GRAVITY TESTED

The SB165 is built tough. The frame meets Yeti DH testing standards, well beyond what others do for a 165mm trail bike. This thing will last for a lifetime, but we gave you a warranty to match just for good measure.

SB165 Detail
LET’ER EAT

Chair lift, Shuttle truck or self-shuttle. The SB165 doesn’t discriminate. If you choose to earn your turns, it’s no slouch.

ANTI-SQUAT

Across our line, we have chosen a relatively flat and high anti-squat curve in the beginning and mid-section of travel where pedaling commonly occurs a.k.a. the pedaling zone. This creates an efficient pedaling platform through your entire pedaling zone, as opposed to one single point. After the pedaling zone, there is an inflection point where the Switch Infinity link moves down, dropping the anti-squat drastically. Riders are typically not pedaling in this zone, so chain forces have less of an effect on the suspension performance. Decoupling of the chain forces allows the suspension to work more efficiently to absorb impacts making the feel of a Yeti distinct

When seeking to find the outer limits of personal performance, it would be a shame to reach the limit of your bike first.

DEPENDS ON
THE PRACTITIONER.

The SB165 takes our forward bias posture and approach to geometry and unlocks new-school advantages, tweaked to bring out the absolute best in 27.5” wheels. Yes, the steeper seat tube angle and shorter fork offset paired with Switch Infinity’s pedalabilty offers a refreshingly easy climb. Yes, the slacker headtube angle, longer reach and lower bottom bracket are strikingly similar to that of a DH bike. Yes, the “little wheels” are capable of the hell you can handle. Just ask Reed.

Slacker than Most DH Bikes

The SB165 loves the steeps.

Steep Where it Counts

A steeper seat tube angle means pedaling back up isn’t a slog.
