Wagon wheels may offer some quick-spinning ground-covering abilities, but we think there are few things better than the nimble flick-ability of a 27. 5in steed, and we'd wager that the designers at Yeti agree with us. While Yeti may have taken a little hiatus from 27. 5 development when the 29er surge took off, it seems as though the brand was sitting back, quietly tinkering to find the perfect 27. 5in enduro geometry, which soars to the front of Yeti's Rip lineup with the new SB140 Turq T1 XT Mountain Bike.

So go ahead, drag your handlebars through a berm, try new jumps and drops, pedal all day long, because the SB140 can do it all with unmatched precision and control. While its common to see a new bike launched in order to replace an older model, the SB140 goes all-new. It brings totally unique geometry up to bat, with a steep and peppy 77-degree seat tube angle that's ideal for soaring up climbs, and hammering on pedals when you hit a buff section of flat, but this doesn't come at the cost of a compromised descent.

While the 27. 5 wheels and peppy 140mm rear travel might have you thinking that this bike is all play, the long wheelbase and low bottom bracket height will tell you otherwise. It stays composed under pressure, and handles descents with confidence when other shorter bikes might waiver, without...
