What makes the new Yeti ASR 5 alloy so special?

What do you think about the ASR 575?
Everything they said about this latest 575 can be said about the ASR 7. Inspires confidence, fun and cushy, but it blows thru the rear travel quickly. I would love to upgrade to a SB66c, but expenses are keeping me on the 7 for another season. Had a 7 myself. A PUSH’d rear shock, coil shock or, Double Barrel air would fix that for you.
Is the mountain bike 575 any good?
It climbs like a mountain goat, and is stable on the descents. I’ve taken it Whiteface Mountain and had a blast on the blues and blacks of the lower mountain. I’m sure there are a lot of bikes that do some things better, but the 575 has proven to be a fun and reliable mountain bike.
How much does the ASR 5 weigh?
The new ASR 5 is designed with versatility in mind. First and foremost it’s a trail bike, but its carbon back end and 2.5kg (5.5lb) frame weight (the full-carbon is 0.34kg – 12oz – lighter) result in a bike that won’t mind the odd race or enduro either.
What are the pros and cons of the asr5 alloy?
It’s stiff, responsive and comfortable. Technical ascents are a breeze. On the descents the ASR5 alloy forces you to ride it, but in a fantastic way. It doesn’t ﬂatten trails, it skips through them. The bike is light and accurate without ever feeling twitchy or skittish, largely thanks to that slack head angle.
What makes the Fox rp23 ASR 5 a trail bike?
First and foremost it’s a trail bike, but its carbon back end and 2.5kg (5.5lb) frame weight (the full-carbon is 0.34kg – 12oz – lighter) result in a bike that won’t mind the odd race or enduro either. The Fox RP23 rear shock is tuned to stay slightly stiffer in its mid-stroke to allow the ASR 5 to feel nimble and to stop it bogging down.
