SB5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Yeti Cycles
Yeti Cycles' 2018 SB5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike gives you everything you want and need in a modern trail-slaying machine. This SB5 gets a no-nonsense build with a wheelset featuring lightweight DT Swiss XM421 rims that are just as wide as a downhill rim from a couple years ago. They spin on DT Swiss 350 hubs renowned for their reliability. SRAM's excellent X01 Eagle drivetrain provides exacting shifts and a 50t bailout gear. The range on offer with this cassette essentially puts extra chainrings and front derailleurs on the endangered species list. Yeti even specs the X01 Eagle crankset, which is the same crank that comes on the top-dog XX1 build.

The key to the SB5's great balance lies in its geometry. A 66. 5-degree angle and a slightly longer wheelbase and reach team up for increased stability when mobbing down rocky and rooty trails at high speed. To make sure the bike isn't a sleeper, a steep seat tube angle and shorter chainstays keep handling agile and intuitive as you hop across ruts at speed and navigate up loose, steep terrain. A low bottom bracket inspires cornering confidence to let off the brakes and lean the bike over. The Switch Infinity suspension system is key in providing great quality travel that works with you in every conceivable trail situation. This system's linear path allows it to be much more sensitive to small bumps. Yeti can control the levera...

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.
