SB100 Carbon C2 GX/X01 Eagle Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
You're here to crush climbs, and race through ribbons of cross country singletrack, but that doesn't mean on your days off you don't crave adventure that waits beyond the local trail network. Yeti's SB100 Carbon C2 GX/X01 Eagle Mountain Bike gets it. While some might look at its modern XC geometry and set it aside for race days alone, we'd argue that it's more of a "downcountry" steed, built to rocket through the masses and push towards the podium on the climbs, and put in some serious distance between you and second place on ripping descents. It's built with swift, steep geometry that charges up technical climbs with vigor, while Switch Infinity's suspension prowess allows it to perform like a trail bike when you point it downhill, offering you more confidence than your average 4-inch travel ride can muster up. Yeti packs in this particular build with a perfect blend of pocket-friendly and performance-oriented components, putting your money where it matters most, like a snappy SRAM X01 Derailleur and DT Swiss hoops, and balancing it with the workhorse GX Eagle components to keep your wallet happy.

Fortunately, the SB100, has some pretty good lineage to draw inspiration from and even though the geometry and suspension have cross country riding and racing on its mind as the intended purpose, it's hard not to notice the trail and enduro highlights that bleed over from Yeti's longer travel offerings. The brief exodus from the XC scene allowed for a few reboots and allowed Yeti to truly build a no-compromise bike that could climb and descend, not just one that was great at one and mediocre at the ot...
