Yeti Cycles ASR Beti Carbon Mountain Bike Frame - 2017 Yeti Cycles ASR Beti Carbon Mountain Bike Frame - 2017
Not content with the typical pink-and-shrink approach used with many women-specific bikes, the Yeti ASR Beti Carbon Mountain Bike Frame boasts the same lightning-fast acceleration and trail-taming composure of the regular ASR Carbon, just with a special shock tune for needs of lighter racers and riders. While we can argue about the merits of differentiating bikes by gender-specific colorways, the lighter shock tune does provide a noticeable difference for female riders desiring a bit more sensitivity and traction when they're crushing up climbs and ripping descents. The ASR Beti Carbon Frame is a bit longer and slacker than many cross-country whippets, making it a bit more of a versatile performer on the trail. It's really a lightweight, race-ready rig that's ideal as a spirited and agile trail companion when you're not donning a race plate. This particular frame provides all the strength and stiffness of Yeti's top-tier Turq carbon fiber, albeit with a weight penalty in the neighborhood of 250 grams (that's about 8. 8 ounces). Ultimately, this carbon construction translates to rocket-like acceleration and precise handling desired by cross-country racers and trail riders alike. Seeing that the ASR Carbon occupies much of the same territory as Yeti's newer SB4. 5, it's important to detail the differences. You'll find it's actually packing a bit less travel, sports a steeper head tube, and rocks a single-pivot suspension instead of Yeti's signature Switch Infinity. The extra-small and small frames also use 27. 5in wheels for easier handling around tight switchbacks for the smallest of racers and riders. Although more basic than Switch Infinity, this single-pivot platform reduces the frame's overall weight and increases rear triangle stiffness--both characteristics desired for an XC bike. Yeti refined the pedaling characteristics and descending composure of the ASR Carbon by working closely with FOX to fine-tune the suspension rate. What you'll find is snappy acce...

Yeti Cycles ASR Beti Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2017 Yeti Cycles ASR Beti Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2017
Don't be fooled by the cutsie naming convention, the 2017 Yeti Cycles ASR Beti Turq Mountain Bike Frame isn't the downgraded pink-and-shrink fare we're used to seeing in products targeting women. It features the same top-tier, hard-riding, trail shredding construction and geometry found in the ASR Turq, just with a lighter tune to better suit smaller riders. While we can go back and forth about the merits of gendering bikes by colorway, there's no arguing that the ASR Beti is a great option for lighter riders of all genders looking for a whip-fast XC ride that still holds a hint of that famed Yeti enduro aggression.This ASR Beti also carries Yeti's new Turq designation, which represents the most advanced frame the company can make at any given time. For the ASR, this means a more precise carbon layup, carefully molded to reinforce key stress points along the frame without adding any unnecessary bulk. This results in a frameset that has strength where you need it, and much appreciated weight reductions where you don't. Weighing just a claimed4. 28lb, this feathery frame shaves even more weight by choosing a single-pivot suspension system over the heftier Switch Infinity, giving it nearly limitless acceleration potential on smooth, serpentine climbs without compromising on its ability to take on root lattices and brake-rutted descents.That's not to say that the ASR Beti gets timid when grueling climbs flow into jarring descents. It shines across abusive terrain and white-knuckle descents that would have other cross-country bikes quaking in their tires. The ASR Beti is built to pair with 27. 5 or 29in wheels, depending on size, so the big (or bigger) hoops steamroll anything lying in their path, allowing you to ride over trail impediments with effortless composure. And because it's distinctly Yeti at heart, this frame proudly retains a gravity-friendly persona with a head tube angle of either 68 or 69 degrees, again depending on size. This more relaxed geometry wo...

Yeti Cycles ASR Carbon Mountain Bike Frame - 2017 Yeti Cycles ASR Carbon Mountain Bike Frame - 2017
Sitting a bit longer and slacker than most cross-country whippets, the Yeti ASR Carbon Mountain Bike Frame doubles as a lightweight, lively trail bike when you're not donning a race plate. It's a versatile performer that's confident sprinting for the finish and conquering brutal climbs on cross-country courses, yet it inspires more rider confidence for hitting burlier trail features and enjoying long, sustained descents along the local mountain pass. This particular ASR Carbon Frame provides all the strength and stiffness of Yeti's high-end Turq series carbon frames, albeit with a weight penalty in the neighborhood of 250 grams (that's about 8. 8 ounces). Ultimately, this carbon construction translates to the rocket-like acceleration and precise handling desired by cross-country racers and aggressive trail riders alike. Though the ASR Carbon occupies much of the same territory as Yeti's newer SB4. 5, you'll find it's actually packing a bit less travel, sports a steeper head tube, and rocks a single-pivot suspension instead of the signature Switch Infinity you've come to expect from Yeti. Another difference, the extra-small and small frames use 27. 5 inch wheels for a bit nimbler feel with increased stand-over for shorter riders. Although more basic than Switch Infinity, this single-pivot platform reduces the frame's overall weight and increases the rear triangle stiffness--both characteristics desired for an XC bike. Yeti refined the pedaling characteristics and descending composure of the ASR Carbon by working closely with FOX to fine-tune the suspension rate. What you'll find is snappy acceleration from corners and efficiency on the brutal climbs of XC, yet it's far more confident handling the rough stuff on the trail, with the shock ramping up at end stroke to prevent harsh bottom-outs.

