Product Info

With the latest 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle™ drivetrain, the Yeti Cycles SB5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike enables you to soar up hills and nimbly navigate back down with precision. Arguably the most versatile all-mountain bike in the Yeti stable, the SB5 was born on the trails of Colorado and represents everything a versatile trail bike should be. A carbon fiber frameset is both stiff and lightweight, while the tuneable Fox Performance suspension keeps things smooth yet lively. If you're looking for a pedal pony that'll excel on long, flowy singletrack, sporty descents, and everything in between, the Yeti Cycles SB5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike is a steed worth staring at.

Product Details


Carbon Fiber Frame & Swing ArmBy utilizing a less high modulus carbon than they do in their TURQ Series bikes, the Carbon Series maintains Yeti's award winning ride quality and technology standards, the only sacrifice being minor weight gains.

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 as the pivot translates upward. As the system reaches the inflection point, the main pivot translates downward. The result is ideal suspension characteristics deeper into travel, creating a controlled and bottomless suspension feel.

Fox Performance DPS ShockFox's highest performing inline shock. FLOAT DPS shocks have fewer adjustments than Factory Series (no Open mode adjust tuning range), and have a black anodized air sleeve and body instead of Genuine Kashima Coat. A Performance graphics package ties in the black-on-black look.

Shock Adjustments3-Position Lever (Open, Medium, Firm) | Rebound Adjust | Air Spring Pressure Adjust

Internal Cable RoutingInternally molded carbon tubes inside of the frame for hassle-free cable routing.

Collet Axle SystemLocated on the pivots to reduce bearing wear.

Boost Hub Spacing Front and Rear

Integrated ISCG-05 Mounts

Tapered Inset Headtube

Custom Down Tube Protector & Chain Guards

Fox 34 Performance ForkFox'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.

Drive Train

SRAM GX Eagle™ ShiftersThe challenges of riding a mountain bike should be kept to roots, rocks, mud, trees, jumps, drops and breathing. Putting total control of your gear selection into the thumb of one hand, it's simple to find the right gear, right now. The GX Eagle™ trigger shifter is the control center of the Eagle™ drivetrain. It's internal works have been updated to include a 12th gear, and improved to enhance trigger feel, precision and durability.

SRAM GX Eagle™ CranksetThe SRAM GX Eagle™ crankset delivers consistent performance every time out. Featuring SRAM's X-SYNC™2 tooth profile chainring, the GX crankset is engineered for complete control. Each tooth's thickness is precisely toleranced and controlled to work seamlessly with the chain's inner and outer links.

SRAM X01 Eagle™ Rear DerailleurThis new derailleur not only answers the Eagle™ drivetrain's need for greater capacity, but it's also the next evolution of SRAM's proven, 1x-specific X-HORIZON™ design. The larger, 14-tooth X-SYNC™ lower pulley allows 10- to 50-tooth cassette capacity in this relatively compact design, and also adds to Eagle's overall smooth-pedaling feel. SRAM's new Type-3 ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™ features a smoother torque curve for a quieter, more consistent operation and feel. CAGE LOCK™ has been moved back and out of the way, protecting it from trail debris. And a redesigned, robust mounting system further improves the Eagle™ derailleur's performance and overall durability.

SRAM XG-1275 Eagle™ 10-50T CassetteRide anywhere with this wide range XG-1275, 10- to 50-tooth Eagle™ cassette that provides the right gear. Fast on the flats. Control on the climbs. Dictate your own pace, anywhere. Only Eagle™ technology is the 1x drivetrain engineered for infinite freedom. FULL PIN™ technology uses lightweight, stamped steel cogs held together with high-strength stainless steel pins. The result: a cassette that’s light and strong. The open design similar to SRAM's X-DOME™ cassette aids in mud clearance, giving you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life. New X-GLIDE™2 improves both inboard and outboard shifting, as well as chain retention.

SRAM GX Eagle™ ChainThe GX Eagle™ chain is designed with SRAM’s Eagle™ geometry, the GX Eagle™ chain features solid pin construction, Eagle™ PowerLock® and smooth, efficient shifting that you can count on every time out.


SRAM Guide R Hydraulic Disc BrakesWhat’s it going to take to ride that line? It’s steep. It’s rocky. You’ve passed it a hundred times. But not this time. With the all-new SRAM Guide R, you have the power. Proven 4-piston calipers give you smooth, one-finger control. Features like Reach Adjust let you dial it in just right. And Guide perfectly complements other SRAM components and gives you flawless performance on every ride. Now featuring the World Championship-winning S4 caliper with Bleeding Edge™ and Heat Shield technologies.

SRAM Centerline RotorsThe new Centerline Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.

Wheel Set

DT Swiss M1900 WheelsetDon't get fooled by the understated appearance: The M1900 Spline® mean business on the mountain. All DT Swiss' hub know-how is built into the high-end machined hubs of the M1900 Spline wheels. Forces from and to the hubs are transmitted via their trademark quality straight pull spokes, and the rims are light and strong to keep up with what's possible with a tubeless setup and today's capable all-mountain tires.

Maxxis Ardent TiresAn aggressive tread in high-volume casing, designed with great traction in mind. The Ardent doesn't forget the racer with large block-style side knobs offering numerous edges for high-speed corning. The center tread, while ideal for braking and accelerating traction, also features ramped knobs to minimize rolling resistance.

Additional Features

Fox Transfer Dropper PostThe Transfer seatpost features an infinitely adjustable design with the choice of internal or external cable routing. Low lever force and great modulation make it easy to regulate return speed and small height adjustments.
