The 2023 Yeti SB160 is a high performance mountain bike, designed for the advanced level rider looking for the best bike for Trail or Enduro riding. It features a 100% carbon fibre frame with 160mm of rear suspension travel.
This Yeti Cycles model stands out for:
- Leverage Rate (ratio between the force on the shock absorber - movement): the progression curve is relatively linear at 17%.
- Wishbone two-piece shock extender: Yeti's patented damping system. The forward position makes it possible to reduce the height of the support, thus reducing the size of the shock flanges.
- 100% carbon fibre construction: this Yeti model is made entirely of carbon fibre, which allows a perfect balance between stiffness and handling.
- Internally routed cable tubes, with locks at both the entry and exit points. Prevents tangling and cable chafing.
- Threaded BB: threaded bottom bracket shell with ISCG-05 flanges. Improves durability and makes cleaning and maintenance easier.
- Hager Universal Derailleur Interface (UDH): universal bracket for attaching the rear derailleur. Available at any specialized retailer.
The Yeti SB160 SB mountain bike includes the Switch Infinity suspension system, created and patented by Yeti. This innovative system features a curved rail and a variable flow suspension system. It provides the bike with increased suspension capability, pedaling efficiency and stability.
