Product Info

The latest, greatest, and biggest from Yeti. The Yeti Cycles SB165 T2 X01 Eagle 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 we can say about the SB165: you've already made your mind up. And you're right!

Product Details

Frame/Shock

TURQ Carbon FramesetTURQ Series bikes are made with the highest quality carbon fiber available and offer the perfect balance of stiffness and compliance. The result is a bike that feels smooth, solid and aggressive. Every bike is tested by the best racers in the world, including EWS World Champion Richie Rude, an in-house testing team and ambassadors around the world.

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.

Fox Factory DHX2 Coil Rear ShockThe plushness and predictability of a steel spring is undeniable. Combined with a DHX2 damper, this shock gives you tunability and consistency.

Tested to DH StandardsThe SB165 is tested under heightened frame requirements to withstand more abuse. What does this mean? The frame is tested to stiffness and impact levels of downhill bike standards. Along with the testing in the lab, the thing is Richie "F-ing" Rude approved.

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.

Integrated Frame ProtectionThe frame protectors for the down tube and chainstay are custom molded to match the frame. This guarantees a proper fit and adhesion to the frame for years of protection without the need for replacement or additional adhesives.

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.

Fork

Fox Factory 36The award-winning 36 gets a huge performance boost with the new FIT GRIP2 4-way adjustable damper. Equipped with the patent-pending Variable Valve Control (VVC) high- and low-speed rebound adjuster, improved compression damping and less friction overall, this 36 offers a new level of performance and adjustability that matches Fox's X2 shocks. The best-of-the-best technology Fox has to offer is available in Factory Series models with buttery smooth, and ultra durable Genuine Kashima Coat. These products are World Cup proven.

Drive Train

SRAM X01 Eagle™The X01 Eagle™ drivetrain signals an exciting new era of freedom and the next level of uncompromising performance for enduro racers and aggressive trail riders. Watching the world's best racers use our parts to battle against nature, physics and time itself, has inspired us to supply them with the most advanced tools we can develop. X01 Eagle™ takes everything you love about our pioneering 1x drivetrains and increases its wear life, toughness, precision, smooth and silent operation. Add to that the 10- to 50-tooth, 12-speed, Eagle™ cassette, and you have a range of gears that gives you the freedom to enjoy the benefit of 1x in any terrain, any location and at any speed. X01 Eagle™ is drivetrain freedom-how you exploit it is up to you.

Brakes

SRAM Code RSC BrakesetMeet the new standard for hard-hitting, heavy-duty braking. SRAM added 15% extra piston power and 30% more volume in the lever reservoir, ensuring peak performance for the full run. And with SwingLink™ and Lever Pivot Bearing technologies, lever feel remains smooth and progressive, no matter how hard the pull. Go deeper and grab more power.

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 Custom EX1700 30mm 27.5" WheelsetJust wide enough, just light enough. At 30 mm internal rim width the EX1700 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.
