Yes, the ASR short-travel of yesteryear has been replaced by a bike Yeti has been wanting to put into production for years. A bike that is as good at crushing tight, technical descents as it is at getting up heart-raising climbs, the SB115 blurs the lines between XC and Trail riding. TURQ-Series carbon fibre is Yeti's highest quality of modulus, ensuring stiffness that lets rip when the power goes in and durability that is backed by a no-hassle lifetime warranty. The SB115 however, comes into its own with a patented rear suspension system called Switch Infinity. As the bike moves through its travel, Switch Infinity is able to change direction providing a "bottomless feel" which no other suspension system is able to match. Finally, in the T2 edition of the SB115, SRAM's X01 Eagle groupset offers the smoothest possible one-by shifting with hydraulics that are able to cope with wet, mucky and slippy terrain. So get ready to re-imagine the possibilities of a bike that re-defines riding on any type of trail.
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.
