Why We Like The SB115 C2 GX Eagle Factory Mountain Bike
Built to expand on Yeti’s reputation for XC race bikes, we position the SB115 C2 Factory Bike as not only a dedicated racing machine, but a trusted trail bike for lengthy rides in big terrain. Effectively replacing the race-ready SB100, the SB115 brings a whole new level of versatility to the table with enhanced rear-wheel traction that makes it ideal for hard-earned miles in untamed downcountry terrain. This C2 GX build is paired with Fox Factory suspension bits for unparalleled adjustability and small bump compliance, while the workhorse SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain provides reliably crisp shifting.
The SB115 shares the same front and rear triangles as the SB100 but uses a revised Switch Infinity link and a longer-stroke rear shock to gain its extra travel. On paper, its geometry numbers might look a bit conservative like the SB100’s, but that's right in line with the goal of this bike—to keep things lively and agile for quick accelerations and responsive handling on tight racecourses. Between the spritely handling characteristics and the bump-gobbling rear linkage, the SB115 fits into a racer’s stable as a dedicated tool for the job, or into a trail rider’s quiver as an efficient downcountry steed.