Yeti Cycles ASR Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2017 Yeti Cycles ASR Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2017
The 2017 Yeti Cycles ASR Turq Mountain Bike Frame may look like an XC rocket, but it wouldn't be a Yeti if it didn't have a little bit of rowdy aggression mixed in. Keeping with its heritage, the ASR sits just a little longer and slacker than most other 4in bikes, which lets it blend the light weight you need to get up hills fast with the stability you want on the other side of the crest. The big news for this year is Yeti's new Turq designation, which represents the company's most advanced construction. Turq means a more precise carbon layup that's carefully molded to reinforce key stress points without adding bulk for strength where it's needed and lightness where is isn't. The biggest differences between the ASR and its SB4. 5 counterpart are a few millimeters less travel, a steeper head tube, and a single pivot suspension rather than the heftier Switch Infinity. This suits it for the XC racer who wants to get to the top first and demonstrate bike handling skills by dissecting terrain that enduro sled bruisers would just wallop through. If Yeti's Super Bike line comprises enduro sledge hammers, then the ASR is the surgeon's scalpel. That's not to say that the ASR gets timid when grueling climbs let onto jarring descents littered with baby heads, loose shale, and twisty roots. This is where other cross-country bikes would be begging for mercy, yet the ASR shines across abusive terrain and white-knuckle descents. The ASR is built to pair with 27. 5 or 29in wheels, depending on size, so the big (or bigger) hoops steamroll anything lying in their path, allowing you to ride over trail impediments with effortless composure. And because it's distinctly Yeti at heart, the ASR proudly retains a gravity-friendly persona with a head tube angle of either 68 or 69 degrees, again depending on size. This more relaxed geometry won't chuck you over the bars like other cross-country bikes when the going gets steep, allowing you to confidently descend on only four inches of su...

Yeti Cycles Beti SB5 Carbon XT/SLX Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 Yeti Cycles Beti SB5 Carbon XT/SLX Complete Mountain Bike - 2018
Whether you have bike envy for your girlfriend's new ride or its time to take your steed out to pasture, Yeti's SB5 Beti Carbon XT/SLX Complete Mountain Bike is one to consider if you are in the market for a new trail bike. The bike checks off all our boxes of features we seek on a modern mountain bike but for us, riding is believing. Mountain bikes are really good right now. Companies like Yeti continue to evolve bike technology and the results allow us to ride faster, safer, and with greater enjoyment. Yeti already had an incredible template in the SB5, a favorite of many a test rider and industry veterans, in which to craft the SB5 Beti. The Switch Infinity suspension works wonders when you need the travel but lets you motor along efficiently when you don't. It's amazing how well the SB5 excels in a variety of conditions. From rocky, high-speed chunder in the west to slimy, rooty, and rock strewn sinuous singletrack in the east to loamy jump lines in the pacific northwest, the Beti SB5 handles it all and does so with speed and grace.The only difference you'll notice between the Beti and its male counterpart are different colorway and lack of an XL size. This is welcome as there are plenty of ladies that are going to rip on this bike just as hard as the boys. We applaud Yeti for building a bike for females that has the right specs where it is needed but doesn't scream that it's a women's bike. Lighter than most trail frames, the just over six pound, carbon fiber SB5 Beti climbs with an eagerness of knowing that the real fun begins on the way down. Ensuring that the bike tracks true and responds well to steering inputs is a tapered head tube, and 148mm boost rear thru-axle. Yeti wisely specced a slightly narrower handlebar and added a women's specific saddle and grips that add comfort however they do not detract one iota from the bikes intended purpose and character. FOX did create a custom tune on the Performance DPS rear shock to accommodate for lighter rider...

Yeti Cycles Beti SB5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 Yeti Cycles Beti SB5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018
These days, being a woman in the mountain bike world is certainly starting to seem less challenging, and more welcoming. More capable, aggressive, and burly bikes are being made for us, catering to our wants and needs, and the world of shrink-it and pink-it is beginning to dissipate. With our needs in mind, Yeti's designers offer us the Yeti Beti SB5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame. With all the burly bells and whistles that are offered to the boys, the Beti SB5 is ready to shred any trail, and a couple of ladies-specific tweaks make it even more playful and fun. Saddle up and you just may find yourself sending it down the mountain as an unstoppable force to be reckoned with. Head to toe, or rather, head tube to chainstay, you'll find the Beti has the same geometry as her brother. With a slacked out, confidence inspiring 66. 5-degree head tube, she wants to send it down any trail you point her, and her generous 46-inch wheelbase (medium), she holds strong so you can barrel through bouldery rock gardens where hesitation can be the killer. In effort to prevent sluggish and cumbersome climbing, the bike's seat tube angle saw a forward shift, keeping your body forward on the bike for maximum attack positioning, and efficiency when you have to put down the power. Short and snappy chainstays make up the rear, which saw a makeover in 2017. The longer chainstays and narrow non-boost spacing was stretched out to 148mm boost spacing, an increase of space afforded the room needed for tucking the wheel closer to the seat tube, and shortening the chainstays to a stubby 17. 2in. Shorter chainstays translate to a playful and responsive rear end, happy to pop off of rollers, and help you maneuver through tight and root-laden switchbacks. Just ahead of the rear triangle, tucked in the bottom of the frame, you'll find the --ahem, pivotal Switch Infinity suspension system. Different from the previously used Switch Link, Switch Infinity offers more linear travel arc, smoothly transition...

