Yeti SB100

The new 2019 Yeti SB100 is a strong XC climbing machine, but the gravity-inspired geometry, 120mm Fox 34 Step-Cast fork, and meaty tires are all trail. The result is a perfect blend of pedaling efficiency with downhill prowess. They redesigned the Switch Infinity mechanism specifically for 100mm of travel – it’s light, and tucks behind the seat tube so that it can accommodate a water bottle in the front triangle. Big days require big bottles. Instead of chasing featherweight on the build, Yeti spec’d the bike as they tested it – Fox Transfer post, Maxxis 2.3 tires, and 180mm front rotor. It’s still light, but also right. Yeti pro rider, Geoff Kabush, will be defending his BC Bike Race title on this rig and it will also be his sled of choice for Downieville and the Breck Epic.
