Again how is this any different then Santa Cruz with their S build spec Bullit? I haven't heard much crying about the price of the Bullit?Can't beat paying top dollar for a mediocre wheelset, budget cranks and SLX drivetrain.
Pole are definitely a smaller brand than Yeti, their Voima will have the new Bosch and will be cheaper.Reason smaller brands (amongst others) go for Shimano is that Bosch minimum order quantities are much much higher. And smaller brands cannot meet these order MOQ’s but can order smaller volumes via Shimano.

I thought the exact same thing when I read that Pole was switching from Brose to Bosch.Pole are definitely a smaller brand than Yeti, their Voima will have the new Bosch and will be cheaper.
For some of us, money is not a consideration. I personally enjoy having top notch bikes from various manufacturers mtb/emtb/road/ehybrid). New 160e is due February/March 2023 and purchased with certain riding characteristics in mind depending on what type of ride I'm doing on sny given day. So far would have to say my YT Decoy Elite is most reliable and fun to ride. Spesh Levo S-Works has had many issues with controller, battery and now motor. Love the way it climbs its just unreliable. Thinking this will be the 1st of a few different emtbs Yeti will offer.I must tip my hat to Yeti - not because they've made an amazing bike but rather making a pretty ok bike that people will still pay ridiculous money for "because it's a yeti"
