The SB5c Beti is built for hard-charging women who are looking for the ideal trail bike. Turq Series bikes are made with the highest quality carbon fiber available and offer the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance. The result is a bike that feels smooth, solid and aggressive. Every bike is tested by the best racers in the world, including EWS World Champion Richie Rude, our in-house testing team and ambassadors around the world. We fine tune every bike down to the most minute component.
By changing up our carbon material and layup, were able to offer a carbon bike with the same stiffness and ride quality with a small, 350 gram(0.77 lbs) weight penalty over our TURQ series. Now with internal cable routing and new sleek frame design that offers even lower stand-over height, this is the bike for which mountain gals pine. Available in one color and three spec kits. The SB5 Beti Carbon Series frames are 6.27 LBS (2.84 KG) and preserve performance at a more agressive price point.
All touch-points on the bike were an obvious place to start, so we chose a WTB Diva saddle, smaller diameter grips, and narrower handlebars (though, in the spectrum of handlebar widths, they are still relatively wide at 720mm). We also changed crank lengths on the extra small and small bikes from 175mm to 170mm. The smaller cranks are easier to spin and give added clearance in technical sections. what is specific: customed tuned fox shock, shorter crank length, customized handlebar width
"When we designed the SB5 Beti, we made it to excel in the most demanding situations. Our team of female pros and product testers are aggressive riders and wanted a lightweight bike that could handle the rigors of long days in the backcountry or even lift served access. We took the proven SB5 and added a lighter shock tune, womens specific saddle, shorter crank arms and slightly narrower handlebars. With the lowest standover in category, youll have the added confidence knowing frame clearance wont be an issue"
