Long stroke dropper post capability throughout entire size range — for greater agility.
The deeper you go, the higher you climb, the later you brake, the more comfortable SB130 becomes. Bottom line, the term “trail bike” gets used pretty liberally at Yeti.
Refined for the unknown and everything in between the SB130's Switch Infinity provides more progressive ride without effecting the anti-squat properties.
Across our line, we have chosen a relatively flat and high anti-squat curve in beginning and mid-section of travel where pedaling commonly occurs a.k.a the pedaling zone. This creates an efficient pedaling platform through your entire pedaling zone, there is an inflection point where the Switch Infinity link moves down, dropping the anti-squat drastically. Riders are typically not pedaling in this zone, so chain forces have less of an effect on the suspension performance. Decoupling of the chain forces allows the suspension to work more efficiently to absorb impacts making the feel of a Yeti distinct.
Internally routed cable tubes from end to end for silent function. And less translation of housing during suspension movement.
The hum of tires gripping dirt - the only approved sound on a YETI.
At the heart of the SB130 suspension design is our patented Switch Infinity suspension system. Switch Infinity utilizes a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel providing excellent anti-squat characteristics.
