“THIS IS WHAT WE CAN DO WITH SHORT TRAVEL AND SWITCH INFINITY. IT TRANSCENDS THE WEIGHT-WEENIE, UPHILL ONLY MODELS AND REPLACES IT WITH A PRECISION RIDING BIKE. IF SOME PEOPLE ASSUME IT’S A DOWNHILLER’S XC BIKE, WHATEVER. FOR US, IT’S SIMPLY THE BIKE WE ALWAYS WANTED TO BUILD.” – YETI CYCLES
Genre killing geometry, inspired by going fast downhill but balanced to provide uphill efficiency. The SB100 blurs the lines between XC and Trail that is in large part to the progressive geometry. A longer front centre with shorter chainstays and a slacker head angle find the right combination of up and down.
Yeti redesigned the Switch Infinity specifically for 100mm of travel – it’s lighter and tucks neatly behind the seat tube. There is no performance compromise with the compact switch mechanism. It utilises the same proven Fox Racing bushing, seals, and Kashima stanchions.
The SB100 employs an integrated headset which allows for a lower overall stack height and cleaner carbon layup. The cleaner carbon layup means there are no aluminium inserts and less glue and material in the headset juncture. This all leads to a lighter, stronger front triangle. Internal routing allows for clean lines and less translation of housing during suspension movement.
