Product Details

Frame/Shock

TURQ Series Carbon FrameTURQ Series bikes are made with the highest quality carbon fiber available and offer the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance. The result is a bike that feels smooth, solid and aggressive. Every bike is tested by the best racers in the world, including EWS World Champion Richie Rude, an in-house testing team and ambassadors around the world.

Fox DHX2 Factory Rear ShockReady to race, right out of the box. Known for its supple feel, the DHX2 has all the World Cup level features you could ask for. It is, after all, the same shock the pros ride. Featuring an entirely new chassis and damper, delivering enhanced tunability, smoother performance, and more progressivity than ever before.

Shock AdjustmentsCoil Spring Preload, 2 Position Open, Firm Lever, High Speed Compression (8 Clicks), Low Speed Compression (16 Clicks), High Speed Rebound (8 Clicks), Low Speed Rebound (16 Clicks)

VVC (Variable Valve Control)VVC is a proprietary variable valve control system that allows for external fine-tuning of suspension performance. VVC achieves with the twist of a knob what typically requires the time consuming and complicated task of completely disassembling and reassembling the fork.

Integrated Frame ProtectionThe frame protectors for the down tube and chainstay are custom molded to match the frame. This guarantees a proper fit and adhesion to the frame for years of protection without the need for replacement or additional adhesives.

Integrated Axle and HangerThe integrated axle and derailleur hanger system is built for simplicity and strength. Utilizing a left-hand thread to secure the hanger allows Yeti to incorporate the same machine piece for the axle retention. A clever little system the engineers spent many hours on that might get overlooked.

Switch Infinity SuspensionSwitch Infinity utilizes a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel. This provides excellent anti-squat characteristics for superior pedaling performance and ideal suspension characteristics as it gets deeper into the travel.

Wheel Set

DT Swiss EX1700The best aluminium all mountain wheels. Period. That is what DT Swiss designed the EX1700 SPLINE wheels to be. Whether this is actually the case is up to you to decide. But they've given it everything needed to dominate the mountain. Light and robust welded rims, perfect tubeless compatibility for grip and puncture resistance as well as their reliable 350 hubs with Ratchet technology and a 36 tooth engagement. With a 30mm internal width, they're a perfect platform for aggressive enduro tires.

Maxxis Assegai Front TireThe Maxxis Assegai tire is named after the iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people of South Africa. Greg Minnaar, a native of South Africa, thought it was a fitting name for a tire ready to do battle on the mountain. The tall knobs punch through dust and loam to find traction, but also offer support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. While other tires excel only in certain conditions, the new Maxxis Assegai is built to go fast everywhere.

Maxxis Minion DHR II Rear TireWith side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF, but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped leading edges to improve acceleration and sipes to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control.

Additional Features

Fox Transfer Dropper SeatpostThe latest Transfer keeps its smooth action and low-height stack design, but shaves 25g and updates its internals for even easier serviceability.

Yeti Carbon BarsMade with the highest grade carbon and spec'd on all TURQ Series bikes. Each bar has cut indicators for fine tuning bar length.
