2021 YETI SB130YETI
The Rebel Yell Of The Middle Child. Fed A Steady Diet Of Super-Tech Climbs. The Sb130 Was Built To Crush The Biggest Terrain. No Trail "Too" Anything. Point It Up Or Down. Enter A Last-Minute Enduro Just For The Eff Of It. We Say No One Bike Can Rule All. But The Sb130? One Bike That Rules.
The SB130 possesses a distinct, big mountain feel for riders constantly exposed to uncharted terrain
- 1. Long Reach
Puts riders in a balanced position perfectly centered on the bike, ready to tackle the unknown.2. 150mm Fork
Because our 130mm of rear suspension outperforms similarly stroked forks and pairs well with our more forward biased position.3. Front End Doesn't Wander Climbing
And stays composed when pointed downhill – the rider position remains neutral.
- Low Slung Long Drop.
Long stroke dropper post capability throughout entire size range — for greater agility.
- At home When You're Not.
The deeper you go, the higher you climb, the later you brake, the more comfortable SB130 becomes. Bottom line, the term “trail bike” gets used pretty liberally at Yeti.
- A shock tune unique, to the SB130.
Through a process of gathering qualitative data about “feel” from our athletes and validation through quantitative telemetry data, we were able to push the performance of the SB130. We developed the tune to enhance its mid-stoke and bottom-out control while maintaining ascending efficiency. While the tune is exclusive, the Fox shock it’s built from is not, making replacement parts readily available, or further personalization accessible.
- Leverage Rate
The patented Switch Infinity has been laid out to have supple small bump compliance but ramp up quicker in the mid-stroke while still allowing for bottom-out control with a 12% progressive leverage ratio.
A straighter, more linear progression curve means it’s easier to tune shocks to pair with the suspension kinematics, and we don't have to rely on damping circuits to compensate. Being able to manipulate the leverage rate without affecting the anti-squat characteristics is unique to our patented Switch Infinity suspension. What does this mean with 6k of vert behind you on the day? You’ll have more left in the tank to grab another 6k of vert, up or down. That’s the SB130’s best trait.
How it performs matters far more than the % on a chart. But if asked by a Tribe member, now you know.
Big mountain feel, capable, lively, with a centered rider position.
- Balance. Achieved.
Refined for the unknown and everything in between the SB130's Switch Infinity provides more progressive ride without effecting the anti-squat properties.
Across our line, we have chosen a relatively flat and high anti-squat curve in beginning and mid-section of travel where pedaling commonly occurs a.k.a the pedaling zone. This creates an efficient pedaling platform through your entire pedaling zone, there is an inflection point where the Switch Infinity link moves down, dropping the anti-squat drastically. Riders are typically not pedaling in this zone, so chain forces have less of an effect on the suspension performance. Decoupling of the chain forces allows the suspension to work more efficiently to absorb impacts making the feel of a Yeti distinct.
- Silence Is TURQ
Internally routed cable tubes from end to end for silent function. And less translation of housing during suspension movement.
- Quiet Riot.
The hum of tires gripping dirt - the only approved sound on a YETI.
At the heart of the SB130 suspension design is our patented Switch Infinity suspension system. Switch Infinity utilizes a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel providing excellent anti-squat characteristics.
- Switch Infinity 01: Pivot Translation
Switch Infinity utilizes a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel. This provides a tailored anti-squat curve while allowing the leverage ratio to be tuned independently, something other systems can’t physically achieve.
- Switch Infinity 02: Bottomless Feel
An initially high anti-squat value delivers superior pedaling performance. Further, into the travel, the anti-squat quickly drops off to allow the custom-tuned FOX Racing shock to perform as intended. These characteristics provide excellent mid-stroke support and a bottomless feel.
- Switch Infinity 03: Tunable
Switch Infinity is a versatile system easily adaptable to different travel platforms. The system can be mounted in any orientation and can achieve a myriad of kinematics depending on the design intent. The Switch Infinity system can control this much more precisely than other suspension designs because of the linear path of the main pivot.
- Switch Infinity 03: Durable
The Switch Infinity is a simple, lightweight, bombproof system built by FOX Racing Shox from proven suspension components and engineered and tested to withstand the worst riding conditions. We use seals and bushings that are used in FOX's off-road racing division and a lightweight forged translation pivot.
Made with the highest quality carbon fiber available, TURQ series bikes offer the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance.
- Materials 01: TURQ Series
TURQ Series bikes are made with the highest quality carbon fiber available and offer the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance. The result is a bike that feels smooth, solid and aggressive. Every bike is tested by the best racers in the world, including EWS World Champion Richie Rude, our in-house testing team and ambassadors around the world.
- Materials 02: C/ Series
By making small changes in the carbon fiber layup of our TURQ Series bikes, we are able to create a more aggressively priced carbon high-performance mountain bike. C-Series frames maintain the strength and stiffness of the TURQ Series. The carbon fiber in C-Series weighs a bit more, about 225g per frame. Every bike model is offered in at least one C-Series option with high-end components.
- Materials 03: 225 Grams Lighter
- Highest Quality Carbon Fiber Available
- Perfect Balance Of Stiffness &Amp; Compliance
- Optimized Layup Reduces Weight
- Durability Tested By Richie "F-Ing" Rude
The SB130 frame and Switch Infinity link are covered by a Lifetime Warranty. You can race, jump, ford streams, shred the gnar or ride it hard. Don't worry, you don't need a lawyer to decipher how it works.
