SB5 XT/SLX Carbon


2017 Yeti Cycles SB5 XT/SLX Carbon

Born from the trails of Colorado, Yeti’s SB5 is everything a trailbike should be — nimble on the climbs and dominant on descents. With a sleek frame design, internal cable routing, Boost spacing, lower stand-over height and metric suspension all atop Yeti’s Switch Infinity translating pivot, it is the go-to choice for any trail adventure. The SB5 Carbon series frame is 6.27 lbs and preserves Yeti-performance at a more aggressive price point by using a slightly modified carbon material and different layup. Yeti’s Switch Infinity suspension platform and smart frame design grants you the trail-ruling trinity of deep travel support, small bump sensitivity, and rock-solid climbing. Add 5 inches of ample Fox-supplied travel to the equation, and you’ll be nearly unstoppable. Shimano’s 1x11-speed XT/SLX drivetrain lets you blitz up the incline, while Shimano brakes scrub speed on the descent. The 27.5-inch DT Swiss wheels roll on grippy Maxxis Ardent tires for bite over loose and technical terrain. A Race Face Turbine dropper post and cockpit keep you loose and in control.
