Product Info

The latest, greatest, and biggest from Yeti. The Yeti Cycles SB165 C1 Complete Mountain Bike is a freeride bike for the modern era, and it's downright scary. A bike made for the absolute heaviest terrain, it's a slack long-travel (165mm rear, 180mm front) 27.5"-wheeled carbon beast of a machine. Truly "a DH bike you can pedal up," it utilizes the Switch Infinity suspension system to somehow allow a long, coil shock-equipped mega bike to climb with ridiculous efficiency. There's not much more to say about the SB165: you've already made your mind up. And you're right!

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Switch Infinity Suspension | 165mmSwitch Infinity utilizes a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel. This provides excellent anti-squat characteristics for superior pedaling performance and ideal suspension characteristics as it gets deeper into the travel. The Switch Infinity suspension was tuned for anti-squat and leverage ratio properties that emphasize the downhill capabilities while finding a balance for it uphill pedaling efficiency. Making this an enduro race machine that slays the down and get you to the top without ramping up the heart rate too much.

C/Series Carbon FrameBy making small changes in the carbon fiber layup of their TURQ Series bikes, Yeti was able to create a more aggressively priced carbon high-performance mountain bike. C-Series frames maintain the strength and stiffness of the TURQ Series. The carbon fiber in C-Series weighs a bit more, about 190g per frame. Every bike model is offered in at least one C-Series option with high-end components.

Fox Performance Vanilla Coil Rear ShockThe plushness and predictability of a steel spring is undeniable. Your rear tire will stay planted on the ground as it soaks up all hits--from huge to barely perceptible. Steel spring weights: S - 350lb, M - 400lb, L - 400lb, XL - 450lb.

Shock AdjustmentsPreload, Speed-Sensitive Compression Damping

Internal Cable RoutingThis may seem like a small thing, but having a clean aesthetic on the frame along with internally molded carbon tubes inside for hassle-free cable routing is key. It makes for a quiet ride and ease of maintenance. For Yeti, building a great frame is all about the details.

Integrated Axle and HangerThe integrated axle and derailleur hanger system is built for simplicity and strength. Utilizing a left-hand thread to secure the hanger allows Yeti to incorporate the same machine piece for the axle retention. A clever little system the engineers spent many hours on that might get overlooked.

Bottle Cage MountWithin the front triangle, fits piggyback shocks.

Fork

Fox 36 Float PerformancePerformance forks retain the same black anodized 7000 series aluminum upper tubes as Performance Elite, but have a different damper (FIT GRIP) with fewer adjustments.

Drive Train

SRAM GX Eagle™SRAM Eagle™ drivetrains are the only 1x drivetrains that are fully system engineered for optimal performance. Eagle™ drivetrains are designed, tested and proven to deliver the lightest, highest-performing, most durable systems for all riders on any trail. Eagle™ technology provides an expanded, optimum, gear range that allows you to realize your bike's potential beyond where it has ever been. Every SRAM GX Eagle™ component is 100% compatible with all levels of SRAM Eagle™ drivetrain systems.

Brakes

SRAM Code R BrakesetSleek, easy to use, yet immensely powerful. Code R packs a winning punch with a reliable DirectLink™ lever mated to Code’s new oversized four-piston caliper. SRAM’s signature ergonomics are supplemented by the tool-free reach adjust for a fit to each riders’ needs, to unleash Code’s superior braking power, consistency and modulation.

SRAM Centerline RotorsThe CenterLine design provides a smooth, consistent, and quiet running braking surface. Rounded edges make for easier wheel installs and are UCI-compliant.

Wheel Set

DT Swiss M1900 30mm WheelsetAt 30 mm internal rim width the M 1900 SPLINE 30 works for tires ranging from slightly wide to quite wide, allowing it to attack the hardest of terrains. But with a high-end build, butted spokes, patented aluminum Pro Lock nipples and the benchmark Ratchet System hubs, it still comes in at a low weight. Low weight means it's very reactive to rider input. Reactive means fun, and fun is why we are doing this, right?

Maxxis Minion DHF Front TireWith a tread design that deftly balances rolling speed with braking and cornering traction, it's hard to find fault with the Minion DHF. That's probably why it's one of the most imitated tires in mountain biking. Whether riding local trails, a backcountry epic, racing enduro or World Cup downhill, there's a Minion DHF spec to meet your needs.

Maxxis Minion DHR II Rear TireThe DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped leading edges to improve acceleration and sipes to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control.

Additional Features

Fox Transfer Dropper PostThe Transfer continues an excellent reputation of smooth function and great reliability with an infinitely adjustable height design, and internal or external cable routing options. Low lever force and great modulation make it easy to regulate return speed and small height adjustments.
