Yeti Cycles (United States) - Press Release: Meet the bike in between nothing. Leaving no rider wanting. Master of the climb, the bomb, the rail, and the air. The utterly unequivocal. The rule crusher. The trend buster. No rig can rule all, but this one can absolutely rule.
The mountain bike.
Trail Bike? Yes, and...
This is the mountain bike you reach for when the trail is untamed and unrelenting, in both directions. “Trail bike” is a term that gets used pretty liberally in the industry, so we designed the SB140 to be even better suited to go deep and find out what’s on the other side.
Switch infinity. Recalculated:
Discover the next-generation of translating pivot suspension designs. Setting new expectations for kinematics, longevity, sensitivity, and strength.
Internally routed cable tubes with secure closures at entry and exit points eliminate rattles and cable rub. Whether running a mechanical drivetrain and dropper or a wireless setup, cable management is intuitively easy and quiet.
Threaded aluminum bottom bracket shell with integrated ISCG-05 tabs. This critical drivetrain interface is now more durable, cleaner, and easier to service.
If a hanger bending crash occurs, the new Yeti models use the Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH) interface — the industry standard mount for a rear derailleur. The UDH is available in nearly any bike shop, Yeti dealer or not.
As the capability of our bikes continues to increase, so does their ability to run modern day, full-stroke dropper posts. Our seat tube is shorter to allow for a longer dropper posts. Most riders will be able to use a 150mm dropper posts on Small frames*, 175mm on Medium frames*and 200mm+ dropper posts on L-XXL frames* respectively.
*Dependent on actual seat height on specific bike size.
Refinded new look. Still distinctly Yeti:
The refined main frame and swingarm silhouette is more than just striking good looks – it’s an engineering approach that packages Switch Infinity and shock linkage in a tighter, more efficient frame with added impact clearance. Holistic frame chassis stiffness has increased, along with frame ground clearance.
Unparalleled feel. For all riders:
Every rider deserves a frame feel that’s tuned for them, regardless of frame size. Over the course of hundreds of virtual simulation comparisons and back-to-back carbon prototype testing, we’ve refined our carbon layups to deliver consistent torsional stiffness and flex profiles across all frame sizes. The feel is precise yet compliant while structurally balancing light weight and durability.
A smarter leverage rate:
Designed around a relatively linear progression curve, with slightly more progression at the end of the stroke for the added travel of the bike. SB140 Riders get great small bump sensitivity, an incredibly supportive mid stroke and a composed, bottomless feel. It’s a progression curve that’s delivers quality full travel capability, for mountain biking. Other bikes might have more progressive curves. The question is, what for?
More comfortable on massive days:
Rather than conjuring up a claim to rationalize the vanilla geometry that dominates other “mid-travel” bikes, we asked how the remarkable feel of the SB130 can become even more capable of tackling a wider range of terrain? The result is a size specific geometry that puts SB140 riders in a more balanced position for extra spicy trails in every direction.
