Yeti Cycles launched the New SB100 MTB Bike

Yeti Cycles launched the New SB100 MTB Bike
Yeti Cycles (USA) – Press Release: This is what we can do with short travel and our newly configured switch infinity. It transcends the weight-weenie, uphill only models and replaces it with a precision riding bike. If some people assume it's a downhiller's XC bike, whatever… Call it what you want. For us, it's simply the bike we always wanted to build. The SB100.

We redesigned the switch infinity specifically for 100mm of travel - It's lighter and tucks neatly behind the seattube. There is no performance compromise with the compact switch mechanism. It utilizes the same proven fox racing bushing, seals, and kashima stanchions.

The Switch Infinity is a simple, lightweight, bombproof system built by Fox Racing Shox from proven suspension components and engineered and tested to withstand the worst riding conditions. We only use the best components in its construction — Kashima coated stanchions for low friction and durability, seals and bushings that are used in Fox’s off-road racing division, and a lightweight forged translating pivot. We have field tested the parts for over three years and the original bushings, seals, and stanchions are still in perfect working condition.

Mechanical Superiority:
The linear path of the patented Switch Infinity system has very little resistance as it moves through its travel. This allows the system to achieve seemingly contradictory characteristics. In the early stage of the travel, it displays superior pedaling efficiency and excellent small bump sensitivity. As you move deeper into the travel, the suspension is well supported and responds effortlessly to square edge hits. The mechanical advantage of our linear system cannot be achieved with traditional link designs.

Switch Infinity is a versatile system easily adaptable to different travel platforms. The system can be mounted in any orientation and can achieve a myriad of kinematics depending on the design intent. For example, longer travel bikes require drastically different kinematics later in the travel (controlling wheel path trajectory). The Switch Infinity system can control this much more precisely than other suspension designs because of the linear path of the main pivot. We also can control leverage ratio and anti-squat with much greater freedom than other systems.

Clean lines allow space for an interior water bottle mount and longer seatpost droppers:

The new Switch Infinity design allows space for an uninterrupted seattube, accommodating longer dropper seatposts and a water bottle mount in the front triangle.

Instead of chasing weight on the build, we spec'd the bike as we tested it:

Instead of chasing featherweight on the build, we spec'd the bike as we tested it - Fox Transfer post, Maxxis 2.3 tires, and 180mm front rotor. It's still light, but also right. Our pro rider, Geoff Kabush, will be defending his BC Bike Race title on this rig.

Two distinct carbon fiber frame builds offer a balance between weight and performance:

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. CARBON Series have small changes in the carbon fiber allowing for a more aggressively priced high-performance frame while maintaining similar strength and stiffness of its higher-end sibling.

  • Clearance For Water Bottle Inside Mainframe
  • Uninterrupted Seattube For Use With Long Travel Droppers

SB100 SRAM XX1 Eagle specifications:
The SB100 TURQ Series XX1 Eagle takes the best available technologies and combines it in one bike. Like all the other SB100 models we made sure this trail bike was ready to rip with beefy Maxxis tires and SRAM's new carbon DUB crankset system. The new Fox Step-Cast 34 120mm XC fork and SRAM XX1 drivetrain, ensure this bike feels smooth as butter on the chunkiest of tracks. SRAM Level Ultimate brakes are lightest in class, with 180mm front and 160mm rear rotors ensure you have the braking power to get in deep. DT Swiss XRC 1200 carbon-wheel upgrade available.
