Yeti Cycles SB4.5 Carbon Eagle Complete Mountain Bike 2017

This year, Yeti Cycles joins the crowd of companies offering multiple frame tiers to open up a wider range of pricing for those of us who can't imagine dropping close to five figures on a bicycle. As such, the 2017 SB4. 5 Carbon Eagle Complete Mountain Bike benefits from trickle down technology to bring a fast, race ready frame with top tier components into slightly more attainable territory. The carbon construction is still top notch, and is a shining example of just how advanced carbon construction methods have become.

Its 67. 4 degree head tube is one of the slackest we've seen on an XC leaning 29er, and it makes for a boost of confidence while picking lines across terrain that would make a more typical 70 71 degree head tube stumble. The Switch Infinity suspension is equally confidence inspiring, and its linear travel hits the sweet spot of anti squat to keep pedaling sharp across rocky climbs. It also erases the momentary harshness that its predecessor, the Switch Link design, would display when pushed to the absolute limit. Of course, most r...
