Yeti Mountain Bikes


Yeti Cycles was founded in 1985 by John Parker, in California during the time when mountain biking was first getting started. Parker was a welder who built movie sets in Hollywood and later became a mountain bike designer and racer.

He later became one of the sport’s guardians, inducted into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame in 1995, and a trustee of NORBA Board of Directors for five years. The first mountain bike World Championships took place in Durango, Colorado in 1990 and the next year Parker moved the Yeti Cycles factory from California to Durango to be closer to the action.

The company made a range of mountain bikes, but were best known at the time for their iconic turquoise colored FRO (For Racing Only) models. 
Early sponsored riders included John Tomac, and Juli Furtado. In 1995, Schwinn bought Yeti Cycles company and later sold it to ski company Volant in 1999.
