Yeti Cycles has announced that it has added the option for riders to purchase directly from its own website.

Yeti has now opened up the option for US customers to purchase its bikes from Yeticycles.com alongside the option of authorized dealers and online partners. With the press release announcing the new direction, Yeti said its "commitment to independent dealers remains steadfast. Bike shops are critical in building local communities, supporting youth engagement, advocating for local trail access, and keeping bikes running smoothly, and Yeti will continue to support dealers in strategic ways."

The new direct-to-consumer program has been rolled out in the U.S. and uses bikes that are built-to-order at Yeti’s Colorado headquarters. When a customer purchases a bike online from Yeti it will be delivered with brakes bedded-in, tubeless sealant installed, and suspension preload and damper settings set up so it will be "ready to ride."

bigquotesOur customers have expressed interest in buying directly from Yeti Cycles and through our new program we’re able to deliver a premium online buying experience.Chris Conroy, CEO of Yeti Cycles

The past few years have seen a number of companies switch to offering direct online purchasing options with the likes of Specialized among the bigger names making the change.

 Why are people so down on dentists? They have to get a degree that costs like $400K, and then employ a bunch of staff who always seem like tweakers. It's not really that glamorous of a profession and as far as income goes, they never seem like mega rich or anything. I dunno, seems like a better idea to make fun of influencers or trust funders, or those people who would rather coal roll a cyclists...

 Tech workers always felt like the more appropriate crowd to make fun of. All the time in the world (relative to dentists), none of the talent, and bloated compensation packages starting at $270k and rolling up to $900k with a couple promos and a few years of tenure.

 I ride with a couple dentists. One is on a SB5 that still has 11speed, the other is on a used Wreckoning. They are both are fast measured by the Durango middle aged stick. So yeah, they rip.

That said, so long as everyone knows that dentists work very hard for a very long before making a buck and then work very hard to provide a vital service, then it’s all in good fun.

Making fun of Influencers is too easy and would just be mean.

 dude, the average dental practice in the USA makes 880k a year......... let that set in..... the "average"............

I worked for a dental lab as a mechanical engineering making dental implants, I networked with dentist directly with my boss / owner of the business. If you have a dental practice you are making hilarious money.

 @BoneDog: That's gross revenue. Now subtract staff salaries, purchase and upkeep of equipment, rent/mortgage on office space, insurance, professional training, etc., and it's "very good" money, not "hilarious".

 canadian dentists are terrible. the first question you'll get when you're looking for a new dentist is, what does your insurance cover? based on that they will sell you unnecessary procedures, xrays, you name it.

 @MtbSince84: I own a manufacturing company that provides a product that nearly all dentists have in their practice. I know a LOT of dentists and am a regular speaker at CDS, GNYDM and Pacific Dental. Dental practices make incredible profits by-and-large. To the point that they are completely price-insensitive on items. It's ludicrous, DCI is one of our main distributors and they will take our product at wholesale discount, then mark it up 100-150% over MSRP (which is around $500 USD to begin with) and dentists will buy 15 at a time for their practice without batting an eye. At shows they SEE our prices and the prices from other suppliers like ADEC, Midmark etc, and they still buy from DCI. They have no idea, and honestly do not care about an extra $7500-9000 on top of an already $7500 purchase.

Sure they have staffing and other overhead, but they're still taking home at least $300-500k a year.

 Dentist tend to be one of the few really high paying jobs that has a decent work life balance*. In pretty much every hobby dentist have a rep of having super expensive gear (cause they have disposable income and the time to enjoy it).

*not accusing them of not working hard, it just that they dont have the absurd hours that doctors and lawyers and high end tech workers often have.

 @MtbSince84: I guess if it makes your broke ass sleep better at night, sure man, simplify it. But the reality is, when the average practice is 880K, you would shit your pants to know what that distribution looks like. I can tell you first hand, top practices are making absolute bank more then you or I want to believe, and yes nearing the hilarious money range without question.

edit: not saying you aren't correct in your later comments, but a business that makes $880k a year in today's market, has material overhead, requires a lot of insurance and has a couple employees is not making "hilarious money". Especially when you consider that if the dentists are the practice owners, they are "self employed", and if they aren't, they get a salary provided by their boss, out of that $880k.

 @mtmc99 has it correct. "Dentist bike" isn't necessarily a hit on dentists; it's a play on the stereotype that dentists have a fairly unique combination of disposable income and spare time required to ride Yetis (or Cervélos). Tradies also ride Yetis (but not Cervélos).

Also thanks for emphasising work/life balance, although it's sad that modern society apparently makes that disclaimer about laziness necessary in the first place. Hustle culture and the gig economy are out of control.

 A-yes, dentists are reasonably well off but not rich.

B-they don’t usually ride Yetis, even out west. They are nervous about chipping or breaking teeth and trend towards XC bikes and blue trails.

