A close up look at the Yeti SB165 C-Series C1 Build

 We have recently been asked by a few people for more details and photos on our bikes. Often the ones that get reviewed only show one build kit or colour. So we thought we might start doing a few posts with bikes you don't see very often!

Today we are featuring the YETI SB165 C-Series C1 Build in the raw colour. (the same build option is available in the turquoise colour as well)

The SB165 is of course the new big daddy, 27.5, mini DH bike from Yeti. While insanly capable, the biggest surprise I personally had when riding this bike was that it still actually pedalled fine (I took it to Tasmania for a 5 days solid riding in Derby and Meydena). But on the big stuff it was just ridiculous. I'v never felt more confident in the air, or riding off steep stuff. 

The C-Series C1 is our base build, so the frame is not built with the super high end toray carbon. It is however still a super high end grade of carbon and is just a few hundred grams heavier, however it does maintain the strength and stiffness of the TURQ Series. 

The C1 build comes with full SRAM GX 12 Speed drive chain and DT E-1900 wheels. The tires are Maxxis Minion DHR II 2.4 rear & Minion DHF 2.5 front, both EX0+ casing 

Note - the switch on the c-series is normally black, not Kashima as in this photo.

The fork on all C-Series bikes is the Fox Performance forks, which use the GRIP cartridge. 

On the back side, the bike features a Fox Vanilla shock. The bikes come standard with 350 weight spring on size small, 400 on size medium and large or 450 on XL


TThe bikes also come standard with this very nice ONE UP chain guide in turquoise.

To finish off the build kit, Yeti have their own branded saddle, which is actually a WTB Volt. And a Fox Transfer post (The amount of drop depends on the frame size - although we can switch these around if you ask - standard is 125mm size small, 150mm size medium, 175mm size large and xtra large)