Yeti Cycles Beti SB5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 Yeti Cycles Beti SB5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018
Yeti bikes often exceed expectations. Born on the trails of Colorado, the brand continuously hones their craft and we are grateful, as we get to ride the fruits of their labor and it's hard to argue that it doesn't produce some of the finest riding bikes on the market. The Beti SB5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bikeis designed specifically for female riders and the 27. 5 inch wheels are perfect for the geometry offered and optimized for all mountain use. Handling is very intuitive and the longer and lower feel, gives it a great "in" rather than "on" the bike feel. The Switch Infinity suspension platform never ceases to amaze us how supple and bottomless it feels in the rough, yet extremely efficient while climbing and hammering along rough terrain. It's no surprise that bikes have gotten slacker lately to inspire a little extra confidence when it is steep and rough and Yeti's are no exception. We do feel like the 66. 5-degree headtube angle hits the sweet-spot of point and shoot on the downhills without the bike wandering on climbs and requiring extra attention getting up to the goods. Short chainstays and a low bottom bracket make the bike very capable and if you are ready to add some Strava trophies to your repertoire, meet the bike that will help you get there. This bike uses Turq Series carbon which is the highest quality material Yeti builds with and is the ideal blend of lightweight, stiffness, and durability. Yeti's Enduro World Series riders race production frames and subject these things to some heavy-duty thrashing throughout the year and across the globe, so rest assured that the frame can handle it. The feedback from the racers as well as Yeti's own in-house riding and testing allows it to build a frame that is just over 5 pounds and is fully backed with a 5-year warranty. Switch Infinity is responsible for the excellent riding manners the Beti SB5 possesses. Co-developed with FOX Racing Shox, the design allows the main pivot to move downward o...

Yeti Cycles SB4.5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB4.5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018
It seems that industry publications and tradeshow buzz has been all about huge enduro sleds with plus-sized tires and slacked-out geometries of late, but the SB4. 5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike proves that even flow-centric brands like Yeti Cycles are still into the trail scene. It's a moderately slack 29er with 4. 5in of travel that's designed for stability and speed on descents with plenty of snap on climbs for cyclists who still earn their laps the old-fashioned way. Though it was created to fill the trail niche in Yeti's line, the SB4. 5 has a noticeable focus on losing weight, which combines with the wagon wheels to keep it versatile enough for straight-up XC riding. The carbon fiber frame is stiff and light, with a relaxed 67. 5-degree head tube angle and stability-enhancing 17. 2in chainstays that don't get in the way on climbs. The FOX Performance 34 fork also provides confidence on descents with 140mm of plush, forgiving travel that gives you the option to pick a line when you feel like it and just point the bike downhill when you don't. Yeti uses its relatively new Switch Infinity suspension in the SB4. 5, which keeps the pedal stroke consistent and reduces squat by using a pivot system that switches direction as you move through the bike's travel. Yeti's inclusion of Boost axles also contributes to the SB4. 5's stiff, efficient pedaling platform, and the departure from the 142mm rear standard allows for more space between the hubs for better tire clearance and shorter chainstays--dimensions that are especially relevant for 29ers. With a greater hub distance, you also get a better spoke bracing angle, which creates a stiffer wheel and chassis platform. Finally, the hub's bearings themselves will experience less damaging torsional forces with the wider footprint, prolonging their lifespan and leading to a more efficient rear triangle as a whole. This stiffness and Switch Infinity's pedal-ability are what make the SB4. 5 more adept at climbing ...

The enduro scene has been getting a lot of love lately, with ever deeper travel and ever slacker geometries defining industry trends. Yeti's decision to discontinue its SB95 without a replacement seemed to confirm this trend; however, the SB4. 5 Carbon XT/SLX Complete Mountain Bike proves that there's still a space in the tribe for trail riding. It's a moderately slack 29er with 4. 5in of travel that's designed for stability and speed on descents with plenty of snappy climbing for those who prefer to be the engine on climbs. Though it was created to fill the trail niche in Yeti's line, the SB4. 5 has a noticeable focus on losing weight, which combines with the wagon wheels to keep it versatile enough for straight-up XC riding.

Yeti Cycles SB4.5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB4.5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018
When you're a well-rounded rider, you tend to find pleasure in tackling all sorts of trails, from flowy all-mountain riding with pockets of rock gardens and gnarly roots to steep and trying XC climbs that test just how hard you can push your lungs and quads. With riding so varied, having a bike with restrictive geometry and suspension that can't support the trails you point it up or down can make you angrier than a man with a fork in a world of soup. Yeti Cycles offers us a spoon in this soupy world with the 2018 SB4. 5 Turq mountain bike frame. Effectively finding the balance between a capable trail bike that can handle some chunky rock gardens, and a smooth-trail-loving, pedal-mashing XC bike, the SB4. 5 features lighter weight, and more nimble handling to earn its spot as a true all-mountain bike. With geometry that rides the line between trail and XC, the SB4. 5 runs a 64. 7-degree head tube, which is significantly slacked out beyond the 70-degrees we find on most cross-country bikes. This makes for incredible stability when descending, but because the seat tube angle remains steep you'll still be centered in your cockpit for laying down the power on climbs. In the back, progressive Boost spacing stretches the hub spacing to a wider 148mm that not only enables your hub to be laced up into a stiffer and snappier wheel, but also allows space for the rear wheel to be tucked in closer to your frame for a shorter chain stay for faster power transfers when you need to mash down on the pedals. The guts of the bike, the Switch Infinity suspension, lie just above the bottom bracket, which helps maintain a low center of gravity. Tucked inside the bottom of the seat tube and the rear triangle you'll find two silky-smooth Kashima-coated stanchions with a slider that moves in conjunction with the 144mm of Kashima-coated Fox Factory DPS shock to soak up blows while balancing out pedal bob with linear travel and anti-squat technology. While it'll be happy to soak up some ...

