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.
Now offered in our most advanced-level TURQ carbon, the SB5 offers an ideal combination of responsiveness, durability, and supple ride quality. With internal cable routing, lower stand-over height and improved kinematics, the SB5 continues its legacy as an all-around trail bike ready for light park days and epic backcountry quests. The SB5 TURQ series frame is 5.50 LBS (2.49 KG) and features our most optimized carbon layup and production techniques.
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
