Why We Like The Yeti SB135 Turq Mountain Bike Frame
All new to Yeti's lineup, the SB135 is built to help us find the fun line, not the main line. The ultra-strong, ultralight TURQ carbon frame construction manages to strike the perfect balance between compliance and stiffness, giving us the most responsive ride possible. Built for maximum fun, the SB135 is designed around 27.5-inch wheels for its inherently playful ride feel and agile capability that makes short work of just about any trail. Ready for poppy, fun singletrack rides and mastering no-handers at the dirt jumps, 135mm of highly efficient Switch INfinity rear travel is backed by a Fox Factory Float X shock. With adjustments abound, we can pair it with a short-offset 150 - 160mm travel fork and dial in our perfect ride feel.
The Yeti SB135 frame was designed with all riders in mind and features size-specific seat tube angles and chainstay lengths to deliver a consistent ride feel across the entire size range. When paired with a 150mm fork, the 65.4-degree head tube angle is slack enough to provide stability at speed without sacrificing the agility we love about 27.5-inch wheel bikes. Yeti refined the leverage rates on all of their bikes in this generation to give us an incredibly predictable ride while also using a custom shock tune to get the most out of the 135mm of rear travel. And just because the SB135 delivers pro-level performance doesn't mean you need to be a pro mechanic to work on it. The cable routing has internal tubing and secure closures at the exit points for easy cable management and a quiet cockpit, while a threaded bottom bracket eliminates annoying creaks and squeaks. So whether we're looking to build up a high-flying machine for the dirt jumps or a mid-travel trail ripper to add a bit of the bike park to every ride, the Yeti SB135 TURQ Mountain Bike Frame is a great place to start.
