Yeti SB 5
Yeti took everything you enjoyed about last years SB5c and turned it into a more refined mountain bike for advanced riding. The geometry tweaks include a bit tighter head tube angle and steeper seat tube angle that make you feel more on top of the bike. The shorter chainstays and a slightly longer front-end balance this out in a way that allows you to deliver more power while feeling more nimble. The result is an even more playful bike that allows you to ride even harder and faster.
The translating pivot automatically switches direction as the bike moves through its travel so your pedal power is never compromised at any point in the bikes travel. Inside are a pair of greased bushings that move up and down on two Kashima coated rails, don’t worry it’s not an extra shock that needs to be filled with air, just keep it greased.
The Fox factory suspension delivers an out of the box best in class ride while the DT Swiss XM421 wheels offer uncompromising performance versus weight. High modulus carbon fiber main frame and swing arm built with steeper seat tube angles have made many cross country riders happy about this better pedaling position.
The Yeti SB5 is available in our Vail bike shop demo fleet, stop in and let us get one fitted up personally for you.
