Yeti SB5.5 2017 Medium


THE SB5.5 IS WHERE THE TRAIL, ALL-MOUNTAIN AND GRAVITY BIKE INTERSECTRichie Rude, together with the remainder of Yeti’s in-house test team, agree that this lightweight bike eats up grueling technical climbs and hauls downhill. Omit any preconceived notions about 29ers, thanks to an impeccable frame design, shortened chain stays and aggressive suspension spec, this bike is easy to maneuver and feels lively and quick on the descents.Utilizing the same design and geometry of the higher end SB5.5 TURQ series, the SB5.5 Carbon offers similar stiffness and durability with only a 240 gram (0.5 lb) increase in weight. The SB5.5 Carbon is built to be responsive and lively, even as still capable of withstanding punishing descents.The bike’s 17.2 inch chainstays supporting the 29er wheel platform strike an optimal balance of stability and maneuverability. To reach this shortened chainstay designers eliminated the front derailleur mount and utilized a Boost rear spacing, but still keept true to Yeti’s classic long geometry. To balance the bike’s front end, we chose to use a long go back and forth 51mm offset fork combined with a 66.5 degree head angle. This allowed us to precisely tune the bike’s mechanical trail and wheelbase.Outfitted with the most sought-after drivetrain in the industry, the SB5.5 Carbon is able to take flight on your local trails and bike parks. Yeti rounded out the SRAM-centered bike spec with Fox Performance suspension, the aggressive Maxxis Minion DHF and Aggressor tires, together with SRAM brakes with monster 180mm rotors. The final touch is a burly Fox Transfer post to adjust to the ever-changing terrain.FEATURESSB5.5 Carbon Frame is stiff, durable and responsive.Fox Performance suspension built and tuned to stand up and ready when it’s time to get down.SRAM XO 1X Drivetrain reliable and smooth shifting, race ready.Race Face Cockpit all of the right contact points to launch your season of dominationSPECIFICATIONSFRAMEC-Series High modulus carbon fiber Yeti SB5.5 29er frame and swing arm, Switch Infinity suspension system, Internal cable routingFORKFOX PERFORMANCE 36/160mmREAR SHOCKFox Flow Performance DPX2HEADSETCane Creek 40 Insert TaperSHIFTERSRAM XO 11FRONT DERAILLEUR-REAR DERAILLEURSRAM XO 11 SpeedCRANKSETRACE FACE AFFECT 30TBOTTOM BRACKETRACE FACE BB92CHAINSRAM XO 11 CASSETTESRAM XO 11BRAKESSRAM GuideWHEELSETDT SWISS TIRESMaxxis Minion DHF EXO 2.5 Tubeless (f) / Maxxis Aggressor EXO 2.3 Tubless (r)HANDLEBARRace Face Respond 785mmSTEMRace Face Respond 45mmGRIPSERGON GA2SEATPOSTFOX TRANSFERSEATCLAMPYetiSADDLEWTB CUSTOM SADDLEINTENDED USETrail
