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.
The SB5.5 TURQ Series is designed to be burly, responsive, and lively. Built to be strong enough to handle team rider Richie Rude's speed and brute force, but agile enough to accommodate Cody Kelly's unmistakable style, the SB5.5 TURQ series is redefining 29ers as we know them. Offered in two colors with three spec kits.
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.
Words like dream bike come to our minds when we think of the SB5.5 TURQ Series X01 Eagle. For this bike, Yeti went with the 1x12 SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain and Guide RS brakes, Fox Factory suspension, the Race Face SIXC 800mm handlebar, and Turbine stem and Turbine Dropper post. You'll often find our employees charging our local trails and bike parks in Golden on this exact bike, smiling from ear to ear.
