Inspired by the ASR of yesteryear, Yeti's SB115 takes an all-out XC frame and shifts its momentum to the trail for a truly unique ride. Built from the highest quality of carbon Yeti has to offer, TURQ-Series takes the combination of stiffness and compliance to a whole new level whilst remaining super lightweight for the most competitive ride. The genius behind the design of the SB115 is centred around the Switch Infinity suspension system that has the ability to change direction as the bike moves through its travel. The result? A bottomless feel, that never fails to provide a smooth pedal stroke for the highest possible efficiency. Yeti has also re-engineered the system into a more compact fit, still offering the same level of performance, but making more space for a full-sized water bottle cage into the front triangle. Finally, components such as the Fox Factory DPS 130mm fork, Yeti's very own carbon handlebar and Shimano's XT groupset ensures you'll feel like a pro whether you're riding 'round your local beaten track or your country's national championships.
Switch Infinity Suspension System
Switch Infinity utilises a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel. This provides a tailored anti-squat curve while allowing the leverage ratio to be tuned independently, something other systems can’t physically achieve.
TURQ-Series Carbon Fibre
TURQ Series bikes are made with the highest quality carbon fibre available and offer the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance. The result is a bike that feels smooth, solid and aggressive. Every bike is tested by the best racers in the world, including EWS World Champion Richie Rude, Yeti's in-house testing team and ambassadors around the world.
Not just a pretty Bike
The new Switch Infinity design and placement are not only visually pleasing creating classic frame lines, but the uninterrupted seat tube also allows space for longer dropper seat posts.
The Process behind Genius
Ideas and direction stem from many sources as Yeti's product team is diverse and includes engineers, mechanics, fabricators, test riders, and racers. Since they are all riders, they approach the design from a rider’s perspective. When it came time to develop Yeti's first short-travel bike to utilise the Switch Infinity suspension, the collective sum of their ideas shaped what became the SB115 concept. It all started with a paper napkin sketch but evolved into a genre killing Trail / XC bike.
