SB165 Carbon C2 GX/X01 Eagle Mountain Bike by Yeti Cycles
There's no question that Yeti's focus as of late has been refining their big-wheeled lineup, especially considering that their last three bike releases were all 29ers and it's been almost two years since they've bestowed us with a fresh 27. 5in steed. Rest assured that while we've been contemplating the future of 27. in wheels, Yeti has been hard at work building their biggest, baddest, longest-travel Super Bike to date, and it comes in the form of the SB165 Carbon C2 GX/X01 Eagle Mountain Bike. Equipped with 165mm of Switch Infinity suspension driven by a coil shock, a 180mm fork up front, super slack geometry, and of course, 27. 5in wheels, the SB165 is made to tackle the burliest, steepest, most technical descents you can possibly find while still being efficient enough to pedal back to the top of the mountain for more. It's a bike that's equally at home sending big hits at the bike park as it is racing gnarly enduro courses, and it's just as willing to jump right over rock gardens as it is taking the point-and-shoot approach. If this sounds like your kind of jam, take a closer look at the SB165 because this bike has all the right ingredients for a solid helping of pure fun.A lot of mountain bikers are familiar with the SB6--a bike that dominated the Enduro World Series for a number of years at the hands of Richie Rude. 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 and steep, washed out chutes. The longer reach and slacker angles mean the wheelbase has also grown considerably compared to the SB6--a full 1. 6-inches to be ex..
