THE SB5.5 IS WHERE THE TRAIL, ALL-MOUNTAIN AND GRAVITY BIKE INTERSECT
Richie Rude, along with the rest of Yeti’s in-house test team, agree that this lightweight bike eats up grueling technical climbs and hauls downhill. Forget any preconceived notions about 29ers, thanks to an impeccable frame design, shortened chain stays and aggressive suspension spec, this bike is easy to maneuver and feels lively and quick on the descents.
Utilizing the same design and geometry of the higher end SB5.5 TURQ series, the SB5.5 Carbon offers similar stiffness and durability with only a 240 gram (0.5 lb) increase in weight. The SB5.5 Carbon is built to be responsive and lively, while still capable of withstanding punishing descents.
The bike’s 17.2 inch chainstays supporting the 29er wheel platform strike an optimal balance of stability and maneuverability. To achieve this shortened chainstay designers eliminated the front derailleur mount and utilized a Boost rear spacing, but still keept true to Yeti’s classic long geometry. To balance the bike’s front end, we chose to use a long travel 51mm offset fork combined with a 66.5 degree head angle. This allowed us to precisely tune the bike’s mechanical trail and wheelbase.
Outfitted with the most sought-after drivetrain in the industry, the SB5.5 Carbon GX Eagle is ready to take flight on your local trails and bike parks. Yeti rounded out the Shimano-centered bike spec with Fox Factory suspension, the aggressive Maxxis Minion DHF and Aggressor tires, along with Shimano XT brakes with monster 180mm rotors. You have your choice between the DT SWISS 350 W/XM481 RIM or Carbon wheels. The final touch is a burly Fox Transfer post to adjust to the ever-changing terrain..
