SB5.5 Turq XT Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Yeti Cycles
No longer reserved for just the cross-country crowd, 29-inch wheels are proving to be fast options for trail, enduro, and even DH bikes. As such, the mountain bike market's landscape has seen an influx of 29ers with evolved frame geometries and burlier wheels and forks, boosting the reliability and adding stiffness to a standpoint where more aggressive riders are able to exploit them. Yeti was one of the first on board with big wheels on trail bikes going way back to the SB95 and since then it's made incremental changes with its 29ers eventually morphing into two models, the 4. 5 and 5. 5.

So if the trails you like to ride are exceptionally rough, you race enduros, and you like to go fast, Yeti's SB5. 5 Turq XT Complete Mountain Bike checks off all of the boxes and it'll have you pushing your limits and going faster. With carefully selected components, this bike can handle anything you can dish out and keep coming back for more.

When you're racing, every second and gram count, so its nice know you are aboard the same frame the EWS race team counts on as they campaign technical tracks across the globe. If you're the type of rider that's fanatical enough to keep a quiver of tires for different trail conditions and you ke...
