Looking to step up and make a new purchase and been going back and forth between bikes. Mainly looking for a good pedaler that can also be really fun for downhill too. Was also looking at Yeti's 575 and the asr-5. Just looking for some input and your guys opinion on these bikes, thanks in advance!

Really fun to ride downhill I think takes the yeti 5.75 and asr 5 out of the equation. The switch technology imo found on the sb-66 is superior to prior yeti designs. I love the descending capabilities of the Enduro. It feels so comfortable and balanced the minute you get on the bike. Plus the suspension design is proven, reliable and easy to maintain. If downhill is more important the climb, Enduro all the way.

You cant go wrong with an enduro, solid-fast and stable

I was in this same debate and rode both bikes before making a decision. Starting with the Yeti that thing can PEDAL it feels like a hardtail going up hill its amazing. I took it on my normal loop so I knew the trail very well and loved every second of it. Yeti runs a little big in the top tube so watch out for sizing. The bike went up and down amazingly and if it wasnt for the deal I got on the Enduro I would be on the Yeti. I love my enduro right now though just as much. It feels like a dh bike going down and climbs like a billy goat. It does not climb as good as the yeti but still holds its own. You wont go wrong with this decision so just look for the better deal. The geometry for both rigs is pretty similiar, long, low, slack for the AM division

I had the SB66 it is actually for sale!!! I enjoy the 575 better. The SB66 climbs like no other. I really liked the bike but it was too big of a bike for where I ride.
The enduro I didn't like it as much. Doesn't climb as good. Bit more fun downhill.

If I had to choose all over again I would consider a transition covert or a Commencal meta AM or SX.
