Product Info

The dream bike you'd dream about if you could convince yourself that lucid dreaming is real, the Yeti Cycles SB165 T2 X2 Complete Mountain Bike is truly unbelievable. The air-suspension version of the baddest 27.5" bike on the planet, this one turns scary lines fun and pro lines doable. In the grand scheme of things, the bicycle hasn't really changed too much in 100 years: two wheels, some handlebars, chain-driven. But this bike should be left out of that discussion. The SB165, especially in this build, is otherworldly.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

TURQ Series Carbon FrameTURQ Series bikes are made with the highest quality carbon fiber available and offer the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance. The result is a bike that feels smooth, solid and aggressive. Every bike is tested by the best racers in the world, including EWS World Champion Richie Rude, an in-house testing team and ambassadors around the world.

Fox X2 Factory Rear ShockThe award-winning, gravity-defying air shock is totally redesigned for 2021. With a laundry list of advanced features, the X2 is ready to clean house. This is the air shock that will help you say goodbye to coils.

Shock AdjustmentsAir Spring Pressure, 2-Position Open, Firm Lever, High Speed Compression (8 Clicks), Low Speed Compression (16 Clicks), High Speed Rebound (8 Clicks), Low Speed Rebound (16 Clicks)

VVC (Variable Valve Control)VVC is a proprietary variable valve control system that allows for external fine-tuning of suspension performance. VVC achieves with the twist of a knob what typically requires the time consuming and complicated task of completely disassembling and reassembling the fork.

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 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.

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.

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.

Fork

Fox 38 FactoryThe new pinnacle of single crown forks, this is a hard-hitting long travel enduro specialist. With new leg channels, pressure release valves, and the storied GRIP2 damper, this fork is very durable and highly tuneable. Stiffer, smoother, better.

Drive Train

SRAM X01 EagleThe X01 Eagle drivetrain signals an exciting new era of freedom and the next level of uncompromising performance for enduro racers and aggressive trail riders. X01 Eagle takes everything you love about SRAM's pioneering 1x drivetrains and increases its wear life, toughness, precision, smooth and silent operation. Add to that the carbon cranks and 10- to 52-tooth, 12-speed, Eagle cassette, and you have a range of gears that gives you the freedom to enjoy the benefit of 1x in any terrain, any location and at any speed. X01 Eagle is drivetrain freedom-how you exploit it is up to you.

Brakes

SRAM Code RSC BrakesetCode dominates the World Cup — and every downhill trail worth its salt. In the gravity world, this is the pinnacle of performance, power and control.From e-MTB to Enduro and every downhill in-between, Code is the standard for nuanced modulation and confident stopping power.

SRAM CenterLine RotorsThe CenterLine design provides a smooth, consistent, and quiet running braking surface.

Wheel Set

DT Swiss EX1700The best aluminium all mountain wheels. Period. That is what DT Swiss designed the EX1700 SPLINE wheels to be. Whether this is actually the case is up to you to decide. But they've given it everything needed to dominate the mountain. Light and robust welded rims, perfect tubeless compatibility for grip and puncture resistance as well as their reliable 350 hubs with Ratchet technology and a 36 tooth engagement. With a 30mm internal width, they're a perfect platform for aggressive enduro tires.

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.

Yeti Carbon BarsMade with the highest grade carbon and spec'd on all TURQ Series bikes. Each bar has cut indicators for fine tuning bar length.
