The Yeti SB5 is the next iteration of our most popular all-mountain bike. Born from the trails of Colorado, this bike represents everything a trail bike should be lightweight, nimble on climbs and dominant on descents. With an updated, sleek frame design, internal cable routing, BOOST spacing, lower stand-over height and metric suspension all atop Yetis Switch Infinity translating pivot, it is the go-to choice for any trail adventure. The SB5 is everything a trailbike should be nimble on the climbs and dominant on descents.
By changing up carbon materials and layups, we were able to make the SB5 Carbon frame with the stiffness and smooth ride quality you expect from a Yeti at a nominal weight penalty over the TURQ Series model 350 grams (0.77 lbs). Expect the same internal cable routing, lower standover height, and metric suspension as the SB5 TURQ, just with a frame weight of 6.2 lbs (2.84 KG). Available in two colors and three spec kits. The SB5 Carbon Series frames are 6.27 LBS (2.84 KG) and preserve performance at a more agressive price point.
We took everything we loved about the original SB5c and made it into a more refined machine. We made a few geometry tweaks: a bit slacker head tube angle, steeper seat tube angle, shorter chainstays, and a slightly longer front-end. The result is an even more playful bike that can be pushed even harder.
Working with FOX we retooled the SB5s shock with an exclusive air volume configuration and tune. This resulted in better mid-stroke compression and small bump sensitivity providing a wider range of riders with a custom feel. There are a few other secrets, but thats all we have to say about that