So…….if they splurge on a nice bike that might not be the best value it’s usually a Niner. Or something like an Epic or a Scalpel.

According to the Govt, ACC and Uni Otago the Occupation with the highest risk to your health in NZ is dentistry.

 @cueTIP: I used to do tradeshow design work a couple of careers ago and we had a couple of dental industry clients. We had to design a display for the full set of tools they offered, and we needed measurements to do that so they shipped us one of everything. I think it was over $120,000 worth of scary tools, diamond bits and other shiny bits of stainless steel. It was a crazy amount of money and the root canal tools still haunt my dreams.

 @nickfranko: I've been in FAANG for the last 5 years, my dude. How do you think I know about the culture in these companies?
  • 2 0
 @pixelguru: I think we need to establish that "tech workers" means people who work in FAANG companies (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google). In recent years, a couple other companies have popped up that have renown comp packages (Salesforce, DataBricks, Twilio, etc), but by and large, these are the people to be made fun of.

If you have the talent/luck/ability to interview decently, you're doing a disservice by not trying to get into one of these companies. My last two hires had 4 and 5 years of experience respectively and our offers were $295k TCC and $325k TCC. Hang around for a few years and equity refresh grants and bonuses will push them toward $400k easily. That stock vests quarterly, with no cliff as well. So a savvy worker will stay for their new hire grant and get a new job at a competing FAANG company as soon as it expires so that they can get another new hire stock grant + a level or two bump.

It's a genuine, bonafide way to hack the American economy. I've seen 32 year olds making over $1m a year and working 40 hour weeks.

 @pixelguru: I think Yeti does everything right with their website. It's one of the only websites of a bike brand that has an actual experience and transports the products features in a premium way. And it even dies a good mapping them to the actual use case of the bike. The combination of copywriting and image/graphics is definitely on point and probably cater to their target group. And if you look at Apple for example, the do the exact same thing. It's just harder to sell DTC with such a website. However as I understand it, that's not Yetis priority they just want to tap into the potential of a small group of people wanting to buy directly online.

The Transition customer is just a completely different person. And more in line with the active users here on pinkbike. We just have to understand that different people want different things. And sometimes we are just not the target audience.

 Somehow, Yeti might actually be providing "value" right now. Not that either option is reasonable, but a SB160 with XX is $3.5k less than a Fuel EX. I get that they have different uses, but who buys a Trek in that comparison?
  • 12 1
 People who want an ebike? I think you are comparing the FuelEXe (the ebike) to the SB160 (pedal power).

 Must be nice for Yeti to pocket that 30% cut dealers were getting from a Yeti bike sale. The insult here is that they didn't dare to lower the prices.
  • 3 1
 There are a couple of potential reasons for that.

Firstly, this B2C model hasn't been rolled out everywhere yet, so chopping 30% off (which is possibly more than what dealer margin is at this point either way) would massively complicate things with their existing dealers both within the locations that they now offer B2C in and outside of it.

Secondly, by having part of their sales come from B2C they can use that additional margin to absorb any other costs that might be coming their way. Just as an example, a few brands have had huge price increases for 2024. If Yeti now have some extra margin coming in it might help them reduce the need for those big increases.
  • 5 1
 Should probably have added in as well that they will have increased costs for customer service, prepping bikes to be shipped to end users rather than dealers, shipping costs, etc... Again, not the full dealer margins-worth of costs, but it's not like they can just totally chop that margin out.

 So I get all the hate about price and dentists jokes, but SB160 in X01 Factory build is just 400 bucks more than Ibis HD6 in XT Factory build. And if I am not mistaken Ibis is a long time fav of PB simps due to price. I do like ibis more, but if I am pedalling most of the times to that mountain top, I would probably choose Yeti with it's infinity switch thing, or actually no... I would go with freaking boutique Revel Rail 27 and have best long travel pedal bike out there

 Rail 27 not Rail 29?
  • 5 7
 I have a Revel Rail 29, the actual seat angle is way to slack, to much change in TT length with seat height, the suspension platform is good but blowing bearings left right and center, and finally the reach is way to short throughout the range vs the size. to be honest, its like buying an IBIS Mojo from 2016... but even worse due to the seat angle. I am not impressed and have one hanging in my garage as we speak. I would stay away at all cost.

 Would not be surprised if a bunch of other brands start doing this. The price of new is too much for allot of people these days. if they can figure out how to get prices lower for consumers and still support local dealers they will sell more bikes.

 Tough call for manufactures. One side you sale more bikes, other side you are putting them in the hands of people who are mechanically challenged. Solid gamble. As an IBD we get a fair amount of D2C brands through our door with people making big mistakes with bike assembly, so bike shops win however you look at it. Only way bike shops will ever go out of business in poor management, just like many other small business. D2C moves dont impact us much.
