For 2016, Yeti didn't bother to make any changes to the SB5 Carbon X01 Complete Mountain Bike's frame or Switch Infinity rear suspension however, the bike does have a modified build, though, with the biggest difference manifesting as 10mm more travel in the FOX 34 Float fork. This change makes for a more aggressive front end overall, dropping the effective head tube angle slightly while also increasing the front travel to a monstrous six inches. Maybe this decision had something to do with FOX's redesign of the Float series or maybe it's because Yeti realized it could tease even more enduro aggression out of the SB5. Whatever the case, it makes the bike that much more stable across rock gardens and root lattices, which makes the Super Bike 5 that much superer. Despite the different fork, the rear suspension is still the star of any Yeti. The Switch Infinity suspension is a masterpiece of modern enduro design because its linear travel hits the sweet spot of anti squat to keep pedaling sharp across rocky climbs. Deep in the stroke, the Switch Infinity slider works in conjunction with the upper pivot to produce a vertical wheel path that effortlessly flattens big, square edged impacts. It also erases the momentary harshness that its predecessor, the Switch Link design, would display when pushed to the absolute limit. Of course, most riders will never experience that dead spot on the Switch Link, but the SB5 isn't for most riders. It's for the all mountain racer who demands that his machine eats deep log roll overs with the same tenacity that it cleans long climbs a rare breed in the enduro scene as a whole, but common enough in Yeti's Tribe of enduro nutters. It's also easier to maintain than its predecessor, which makes even some of the most mechanically inept feel like a pro wrench. The SB5's frame remains the next evolution of Yeti's proven carbon fiber chassis. Frame weights are right around five pounds with shock, depending on size, which puts it on the l...
