In contrast to the long-low-and-slack trends that have been hitting the bike industry by storm, Yeti stays true to the cross-country aficionado with its SB100 Turq T1 XT Mountain Bike. This XC-steed offers geometry that lends itself to cross-country race rockets, providing snappy responsiveness, powerful climbing, and lofty 29-inch wagon wheels that make quick work of ribbons of singletrack. This year the faithful short-travel 29er is back again to take on race days and trail riding alike, but with a stealthy new paint job that forgoes most of the bold and flashy logos that adorned last year's model, opting for a much more sleek and understated aesthetic that lets the bike riding speak for itself. It still packs in the lively geometry figures that make it far more confident than its numbers would leave you suspecting, which we think is a testament to Yeti's cross-country prowess from its previous generations of steeds.

But bikes tossed together with borderline anorexic components can feel twitchy and nerve wracking when you've got to push it through technical descents, and to truly transcend categories you need more stability. The SB100 calls on much of Yeti's heritage to draw inspiration from diverse rides capable of taking on much rougher and rowdier terain, and even though the geometry and suspension have cross-country riding and racing in their roots, and in their intended purpose, its hard not to notice the trail and enduro capabilities that seep over from Yeti's longer and slacker machines. The brief exodus from the XC scene allowed for a few reboots and allowed Yeti to t...
