Product Info

After a certain point, it's all about adjustments. The Yeti Cycles SB160 C1 Complete Mountain Bike may be a new model, but it's the result of years and years of fine-tuning by Yeti. This is an enduro race bike through and through, as close to that elusive "DH bike that pedals" as you're likely to find anywhere. Yeti's dropped the 165's travel slightly, but reworked the leverage curves to give this one a very predictable and balanced ride, making it even faster than is reasonable. They've buttoned up the construction and build, too, adding a threaded BB and Universal Derailleur Hanger for ease of maintenance. In the hands of the right pilot, there's not a more capable big bike on the planet.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

C/Series Carbon FrameOver the course of hundreds of virtual simulation comparisons and back-to-back carbon prototype testing, Yeti has refined their carbon layups to deliver consistent torsional stiffness and flex profiles across all frame sizes. The feel is precise yet compliant while structurally balancing light weight and durability.

Switch Infinity SuspensionThe new line of Yeti Switch Infinity bikes builds on their award-winning performance with subtle refined leverage rates that have been adjusted for the added travel of each new bike. This balanced approach to leverage rate results in an incredibly predictable ride.

Fox Float X Performance Rear ShockDesigned specifically to meet the demands of aggressive trail riders, the new Float X combines sophisticated damping and fade free performance with incredible light weight and outstanding structural integrity.

Internal Cable Routing with Secure Frame PortsThis 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.

Universal Derailleur HangerIf a hanger-bending crash occurs, the new Yeti models use the Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH) interface -- the industry standard mount for a rear derailleur. The UDH is available in nearly any bike shop, Yeti dealer or not.

New Pivot DesignsYeti's new pivot designs use 100% standard sized cartridge bearings secured with precision -- machined floating collet axles. All bearings are pressed into the linkage assembly vs. the swingarm or front triangle. The end result is perfect alignment and smooth suspension motion every time, boosting longevity.

Refined New School GeometryFrom size-specific seat tube angles and chain stay lengths, to new reach numbers that keep both wheels weighted, Yeti's concentrated on making a more balanced ride. Yeti engineers and designers mined the depths of every millimeter to create a nuanced set of refinements that deliver another leap forward in how well a mountain bike can ride.

Better Shock TuningYeti has been tuning shocks in-house to ensure their kinematics pair seamlessly with their shocks. Using data acquisition and their shock dyno they are able to correlate hours of ride testing, splitting hairs over tenths of millimeters, to deliver the most out of their suspensions. The final tune is the result of countless hours of ride and lab testing with multiple, ground-up shock tunes going into the decision.

Patented Compact Wishbone and Ultra Compact Suspension LinkThe goal is simple: optimizing leverage rates while pushing the shock forward in the frame. This forward positioning allows for a large range of shock compatibility, decreases standover height, reduces shock tab sizes, increases water bottle compatibility, and increases downtube clearance.

Frame ProtectionAn external hard cap provides impact resistance over a rubber under-guard that provides cushion against the frame.

Full DropYeti's seat tubes are shorter to allow for longer dropper posts.

Fork

Fox 38 PerformanceWhen you need to go really big, reach for the 38. Optimized for 160-180mm of travel and packing the same revolutionary feature set as the 36, the 38 redefines what you think a long travel single crown fork is capable of, and sets a new benchmark for confidence, performance, and durability. Welcome to the big time.

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 XT 8120 4-PistonThe 4-piston Shimano XT hydraulic disc brake ups the stopping power by 10% over the M8000, 2-piston version making it perfect for aggressive trail riding.

Shimano 220 / 200mm Ice Tech Rotors

Wheelset

DT Swiss E1900 Spline | 30mmYour entire focus lies on the right line choice, the exact braking point and the spot-on steering movement. All the everyday stress fades away, you feel free and only hear the precise sound of the freehub system. The E 1900 Spline was developed precisely for these freewheeling moments. A proven aluminum rim, a Ratchet LN freehub system and hand-laced steel spokes provide the reliability required from an Enduro wheel.
