THE SB5 IS PERHAPS OUR MOST VERSATILE ALL-MOUNTAIN BIKE. BORN ON THE TRAILS OF COLORADO, THIS BIKE REPRESENTS EVERYTHING A TRAIL BIKE SHOULD BE — LIGHTWEIGHT, NIMBLE ON CLIMBS AND DOMINANT ON DESCENTS.
TWO DISTINCT CARBON FIBER FRAME BUILDS OFFER A BALANCE BETWEEN WEIGHT AND PERFORMANCE.
TURQ Series bikes are made with the highest quality carbon fiber available and offer the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance. The result is a bike that feels smooth, solid and aggressive. CARBON series have small changes in the carbon fiber allowing for a more aggressively priced high-performance frame while maintaining strength and stiffness of its higher end sibling.
DIFFERENT SIZED RIDERS HAVE DIFFERENT NEEDS, SO ON THE XS-SM WE LOWERED THE TOPTUBE CREATING EVEN MORE STANDOVER FOR SHORTER RIDERS. THE MD-XL USE OUR SIGNATURE TOPTUBE CONFIGURATION WHICH HAS GREAT CLEARANCE AND CLASSIC LINES.
A REFINED BIKE EVEN BETTER WITH A NEW TUBE CONFIGURATION AND UPDATED GEOMETRY.
Last year, when we designed the SB5 with all-new geometry and design – we all thought it looked a lot like the old chum we knew and loved. The reality was, the new tube configuration, updated geometry and integrated cable routing made a refined bike even better. We steepened the seat tube to optimize pedaling position, while the head tube got a bit slacker to make it even more capable on the downhill.
ALWAYS IMPROVING, WE RETOOLED THE METRIC SHOCK PLATFORM.
Working with FOX we retooled the SB5’s shock with an exclusive air volume configuration and tune. This resulted in better mid-stroke compression and small bump sensitivity providing a wider range of riders with a custom feel.
