2018 Yeti SB5 T-Series SRAM X01
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.
SRAM Eagle meets Fox Factory Kashima coated suspension and DT Swiss boost wheelset, add on Switch Infinity suspension technology and you have the SB5 TURQ Series X01 Eagle. Updates this year with the Fox Transfer seat post and SRAM Guide RSC brakes. All combined with the lightest SRAM X01 crank arm available and Yeti’s carbon TURQ handlebar, the end product is a bike that rallies ups and downs with punishing determination.
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.