Yeti Cycles SB4.5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB4.5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018
If you're looking for a whip-fast bike that can handle some bigger terrain on occasion, look no further than Yeti Cycles' SB4. 5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike. It blends XC speed with geometry to handle the bigger stuff, so it's effectively the missing link between enduro and trail--something we'd feel comfortable with literally calling all-mountain. This SB4. 5 also carries Yeti's new Turq designation, which means the frame is even lighter and stiffer than the brand's standard carbon construction. It features a more precise carbon layup that's carefully molded to reinforce key stress points without adding bulk, resulting in strength where you need it and fewer grams where you don't. In the end, Yeti claims a reduction of 300g compared to the regular SB4. 5 Carbon--a stat that lends the SB4. 5 Turq more climbing pedigree and complements the ultimate bailout gear on the X01 Eagle drivetrain. Yeti also says that the SB4. 5 has a stiffer pedaling platform than most of its other bikes. While we don't have numbers to verify this claim, it's definitely a responsive go-getter when the going gets mashy, and we think the inclusion of a Boost 148mm rear axle is at least partially responsible for the bike's eagerness on climbs. Coupled with the innate aggression of 29in wheels and the stiff, collet-style hardware, the boosted rear triangle certainly feels every bit as stiff as--if not stiffer than--any of Yeti's other models. The frame's aggressive speed is not to be outdone by its slack front end and surprisingly capable Switch Infinity suspension, though. Its 67. 4-degree head tube is one of the slackest we've seen on an XC-leaning 29er, and it makes for a boost of confidence while picking lines across terrain that would make a more typical 70-degree head tube stumble. The Switch Infinity suspension is equally confidence-inspiring, and its linear travel hits the sweet spot of anti-squat to keep pedaling sharp across rocky climbs. It also erases the momentary harshn..

Yeti Cycles SB5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018
Getting up to the goods that include flowy and gnarly descents can sometimes require a little work, but the effort is always worth it and we wouldn't have it any other way. So if you don't have shuttle buddies and don't want to pay for lift access, you'll most likely want a bike that can climb as well as it can descend. We've found Yeti's SB5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike to be plenty capable of hanging with the big bikes coming down the mountain yet climbs with the alacrity to make an e-bike pilot jealous. The SB5 is quite possibly Yeti's best rounded and most versatile bike. It's quite lightweight and has an excellent suspension design lending itself well for days when the topo lines get stacked or even toeing the line at the occasional XC race. We have ridden enough bikes to know that we don't want an anorexic, steep-angled, nervous bike while chasing our buddies down unfamiliar or technical singletrack. Thankfully the SB5 strikes a perfect balance of nimbleness and surefooted attacking. The head tube angle is a fairly slack 66. 5-degrees for confidence inspiring handling on the steep stuff without requiring excessive body English keeping the front wheel from leaving terra firma on uphill switchbacks. Further contributing to excellent ascending, the seat tube angle is 73. 6-degrees. This keeps your weight forward on the cockpit and knees over the pedal spindle for improved climbing. When work turns to play, drop the WTB saddle out of the way with FOX's excellent Transfer post and you won't have anything between you and that rowdy descent. 148mm Boost hub spacing widens the hub flanges for a stiffer wheel build and rear end, and it frees up precious real estate between the chainstays close to the seat tube. The bonus here is the ability to shorten the chainstays to a stubby 17. 2in tucking the rear wheel in closer to the frame and allowing you to run bigger rubber. On the trail, you get near telepathic handling and a laterally stiff rear end. This t...

Yeti Cycles SB5 Carbon XT/SLX Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB5 Carbon XT/SLX Complete Mountain Bike - 2018
In our opinion, a proper mountain bike ride does include a bit of climbing and you have to earn you turns. Being able to do big backcountry rides is so rewarding and we prefer to get to faraway and seldom seen places. You'll need the right kind of bike if you fancy riding in these conditions. Ideally it'll pedal well when motoring along the flats and up long climbs yet not hold you back at all while charging back down. We get to ride a lot of bikes here but the one that we have found to do this job above and beyond is the Yeti's SB5 Carbon XT/SLX Complete Mountain Bike. The lightweight build and suspension design simply works with you in every situation and the price point puts it in a rage that won't leave you bike poor. We love the SB5 for its versatility. We can confidently pull the bike off the rack at any trailhead and know that the bike will handle the ride. The term "quiver-killer" gets thrown around from time to time and we feel the SB5 truly lives up to it. It strikes a perfect balance of agility and pin the throttle speed. Scare yourself fast speed comes courteous of the 66. 5-degrees headtube angle for the steep stuff going down but you don't have to hold your tongue just right to prevent a wondering front wheel on steep climbs. The 73. 6-degrees seat tube angle puts you in a powerful pedaling position for improved climbing and cruising in a big gear. When it's time to drop in, the FOX Transfer post gets the WTB saddle out of the way for improved clearance and control. Boost spacing is pretty ubiquitous these days but essentially what it does is widen the hub flanges building a stiffer wheel and rear end. It also creates more room for bigger rubber to fit between the chainstays. Shorter chainstays, to the tune of 17. 2-inches, while still having room for a 2. 4-inch tire tucked in close to the seat tube, is a recipe for fun. While riding, you get a bike that goes exactly where you want and with no rear end wag. Up and down the mountain, boost spacing...

