YETI Cycle ARC Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 1

Congratulations on your purchase of a new yeti.

We are confident your new bicycle will exceed your expectations for value, performance, and ride quality. Each frameset and component has been custom specified and designed to enhance your riding experience. Whether you are a beginner cyclist, or a seasoned pro, your Yeti bicycle will provide endless hours of two wheeled fun.

This model specific manual is designed to be used in conjunction with the general Yeti Owner’s Manual and the manuals supplied by the suspension manufacturers. If you did not receive the Yeti owner’s manual or the manual provided by the suspension manufacturer, download the materials off the Internet, or contact your local dealer.
Bicycling can be a hazardous activity even under the best of circumstances.
Proper maintenance of your bicycle is your responsibility and when done properly helps reduce the risk of injury and damage to your bicycle.

This manual outlines basic setup and maintenance recommendations of your new Yeti. Because it is impossible to anticipate every situation or condition that may occur during the assembly, setup, and maintenance of your bicycle, Yeti recommends that all service and repairs be performed by your local authorized Yeti Dealer.

This manual contains many “Warnings” and “Cautions” concerning the consequences of failure to maintain or inspect your bicycle.

The word “Warning” indicates a potentially hazardous situation in which , if not avoided, could result in serious injury or death. The word “Caution” indicates a potentially hazardous situation in which, if not avoided may result in minor injuries or damage to your bicycle or a component of your bicycle. Be sure to read and understand all of the Warnings and Cautions listed in the manual.

Warning: Make sure you review and understand the warnings, instructions, and content of this manual and accompanying manuals for your bicycle.

Warning: Technological advances have made bicycles and bicycle components more complex and the pace of innovation is increasing. It is impossible for this manual or the accompanying manuals to provide all the information required to properly repair and/or maintain your bicycle. In order to help minimize the chances of an injury, it is critical for you to have work performed by an authorized Yeti retailer.

Frame Assembly


Make sure your tools are in good condition. A worn allen key can round the hex on a bolt not allowing for proper torque. Torque settings are listed throughout the instructions and on page 10 of this manual.

It is important to prep all bolt threads. The instructions denote whether to use a Loctite compound or grease. Reference Exploded View for assembly part locations listed in parentheses.

Warning: Service on Yeti bicycles requires special knowledge and tools. Yeti Cycles recommends that all service and repairs be performed by an authorized Yeti Dealer

Lifetime Warranty

All 2019 (or newer) frames, including the Switch Infinity, are covered for life against damage due to manufacturing defects for the original purchaser. Paint and finish are covered for 1- year. We will repair or replace, at our discretion, any frame we deem defective. There are a few conditions: you must register it online at and you must take it to an authorized Yeti Cycles dealer for processing. Warranty does not cover damage due to ordinary wear and tear, neglect or intentional destruction. From a slingshot or your truck. If you happen to have a crash or non-warranty situation, we’ll get you back on the trail with a reasonable replacement price. Same conditions as above.

Lifetime Warranty applies to all 2019 and newer frames (including the SB100). Model year 2018 and older frames will be covered under our previous warranty (5-year or 2-year based on time of purchase).

Simple as that. No fine print.


YETI Cycles is not responsible for any damages to you or others arising from riding, transporting or other use of your bicycle. In the event that your frame breaks or malfunctions, YETI Cycles shall have no liability or obligation beyond the repair or replacement of your frame pursuant to the terms outlined in the warranty.

*If you have a warranty concern, please contact your authorized Yeti dealer.
