Product Description
SB165 Carbon C1 SLX Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
It's no secret that most new bikes are equipped with 29-inch wheels, and Yeti generally adheres to this trend with efficiency-focused race bikes. But Yeti knows that there will always be a subset of riders that prefer the smaller wheel size, and that even some of their racers fall into this category. While wagon wheels may roll faster than their smaller counterparts in many situations, 27. 5in wheels respond more quickly to rider input, which means a tighter turning radius, a greater willingness to go airborne, and in many cases, more fun to be had. Yeti hasn't forgotten about our fun-loving friends, and for those of you who like to ride hard and go big, they've created the SB165, and anyone who's ridden it knows that it's here to stay. The SB165 Carbon C1 SLX build boasts 165mm of Switch Infinity rear travel driven by a Fox coil shock, a 180mm Fox 38 fork, slacked-out geometry, intended to clear big gaps and blast down the burliest and most technical trails you can find. Sure, it'll work great as an enduro race bike, especially on steep courses with chunky rocks and tricky corners, but compared to its race-bred sibling the SB150, the SB165 likes to fly just as much as plow, a playful combination that's sure to put a smile on any shredder's face when you're ripping laps at the bike park or blasting down your local DH trails.The SB165 is essentially the replacement for the SB6, a bike that dominated the Enduro World Series for a number of years at the hands of Yeti's team riders. The SB165 builds on that foundation, but Yeti pushes the geometry into fully modern territory to stay ahead of the current crop of long-travel sleds. The reach has grown by 40mm in size large compared to the SB6, landing at a whopping 480mm, and the head angle was slackened by a full 1. 5-degrees down to 63. 5-degrees. These numbers are pretty close to what you'd find on downhill race bikes, which means riders can enjoy absolute confidence carrying speed through treacherous rock gardens ...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
