Yeti SB5.5 T-Series XT

Overview

FORGET ANY PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS ABOUT 29ERS, THANKS TO AN IMPECCABLE FRAME DESIGN, SHORTENED CHAIN STAYS AND AGGRESSIVE SUSPENSION SPEC, THE SB5.5 IS EASY TO MANEUVER AND FEELS LIVELY AND QUICK ON THE 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.

BALANCED GEOMETRY, FROM OPTIMAL CHAINSTAY LENGTH TO PRECISE MECHANICAL TRAIL.

The SB5.5’s 17.2 inch chainstays aren’t super-short by today’s standards, but that’s exactly the point. Our testers wanted some torsional flex so the bike handled off-camber descents better. We were able to achieve this by right sizing our chainstays and optimizing the carbon layup to allow rear wheel to track on gnarly terrain. To balance the bike’s front end, we chose to use a long travel 51mm offset fork combined with a 66.5 degree head angle. This allowed us to precisely tune the bike’s mechanical trail and wheelbase.

FOR 2018, IN COLLABORATION WITH FOX, WE REFINED THE SHOCK AIR VOLUME CONFIGURATION AND TUNE.

The Float DPX2 for the SB5.5 has more consistent damping with a revised oil path. On the trail, you will feel more mid-stroke support and less overdamped feeling. Additionally, the new shock design allows for compression and rebound to be tuned more independently.

WE HAVE A PRETTY SIMPLE DESIGN PHILOSOPHY. WE BUILD BIKES WE WANT TO RIDE.
