We say Yelli, you say Screamy. The first hardtail to bring the party to wagon wheels is back with a vengeance. When it debuted in 2011, the Canfield Yelli Screamy was the first 29-inch mountain bike with sub-17-inch chainstays and aggressive all-mountain geometry. It was the only hardtail 29er that didn’t ride like one, and proved that a lightweight, efficient mile-muncher could still make you smile on the descents.
Long before “downcountry” was a word, the Yelli Screamy was an XC bike with an identity crisis.
The third generation of the venerable Yelli Screamy is longer and slacker with increased reach across all sizes and a 65.5-degree head-angle, yet retains its rally car-like handling thanks to 16.7-inch chainstays and signature Canfield geo. Crafted from 6061 series aluminum for a compliant ride, the Yelli features stealth dropper routing, ISCG tabs, boost spacing and three water-bottle mounts.
Slice and dice singletrack. Rail pump tracks and jump lines. Load it with frame bags and get lost. Keep up with your spandex-clad friends on the climbs and embarrass them on the descents.
Do whatever you want on the Yelli Screamy, just don’t tell it that it’s a short-travel 29er hardtail.
