SB5.5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Yeti Cycles
The mountain bike market has certainly seen a growth of longer travel enduro machines as of late. The advantages of big wheels cannot be denied and components, wheels, and geometry have reached a point allowing more aggressive riders to exploit them. While the SB6 is typically the weapon of choice for enduro pilots Richie Rude and Cody Kelly, on some high speed courses or days when the transitions are far between, they will reach for the 5. 5. After spending some saddle time on this bike, it removes a lot of people's preconceived notions about 29ers, and we think bikes like this are at least part of the reason why the industry has finally embraced wagon wheels outside of cross country machines.

Of course we'd all love to own the TURQ frame in a money-is-no-object world but, the value of the Carbon 5. 5 with GX Eagle is hard to refute. Yeti claims that the key to the bike's impressive handling is balanced geometry. Colorado, from where the brand hails, does offer diverse riding opportunities and we're sure that the feedback from the EWS squad from tracks around the world help distill the numbers we see on the 5. 5. It's also evident that Yeti isn't one to quickly jump on the "latest geometry" b...
