Yeti Cycles SB5+ Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2017 description:
If you created a venn diagram outlining the domains of XC, trail, and enduro, you'd find the 2017 Yeti Cycles SB5+ Turq Mountain Bike Frame chilling in that tiny space where all three combine. Its geometry stays true to the SB5 standard, but it features a tweak here and there to embrace plus-sized tires for smooth, stable traction across loose, chunky terrain. The most notable difference is the SB5+'s elevated chainstays, which curve upward from the shock and create a sharply pointed triangle that, combined with the wide Boost hub spacing, opens up tire clearance while keeping the chainstays at a svelte 17. 2in. This makes for plush tires and snappy, responsive handling when whipping through switchbacks and rocketing over dusty trails. This frameset also carries the new Turq designation, which represents the most advanced frames Yeti can create at any given time. For the SB5+ Turq, that means a more precise carbon layup that reinforces key stress points without adding bulk. This process results in strength where you need it, and low weight where you don't, shedding almost 300 claimed grams compared to the regular version without compromising stiffness and structural integrity.

Out back, the short, snappy rear triangle tracks lines like a hound dog on a fox trail. Furthering this bike's handling prowess, Boost rear spacing allows for stubby, quick-thinking chainstays that take successive bumps in stride while finessing a tough line. Yeti's Switch Infinity suspension is the lynchpin of the SB5+'s versatile capability. Its linear travel hits the sweet spot of anti-squat to keep pedaling sharp across rocky climbs, and it also erases the momentary harshness that its predecessor, the Switch Link design, would display when pushed to the absolute limit. Riding with the shock open won't condemn you to bot...
