Ride Richie's Whip
We have a thing for pro bikes. It's cool to see every detail that goes into a race winning ride each component is chosen specifically for the job. Yeti now gives you the chance to own a bike built to every last exacting detail as 2 time Enduro World Series winner Richie Rude. The SB6 Turq Team Replica Complete Mountain Bike may not give you Richie's incredible speed or Cody Kelly's impressive style but it won't give you an excuse either. This is a limited edition model and only 150 will be made.
Starting with the frame, the SB6 TR only comes in the TURQ series, because when you're PRO, you only ride the best. On the EWS circuit the difference between winning and losing is measured in fractions of a second. The TURQ frames are built with the best possible frame materials available and is lighter and stiffer than the C-Series frame. The SB6 is tested under heightened frame requirements to withstand stiffness and impact levels of downhill bikes. Along with the testing in the lab the SB6 is ridden to victory on the toughest enduro race courses in the world. The TURQ frame gives you the best foundation for building up a bike that will be racing against the clock or if you just want the best performance out on the trail.
Yeti's EWS team only races on the best equipment. Longtime Factory Team sponsors like Fox, Shimano, DT Swiss, Renthal, Chris King, Maxxis, One-Up and Ergon makeup the brands found on this ride. This bike gives you the goods to dominate any enduro you are likely to enter or if you just love to ride nasty, technical terrain regularly. Up front the FOX Factory fork gets extended to 170mm. You will appreciate this when mobbing through steep, fast, technical terrain. High-speed chutes and jumps are no problem and any line choice becomes rideable. The "team-only" orange perfectly matches the orange highlights on the frame. A DHX2 replaces the DPX2 shock bringing DPS XC efficiency and X2 DH performance. The Dual Piston Base Valve has dedicated compression and lockout circuits for each of the three modes—Open, Medium, and Firm. It also features a recirculating damper design found in X2 shocks, creating excellent small bump sensitivity, great mid-stroke damping support, and better control in transitions. This is perfect for enduro racing, long shuttles, and park days. DT Swiss XM 1501 wheels engage quickly and dependably with DT Swiss star ratchets and the 30mm internal width rims give the Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5-inch and 2.3-inch Aggressor tires an excellent profile for attacking any terrain. Shimano's XTR components shift with precision and offer the best braking in the business, all of these things we have come to expect from the Japanese firm. An orange Chris King headset takes care of the steering and is so smooth and worry-free, you'll almost forget it's there. Renthal bars and stem are a team spec and the brand has a storied history in motocross. 800mm bars offer perfect control on steep and fast terrain and the Apex stem ensures a secure clamp to both the bar and steerer tube. A custom One-Up guide keeps the chain on no matter how rough the track is and the orange color adds to the customization of this awesome bike. Ergon GD1 grips and SME3 Pro saddle gets touch points covered adding impressive ergonomics and lightweight and durable components.
Switch Infinity gives the riders what they need from a suspension system without any negatives. It utilizes a patented translating pivot that 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. Plush deep travel when you need it and excellent pedaling efficiency everywhere else, it's a win-win.
This bike is truly a team replica and no detail went unnoticed. We love the color-match bling and the performance on the trail. This is a shred-ready weapon that will dominate your local enduro race series or will be the envy of anyone that catches a glimpse in the lift line. And while it might not come with Richie's speed, you have to look fast to go fast.
