"Race bred". It's not just a slogan printed in the SB150 top tube. We've beem pinning on numbers and pinning on the throttle since 1985. So when the choices had to be made on the SB150, every single one was made in the name of unbridled speed. The ultimate example of breeding a bike to beat the clock.
Tuned for Enduro performance
Switch Infinity has proven itself on the race course amassing more EWS wins that any other system. We took that winning heritage and made the leverage ratio more progressive (But not too progressive) to provide greater compatibility with modern shocks and various rider weights/styles. In addition the bike has better small bump compliance, ramps up quicker in the mid-stroke for a playful supportive feel, while still allowing for full travel and bottom out control. Thanks to Switch Infinity the anti-squat and pedaling efficiencies remain superb.
Tested to DH standards
The SB150 is built Richie "F-ing" Rude tough. The frame meets Yeti DH testing standards, well beyond what others do for a 150mm trail bike. This thing will last for a lifetime, but we gave you a warranty to match just for good measure.
The SB150 has progressive enduro inspired geometry. We took what we learned from the SB6 and our Factory team riders and made it low, slack, and long. It is designed for shorter fork offsets, we slackened the "real" headangle and made the seatube angle way steeper. The reach is also longer with shorter chainstays. What does this mean? All these elements increase the DH prowess and move the rider forward on the bike. But these advantages are not one sided. The steeper seat angle, short fork offset, and forward riding position also keeps the front wheel on the ground, the power to the pedals and the steering quick and nimble when climbing.
New water bottle location
The water bottle fits comfortably inside the front triangle, where you might be used to looking for it. It took considerable effort to accommodate a bottle, optimize stand-over and meet our kinematic expectations, but we knew it was important to you. So we finally did it.
Internal cable routing
Internally tunneled cable routing allows for clean lines and a quiet, rattle-free ride. It also makes servicing your bike quick and easy.
