Featuring 165mm of coil-shock-driven Switch Infinity suspension, a 180mm fork up front, super slack geometry, and playful 27. 5in wheels, Yeti's SB165 is made to handle the rowdiest and most technical trails you can possibly find while remaining comfortable enough pedal back to the top for another lap (or five). It's a bike that's equally at home ripping the bike park as it is racing gnarly enduro courses, and it's just as willing to air over rock gardens as it is to plow straight through them. If this sounds to you like a recipe for pure fun, you'd be absolutely right, and the SB165 might just be the right bike for you.The SB165 is essentially the replacement for the SB6, a bike that dominated the Enduro World Series for a number of years at the hands of Yeti's team riders. The SB165 builds on that foundation, but Yeti pushes the geometry into fully modern territory to stay ahead of the current crop of long-travel sleds. The reach has grown by 40mm in size large compared to the SB6, landing at a whopping 480mm, and the head angle was slackened by a full 1. 5-degrees down to 63. 5-degrees. These numbers are pretty close to what you'd find on downhill race bikes, which means riders can enjoy absolute confidence carrying speed through treacherous rock gardens and steep, washed-out chutes. The longer reach and slacker angles mean the wheelbase has also grown considerably compared to the SB6--a full 1. 6-inches to be exact--but Yeti keeps that in check with a short offset fork that maintains excellent steering precision, ensuring you'll have no trouble threading the needle in tricky terrain. Yeti also did the requisite steepening of the seat tube angle, which at 77-degrees puts the rider in a nice forward riding position to help keep power to the pedals and the steering quick and nimble while climbing. While the SB165 is certainly a big bike, Yeti's progressive geometry and the remarkable efficiency of the Switch Infinity suspension platform means this bike climbs wit..   read more