Yeti Cycles SB5 Turq LR X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB5 Turq LR X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018
We love when bike brands spec a build that is the choice of what most of the riders of the company ride. In the case of the SB5 Turq LR X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike--whose LR appellation stands for Lunch Ride--that means bigger tires, a wee bit longer fork, and wider bars. The SB5 is known as one of Yeti's most versatile and popular bikes among the Tribe and it took that excellent frame and custom curated a build that satisfied their fastest in-house rippers. Lunch rides around Yeti are pretty renowned for being hammerfests and this SB5 is how many Yeti employees build up their own machines to get the job done. Every day at 11:30, Yeti shuts down the factory for lunch, letting their employees go for a ride on their favorite local trail, Apex. We think this is a rad policy as it lets the employees have a bit of a mid-day unwind and it's a great way to test new products. The folks at Yeti love tinkering with their bikes and through the process of riding, they find a hybrid spec that they all end up loving. We certainly like the changes and this bike is built to take a beating. The fork gets bumped from the usual FOX 34 to a burlier Factory Kashima-coated 36 and gains 10mm more travel while the rear shock gets a swapped for the DPX2 with a piggyback normally seen on the SB6. Tires get beefed up from the normal spec Maxxis Ardents to a Maxxis Minion 2. 5in up front and a 2. 3-inch Aggressor in the rear. SRAM Guide RSC brakes see 180mm rotors on both ends to handle the long descents Golden, CO is known for. The X01 spec is super dependable offering plenty of range for rides going into the 5 digit numbers. So what they have created is a bike that still climbs and pedals with the urgency of the original SB5, but with the downhill chops that would have you questioning if you really need an SB6. Yeti says that their EWS teams will chose a build like the SB5 LR on courses like Rotorua and Tasmania, proving the bike's range of capabilities. As the frame itself is ident...

Yeti Cycles SB5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018
We don't dream of climbing long and tedious fire roads, and while we can't speak for everyone, we're pretty sure you don't either. Instead, we dream of the flowy or tech-filled descents, bouldery rock gardens, and tight root-laden treelines. That being said, unless you're shuttling every lap, or hitting up a resort for lift-access, you won't be so blessed to receive that downhill reward without earning it first. For this, you need a bike that is lightweight and nimble on the climbs, but dominates descents. Meet the Yeti Cycles 2018 SB5 Turq mountain bike frame, a bike that's just as happy sending chunky lines as it is laying down some cross-country laps at your local trail network, with lightweight carbon fiber, and a pedaling platform that's hard to beat. Like its predecessor from 2016, the SB5 is versatile, lightweight, and truly excels in all kinds of terrain, but it did see some tweaks last year to update the geometry, making it even more capable than before. Starting at the front, the head tube angle was slacked out about a half a degree, to a long and low 66. 5-degrees, allowing for confidence inspiring geometry on descents. With the shift of the head tube, the seat tube was pushed forward, upping the angle to 73. 6-degrees (medium), keeping you forward in the cockpit for improved control on descents, as well as laying the power down on climbs. The rear end saw a big makeover, with the previously used 142mm non-boost hub spacing being stretched to a generous 148mm boost hub spacing. By widening the hub, not only does boost spacing allow for a stiffer wheel to be built, but it also clears up space closer to your seat tube, enabling the shortening of chainstays to a stubby 17. 2-inches, to tuck your wheel in closer to the frame. Translating this to your ride, it means a snappier and more nimble rear end that's powerful under pedaling force. In front of the rear triangle you'll find Yeti's Switch Infinity suspension system. Different from the previously used...

Yeti Cycles' 2018 SB5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike gives you everything you want and need in a modern trail-slaying machine. This SB5 gets a no-nonsense build with a wheelset featuring lightweight DT Swiss XM421 rims that are just as wide as a downhill rim from a couple years ago. They spin on DT Swiss 350 hubs renowned for their reliability. SRAM's excellent X01 Eagle drivetrain provides exacting shifts and a 50t bailout gear. The range on offer with this cassette essentially puts extra chainrings and front derailleurs on the endangered species list. Yeti even specs the X01 Eagle crankset, which is the same crank that comes on the top-dog XX1 build. FOX's top-end Factory fork and shock bring super smooth, bump gobbling, terrain taming travel to both ends with the 34 fork and DPS shock. This SB5 carries Yeti's TURQ designation, which represents the most advanced frame the company can construct. This means a more precise carbon layup that's carefully molded to reinforce key stress points along the frame without adding any unnecessary bulk. This results in a frameset that has strength where you need it and much appreciated weight reductions where you don't, for a claimed weight savings of 350g compared to the standard SB5 Carbon. The key to the SB5's great balance lies in its geometry. A 66. 5-degree angle and a slightly longer wheelbase and reach team up for increased stability when mobbing down rocky and rooty trails at high speed. To make sure the bike isn't a sleeper, a steep seat tube angle and shorter chainstays keep handling agile and intuitive as you hop across ruts at speed and navigate up loose, steep terrain. A low bottom bracket inspires cornering confidence to let off the brakes and lean the bike over. The Switch Infinity suspension system is key in providing great quality travel that works with you in every conceivable trail situation. This system's linear path allows it to be much more sensitive to small bumps. Yeti can control the levera...

