SB130 Carbon C2 GX/X01 Eagle Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
For some, fun days on the trail are only achieved through gravity-fueled shuttles, but we think there's a lot of adventure to be found in between, and an all-mountain trail rig better equips us for our average day on the trail. Now, that's not to say that a bike capable of fun is average -- in fact we think they are anything but -- capturing lively pedaling characteristics that rocket you up climbs, with smooth handling on descents is a challenge that's quite daunting, but Yeti Cycles has never shied away from a challenge, and its easy to see with the SB130 Carbon C2 GX/X01 Eagle Mountain Bike. This mid-travel 29er offers best-in-class capability, making quick work of steep, technical trails, while remaining lively and playful on smoother singletrack, too. That means that everyone can get a piece of the fun regardless of your trail preference or riding style. Factor in its pocket-friendly carbon construction, plush Switch Infinity platform with FOX suspension, and a snappy shifting, wide-range SRAM X01 and GX Eagle drivetrain, and you have an ultra-capable bike that won't leave you under-gunned on the descents, or out-biked on the climbs. Longer and slacker continues to be the name of the game, and on the SB130 the numbers lean towards the trend of a more capable descending bike that can still pedal when it's time to earn your turn. Its 65. 5-degree headtube is a full degree slacker than the brands 5. 5, a bike that already pushed the boundaries of a long-travel 29er. Of course this contributes to unflappable stability when descending steep, technical terrain, but usually, a headtube angle so slack would be a bear on climbs and have lazy handling manners on the rest of the trail. This simply isn't the case with the SB130 as it employs a 44mm fork offset to bring the front wheel in closer to the rider so the contact patch is more aft than fore, for improved traction and a front wheel that's less likely to wander when the trail points up.
