We spotted a new Yeti eMTB
a couple of weeks ago, and now it looks like Yeti may be closer to launching it as they've begun to tease it. I don't see a review in the upcoming news for the Pinkbike homepage though, so as far as I know you unfortunately won't be seeing a review of it tomorrow or even this weekend.
The video features some glorious type 2-3 fun, but if you don't fancy watching the whole thing, you can see the eMTB at 1:17 and 1:31 or just check out the screenshots below
Jared Graves had a post on his Instagram
back in June about an "engagement" he had with Yeti that was higher priority than racing the Enduro World Series. We're guessing he'll be the rider featured in the official launch video, whenever that comes out.
|So... 2am this morning I get the call to not get on the plane due to more covid related dramas. Found out through the misfortune of @joshcarlson__ situation that non US citizens have to do 2 week hotel quarantine if coming from Europe to the US. Seeing I was due to do rounds 1 and 2 then back for other engagements in Colorado the call was made by the team that I won’t be doing @world_enduro round one and 2 because what we had planned back in Colorado is a higher priority. Yet another let down, and at this. Stage I’ll only believe I’m back overseas racing again when I’m actually on the start line. Yes racing is high on the priorities but it’s not all I’m doing for sponsors anymore. But if anyone else is planning some intercontinental travels, it would be a good idea to thoroughly check every country’s covid policies. Could save you a lot of stress. I’m just glad I didn’t find out once already in Italy.—Jared Graves|
Better still, include a gearbox and have a high output (without idler or tensioner) to match a high pivot point.
Kickstart now an option!
Tires? Cheaper than ebikes/mtb
Transmission? Cheaper than ebikes/mtb
Gas? Like someone that spends +10k would be worried about gas
Waiting for ebikes be banned from /have limit access to trails
These mopeds should have plates, mirrors, lights, because at the end, it is a motorbike. An electric motorbike on pedals.
Who cares if it's control by wrist or through pedals
Ride yer damn bike.
I bought a bloody Trek with 10% of my income
You're all over the place. You've decided how you feel about them and that's fine. Being able to afford something has little to do with whether or not that thing is good or bad. We just trick ourselves in to believing one way or the other so we feel better about not being able to get it I suppose. Bunch a weirdos out there
Think you missed my point there dude, to be fair I didn’t express it too well either!
My point was I bought a Trek Rail which cost 10% of my income, so if that Yeti is 10% of this guy’s income then he should buy it, if I earned $150k I would buy a Yeti eBike!
Try one and you'll see :-)
It's more to do with better acceleration coming out of turns and into jumps than I could ever manage without the extra power.
Also, why d'you reckon my comment above was Below Threshold????
I joke, I joke. Hugs and kisses