Yeti Cycles SB5 Turq XT Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB5 Turq XT Complete Mountain Bike - 2018
Big backcountry rides are our idea of a fun day out on a bike. Key to your amount of enjoyment on that ride, is the kind of bike you're on. No need to lug a heavy inefficient bike up long climbs but we also want a bike that lets up rip on the way back down. Of all the bikes we have in our lineup, the Yeti's SB5 TURQ Carbon XT Complete Mountain Bike one of our favorite tools for the job. The lightweight TURQ frame, quality Shimano build, and Switch Infinity suspension design builds a bike ready to tackle any trail and promise zero buyer's remorse. The SB5 is the mountain biker's mountain bike. Known for its versatility, the bike can handle a wide variety of trails and rarely would you ever have a bike capable enough to tackle an enduro and an XC race. Not only does it do both quite well, it even excels better then some machines built specifically for each discipline. The 66. 5-degrees headtube angle lets you pick a line for the steep stuff going down and will confidently guide you through some things you would second guess on other bikes. Climbing up rocky, ledge trails isn't a task, it's a treat. Put the power down and let the excellent suspension claw its way up while your buddies are off their bikes and walking. The 73. 6-degrees seat tube angle encourages a powerful pedaling position for cleaning impossible lines and puts your weight right where it needs to be. When all you have is a horizon line on the trail, drop the FOX Transfer post and trust this Yeti to get you out of the tightest of situations. Boost spacing helps stiffen up the rear end so the suspension is better able to do its job and no power is lost to a flexy rear end. It also allows the chainstays to be placed a little further apart so additional room for bigger tires and mud is available. Stays can be chopped to shorten lengths with the new found space and in combination with the longer reach a wheelbase, you get a bike that can handle high-speed chunder and still thread the needle through a g...

Yeti Cycles SB5 Turq XX1 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2017 Yeti Cycles SB5 Turq XX1 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2017
Yeti Cycles' 2017 SB5 Turq XX1 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike brings trail dreams into reality with top-tier carbon construction and a build kit that'll garner more than a little attention at every trailhead. This SB5 gets the A-list treatment: ENVE's M60 Forty HV carbon hoops roll smooth and fast on DT Swiss' renowned 240 hubs, and SRAM's superlative XX1 Eagle drivetrain offers up precise shifts and the ultimate 50t bailout gear. That mega cog is part of the storied XX1 cassette, a rare find on stock builds that boasts a Ti Nitride finish to reduce shift friction and increase longevity over non-coated cassettes. The only non-XX1 piece is the crankset, which Yeti smartly trades out for the more trail-ready X01 Eagle carbon. It's still exceptionally light and stiff, but it has a hint of added reinforcement to better match the SB5's all-mountain capabilities. This SB5 also carries Yeti's new Turq designation, which represents the most advanced frame the company can make. For the SB5, this means a more precise carbon layup, carefully molded to reinforce key stress points along the frame without adding any unnecessary bulk. This results in a frameset that has strength where you need it and much appreciated weight reductions where you don't for a claimed weight saving of 350g compared to the standard SB5 Carbon. 2017 sees some tweaks to the SB5's geometry, which manifest as a slightly slacker head tube, dropping from last year's 66. 8 degrees down to a 66. 5-degree angle. This pairs with a slightly longer wheelbase and reach that combine for increased stability when blasting through steep rock gardens. Conversely, the longer, slacker front end is tempered by a steeper seat tube angle and stiff, stubby rear triangle that keep handling responsive and snappy as you deftly navigate tricky root systems and washed out trails. The Switch Infinity suspension system is the key to the SB5's versatility. Switch Infinity has a more linear travel arc than the Switch Link design i...

Yeti Cycles SB5+ Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB5+ Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018
Where the trail, cross-country, and enduro single-tracks all merge, you'll find the illusive Yeti SB5+ Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike 2018 patiently waiting for you to climb aboard and send it in every direction imaginable. With the versatility of the SB5 you'll find that the SB5+ is hungry to gobble up trails, but with geometry tweaks that enable it to ride as a true plus-bike, with ample tire clearance for supple support of up to a 3-inch tire to dominate loose banked corners and precarious rock gardens. While overall frame geometry stayed quite consistent between the SB5 and the Plus, it's notable that the rear triangle saw a major redesign with elevated chainstays that allows for increased rigidity and tire clearance. Still maintaining short and snappy a rear end, the elevation of the chainstays simply takes them up and out of the way with an arc that increases clearance space while keeping the stays at 17. 2-inches for quick power transfer and nimble handling. Staying close to the rear end, you'll find the switch infinity rear suspension design that effortlessly transitions through travel for a buttery-smooth ride. With a translating pivot it switches directions to move through your travel as you ride, maximizing anti-squat characteristics so you don't lose power in your pedal stroke. The linear path of the system moves with little resistance, allowing small bump sensitivity and pedaling efficiency in the beginning of the travel, but soaks deeper when further into the travel to take square edge hits and drops with ease. When paired with Fox's Performance DPS rear shock with 127mm of travel you'll find a capable trail bike with 5-inches of play-ready suspension hungry for techy tree lines and rock gardens. And for those gnarly and steep tree lines, Yeti's engineers set you up with a slacked out 67. 1-degree head tube angle that feels planted and bombproof, with confidence inspiring geometry that's eager to devour the descents. Because a versatile ...

