Why We Like The SB140 Carbon C2 GX Eagle AXS Mountain Bike
Sporting a lightweight enduro personality and snappy 27.5-inch wheels, the Yeti SB140 GX Eagle AXS Mountain Bike has answers for any kind of riding. The carbon frame is suspended by Yeti's Switch Infinity which offers supreme pedaling performance and a bottomless feel on the descents. 140mm of rear travel helps soak up the huck-to-flats we love and the hard-charging we do in our backyard mountains. Yeti designed the SB140 to go fast where it counts and keep it light-hearted when the trail calls for jumps and flow.
Designed from the ground up for trails that favor the descents but can still charge up the climbs, this version of the SB140 receives modern low and long geo to maximize stability at speed. The 140mm of rear suspension paired with a 160mm fork happily gets us through an enduro stage race on Saturday and a long ride with our friends on a Sunday morning. We use the moderately slack 65.4-degree head tube to keep us stable at speed, while the 27.5in wheels let us make quick direction changes and hop over logs and rocks.
We love that this kit comes with the all-electronic GX AXS shifting. Made from the same DNA as electronic shifting found on the higher level SRAM AXS drivetrains, the GX AXS drivetrain doesn't sacrifice any reliability or durability. Electronic shifting means fewer wires, less fuss, and perfect shifts every time we hit the button... as long as our batteries are charged. The bike comes stock with smooth-rolling DT Swiss wheels and is supported by FOX suspension front, rear, and even in the linkage. The Switch Infinity linkage stays firm in the early and mid-stroke, switching to a bump-gobbling feel as we reach about 40% into the shock travel.
*Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
