£5134.35 – Yeti SB150 T1 Shimano XT 12 Spd 29er Mountain Bike 2022 Custom Raw Carbon/Invisiframe Wrap
Racing is the sole reason Yeti exists. 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.Please Note: This model features a custom invisiFRAME wrap. Enquire for more details.AN INFLECTION POINT FOR SPEEDTaking the Switch Infinity’s winning heritage and making the leverage ratio more progressive (but not too progressive) to provide greater compatibility with modern shocks and a wider range of racer setups. In addition, the bike has better small bump compliance, and 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 pedalling commonly occurs a.k.a. the pedalling zone. This creates an efficient pedalling platform through your entire pedalling zone, as opposed to one single point. After the pedalling zone, there is an inflection point where the Switch Infinity link moves down, dropping the anti-squat drastically. Riders are typically not pedalling in this zone, so chain forces have less of an effect on the suspension’s 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 centres 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 HIGHLIGHTSFRAME: Turq Series Carbon Fibre Frame, Switch Infintiy Suspension Technology, Pressfit BB92, Fully Enclosed Internal Cable Routing. 148mm x12mm Boost Dropouts, Sealed Enduro Max Pivot Bearings, Integrated Derailleur Hanger and Axle.SHOCK: FOX Factory X2.SUSPENSION: FOX Factory GRIP2 , 170mm Travel.GROUPSET: Shimano XT 12 Speed.BRAKES: Shimano XT 4 Piston.WHEELSET: HOPE FORTUS 30, PRO 4 HUBS (SUBJECT TO CHANGE)PLEASE NOTE: The images for this bike are displayed with Dt Swiss wheels but the bikes will be supplied with Hope Fortus 30 Wheels
