THE ANSWER FOR RIDERS LOOKING FOR A VERSATILE 29’R RIG.
Forget the 29er’s of the past. The Yeti SB4.5 frame is designed specifically to optimize the 29" wheel platform and has a distinctly different personality. Riders will feel perfectly balanced between the wheels instead feeling top heavy or awkward. The proficient Switch Infinity suspension platform and short chainstays make this bike feel effortless on climbs and lively and plush on descents. For a bike that so clearly excels at climbing, the SB4.5 is incredibly balanced because of its long top tube and slack 67.4-degree head angle. Coupled with an optimal chainstay length and Switch Infinity suspension the SB4.5 feels more capable than a traditional 4.5” travel bike.
Carbon Series bikes maintain Yeti’s award-winning ride quality and technology standards while only sacrificing minimal weight over their Turq line. Yeti utilizes a less high modulus carbon in their carbon series frames and pairs them with a carefully chosen component package to balance performance and price.
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. They only use the best components in its construction such as Kashima coated stanchions for low friction and durability, seals and bushings that are used in Fox’s off-road racing division, and a lightweight forged translating pivot. These parts have been field tested for over three years and the original bushings, seals, and stanchions are still in perfect working condition.
Take the SB4.5’s 29er wheels and combine it with Shimano’s large gear ratio XT/SLX drivetrain for a bike with unstoppable climbing prowess. Throw in 140mm of front suspension from the Fox Performance 34 fork with a Fox Performance DPS shock handling business in the rear, and the SB4.5 descends like a monster truck. Shimano SLX brakes offer modulation perfection and the stopping power you need if you get in too deep. The big 29” DT Swiss wheelset spin smoothly over obstacles, and with Maxxis Ardent tires providing the traction you need to confidently navigate all terrain.
