SB6 Turq XT M8100 Mountain Bike - 2019 by Yeti Cycles
The SB6 is a terrain-gobbling machine, having seen its fair share of regional and EWS wins at the hands of the Yeti Factory Team riders. It's a bike that makes quick work of the biggest and baddest enduro stages or bike park lines, yet is light and efficient enough to pedal all day in the backcountry on big rides with plenty of elevation gain. Pairing six inches of plush Switch Infinity travel with highly capable geometry, the SB6 not only excels on a World Championship level, but is a great option for ripping your local trails with confidence and composure. Compared to earlier iterations of the SB6, this recent model gets upgraded with a downhill-worthy Fox Factory X2 shock, full-length internal cable tunnels for simplified maintenance, and a lifetime warranty on the frame so you can charge hard with confidence in your equipment. The SB6 is a bruiser of a bike, so Yeti tests the frame to DH standards of strength and stiffness. Considering that it has to hold up to the aggressive riding of Richie, a pro who makes the earth shudder beneath him while riding, the SB6 is certainly strong enough for us mortals.

Yeti constructs the frame from their high-modulus TURQ-series carbon fiber, finding the right balance of stiffness and compliance at a weight that's about 250g lighter than the C-series frames, without sacrificing any strength. Home mechanics will rejoice at the addition of full-length cable tunnels in the frame, as well as the lifetime warranty that's now standard on 2019 and newer Yeti carbon frames. The heart of the SB6 is the Switch Infinity suspension yielding 152mm (6. 0in) of plush yet efficient travel. The key to the characteristic Yeti ride quality is the linear suspension curve offered by the translating main pivot, aka the Switch Infinity link. The link mov...
