THE NEW SB160

BE FASTEST

NEW SCHOOL GEOMETRY. MANIACALLY REFINED.

Frame geometry that was ground breaking four years ago has been revisited with a keen eye on making a more balanced ride. Yeti engineers and designers mined the depths of every millimeter to create a nuanced set of refinements that deliver another leap forward in how well a mountain bike can ride. No hyperbole here: these bikes ride even more than before.

More to come on those millimeters.

SIZE SPECIFIC SEAT TUBE ANGLES
Riders of all sizes stay in a powerful pedal position with seat tube angles that increase with frame size. This makes the transition from seated to standing easier, especially for taller riders.

A REACH FOR AGILITY
A more neutral position keeps riders weighting both wheels more evenly. This makes the bike more agile and spritely. New reach numbers also scale with travel of each bike.

SIZE SPECIFIC CHAIN STAYS
Chain stay length increases with frame size, ensuring the rear center of the bike is proportionately correct for riders of all sizes (XS-XXL).

BALANCED VERTICAL TRAVEL
Modern head angles are slack, so we run front travel than rear travel to balance the bike. This delivers a brilliantly balanced ride.

LEVERAGE RATES. REFINED.
With the release of the last generation of Yeti Switch Infinity bikes, Yeti focused on fine tuning leverage rates. The results are apparent in our award and race winning bikes.

The new line of Yeti Switch Infinity bikes builds on this already successful set of suspension kinematics with subtle refined leverage rates that are adjusted for the added travel of each new bike. The new bikes maintain our balanced approach to leverage rate resulting in a incredibly predictable ride.

THE NEW SILHOUETTE OF SPEED.
The refined main frame and swingarm silhouette is more than just striking good looks – it’s an engineering approach that packages Switch Infinity and shock linkage in a tighter, more efficient package with added impact clearance. Holistic frame chassis stiffness has increased, along with tire clearance.

INCREDIBLE RIDE FEEL. FROM THE INSIDE OUT.
Over the course of hundreds of virtual simulation comparisons and back-to-back carbon prototype testing, we’ve refined our carbon layups to deliver consistent torsional stiffness and flex profiles across all frame sizes. The feel is precise yet compliant while structurally balancing light weight and durability.

SWITCH INFINITY. RECALCULATED.
Discover the next-gen of translating pivot suspension design. Setting new expectations for kinematics, longevity, sensitivity and strength.

SPEED METAL.
Our new pivot design uses 100% standard sized cartridge bearings secured with precision – machined Floating Collet Axles. All bearings are pressed into the linkage assembly vs the swingarm or front triangle.

Our new Floating Collet pivot design uses standard sized cartridge bearings in precision, machined Floating Collet Axles boosting longevity and reducing tolerance gaps to virtually zero while keeping the assembly tight over time.

PATENTED COMPACT WISHBONE AND NEW ULTRA-COMPACT LINK.
Our patented, compact and ultra-compact links allows Yeti to fine-tune kinematics, and maximizes stand-over clearance. The all-new ultra-compact extender nests inside the mainframe, for a stiffer and sleeker hidden pivot.

With the two-piece extender approach, clamping of the shock is optimized while simultaneously making shock removal painless. Finally, our compact and ultra-compact link designs also maximize water-bottle fitment by moving the shock forward in the frame.
