SB4.5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Yeti Cycles
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..

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
