SB130 Turq T2 X01 Eagle AXS Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
These days, mountain bikes are as good as they've ever been. Cross-country bikes make quick work of trails that would have been reserved for all-mountain bikes in years past, and longer travel enduro sleds can pedal almost as efficiently as short-travel trail bikes. But with all the variation in wheel sizes, geometry, and suspension designs, it can be tricky to find the right bike to suit your needs. Fortunately, there's one type of bike that excels at pretty much everything, whether it's epic rides on rugged backcountry terrain, hot laps at your local trail system, or a day of shredding jumps at your local bike park.

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 a...
