The visually stunning carbon fiber construction of the SB-66 Carbon is sure to give you butterflies in your stomach like love at first site. Weiging in at a diminutive 6 pounds, the high modulus carbon fiber frame flaunts an agile and lively ride that can handle the assault and battery of the most unforgiving trails. Yeti wants your SB-66 Carbon to reamin as good-looking as it is good-riding, why not kill two birds with one stone? The very reason the SB-66 Carbon features custom guards with a polymer rubber coating to protect the undercarriage of the carbon fiber chassis from trail fragments. As you move in closer for a better glance you’ll begin to notice this isn’t just another single pivot, but an innovative suspension design called Switch Technology. The oversized main pivot actually contains a second pivot (lower pivot of the swing arm) that is offset within the main. This eccentric mechanism switches direction as the bike moves through its travel creating an optimized wheel path without unexpected spikes or wallows. Light, fast and efficient, the SB-66 has everything you've ever wanted in an all mountain machine. Its no wonder why the Yeti SB 66 won the “Mountain Bike” editor’s choice award.
At the beginning of the travel, the eccentric link is rotating in a rearward direction, guiding the lower pivot of the swing arm rearward. This counter-clockwise motion coupled with the initial rearward wheel path creates an excellent pedaling platform, making the SB-66 Carbon pedal and climb crisply without sacrificing small bump sensitivity. The mid stroke has a flat linear shape, creating a large “sweet spot”, allowing the suspension to react better to bigger hits. Once the travel reaches about 100mm, the eccentric link starts to rotate in the forward direction. This means the rate at which the chain stay grows drops off quickly, allowing the suspension to work independently of chain forces. Because the suspension isn’t being impeded by chain growth in the last third of the travel, the smooth feel in the middle continues all the way to full compression without a harsh bottom out feeling.
Yeti Cycles knows that a frame forged by gods would be nothing without a exceptionally dependable component set, which of course is why they went with none other than Shimano XT to complete the drivetrain. Shimano's XT group makes up the crankset, front and rear derailleurs, and shifters, efficiently turning your energy into rythm and motion. The Fox 34 Kashima coated fork with a 15mm axle and 160mm of travel, paired with the Fox CTD Adjust K+ (8.5”x2.5”) rear shock, is certain to gobble up rocks, roots, ruts and bumps. For the cockpit, Yeti has employed the leaders of cockpit compents, with an Easton Havoc Carbon handlebar, Thomson X4 stem and Thomson Elite seatpost.
With Switch Technology gracing your rig, you'll be hounding for grades to climb, and what goes up must come down, and what comes down must eventually come to a halt. Here is where Shimano makes its appearance yet again. The XT brakes and brake levers offer improved control, consistency and stopping confidence. The SB-66 Carbon Race rolls on DT Swiss 350/XM LTD wheels, laced with Maxxis tires; a recipe for race domination.
Every detail on the SB-66 Carbon Race screams, “Ride me!” From the 6 inches of travel to the carbon fiber frame construction. So get out from behind the wheel and into the saddle of the SB-66 Race, and wage battle on that daunting ascent that’s been looming over you, head to the bike park for an adrenaline fix, or ride your way to the top step of the podium.
