Brand:Yeti Cycles

Code:YCB17S5PC-BlackTurq

The Yeti SB5+ Carbon Series XT/SLX Mountain Bike 2017 offers unparalleled stability and traction with 27.5+ platform and 5 inches of ample travel. The Yeti SB5+ is perfect for pushing your limits, delivering exceptional stability and traction across the most demanding of terrain. Add 5 inches of ample travel to the equation and you have a bike that is nearly unstoppable. Yeti's Switch Infinity suspension platform and smart frame design brings ease to mucky trails, loose gravel and essentially any trail condition you can imagine.

There are no flip-chips with the Yeti SB5+, no adjustable geometry, no multiple wheel sizes, nothing to alter with its suspension kinematics. This is due to the drastic impact these adjustments have on critical frame properties such as bottom bracket height and mechnical trail. Not wanting to sacrifice any defining ride characteristics by adopting the wheels to fit an existing platform, the SB5+ is born and bred as a all-round plus bike.

Yeti SB5+ Carbon XT/SLX 2017 Features

  • Unparalleled stability and traction
  • Designed to work exclusively with plus-sized wheels. No Compromise.
  • Switch Infinity patented suspension system
  • High modulus carbon fibre main frame and swing arm
  • Elevated chainstays for rigidity and component clearance.

  • Fox Float Performance rear shock
  • Shimano XT/SLX 1x11 groupset. 30T / 11-46T gearing

Yeti SB5+ Carbon Frame Details

A stable and robust frame with a minor weight penalty, the SB5+ Carbon Series frame weighs just 250m grams more than its TURQ counterpart. The result is a strong and sturdy bike ready to attack your local trail scene.

Switch Infinity Translating Pivot - Explained

The Switch Infinity holds full control of the bikes 5" of suspension, switching direction as the bike moves through its travel to result in a confidence inspiring performance that feels simply amazing on the trail. As you move through the bikes travel the pivot switches direction, early on in the movement it heads upwards, providing anti-squat and optimal pedalling.

Further along the travel the pivot eventually switches to a downwards movement, providing you with a bottomless feeling that stops any chain force from affecting how the suspension performs. All resulting in an efficient, fun to ride and most importantly high performing ride both on the up and down hill!

    Yeti SB5 Plus Carbon XT Mountain Bike 2017 Black/Turquoise review by Professional Review From Bike Mag, on 25/01/2017

    PLUS-SIZE MEETS LIGHTWEIGHT PERFORMANCE

    Two schools of design have emerged within the plus-size market: One builds bikes around either plus-size or normal tires, but intends for compatibility with both, while the other goes all-in on plus.

    The 127-mil-travel SB5+ falls into the latter category, fitting up to a 3-inch-wide tire between its conspicuously elevated stays. As one would expect, Yeti’s initial plus offering makes use of the Switch Infinity system, which is a carrier on rails housed above the bottom bracket. The translating pivot increases anti-squat at the settle point where pedaling happens, and then changes direction deeper in the travel for increased suppleness. The system feels well-suited to plus size, with the tires’ added traction complementing its anti-squat characteristics. In tandem with the 74-degree seat-tube angle, this makes the SB5+ one of those bikes that will have you taking another look at those previously un-climbable pitches, though you will need diligent stroke timing to avoid pedal strikes.

    Plus-size tires add rolling resistance, but our test crew noted that the SB5+ rode lighter than most other plus bikes. Yeti’s high-end Turq carbon is partially to thank here–it shaves about half a pound compared to Yeti’s lower-cost carbon–which, combined with our XT build kit–including DT Swiss wheels, XT brakes and a primarily XT drivetrain–results in a size-large weight of just under 29 pounds. Despite our appreciation for the svelte rig, buyers will get the most value out of the non-Turq builds, which start at $4,700.

    When pushed into corners, the supportive midstroke kicks in after the deformation of the tires, and there was plenty of suppleness on tap deeper in the stroke. Because of those big, soft tires, the SB5+ isn’t as sure of itself at high speeds and when dealing with jumps or high-G corners. It has a confident feel in technical terrain, though, thanks to its relatively long 1,190-millimeter wheelbase, reasonable 67-degree head angle and 150-millimeter-travel Fox 34 fork. Given that all three testers felt it was one of, if not the top-performing plus-size bike in this year’s Bible, it’s clear that the SB5+’s commitment to big tires pays off on the trail.