Yeti Cycles SB5+ Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB5+ Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018
If you're like us, you probably have fun riding just about any trail in front of you. This can be a blessing and a curse --banging out miles of smiles no matter the trail is great, but come shopping time it can be a total nightmare of weighing whether you want an enduro beast, and all-mountain conqueror, or a quick and nimble cross-country machine. A lot of bikes are great at one category, but rarely does a bike truly excel no matter the trail like the Yeti Cycles 2018 SB5+ Turq Mountain Bike Frame. With the versatility we've come to know and love from the traditional SB5, but geometry tweaks that enable plus-tires, this rock-gobbling steed is ready for any and every ride you embark on. We didn't see massive transitions in geometry from the SB5 to its plus-sized big brother, the front triangle remained largely the same, but in the back there was a transformation to allow more tire clearance without stretching out chainstays. Still maintaining short and snappy responsiveness, the 17. 2-inch stays are elevated and arced up out of the way, so they can maximize space for 3-inch tires caked in mud to clear with ease, without sacrificing the nimble playfulness of a stubby chainstay. Just in front of the chainstays you'll see the pivotal suspension design that is Switch Infinity. Effortlessly transitioning through travel for silky smooth suspension, Switch Infinity uses a linear path that moves with little resistance, allowing for small bump compliance with minimal squat, so your ride stays smooth while climbing, with little impact on your pedaling efficiency. When you're heading downhill, you'll soak deeper into the suspension, tackling bigger drops and square edge bumps with ease. Combining the Kashima-coated stanchions of Switch Infinity with Fox's Factory DPS, Kashima coated shock is only appropriate, offering you 127mm of ultra-capable travel that's hungry to eat up rock gardens, drops, and rooty tree lines.

Yeti Cycles SB5.5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB5.5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018
The mountain bike market has certainly seen a growth of longer travel enduro machines as of late. The advantages of big wheels cannot be denied and components, wheels, and geometry have reached a point allowing more aggressive riders to exploit them. While the SB6 is typically the weapon of choice for enduro pilots Richie Rude and Cody Kelly, on some high speed courses or days when the transitions are far between, they will reach for the 5. 5. After spending some saddle time on this bike, it removes a lot of people's preconceived notions about 29ers, and we think bikes like this are at least part of the reason why the industry has finally embraced wagon wheels outside of cross country machines. If the idea of big wheels carrying speed everywhere on the trail and plush suspension soaking up the roughest lines appeals to you, Yeti's SB5. 5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike is the one to make all of your enduro dreams come true. With carefully selected components, you'll have enough left in the bank to put number plates on your handlebars all season. This version from Yeti utilizes the same suspension design and geometry of the higher end SB5. 5 TURQ series. And while the SB5. 5 Carbon offers the same stiffness and durability as the TURQ, a use of different materials incurs a 400g (0. 8lb) weight increase. The SB5. 5 Carbon's handling is so dialed and Switch Infinity climbs and pedals so well that the difference in weight, while riding at least, is negligible. Of course we'd all love to own the TURQ frame in a money-is-no-object world but, the value of the Carbon 5. 5 with GX Eagle is hard to refute. Yeti claims that the key to the bike's impressive handling is balanced geometry. Colorado, from where the brand hails, does offer diverse riding opportunities and we're sure that the feedback from the EWS squad from tracks around the world help distill the numbers we see on the 5. 5. It's also evident that Yeti isn't one to quickly jump on the "latest geometry" b...

Yeti Cycles SB5.5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB5.5 Turq Mountain Bike Frame - 2018
Yeti Cycle's finger on the pulse of mountain biking is pressing down harder than ever and they have been in the game just about as long as anybody else. Trends come and go and designs advance to ultimately allow riders to push their limits and go faster on more difficult terrain. The 2018 SB5. 5 Turq is the culmination of everything Yeti has learned in over 3 decades of building frames. The suspension design on the SB5. 5 gives it the ability to happily pedal and climb with XC bikes but the geometry pushes its capabilities in gnarly terrain that Yeti's Enduro team will occasionally call into action for EWS races. This 5. 5 frame carries the Turq appointment, which is plenty burly enough to handle tail-gate shuttles and rugged trails, yet light and agile enough that you'll forget how durable the frame is. The SB5. 5 Turq construction contains the highest quality carbon fiber that Yeti uses allowing it to precisely layup the carbon where extra strength is needed, reinforce highly stressed areas, and reduce the weight by 240g versus the standard carbon version.Key to Yeti's get-up-and-go response is a firm pedaling platform and we can't get over just how great this 140mm 29er climbs. We don't perceive any turbo lag or inefficiency on this one. Maybe it is the Boost spacing or the Switch Infinity platform or something Yeti adds that is as mythical as an abominable snowman, whatever it is, we like it. The big wheels roll along picking up speed and momentum and always encourages us to push the pace to the next ridge knowing the shit-eating grin we will have on the way back down. Egging on the go-anywhere, crush-everything attitude is the bikes 66. 5-degree head tube. Picking a line through a creek bed that mostly resembles a minefield becomes an afterthought. Switch Infinity is Yeti's propriety suspension design and it really shines on the SB5. 5 since it has a knackering for conquering long ascents and steep descents. Keys to its success are its ability to stay com...

Yeti Cycles SB5.5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 Yeti Cycles SB5.5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018
Yeti had some pretty big shoes to fill after they discontinued the highly successful SB95. The 5 inches of travel and Switch Technology built a bike that pedaled well, felt better the faster you rode, and could be built up as an all-day trail bike or an enduro stage hunter. The first 29er back in Yeti's lineup, post SB95, was the 4. 5. It showcased refinements to the suspension linkage (Switch Infinity) and did a terrific job of filling in as a trail bike. However, those that still favored big wheels and wanted to build up an enduro machine silently hoped that Yeti still had something in the works. Yeti certainly delivered with the SB5. 5 and it's become the gold standard in which all long-travel 29ers are judged. The SB5. 5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike that we have here is one of our favorite builds from Yeti and packs exactly what we want and no additional fluff: TURQ Carbon frame, FOX Factory suspension, and SRAM's excellent X01 wide-range group. Bikes like the 5. 5 ushered in a movement that legitimized wagon wheels for big-hit trial bike use and Richie Rude has piloted a 5. 5 to an Enduro World Series race win. Modern geometry, materials, and suspension design build a frame that is an absolute demon when the trail heads down and the clock starts, but it never works against you when it is time to head back up and do it again or transfer to the next stage. This frame benefits from Yeti's TURQ Series carbon fiber which is the highest quality material that Yeti constructs frames from and it offers the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance. This results in a bike that feels smooth, solid, and aggressive yet gives up nothing in the durability and fatigue category. The higher modulus carbon allows Yeti to shave about 400 grams from the standard Carbon series bikes which should help some on grueling technical climbs. The heart of Yeti's suspension design is the Switch Infinity platform. What it yields is excellent deep travel support, sensitive smal...

