165MM FRAME TRAVEL | 27.5" WHEEL SIZE | 63.5º HEAD TUBE ANGLE
Please note that we will confirm availability of your frame, colour and size when we recieve your order as avaibility can change without notice.
Check out https://yeticycles.com/bikes/sb165 or get in touch directly. We'll be able to talk to you about what is currently available, what you want to get out of your bike (if you need help deciding) and approx delivery time frames.
The rowdiest trails are outside the tape, so we gravity tested in the lab and toss tested by Reed Boggs.
SECURE IN THE
Chainguide ready out of the box. And standard equipment on all SB165 builds.
The SB165 is built tough. The frame meets Yeti DH testing standards, well beyond what others do for a 165mm trail bike. This thing will last for a lifetime, but we gave you a warranty to match just for good measure.
Chair lift, Shuttle truck or self-shuttle. The SB165 doesn’t discriminate. If you choose to earn your turns, it’s no slouch.
Across our line, we have chosen a relatively flat and high anti-squat curve in the beginning and mid-section of travel where pedaling commonly occurs a.k.a. the pedaling zone. This creates an efficient pedaling platform through your entire pedaling zone, as opposed to one single point. After the pedaling zone, there is an inflection point where the Switch Infinity link moves down, dropping the anti-squat drastically. Riders are typically not pedaling in this zone, so chain forces have less of an effect on the suspension performance. Decoupling of the chain forces allows the suspension to work more efficiently to absorb impacts making the feel of a Yeti distinct
When seeking to find the outer limits of personal performance, it would be a shame to reach the limit of your bike first. A straighter curve through the mid stroke provides more support is inherent to suspension kinematics. And a steeper progression ramp up at the end of the travel - without affecting the anti-squat characteristics is unique to our patented Switch Infinity suspension – delivers a feel that is capable of pushing as hard and deep as most are willing to go.
Tuned for a coil shock with a 27.5% progression, the SB165 is the most progressive bike in our line.
Plush, planted, bottomless, wants more.
NEW SCHOOL GEO FOR NEW SCHOOL FREERIDE.
Devouring big terrain, the SB165 feels better the faster, steeper and deeper riders go
SLACKER THAN MOST DH BIKES
The SB165 loves the steeps.
STEEP WHERE IT COUNTS
A steeper seat tube angle means pedaling back up isn’t a slog.
DUAL CROWN COMPATIBLE
Capable and already on Reed’s bike.
