Product Info

The Yeti Cycles SB165 C1 Complete Mountain Bike is just as beefy as its more expensive stablemates, just as dependable as the higher end models, it just doesn't have as many fancy bits hanging from it. Maybe that'll make you charge a bit harder, with less financial impact on the line -- who knows? This Shimano SLX build won't shy away from the heavy duty moves that this bike was made for, that's for sure. The modern freeride bike is alive and well, and it's called the SB165.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

C/Series Carbon FrameBy making small changes in the carbon fiber layup of their TURQ Series bikes, Yeti was able to create a more aggressively priced carbon high-performance mountain bike. C-Series frames maintain the strength and stiffness of the TURQ Series. The carbon fiber in C-Series weighs a bit more, about 190g per frame. Every bike model is offered in at least one C-Series option with high-end components.

Switch Infinity SuspensionSwitch Infinity utilizes a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel. This provides excellent anti-squat characteristics for superior pedaling performance and ideal suspension characteristics as it gets deeper into the travel.

Fox DHX2 Performance Elite Rear ShockFeaturing an entirely new chassis and damper, delivering enhanced tunability, smoother performance, and more progressivity than ever before.

Shock AdjustmentsCoil Spring Preload, 2 Position Open, Firm Lever, Low Speed Compression (16 Clicks), Low Speed Rebound (16 Clicks)

Internal Cable RoutingThis may seem like a small thing, but having a clean aesthetic on the frame along with internally molded carbon tubes inside for hassle-free cable routing is key. It makes for a quiet ride and ease of maintenance. For Yeti, building a great frame is all about the details.

Integrated Axle and HangerThe integrated axle and derailleur hanger system is built for simplicity and strength. Utilizing a left-hand thread to secure the hanger allows Yeti to incorporate the same machine piece for the axle retention. A clever little system the engineers spent many hours on that might get overlooked.

Integrated Frame ProtectionThe frame protectors for the down tube and chainstay are custom molded to match the frame. This guarantees a proper fit and adhesion to the frame for years of protection without the need for replacement or additional adhesives.

Sealed Enduro Max Bearing Pivots

Bottle Cage MountWithin the front triangle, fits piggyback shocks.

Fork

Fox 38 PerformancePacking the same revolutionary feature set as the legendary 36, the new 38mm stanchion redefines what's possible with a single crown fork. Smoother, stiffer, and ready for the big time, this fork has 180mm of customizable travel.

Fork AdjustmentsFIT GRIP 3-Position Lever (Open, Medium, Firm), Rebound Adjust, Air Spring Pressure

Drive Train

Shimano SLXSLX is ready to go wherever and whenever you want, whether it’s an all-day epic, the local cross country race, or a post-work ride with your buddies. It won’t let you down.

Brakes

Shimano Deore 4-PistonTrickle down tech is real, as evidenced by this excellent 4-piston brakeset. With different-sized pistons to fight wobble and noise from the rotor, the fantastic Servowave lever design, and easy setup and serviceability, these are solid stoppers.

203mm Shimano Rotors

Wheelset

DT Swiss E1900 WheelsetWith a 370 3-pawl hub, strong and lightweight 30mm wide aluminum rims, and DT Champion straightpull spokes, these wheels mean business. These will have you flying up and down with confidence and speed.

Maxxis Assegai Front TireThe Maxxis Assegai tire is named after the iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people of South Africa. Greg Minnaar, a native of South Africa, thought it was a fitting name for a tire ready to do battle on the mountain. The tall knobs punch through dust and loam to find traction, but also offer support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. While other tires excel only in certain conditions, the new Maxxis Assegai is built to go fast everywhere.

Maxxis Minion DHR II Rear TireWith side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF, but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped leading edges to improve acceleration and sipes to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control.

Additional Features

Fox Transfer Dropper SeatpostThe latest Transfer keeps its smooth action and low-height stack design, but shaves 25g and updates its internals for even easier serviceability.
