2018 Yeti SB6 T-Series Shimano XT
Piloted by the best riders in the world, the SB6 is uniquely suited for pounding out big enduro race days and taking on big terrain. The SB6 has 6 inces of travel in the rear, with 160 mm up-front and geometry that is manageable on the transfers, but optimized for smashing downhills.
The Shimano XT brakes and drivetrain continue to take a prominent place in Yeti’s product line. Why? Simply put, the increased gear range (11-46T) and XT quality make it a no-brainer. All TURQ Series XT bikes come stock with FOX Factory suspension, Race Face Turbine crankset/stem, Fox Transfer dropper post, and DT Wheels (350 hubs/XM481 rims). Solid spec. Shimano quality.
The SB6 is tested under heightened frame requirements to withstand more abuse. What does this mean? It is tested to stiffness and impact levels of downhill bike standards. Along with the testing in the lab, the SB6 has been ridden to victory on the toughest Enduro race courses in the world. This thing is Richie Rude frigging approved.
TURQ 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, Yeti’s in-house testing team and ambassadors around the world. Based on the feedback they receive, Yeti fine tunes every bike down to the most minute component to perform best for the environment it was intended.
“This is the perfect Tahoe bike. Crazy light, agile, climbs like a goat, and just gets better the more you throw at it. Redefining bikes in the long, low and slack category.” – Ryan Fowler
