2018 Yeti SB5.5 Carbon SRAM GX Eagle

$5,399.00

Forget any preconceived notions about 29ers. Thanks to an impeccable frame design, shortened chain stays and aggressive suspension spec, the SB5.5 is easy to maneuver and feels lively and quick on the descents.

Outfitted with the most sought-after drivetrain in the industry, the SB5.5 Carbon GX Eagle is ready to take flight on your local trails and bike parks. Yeti rounded out the SRAM-centered bike spec with Fox Performance suspension and Transfer seat post, the aggressive Maxxis Minion DHF and Aggressor tires, and SRAM Guide R brakes with monster 180mm rotors. The final touch is a burly Race Face stem and bar combo.

The SB5.5’s 17.2 inch chainstays aren’t super-short by today’s standards, but that’s exactly the point. Yeti’s testers wanted some torsional flex so the bike handled off-camber descents better. They were able to achieve this by right sizing the chainstays and optimizing the carbon layup to allow rear wheel to track on gnarly terrain. To balance the bike’s front end, Yeti chose to use a long travel 51mm offset fork combined with a 66.5 degree head angle. This allows us to precisely tune the bike’s mechanical trail and wheelbase.

By making small changes in the carbon fiber layup of our TURQ Series bikes, we are able to make a more aggressively priced carbon high-performance mountain bike while maintaining strength and stiffness of its higher end sibling. The carbon fiber weighs a bit more, about 250 g for a frame. You’ll see that every bike model is now offered in carbon with high-end components.
