We've been waiting with bated breath, and we can finally relax, because the Yeti SB-75 Enduro complete bike is finally here. As longtime fans of the SB platform, we were understandably excited to hear that the Superbike was going to get the 27.5-inch wheel treatment. And in the Enduro guise, with a FOX 34 CTD Kashima fork, and a full SRAM build kit, the 75 is up to everything that you're able to throw at it, while still proving to be an incredible value. We think that you'll agree, this next generation of Superbike has been well worth the wait. The SB-75 represents the latest version of Yeti's Switch Technology suspension platform. At a glance, it's easy to mistake the Switch platform for a linkage-driven single pivot, but hidden underneath the blue anodized hardware is an eccentric pivot. Essentially, this turns the SB series into a whole different beast. The eccentric pivot is basically a smaller pivot that's housed inside of a larger one. As a result, this system provides Yeti with an extra degree of control over the forces involved in the suspension action. In the beginning of the SB's five-inches of travel, the pivot rotates towards the rear axle. This means that it's rotating opposite the direction of the pedaling forces that are being applied through the chain. In translation, it neutralizes the pedaling force. So, the SB remains stiff and responsive under power, rather than allowing your pedaling force to influence the suspension. As the bike compresses into the bottom of the travel, the eccentric link changes direction, rotating toward the front axle. This forward rotation keeps the chainstays short under full-compression, which keeps your weight centered in a neutral position relative to the wheelbase. And that all adds up to predictable feel and control throughout the entirety of the bike's travel. But despite the sophistication of the Switch platform, it's easily serviced by home mechanics. As for the upright link driving the rear shock, it works i...
