£4289.35 – Yeti SB150 C1.5 XT 12 Spd 29er Mountain Bike 2022 Raw Carbon
Racing is the sole reason Yeti Esist. They’ve been pinning on numbers and pinning the throttle off road since 1985. So when choices had to be made on the SB150, every single one was made in the name of unbridled speed.AN INFLECTION POINT FOR SPEEDTaking the Switch Infinity’s winning heritage and made the leverage ratio more progressive (but not too progressive) to provide greater compatability with modern shocks and a wider range of racer setups. In addition, the bike has better small bump compliance, ramps up quicker in the mid stroke, while still allowing for full travel and bottom-out control.Racers spend more time in the supportive part of the curve- when entering toothy sections or carrying corner speed, the SB150 offers something to push against for greater race stage velocities.ANTI SQUATthe engineers over at YETI have chosen a relatively flat and high anti-squat curve in the beginning and mid-section of travel where pedaling commonly occurs a.k.a. the pedaling zone. This creates an efficient pedaling platform through your entire pedaling zone, as opposed to one single point. After the pedaling zone, there is an inflection point where the Switch Infinity link moves down, dropping the anti-squat drastically. Riders are typically not pedaling in this zone, so chain forces have less of an effect on the suspensions performance. Decoupling of the chain forces allows the suspension to work more efficiently to absorb impacts making the feel of a YETI distinct.YETI SB150. PROGRESSIVE RACE DRIVEN GEOMETRYForward Bias Posture:Gives racers the room they need, and centers them on the bike.20mm Longer travel Fork: Pairs well with our forward-biased frame matching the vertical wheel travel of the rear suspension.Slacker Headtube: Lower bottom bracket, and longer wheelbase.Tested On DH Standards: High-impact strength, carbon lay-up tuned to go fast and tested to DH standards.CUSTOM SHOCK TUNEEach Yeti model has a custom shock tune that is developed in house. Each tune is specifically designed to work in conjunction with the leverage ratio and anti-squat performance properties the engineering team builds with each frame. The performance characteristics of the SB150 are built using qualitative data from our athletes, and quantitative data recorded from telemetry devices which allow us to derive a tune that both enhances mid-stroke and bottom-out control while maintaining its pedaling efficiency.BUILD HIGHLIGHTSFORK: FOX PERFORMANCE 38/170MMSHOCK: FOX PERFORMANCE FLOAT X2WHEELSET: HOPEREAR DERAILEUR: SHIMANO XTPLEASE NOTE THE SPECIFICATION ON THE IMAGES OF THIS BIKE MAY DIFFER SLIGHTLY FROM THE LISTED SPECIFICATION, PLEASE SEE TECHINCAL SPECIFICATION FOR ACCURATE INFORMATION.
