SB5 Turq XT M8100 Mountain Bike - 2019 by Yeti Cycles
Big backcountry rides are our idea of a fun day out on a bike. Key to your amount of enjoyment on that ride is the kind of bike you're on. No need to lug a heavy inefficient bike up long climbs but we also want a bike that lets up rip on the way back down. Of all the bikes we have in our lineup, the Yeti's SB5 is one of our favorite tools for the job. The lightweight TURQ frame, quality Shimano build, and Switch Infinity suspension design builds a bike ready to tackle any trail and promise zero buyer's remorse. The SB5 is the mountain biker's mountain bike. Known for its versatility, the bike can handle a wide variety of trails and rarely would you ever have a bike capable enough to tackle an enduro and an XC race. Not only does it do both quite well, it even excels better than some machines built specifically for each discipline. The 66. 5-degrees headtube angle lets you pick a line for the steep stuff going down and will confidently guide you through some things you would second guess on other bikes. Climbing up rocky, ledge trails isn't a task, it's a treat. Put the power down and let the excellent suspension claw its way up while your buddies are off their bikes and walking. The 73. 6-degree seat tube angle encourages a powerful pedaling position for cleaning impossible lines and puts your weight right where it needs to be. When all you have is a horizon line on the trail, drop the post and trust this Yeti to get you out of the tightest of situations. Boost spacing helps stiffen up the rear end so the suspension is better able to do its job and no power is lost to a flexy rear end. It also allows the chainstays to be placed a little further apart so additional room for bigger tires and mud is available. Stays can be chopped to shorten lengths with the newfound space and in combination with the longer reach a wheelbase, you get a bike that can handle high-speed chunder and still thread the needle through a grove of aspens. Balance and versatility defined....
