Yeti's SB4.5 is the answer for riders looking for a versatile 29’r rig. The SB4.5 frame design is optimized for 29" wheels and has a distinctly different personality than 29ers of old, ensuring you feel perfectly balanced between the wheels – not top heavy or lumbering. The proficient Switch Infinity suspension platform, short chainstays, and sensibly slack 67.4-degree head angle make this bike feel effortless on climbs and lively and plush on descents. The Carbon series frame is 5.93 pounds and preserves Yeti-performance at a more aggressive price point by using a slightly modified carbon material and different layup. The Fox 34 Performance fork tears up 140mm of choppy terrain, while Shimano's 1x11-speed XT/SLX drivetrain cranks you up the mountain fast, and Shimano brakes offer the stopping power you need if you get in too deep. Those big DT Swiss wheels roll on grippy Maxxis Ardents, while a Race Face dropper post and cockpit keep you loose and in control.