It's a pleasure riding all the new bikes that come through our doors, but one bike that has really left a lasting impression is the Yeti SB5. 5. It's such a blast to ride at speed and considering that it's a bike that can handle such gnarly terrain, it isn't a pig to pedal all day or feel like a slug on the climbs. Taking this frame to its highest potential and lust-worthiness is the XX1 Eagle group. If you are looking for the paramount build on the ultimate enduro and trail rig, look no further than the SB5. 5 Turq XX1 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike.The frame construction on this bike utilizes TURQ Series carbon and Yeti denotes it as the highest quality carbon fiber available offering the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance. This results in a bike that feels smooth, solid, and aggressive, exactly what we want in a ride! EWS World Champion Richie Rude and Yeti's in-house testing team and ambassadors constantly put TURQ frames to the test on rugged terrain in remote locations and that leaves us never questioning frame durability or strength. Based on the feedback Yeti receives, they fine tune every detail down to the most minute component so the bike can perform best in the environment it was intended.At the heart of what allows Yeti bikes to ride as well as they do, is the Switch Infinity suspension platform. Switch Infinity utilizes a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel. This provides excellent anti-squat characteristics for superior pedaling performance and ideal suspension characteristics as it gets deeper into its travel. Yeti (and no one else for that matter) wouldn't be able to produce a suspension design that feels this linear and with this amount of anti-squat with a traditional link design. Working with FOX, this translating pivot uses the finest quality low-friction seals, bushings, and bearings and is super durable and dependable. Yeti has field tested the parts for over three years and the o...

If you regularly find yourself racing enduros, ripping laps in the park, or attacking the biggest lines on the mountain, the Yeti SB6 GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike is your weapon of mass destruction. Its six inches of quality travel will have you blasting through rocky singletrack at scare-yourself warp speed and cornering with an alacrity that will leave other bikes in its wake. If you want a machine with the absolute best big hit capabilities that will get you down the mountain on shuttle and lift missions but that's not so single-minded that it couldn't pedal back up if you wanted to, the SB6 is among the leaders of a very small class. For a bike with such an appetite for aggressive terrain, the SB6's carbon frame pedals along with surprising proficiency while tackling big epics, no doubt helped along with the lightweight carbon frame and efficient Switch Infinity suspension platform. Yeti's standard Carbon frame is every bit as strong and stiff as its TURQ carbon, but with a slightly higher weight that rides just north of half a pound. Dollars to doughnuts, that is something we will gladly accept since we'll pocket the difference for post ride burritos, race entries, and beer. Always beer. This build is equal parts performance and value. The extraordinary GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain has us wondering why doubles even exist anymore since it's plentiful range saves grunting up the steepest climbs with a comically massive 50 tooth bail-out gear. Other components of note on this quality build include SRAM Guide R brakes that stop on a dime and the DT Swiss M1900 wheels, whose 30mm internal width plumps up the Maxxis tires to help pick apart technical lines at blurring speeds. Beyond its impressive build, the SB6 is a sure-footed steed that's a favorite of enduro racers and aggressive riders in need of a confident machine capable of tackling rough and rugged terrain with aplomb.

The Yeti SB6 Turq frame is the exact frame that Yeti's EWS team rides to victory on the many varied tracks on the international circuit. Innovations in carbon technology allow Yeti to construct a frame that's tough enough to handle the burliest enduro stages and biggest lines in the park yet still light enough to pedal all day with your buds in the backcountry. Packed with six inches of Switch Infinity travel, the SB6 is engineered to excel at a World Championship level as well as your local KOM's. Yeti lab tests their frames to rigorous standards (the SB6 is subjected to downhill frame caliber testing) for stiffness and impacts and it claims their high modulus Turq carbon fiber to be every bit as strong and stiff as their traditional carbon, but with significant weight savings in the neighborhood of 9. 3 ounces. The SB6's hardware and parts are custom made and not just some off the shelf items. This ensures all the bits fit exceptionally well and interfaces stay that way to perform at a high level for a long time. The collet-style axle system on the pivots reduces bearing wear. Enduro Max sealed bearings have full-complement chromium steel balls and are ideally suited to the high-load, low rotation applications of suspension pivots. Integrated ISCG-05 mounts on the PF92 bottom bracket shell allow you to mount a chainguide, if needed, for when the going gets rough. Internal cable routing keeps the frame's lines clean and rattle-free. The integrated rear axle and derailleur hanger system simplifies the rear end and increases the rigidity of the hanger ensuring crisp shifting up and down the cassette. Molded rubber guards on the downtube and chainstay keeps things quiet and protects the carbon in these vulnerable areas. Clearance for 2. 5in tires allow for a healthy amount of rubber barreling down the trail.
