The rebel yell of the middle child. Fed a steady diet of super-tech climbs. The SB130 was built to crush the biggest terrain. No trail "too" anything. Point it up or down. Enter a last-minute enduro just for the eff of it. We say no one bike can rule all. But the SB130? One bike that rules.
Puts riders in a balanced position perfectly centered on the bike, ready to tackle the unknown.
Because our 130mm of rear suspension outperforms similarly stroked forks and pairs well with our more forward-biased position.
FRONT END DOESN'T WANDER CLIMBING
And stays composed when pointed downhill – the rider position remains neutral.
LOW SLUNG. LONG DROP.
Long-stroke dropper post capability throughout entire size range — for greater agility.
AT HOME WHEN YOU'RE NOT.
The deeper you go, the higher you climb, the later you brake, the more comfortable SB130 becomes. Bottom line, the term "trail bike" gets used pretty liberally at Yeti.
A straighter, more linear progression curve means it's easier to tune shocks to pair with the suspension kinematics, and we don't have to rely on damping circuits to compensate. Being able to manipulate the leverage rate without affecting the anti-squat characteristics is unique to our patented Switch Infinity suspension. What does this mean with 6k of vert behind you on the day? You'll have more left in the tank to grab another 6k of vert, up or down. That's the SB130's best trait.
Big mountain feel, capable, lively, with a centered rider position.
Across our line, we have chosen a relatively flat and high anti-squat curve in 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, 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.
