Learn more about the Yeti ARC Fork Options
Stock: FOX Factory Float 34 FIT4
The FIT4 provides a 3 position On The Fly Compression control with Open, Medium and Firm settings.
Upgrade: FOX Factory GRIP2 damper
Some riders may prefer the high and low speed compression controls of the GRIP2 damper. Chat with our team about your riding to learn if this is something you should consider on your Yeti ARC.
Air Spring and Volume Spacers
The FOX 34 provides riders a range of setup options using air spring as well as volume spacers.
Suggested sag is 15% for a firm feel and 20% for a plush fork. On the stock 130mm setup 15% equals 20mm of sag. 20% will use 36mm of sag. It should be noted that hard tail riders may prefer a stiffer fork than other styles making the 15% sag with more aggressive ramp desirable.
The 130mm FOX 34 is factory spec’d with 2 volume spacers (bike manufacturers may or may not change this). The 130mm fork can carry a maximum of 5 volume spacers.
Do not install more volume spacers than the FOX advises. Installing more than the maximum volume spacers will result in product damage and potential for injuries, etc.
The FIT4 damper provides Low rebound control (LSR).
There are 10 clicks of adjustability on the FOX FIT4 rebound.
The FOX FIT4 has a 3 position On The Fly switch with Open, Medium and Firm compression settings. (shown in blue on the image above)
The FIT4 also offers riders 22 clicks of low speed compression adjustment in the OPEN mode. (the black dial in the center of the damper)
Learn about suspension setup basics on the following tabs. Each tab has a video with the basics of Air Spring / PSI, Volume Spacers, Compression, Rebound (or watch it all in one place with the final tab).
Each tab has a text section with a bit more in-depth look at the typical MTB suspension settings and how they intertwine.
PSI / Spring Rate
MTB suspension must accommodate a wide range of rider weight. To achieve this nearly all forks and rear shocks use an adjustable air spring.
By varying air pressure riders set a desired sag, or percentage of travel that the bike uses under neutral loading.
Modifying this sag percentage will change small bump compliance as well as bottom out characteristics.
Learning how to Pre-Charge your suspension pump will help you make finite adjustments to sag.
Typically 15% sag is for a firm setup and 20% sag is considered plush.
Air Spring Fine Tuning Control(s): Volume Spacers and Compression
Air springs ramp rate, sometimes called Spring Rate, is based on how air compresses in the containment cylinder. As the air is compressed the PSI increases according to the decreasing volume of the containment. This is done via non-compressible volume spacers in the air chamber.
Hydraulic damping assists air spring providing support in mid-stroke and bottom out.
Opposing Control: Rebound.
Higher spring rate will drive the suspension back to neutral with more force than a lower spring rate. To keep the bike from skipping across trail rebound damping is utilized.
As suspension compresses (travel reduces) a piston moves closer to the end of a sealed container. By decreasing the volume of the container the PSI pushing back on the piston is increased.
By adding or removing non-compressible volume spacers riders modify the air springs ramp rate which directly changes the amount of support and bottom out feel of the fork or shock.
By removing volume spacers a rider increases the available volume in the suspension. The larger volume compresses less per mm of travel resulting in a lower PSI per mm of travel. This creates less support and is utilizes more travel.
Adding volume spacers decreases the available volume. With less air volume the PSI per mm of travel increases providing more support and greater resistance to bottom out.
Opposing Control: Rebound.
Rebound may need to be adjusted for volume tuning depending on how drastic of a PSI change is being tuned in or out of the suspension.
Helping Control: Compression.
Compression provides additional support and bottom out resistance.
Compression controls provide damping to slow suspension travel as a load is applied and the suspension is compressed. (easy one right?)
When riders have found sag and volume spacing preferences compression controls provide minute adjustments to dial in performance. Adding compression provides more support allowing the suspension to ride taller in its travel which is important when dialing in a bikes personality in corners, etc.
With too little compression a bike will sit deep in the travel. This compromises cornering and braking force resistance. Headtube angle, bottom bracket height, front to rear weight bias, etc are modified as a bike goes through its travel. Maintaining control of the use of travel is paramount for good performance.
Since compression hydraulically slows the suspensions use of travel it therefor lowers the air springs PSI. Properly setting compression controls will help ease the load on the rebound system by controlling the air springs push back onto the rebound circuit.
Too much compression will cause a bike to feel harsh and not use appropriate amounts of travel.
Generally, compression settings are fine tuned after sag and volume spacing have riders, in the ballpark.
Low speed compression controls mid-stroke as well as support in cornering and against brake dive.
High speed compression helps with bottom out and high shaft speed inputs.
3 positions switches are a type of compression circuit with Open the most plush, Mid providing some additional support and Firm for climbing. If you climb in firm remember to put it back to plush for the downhill or you are in for a potentially rough ride.
Rebound damping controls a suspensions shaft speed returning to a neutral position. Or, how fast the air spring pushes back as the load changes.
More rebound damping slows the suspension by decreasing the amount of fluid allowed to pass through the hydraulic design.
Less rebound damping allows the suspension to return faster with less hydraulic restriction on the damper.
Rebound setting is based on weight, ground speed, terrain and aggression. Setting the rebound properly means finding the right frequency or feel for your riding.
If your rebound is too fast, or does not have enough clicks of rebound, the bike will tend to skip and suffer poor small bump compliance.
When the rebound is too slow, or you have too many clicks of rebound, the suspension may pack up creating a harsh ride as each bump uses progressively more travel forcing the suspension deeper into the travel, which will have higher spring rates.
Opposing: Air Spring PSI / Spring Rate.
Helping Control: Low & High Speed Rebound.
Some suspension is designed with 2 rebound circuits. The High Speed Rebound circuit is designed to provide additional control resisting increased PSI late in suspension travel.
Typically High Speed Rebound settings are used as the Low Speed Rebound controls edge towards closed. Example: you might not use any clicks of High Speed Rebound until you reach X clicks on the low speed.

Yeti ARC: Comparative Bikes
Are you shopping a Yeti ARC hardtail for a quiver bike or your do it all option?
As a quiver bike the ARC is a playful hardtail comparable with the Ibis DV9. Both are bikes with bigger terrain Trail / Enduro blood lines and both the ARC and DV9 are fun bikes. They are quick and efficient without being sketchy at speed, leaning into a slightly relaxed geometry and spec.
Mondraker offers a bit more xc race oriented hardtail if that is where you really want to be.
For riders shopping a hardtail as a first or only bike – depending on your terrain you will want to look at a dual suspension bike as well.
Chat with our team and learn some of the nuisances that lead riders to a bike like the Yeti Arc as an ideal setup.
