Product Info

Built on a high modulus carbon fiber frame with a cream of the crop 1x12 SRAM X01 Eagle™ drivetrain and powerful Guide RSC brakes, the Yeti Cycles SB5.5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike is a dream bike for the long travel 29er crowd. Capable of dominating any trail you put in its path, this new-wave 29er not only has incredible stability and rollover, but it's also freakishly nimble and aggressively slated for punchy descents. While the 29ers of yesterday only occupied the long-pedaling XC space, this Yeti Cycles SB5.5 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike is truly a top-of-the-line rig that you can confidently take to any trailhead!

Product Details


TURQ Carbon FramesetTURQ Series bikes are manufactured with the highest quality and best-performing carbon fiber available and offer the perfect balance of stiffness, durability, and compliance. The result is a bike that feels smooth, solid and aggressive.

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 Factory DPX2 ShockCombining DPS XC efficiency and X2 DH performance, the DPX2 is the ultimate trail shock. The Dual Piston Base Valve has dedicated compression and lockout circuits for each of the three modes—Open, Medium, and Firm. It also features a recirculating damper design found in X2 shocks, creating excellent small bump sensitivity, great mid-stroke damping support, and better control in transitions.

Drive Train

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 X01 Eagle™ ShifterTucked neatly beneath your handlebars, the X01 Eagle™ X-ACTUATION™ trigger shifter is the nerve center of the Eagle™ drivetrain. Its internal works have been updated to include a 12th gear, and improved to enhance trigger feel, precision and durability. Whether you’re 4 stages into the race or days away from civilization, the X01 Eagle™ trigger shifter is your faithful 1x touch point.

SRAM X01 Carbon Eagle™ CranksetSRAM knows you have a lot of choices when choosing a crankset, and your choice says a lot about your personal style. They designed the new X01 Eagle™ crankset for riders who feel most stylish when they stand on top of the podium. This is a completely reengineered design, employing a proprietary CARBON TUNED™ lay-up technology. Built tough, to handle aggressive lines through rock gardens and big hits wherever you find them. The new X01 Eagle™ is SRAM's best, toughest and most aggressive Trail and Enduro crankset thanks to SRAM DUB™ technology, which features a better-engineered bottom bracket and a new spindle design. Together, these allow for a more uniform approach to bottom bracket fitment, better sealing against contamination—and define a new measure of durability. If you’re into that kind of thing.

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 RSC Hydraulic Disc BrakesThe new SRAM Guide RSC is packed with ride-enhancing performance that makes every new trail a trusted old friend. SRAM started from scratch to create the perfect combination of braking reliability and control. Brand new SwingLink™ technology provides more power, silky-smooth modulation, less deadband and better lever feel than you've ever experienced. Steep-line confidence. Deep-corner dominance. Ride every trail like you own it. Know you can. 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 350 HubsWhoever is looking for the most affordable high performance hubs available, should take a very close look at the 350 hub line-up. The same performance as its even higher end cousins comes with slightly less weight optimized parts to offer the same reliability at a much lower cost. Being available in all standards and for any application, the 350 hub is for those who maybe like to ride the trails a little more than drooling over catalogs and specs.

DT Swiss XM 481 RimsRiders who like the idea of giving their tires some extra volume and support will find the ideal partner with the XM 481. Its full 30 mm of inner width together with a minimal hook and perfect tubeless compatibility make it ready to tackle all demanding trails, both up and down the mountain.

Maxxis Minion Front TireThe Minion DHF was designed for the often loose and muddy conditions of aggressive all-mountain terrain. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight-line control and precise cornering.

Maxxis Aggressor Rear TireThe Aggressor is designed for high-speed modern mountain bike trails. Advanced knob shaping creates extra gripping edges, and reinforced side knobs offer enhanced stability when cornering at speed. An all-around trail tire excelling on everything from loose cross country race courses to heavy all-mountain riding.
