I happened to see this in the May issue of Outside Magazine and thought I'd share. Not sure how it got in before being announced by Yeti.

Note the DT Swiss XM 490 rims and the obviously carbon fiber frame, not to mention the name on the seat stay. Yup, it's the long awaited SB-95c, a.k.a. my next bike.

So..where is the weight advantage ??? I got my sb95 below 27 pounds with going light but yet stiff components.....granted I went with a 1x10 setup, but I would have expected it to be in the same range as the tallboy.
Figure a carbon version of anything is going to only be about 500-600 grams or so lighter than an alloy version of the same bike (give or take a couple hundred grams in some cases)

A 26-27 pound 120-140mm trail bike is pretty darn good IMHO.
