build from Huck and Roll by in large I was happy except for the limit screws on the Rear D which were way off even though it stated on the build sheet it was set. The chain jumped off the inside of the cassette twice before I get it set correctly on the side of the trail. Other than that everything was either right or close which is all you can ask for mail order.

As for the bike itself I am very pleased with the overall feel and quality of the frame and suspension and how well they work together. As I have stated I have been riding a Maverick ML8 with a top of the line build and custom/recently tuned DUC 32 fork and rear shock by suspension Experts in Ashville NC. The Fox Float is plush and provides excellent control to the point you forget it is there which is pretty amazing. There is more flex than with the double crown DUC 32 but it does not seem to hamper the performance or cause any stability or tracking issues. The RP23 shock works perfectly and the Kashima coating adds a level of refinement both front and rear.

The rest of the build works well. I have not ridden the 10spd drive train and must say I enjoy the 36t cog on some of the steep technical trails I ride around here especially with my current level of winter fitness. I have no isues with the Avid Juicy 5 brakes which everyone seems to pan on MTBR so far work just fine. They don't have the raw stopping power of the Formula Oro Puro's on my ML8 but I confidently was able to use one finger without fear on steep downs.

Climbing with the new RP23 set to 2 in plush/none climbing mode is steller. I was expecting some level of bob however if you pedal smoothly and use good form there is no detectable loss of power even on extended climbs. The only place it falls short and it's minor is in large bump compliance when climbing. With the ML8's rearward movement as it compresses if you hit a large root while climbing it sort of eats the bump and pushes you up and over the root. On the 575 I feel more of the edge on root and more vertical movement, nothing that stops you from climbing just about anything just not as composed on those large mid hill roots that we have a ton of around here. Some fiddling with the air and shock setting might help but it is so outstanding every where else I think I have it pretty close. One area the 575 outshines the ML8 is neutral handling. I seem to be in the perfect position up or down. I never feel like I am going to go over the bars and can be very aggressive on steep down hills with lots of sharp off camber turns. Back to climbing I am over the pedals in perfect position do lay down the power.

So what is the down side?? For me the knobby nicks fall short of what the 575 is can do. After the first ride I swapped the rear for a 2.2 Mountain King which performed much better even though it had some miles on it. The Knobby Nick is flat scary on wet off camber roots and are blown away by the Conti Black Chili Trail Kings which I will put on the Yeti sooner rather that later. If you live in a dry area the Nick's might be OK but if you get wet mixed trails look elsewhere. BUT for Yeti's entry level build if all I can find that needs replaced it the tires it's a home run since geography and personal taste impact tire choice so much.

If you are looking for an awesome trail bike the 2011 575 is it and if you can get a deal on one I suggest you go for it!

Strengths:    Beautiful Asthetics. nice welds, hydroformed frame, Graphics, long travel, easy pedaling, fast downhill, excellent components

Weaknesses:    Swalbe Nobby Nics are sketchy, need to run at low PSI.

Bottom Line:   
Pedals up great! much better than my KHS. Descends very controlled and fast. The suspension absorbs all the rough stuff, long travel feels like it has much more with the drcv and boost. Brakes are just breaking in, they have very nice modulation. Beautiful frame, hydro formed top down tubes. much stand over. WTB Rocket V seat is my favorite mt. bike seat. Thompson stem and Seat Post is a nice touch.DT Swiss M1600 are light look cool. Swalbe Nobby Nics at 30 PSI were sketchy, should be run at lower psi.
Carves and flicks quick and controlled.
This bike rocks! I highly recommend it.

Strengths:    Great climber, jumper, cross country, grocery getter ;)

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I've owned two 575s. Both have been wonderful. The first one was a 2005 'knuckle' model that lasted until 2009. I pushed the frame to its limits for 4 years without worry, and then it started creaking. I thought it was the bottom bracket, but after replacement the sound persisted. The next time I cleaned the frame, I saw a 1" crack near the seat tube by the bottom bracket... aluminum low cycle stress fatique FTL... time for a new frame. My second 575 frame is the newer hydroformed model, which is physicallly less appealing but mechanically much more solid. I prefer the old rear triangle and still use it on the new frame. When I ride other bikes, I can feel how efficient the 575 is... some 4" bikes feel like sand compared to the 575, even though they cost more. If you're looking for a long travel bike that can climb, cruise, jump, handle gracefully with neglect, and outperform its peers, the 575 is for you.

Strengths:    great all around bike. handles downhill surprisingly well.

Weaknesses:    constant bike maintenance required. i own 3 other mtn bikes and this one by far requires more mechanic attention than the others.
company doesn't stand behind their product.


Bottom Line:   
ridding this bike for the first 6mths was awesome...then things started to fail:

constant creaking. still have yet to root cause.
dogbone bearings (not covered by warranty. claimed as normal wear and tear)
rear derailleur cable eye/guide broke off carbon triangle (not covered by warranty. yeti said a tie wrap around the swing arm works just fine. they could not justify a new $400 triangle for a broken cable eye)

the bike looks like i bought it at walmart. it has tie wraps all over the swing arm and it makes so much creaking noise, i need ear plugs when i ride.

bottom line, the 575 is fun to ride but a nightmare to own. i recommend spending your hard earned cash somewhere else.
