Yeti Cycles SB6 Carbon Eagle Complete Mountain Bike 2017

With its 2017 SB6 Carbon Eagle Complete Mountain Bike, Yeti takes advantage of trickle down technology in its choice to split its frame lines into standard Carbon and advanced Turq models this year, with the SB6 Carbon falling into the former category. Don't be mistaken though this SB6's carbon construction is still top notch, and is a testament to just how far the industry has come with carbon. It's just a little bit heavier than the highest of high grade Turq, which means you're getting a bomber bike at a more attainable price point for the sacrifice of a mere claimed 260g, which is about the weight of a small cup of coffee if we put it in real world terms. Yeti pairs the SB6 frame with SRAM's new X01 Eagle drivetrain, which gives the surprisingly capable chassis an ultimate bailout gear in the form of a 50t cog. The Switch Infinity suspension system is a key element behind the SB6's versatility. Switch Infinity originally replaced the Switch Link design, which experienced a momentary harshness when rapidly successive hits kept it hovering above the 30% stroke point. The new design has a more linear travel arc, so the eccentric link changes direction without getting caught in that minute dead spot. Of course, 95% of all riders won't ever push the Switch Link hard enough to experience this dead spot, but Yeti being Yeti went ahead and fixed it anyway. For those of us who are our own mechanics, Yeti also simplified maintaining the Switch Infinity by including easily accessible grease ports, which do away with the need for time consuming rebuilds. Aside from these updates, the two suspension systems are fairly similar. Like the Switch Link, the Switch Infinity slider travels upward under the first phase of compression, when the SB6 is settling into its sag point. As the rear end compresses deeper, the direction changes, and the DH inspired slider travels down toward the bottom bracket shell to maintain a steady pedaling platform. This change of direction is sm...
