Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
After riding a Yeti SB4.5c Turq (L) last season, I ordered a SB150 XO1 Turq (L) in May. The first rides were in Moab over Cinco de Mayo 2019, and since then, most of its rides have come in and around Park City, UT.
To be frank, I was a little concerned that the longer travel SB150 would put a major damper on my longer xc rides, but everyone I talked to and everything I read said it pedaled much better than most, if not all of the other bikes in this 29r enduro category. Having put 600+ miles on it since May, I can confirm with confidence that this bike is even better than you might think it is - on everything. It is a great pedaler - no it's not going to climb like the SB100, but it will certainly give you a chance to stay close on the climbs - and once you get to the top of that climb, well, just fugetaboutit. It you like to go fast, chances are, the SB150 likes to go faster. If you're into riding flowy, swooping xc trails, gnarly rock gardens, loamy forests, or the bike park - or better yet, all of those on different days - give the Yeti SB150 a serious look, it's impressive how far long travel 29rs have come in just a few short years.
