Quit listening to the naysayers, the excuse-makers, and the blamers, Yeti advised they go shop elsewhere. Every single detail of the SB150 was engineered in the name of performance, the kind that tops Enduro World Series podiums again and again. However, some will still say it's too low, long, or "different". Yeti like different and its geometry plays an integral part in why this bike has been so successful in the past. At the heart of the SB150 is Yeti's very own Switch Infinity system which offers superior pedalling and suspension performance thanks to a translating pivot which changes direction through the bikes' travel. Completed with Shimano's SLX groupset, Fox Performance X2 fork, and DT Swiss' E1900 wheelset, you can be sure this bike will bring the speed when you need it. Finally, Yeti wanted to ensure that the included Lifetime Warranty really meant a lifetime which is why they have tested this bike on the most aggressive and challenging courses.
At the heart of the SB150 suspension design is Yeti's patented Switch Infinity suspension system. Switch Infinity utilizes a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel. This provides excellent anti-squat characteristics for superior pedaling performance and ideal suspension characteristics as it gets deeper into the travel.
Built for a Lifetime
The SB150 is built Richie "F-ing" Rude tough. The frame meets Yeti DH testing standards, well beyond what others do for a 150mm trail bike. This thing will last for a lifetime, but Yeti gave you a warranty to match just for good measure.
The patent-pending wishbone shock extension was developed to maximize standover, maintain kinematics, fit a water bottle in the frame, and allow easy access when replacing or servicing the shock. Yeti also developed a shock extender that’s certified by FOX to accept a coil shock.
