Yeti has always epitomized the crux of mountain bike innovation. Last year, they redesigned their iconic SB5, giving the frame fresh geometry. So when you throw your leg over the new SB5 Carbon, you can immediately sense the progressive feel it boasts. An exceedingly capable trail bike, the SB5 makes clearing technical climbs much more manageable, while eliminating some of the difficulties that come with tough descents. The seat tube has been steepened to optimize pedaling position, and the headtube’s been tweaked to give more slack to the front end. Having made a great thing that much greater, Yeti maintains their position as one of the foremost mountain bike manufacturers.
The Carbon SB5 XT/SLX Bike comes with a rad Shimano kit for 2018. The 1x11 drivetrain functions with high performance precision on a variety of terrain types. An 11-46T cassette gives you the range you need to conquer steep grades. The Fox Performance suspension absorbs shock with soft, velvety plushness. The Race Face cockpit is wide, low, and responsive, giving you awesome handling at high and low speeds alike. DT Swiss wheels and Maxxis Ardent tires are fast rolling and stable. Pick up the new SB5 Carbon and enjoy its awesome off road prowess.

Superb machine but some components did not last long
Great bike super playful and fast. I did change out the tires to DHF and Aggressor since Ardent's were too soft for my preference. The back tire especially would roll and burp air in turns. It does climb as easy with this tire combo but at least i'm not washing out in turns going down. The bad, only had it for few months and had some issues
- Fox Transfer dropper post stopped retracting
- Seatpost and headset bolts started rusting
- Crankset comes loose all the time (RaceFace one)
