Bombing down our home trails in Park City or lining up at the EWS, the Yeti SB160 is an enduro machine we would be proud to ride any day. We love the Yeti SB160 for its premium suspension system, aggressive geometry, and race-inspired design. Yeti took the proven SB150 platform and amplified it, giving the SB160 10 millimeters more travel in the rear, a longer reach, a shorter seat tube, and a higher clearance frame. Yeti's renowned Switch Infinity suspension system received an update this year, giving us a smaller, more compact design, more durable, corrosion-resistant bearings, floating collet pivot axles for enhanced stiffness, and a new bushing design for greater sensitivity. The slack 64-degree head tube angle gives us extra confidence when descending by giving us more stability and keeping our front wheel tracking out in front of us.

The SB160 has a long reach, 29-inch wheels, and size-specific seat tube angles and chainstays to give us a bike that is as fast and confident as possible on the descents while still maintaining poise and agility when climbing. Yeti revised their progression curve and made it more linear, bumping it down 17 degrees to give us more predictable damping characteristics and better small bump sensitivity. Meanwhile, the last third of the travel sees a steep increase in progression, supplying us with bottom-out resistance. The T3 XO Eagle Transmission AXS build of the Yeti SB160 is race-worthy and has premium components. Yeti's TURQ carbon frame is made with the best carbon fiber available to give us the stiffest and lightest frame possible. SRAM's X0 Transmission AXS drivetrain provides us with the latest technology in electronic shifting, sporting an auto-adjusting overload clutch that can recenter itself after being knocked out of line following a crash, f...
