There are many terms, including that e-word where goggles and open-faced helmets are warmly accepted, to describe what Yeti started with the original 575. Completely revised, yet surprisingly true to the original, Yeti's 575, dressed here with the X01 Complete Bike kit, provides the marvelous ride quality expected of a seasoned veteran -- in a package that expertly balances performance with value. The 575 defined mountain biking's trail/all-mountain category, and the rebirth of this historic nomenclature stays true to that original's goal -- with a healthy dose of modern standards. This includes 27. 5in wheels, 12x142mm rear spacing, a direct mount front derailleur, PressFit30 bottom bracket, and ISCG tabs. The 575 is slotted under the SB (Super Bike) line, but that doesn't mean it's compromised in any way. The two Yetis have similar numbers on the geometry charts, with a few standout differences. For one, the 575 is available in X-Large with a generous 25. 6in top tube. In fact, throughout the 575 size run it's about a 1/2in longer in the top tube than an SB-75, while they share nearly identical wheelbases. The head angle on the 575 is also about a 1/2 degree slacker, measuring in at 67 degrees. The reason for these differences is to make the AS-equipped 575 ride similarly to the Switch Technology suspension found on the SB bikes. The AS suspension design arcs the rear wheel forward, and shortens the wheelbase slightly, which is why you'll find a little more length in the 575's cockpit and a slacker head tube to ensure stability. Switch Technology is great, but it's not for everybody, and it is why Yeti provides the simpler AS system on its 575. It uses double-row bearings at the main pivot, keeping the original's reputation for reliability alive. The butted and shaped rear triangle is connected to the hydro-formed 7005 alloy front via a FOX FLOAT CTD adjust with Kashima coating. This ensures the 575 climbs and descends like the highly capable bike it is. Matc...
