 whats wrong with the recently released 303R-DH? why have they brought a new model out only a year after??

 for those who canĀ“t find the rail... http://www.pinkbike.com/photo/3764977/

 I am probably wrong but from my understanding the 303R-DH has a longer wheelbase, not great for tight cornering found on most world cups. And the 303 has a wheelbase that expands through the travel, allowing for faster speeds through technical sections involving square bump impacts. The 303R does not have this feature. This new frame does have a expanding wheelbase but, because it only has one rail, so it should be lighter than the original 303. And whats a rail? ....

 DarkElements101.

That's not their target audience, not going to do it. They pride themselves on making premium frames/bikes and even though they would gain customers with cheaper frames they would most likely sacrifice build quality, and would lose customers. Take an intro IBM/Business class and it will be all clear

 Same theory as the 303rdh but the rail is on the swingarm (making not behave like a single pivot). And the link is on the shock. The 303rdh is similar in theory (altho not design or function) to a four bar linkage. I Ride em i love em. Keep them coming yeti. Another winner in my book.

 here's what i think my opinion from racing is that with one of those u need to greese the slide every now and then and that is in a prime spot to get owned by mud i think it still needs work right now i'm gonna have to say thats a failed design

 I'd guess it probably doesn't have a rail

 if you looked at the news story and the other images you would be wrong. And Yeti doesnt actually make a DH bike without the rail design.

 Correct you are. Tough to see the rail in this pic though

 Sorry about my noobism and not reading the news but is this prototype going to replace the current 303 DH? p.s super sick bike. great design!

 joram-adams, probably not, actually im almost 110% sure it wont, yeti introduced the 303R-DH and they kept the original 303 simply because alot of their world cup riders still liked that bike over the new one, and the are very different bikes for different courses so depending on the course they will probably switch between bikes alot, there is also a new prototype of the old 303 out now, you can see it if you check out some of the videos in the yeti vault on thier site, its an awesome looking bike
