The 2023 Yeti SB165 is a high performance mountain bike, suitable for the expert rider looking for a downhill bike made of 100% carbon fibre.
This Yeti model stands out for:
- Leverage Rate (ratio between the force on the shock absorber - movement): the progression curve is 27.5%.
- Anti-squat system: its frame and Switch Infinity technology allow the Switch Infinity to be activated after the pedaling stage, moving downwards and achieving a unique riding sensation.
- 100% carbon fibre construction: The Yeti SB165 is made entirely of carbon fibre, achieving a perfect balance between stiffness and handling.
- Pivot clamp axle system: reduces bearing wear.
- Integrated head tube (41mm/52mm): allows for a larger head tube with more area, greater stiffness and lower ride height.
This mountain bike model features Yeti Cycles' patented Switch Infinity suspension system. This suspension system uses a translation pivot that automatically changes its position as the bike moves forward. In addition, the suspension of the Yeti SB165 features an anti-squat system, with a relatively flat and high curve in the initial and middle section during the ride, i.e. during the pedaling stage.
