SB4.5 Turq XX1 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Yeti Cycles
Aggressively sculpted and striking in aesthetic form, the Yeti SB4. 5 Turq XX1 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike is certainly one of the most alluring mountain bikes we've feasted our eyes upon. Yet, we'd be amiss to purely focus on its beautiful lines, which turn your attention away from its dazzling trail chops and genre-blurring versatility.

Packing Yeti's famed Switch Infinity Suspension, the SB4. 5 lends itself to adventurous rides with its efficient pedaling platform, yet it's never abusive when the trail turns rugged or plunges downhill.

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.
