SB5+ Carbon XT/SLX Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Yeti Cycles
At the crossroads of trail, XC, and light enduro comes Yeti's SB5+ Carbon XT/SLX Complete Mountain Bike. With its plus size tires, it's eager to lay down the traction making quick work of any technical climb and flotation over any and all trail furniture, for a composed and fun blast back down to the bottom. Unlike other trail bikes that can do double duty as both a 29er and a plus bike, The Yeti SB5 is purpose built around plus tires, so no sacrifices to geometry or suspension kinematics are lost along the way. The frame features clearance for up to 3-inch tires and the surefootedness is greatly appreciated on sketchy loose corners and rocky, ledge-filled climbs.The SB5+ is analogous to the non-plus SB5 with respects to the geometry and suspension travel, however the rear triangle sees redesigned elevated chainstays that allows for increased rigidity and tire clearance needed for wider tires. The raised stays allow Yeti to still build a short (17. 2-inches) and snappy rear end while adding additional clearance by getting them up and out of the way. On the trail this translates to snappy handling and increases the power transfer from the pedals to the rear wheel.Yeti's excellent Switch Infinity suspension platform finds a home on the frame and governs the 127mm of travel from the FOX DPS shock. The design helps the already traction hungry plus tires find grip when the trail is loose and rough, and seamlessly transitions to a bottomless feel when crushing it down the steeps in full plow mode. The key to the excellent ride lies in the translating pivot that automatically switches directions as the shock moves through its stroke. This maximizes anti-squat characteristics while pedaling for excellent climbing and an efficient ride, while the linear path of the system allows unparalleled small bump sensitivity and allows all of the travel to be utilized for soaking up massive square edge hits and drops with ease. The 5-inches feels like less on extended climbs and w...
