LATTEST UPDATE : TIPS ON HOW TO DRESS FOR MTB IN WINTER

Good as Gold! 2017 Yeti SB6 Custom Build


Yeti Cycle's 2017 range recently landed in New Zealand, and since then we've been itching to get the chance to build up one of the frames. Well, our wishes came true and the result was this beauty of a custom SB6.

Built up on Yeti's new TURQ series frame (made with the highest quality carbon fiber available, according to Yeti) this bike is looking to be an absolute enduro beast. With 6 inches of travel in the rear and a monster 170mm Rock Shox Lyrik up front, this SB6 is built to crush the downhill. 

Arguably the biggest attention grabber on the bike is the drivetrain. Also brand new for this year, SRAM's XX1 Eagle line pulled out all the stops with its jaw-dropping gold colour scheme. Still holding strong to their 1x set up, SRAM added one more chainring to the rear giving birth to this behemoth of a 12 speed, 10-50 tooth cassette. 

Rounding out the impressive build were a pair of blue Hope Pro 4 hubs laced to SRAM Roam Carbon rims, SRAM Guide RSC brakes, MRP chain guide, Reverb dropper post and Thomson Trail Carbon bars. It's safe to say we're pretty stoked on this build!
