It seems like most new bikes released these days are equipped with 29-inch wheels, which might give some people the notion that 27. 5in wheels are a dying breed. The truth is, there's a large subset of riders that prefer the smaller wheels for various reasons, including many pro racers. While wagon wheels may roll faster than their smaller counterparts in many situations, 27. 5in wheels respond more quickly to rider input, which means a tighter turning radius, a greater willingness to go airborne, and for some people, more fun. Yeti hasn't forgotten about our fun-loving friends, and for those of you who like to ride hard and go big, they've created the SB165 Turq T2 XO1 Eagle Mountain Bike. Boasting 165mm of Switch Infinity rear travel driven by a Fox coil shock, a 180mm Fox fork up front, slacked out geometry, and of course, 27. 5in wheels, the SB165 is built to clear big gaps and blast down the burliest and most technical trails you can find. Sure, it'll work great as an enduro race bike, especially on steep courses with chunky rocks and tricky corners, but compared to its race-bred sibling the SB150, the SB165 likes to fly just as much as plow, a playful combination that's sure to put a smile on any shredder's face when you're ripping laps at the bike park or blasting down your local DH trails. The SB165 effectively replaces the SB6, a bike that dominated the Enduro World Series for a number of years at the hands of Richie Rude. 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.
