Tame the Terrain.
The Yeti Beti SB5 Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike's frame is identical to the SB5 with the exception of a lighter shock tune and touch points (saddle, grips, and bar) better suited for smaller and lighter riders. This bike is just as eager to hit up some hot laps after work as it is tackling that multi-day vacation to a mountain bike mecca that you've been dying to ride. Yeti did a masterful job of curating the spec on this particular build. On the SB5 Beti Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike, all of the parts are high-performing and durable enough to get you through multiple seasons of use while coming in at a price that brings the idea of traveling to those far away trailheads a reality. FOX suspension handles the bounce on both ends and the SRAM GX Eagle provides a gear for every occasion.
Both the SB5 and the Beti version have received industry acclaim as a bike that can tackle most any trail condition you will face but still comes in at an impressive weight and pedals exceptionaly well. We attribute the excellent suspension performance to Yeti's Switch Infinity slider. The system utilizes a patented translating pivot that automatically switches direction as the bike moves through its travel. This provides excellent anti-squat characteristics for superior pedaling performance and ideal suspension characteristics as it gets deeper into the travel. Inside are a pair of greased bushings that slide up and down on two Kashima coated rails co-developed with FOX Racing Shox. The fully sealed SWITCH INFINITY mechanism has external grease ports to lube the bushings and seals so maintenance is a piece of cake and you will be spending more time on the trail marveling the excellence of this 5 inches of travel instead of working on your bike or time spent in the shop.
We would be remiss if we didn't speak of the two varieties of carbon used on Yeti frames. The TURQ series is a higher modulus carbon that allows Yeti to build a strong and stiff, very durable frame while using less material, dropping roughly three-quarters of a pound. The carbon series as we have on this build, comes in just north of 6 pounds with shock, depending on size, which still puts it on the lighter end of the trail bike spectrum without sacrificing any strength or stiffness to the TURQ frames. Available in sizes ranging from XS-Large, the low geometry while give you total confidence to test your limits and the tapered head tube and boost spacing front and rear give you all the feedback and stiffness needed when corning hard or pushing the pace through the aspens, pines or whatever indigenous trees you find yourself flying through.
