Yeti Cycles SB6 Carbon X01 Complete Mountain Bike 2016

Since its recent reveal, the SB6's accolades have been heaped up like so many rock gardens. Despite the acclaim it's received for its flagship enduro module, Yeti is riding roughshod over those accolades with the same disregard that the SB6 itself rides over literal rock gardens, updating the frame's chassis yet again with a 148mm Boost rear axle. The resulting SB6 Carbon X01 Complete Mountain Bike makes for an even stiffer, more climb happy enduro sled, and promises to continue the Colorado based manufacturer's inveterate habit of piling up critical praise.

Other than those two changes, the 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 tr...
