Yeti launches new trail bike, the SB5c

Published July 17, 2014

GOLDEN, Colo. (BRAIN) — Yeti's new SB5c trail bike has the company's new Switch Infinity suspension technology, which the Colorado company developed with Fox. The new bike has 27.5-inch wheels and five inches of rear travel. Complete bikes start at $6,599.

The patented Switch Infinity design was intended to maximize pedaling efficiency and small bump sensitivity when climbing while providing plush, controlled travel when descending.

“Yeti has always been ride-driven brand, and the new Switch Infinity technology has been in development and testing for nearly three years,” said Yeti president and co-owner Chris Conroy. “We worked closely with Fox to apply what we’ve learned from our linear rail and Switch Technologies to produce a suspension platform that will work across a wide spectrum of terrain, disciplines, and riding styles.”

The SB5c is available to ship immediately as a complete bike with SRAM’s X01 build kit with an MSRP of $6,599, or $8,999 with an Enve M60 wheelset. Complete SB5c’s will weigh 25.5lbs with a Thomson Elite seatpost, and 26.2lbs with a Thomson Elite Dropper seatpost. It will also be available with a SRAM XX1 build kit with an Enve M60 wheelset for $10,599.
