Yeti SB5.5 C-Series SLX/XT

Overview

The SB5.5 is Yeti’s 29 inch enduro race bike, designed to go from point a to point b as quickly as possible. 29er’s have become the go-to wheel size for many enduro bike racers, given the characteristic of the larger wheel to roll over terrain without losing momentum. The knock on early 29ers was that they suffered in agility when compared to smaller wheeled bikes. Yeti has tackled this issue with the SB5.5 by designing a bike that captures the raw speed of the larger wheel without sacrificing a lively and quick feel on the descents. This is due to maintaining short chainstays, a slack, but not extreme, head angle and an aggressive suspension tune up. Combining this with the larger, easy rolling wheels makes this a versatile bike fit for Blue Mountain excursions or all-day rides. The lightweight and stiff carbon frameset with the highly praised switch infinity rear system, provides both great pedaling performance and supple control through all 5.5 inches of travel. This Yeti is a fine-tuned, speed demon.

This build comes with the Carbon level frame which, by utilizing different carbon fiber, adds a couple hundred grams but maintains the stiffness and performance of the Turq level frame. It is also equipped with a value oriented proven performer Shimano drivetrain utilizing SLX and XT components.
