Yeti cycles first came about in 1985 as Mountain bikes were first coming onto the scene and quickly becoming popular for their ability to take you anywhere you wanted. They have and continue to produce the highest end of Mountain bikes ensuring their bikes are of the finest quality, backed by their "no-nonsense" lifetime warranty, and feature the latest technologies being produced by their designers. The SB130 features Yeti's patented and renowned Switch Infinity technology which improves leverage ratio by 12.5% whilst also switching direction as the bike moves through its travel thanks to the design of the translating pivot made it partnership with Fox suspension systems. In English, this means the SB130 is supple through small bump compliance but ramps up quickly as the power goes in, whilst still allowing for full travel and bottom out control. Finally, the geometry custom to the SB130 features a slackened head angle and shorter seat stays for a longer reach and a more comfortable ride. At the TriStore, we deal with Shimano, SRAM and Rotor parts as well as 3T, Easton and Cervelo's own components with wheels manufacturers including Zipp, Hunt, Mavic and Specialized. The world, as they say, is your oyster.
Switch Infinity has proven itself on the trail, between the tape, and in the back rooms of editor's choice rooms. Yeti took that proven technology and refined the slope of the leverage ratio making it 12.5% more progressive without affecting the anti-squat properties. This means the bike has supple small bump compliance but ramps up quicker in the mid-stroke while still allowing for full travel and bottom out control.
Built to last
The SB130 is built to tackle any type of terrain. From buffed out singletrack to rugged EWS race courses, it can hold its own on a huck, if you are willing. It is built for a lifetime, but we gave you a warranty to match just for good measure.
Trail Inspired Geometry
The SB130 has progressive trail inspired geometry. We took what we learned from the SB5 and our Factory team riders and made it low, slack, and long. It is built to around shorter fork offsets, we slackened the "real" headangle and made the seatube angle way steeper. The reach is also longer with shorter chainstays. What does this all mean? All these elements increase the descending prowess and move the rider forward on the bike without affecting its uphill climbing ability.
The patent-pending wishbone shock extender was developed to maintain a linear path on the leverage ratio while making the curve 12.5% more progressive. This gave the Switch Infinity suspension more control in the mid-stoke while keeping the small bump supple. It also allows for more shock clearance and allows for ease of access for shock fitting and replacement.
