Product Info

Building off of the super capable SB5.5 chassis, the Yeti Cycles SB150 GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike further increases the travel to 150/170 and shifts the rear shock mount location thanks to a shock extender that maximizes standover height and improves kinematics, all while allowing for a potential water bottle. This monster bike is brought to life via its Fox DPX2 shock, Switch Infinity translating pivot, and plush Fox 36 up front. With a Fox Transfer dropper and a SRAM Eagle™ drivetrain, the SB150 harnesses the speed of big 29-inch wheels and brings them to life with superior long travel capability, all in a race proven package built for the most demanding riders.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

C/Series Carbon FramesetBy 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 250g per frame (1/2 pound). 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. The Switch Infinity suspension was tuned for anti-squat and leverage ratio properties that emphasize the downhill capabilities while finding a balance for it uphill pedaling efficiency. Making this an enduro race machine that slays the down and get you to the top without ramping up the heart rate too much.

Tuned for Enduro PerformanceSwitch Infinity has proven itself on the race course, amassing more EWS wins than any other system. Yeti took that winning heritage and made the leverage ratio more progressive (but not too progressive) to provide greater compatibility with modern shocks and various rider weights/styles. In addition, the bike has better small bump compliance, ramps up quicker in the mid-stroke for a playful supportive feel, while still allowing for full travel and bottom out control. Thanks to Switch Infinity, the anti-squat and pedaling efficiencies remain superb.

Progressive Geometry SB150 has progressive enduro inspired geometry. Yeti took what they learned from the SB6 and their Factory team riders and made it low, slack, and long. It is designed for shorter fork offsets - Yeti slackened the "real" head angle and made the seatube angle way steeper. The reach is also longer with shorter chainstays. What does this mean? All these elements increase the DH prowess and move the rider forward on the bike. But these advantages are not one sided. The steeper seat angle, short fork offset, and forward riding position also keeps the front wheel on the ground, the power to the pedals and the steering quick and nimble when climbing.

Fox Performance DPX2Combining the best of X2 and DPS, the DPX2 features a recirculating oil damper design with the convenience of three on-the-fly compression damping positions.

Shock ExtenderThe patent pending wishbone shock extender was developed to maintain a linear path on the leverage ratio while making the curve 12.5% more progressive. This gave the Switch Infinity suspension more control in the mid-stoke while keeping the small bump supple. It also allows for more shock clearance and allows for ease of access for shock fitting and replacement.

Lab Tested to DH StandardsThe SB150 is built Richie "F-ing" Rude tough. The frame meets Yeti DH testing standards, well beyond what others do for a 150mm trail bike. This thing will last for a lifetime, but Yeti provides a warranty to match just for good measure.

Custom Frame ProtectorsThe 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.

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.

New Water Bottle MountThe water bottle fits comfortably inside the front triangle, where you might be used to looking for it. It took considerable effort to accommodate a bottle, optimize stand-over and meet Yeti's kinematic expectations, but they knew it was important to you. So they finally did it.

Fork

Fox Performance 36Fox's Performance forks retain the same black anodized 7000 series aluminum upper tubes as Performance Elite, but have a different damper (FIT GRIP) with fewer adjustments.
