SB130 Turq T2 X01 Eagle Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
Luckily for us bike enthusiasts, mountain bike technology is better than ever. From cross-country shredders to enduro-race machines, bikes are becoming more usable on a wider variety of trails. While this versatility makes riding any bike more fun, it can make it difficult to narrow down a purchasing choice to a single bike. Hot topics such as slack geometry, wheel sizes, and long-travel make things even more confusing. Fortunately more capable bikes means the "middle of the road" category just got wider, and mid-travel 29er trail bikes now shred everything from long-distance backcountry epics to beefy bike park jump lines. The Yeti SB130 Turq T2 X01 Eagle Mountain Bike sits right at the front of the pack, making quick work of steep technical trails and allowing you to billygoat up climbs that your buddies walk up without thinking twice. Anyone who has ridden the Switch Infinity rear linkage can attest to how it simultaneously provides grippy traction, supple forgiveness, and playful support.

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 emplo...
