2018 Yeti SB5 T-Series Shimano XT
The SB5 is perhaps Yeti’s most versatile all-mountain bike. Born on the trails of Colorado, this bike represents everything a trail bike should be – lightweight, nimble on climbs, and dominant on descents.
The SB5 TURQ Series XT matches Yeti’s best available carbon frame with Switch Infinity suspension technology and smooth Fox Factory Kashima metric suspension. Combine that with a Shimano XT drivetrain and brakes and DT Swiss boost wheelset and the outcome is an aggressive ride that remains flickable and agile.
Different-sized riders have different needs, so on the XS-S Yeti lowered the toptube creating even more standover for shorter riders. The M-XL use Yeti’s signature toptube configuration which has great clearance and classic lines.
Last year, when Yeti designed the SB5 with all-new geometry and design – they thought it looked a lot like the old chum we knew and loved. The reality was, the new tube configuration, updated geometry and integrated cable routing made a refined bike even better. They steepened the seat tube to optimize pedaling position, while the head tube got a bit slacker to make it even more capable on the downhill.
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, our in-house testing team and ambassadors around the world. Based on the feedback we receive, we fine tune every bike down to the most minute component to perform best for the environment it was intended.
