2022 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 adistinct, big mountain feelfor riders constantly exposedto uncharted terrain
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 HOMEWHENYOU'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.
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.
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.
The hum of tires gripping dirt - the only approved sound on a YETI.
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 cant physically achieve.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.

FRAME LIFETIME WARRANTY
No Fine Print. No BS. All frames 2019 or newer, including the Switch Infinity link, are covered for life against damage due to manufacturing defects for the original purchaser. Paint and finish are covered for 1-year. We will repair or replace, at our discretion, any frame we deem defective. There are a few conditions: you must register it online at YetiCycles.com/registration and you must take it to an authorized Yeti Cycles dealer for processing. Warranty does not cover damage due to ordinary wear and tear, neglect or intentional destruction. Lifetime Warranty applies to all frames (2019 and newer). Model year 2018 and older frames will be covered under our previous warranty (5-year or 2-year based on time of purchase). Simple as that. No fine print.
