Yeti SB5C XT Jenson Bike 2016


Yeti SB5C XT Jenson Bike 2016

The SB5C is a pioneer in Yeti's new wave of superbikes. In a progressive effort to develop the best trail bikes imaginable, Yeti chose to completely revamp their rear pivot system. Their new Switch Infinity technology combines the best of both worlds: creating a bike for trail riders who go big and downhill riders looking for a more ‘enduro’ riding style. The platform brings with it a new generation of technology that has truly never been seen on mountain bikes before.

Aside from its sleek lines and beautiful performance-bred details, the suspension design of the SB5C is its crowning feature. Creating a radically redesigned, completely new suspension platform was no easy task. For four years, Yeti worked side-by-side with the engineers at Fox Racing to develop the new Switch Infinity suspension system. Functionally, the motion is similar to the older Switch design, but by moving away from a rotating eccentric pivot, Yeti was able to design a link with an "infinite" length, eliminating the feeling of the suspension bottoming out. Essentially, the rear suspension changes its wheel direction by translating vertical motion into horizontal motion on a pivot that suspends on two vertical, Kashima-coated stanchions, that Yeti calls a "rail". As the suspension compresses, the rear wheel moves upwards and outwards. The benefits are multi-fold. Switch Infinity infuses the proven big-hit capabilities of their 303 Rail Technology with the pedaling efficiency of the previous Switch system to produce a smoother, lighter, and stiffer rear end, whilst still possessing the climbing prowess and small bump compliance of the original Switch system. This new rail interface eliminates the need to worry about air pressure or oil levels, making the Switch Infinity system virtually maintenance-free. Topping it all off, Switch Infinity is 100 grams lighter in weight than the previous eccentric Switch design.

The SB5C frame features legendary Yeti trail bike geometry (long top tube, low bottom bracket, and slack head angle) and is constructed of high modulus carbon fiber. This frame design paired with the climbing characteristics of the new Switch Infinity technology will result in a lightweight, yet incredibly durable and stiff 5” travel trail bike that knows no boundaries, confidently slaying downhill and flying uphill like there’s no tomorrow. This bike is for the rider who wants to climb fast, descend faster, and stay railed in every corner.

We're proud to say we worked pretty hard on this Custom Collection build. We've combined some of our favorite parts to create a premium kit that delivers the ultimate in price-to-performance ratio. Our handpicked spec features the iconic Shimano XT 1x11 drivetrain, including the XT shifter, rear derailleur and 11-46T cassette. The Race Face Aeffect cranks are equipped with 32T narrow wide chainring which acts as a built-in chain retention system. The capable RockShox Pike RCT3 fork handles the front end suspension duties, delivering 150mm of plush travel. These components work seamlessly together to transfer power directly to the Race Face Aeffect wheels, which are wrapped in Schwalbe Hans Dampf front and rear tires. Finally, a Race Face Atlas 35mm bar and stem along with a Race Face Turbine dropper seatpost round up the cockpit, making this custom build one of the most well equipped and capable trail machines we've ever made.

Trust us. You're not going to find another bike like this.

    I've owned Yeti bicycles since the early 90's , started off with the Yeti Ultimate and then the Yeti ARC and then the Yeti ARS my first foray into full suspension and disc brakes. I'm 57 years young now so I figured I needed something with a little more travel and plusher suspension but I was worried I'd have to sacrifice weight and handling with a bigger wheel since I mostly ride single track.
    I ordered the Yeti SB5C custom Jenson USA build with XT and Race Face group along with Rock Shox 150 mm fork and when it arrived I took it out of the box had very minor assembly and I was off! I got to tell you Yeti got it right on with this rig if you like cross country with a little bit of big stuff thrown in. I took a 25 mile ride this morning and took technical single track along with some twisty fast descents and jumps and this bike handles flawlessly through everything I threw at it. The obstacles I'd usually ride around or walk over got chewed up by the plush suspension and 27.5 wheels. All I had to do was point and pedal. Hats off to Yeti and the Jenson build team for this fantastic bike. The component group on the rig works together to give miles and miles of smiles. I think this bike has extended my MTB riding career at least another 10 years and I still get out and ride the old Yeti's from time to time just for nostalgia.
    Thanks again Jenson for your attention to detail and your tech support.

    Sweet ride!
    Love my new yeti sbc5 XT! A few issues with delivery, but otherwise this thing is awesome!!! The dropper post was a bit finicky out of the box, bust seems good now.

    What can I say. This bike has been a perfect performer, so far. It really is confidence inspiring. I've ridden every scketchy trail section that I used to walk or go around. It's light and nimble, and easy to handle. I hate to say it, because I usually don't believe it. This bike will make you a much better rider.

    This is a great bike, and I've thoroughly enjoyed the first few rides on it. Took only about twenty minutes to finish putting together and was ready to rip. Climbs and descends great.

    Awesome bike
    This bike is absolutely amazing. If you don't race cross country, and want a bike than can do everything else from all day trail riding to downhill this is the bike. Don't hesitate to play with the suspension settings. Depending on the what you want (trail or downhill) and the settings associated with it, you can have a vary soft and comfy bikes or a downhill machine.

    Will this bike accept 2,6" tires? Does it have boost spacing? What's the inner width of the rims? Tubeless ready wheels?
    A shopper on Jun 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No, it's not Boost. The inner width on the rims is 23mm. Yes, they are tubeless ready. Can you fit 2.6"s? You might be able to, but your mileage may vary. It is not designed around those tires.
