Yeti Cycles have always been 'Race Driven' and this year the Colorado brand added their third Enduro World Series championship gold medal in a row to their busting trophy cabinet. Since the brand was founded in 1985 their factory race team has been prolific winning World Championship titles in Cross Country, Downhill, 4X and 2016 saw them pick-up their third Enduro World Series title in a row as Richie Rude dominated the series once again. Yeti Cycles philosophy is pretty simple. They build bikes that they want to ride. Since the company's beginning's their ride-focused mind-set simplified the process and allows the best ideas to rise to the top, uncompromised by egos or titles. Mechanics often see things engineers don't. Pro riders feel things that only great riders can feel. These are all relevant. Some ideas that come out of this process are big and others amount to small detail changes, but the collective sum of these ideas is substantial and defines Yeti's bikes when you get them on the dirt.
For 2017, Yeti Cycles continues to add depth and variety to its high-performance line of mountain bikes. With the introduction of the T-Series, Yeti now offers all bike models in two carbon fibre levels (C-Series & T-Series) with the perfect build kit for each one. Within this new line-up are the all-new SB5 and SB5 Yeti Beti, both featuring a new sleek frame design, internal cable routing, and metric suspension. Additionally, Yeti have also added an all-new model with the SB5+, bringing plus-sized tyres to the performance market. All three bikes are equipped with Switch Infinity Technology and ready to rip.
The all-new SB5 is the next iteration of the most popular all-mountain bike. Born from the trails of Colorado, this bike represents everything a trail bike should be - lightweight, nimble on climbs and dominant on descents. With an updated, sleek frame design, internal cable routing, BOOST spacing, Switch Infinity suspension, and lower stand-over height, the all-new SB5 is the go-to choice for any trail adventure.
Always reaching for the widest tyre you can find? If so, push your limits on Yeti's all-new plus bike, the SB5+. Offering unparalleled stability and traction, the SB5+ offers 5 inches of travel, resulting in a bike that is nearly unstoppable. Yeti's Switch Infinity suspension platform and smart frame design will bring ease to mucky soggy trails, loose gravel and essentially any trail condition you can throw at this bike.
T-Series (TURQ Series)
Every T-Series product is engineered with the most advanced materials and progressive designs in the industry. This includes the use of a new lighter, stronger and stiffer carbon fibre. Tried and tested by professional racers, internal testing teams and Yeti's global ambassadors, T-Series products are honed in the most extreme environments and harshest conditions. Whether it's the toughest enduro tracks in the world, during their famously brutal daily lunch rides, or on expeditions from Iceland to New Zealand, you can be sure that the T-Series mark on any product means it's been put to the test in the toughest environments and performs to the high standards. Put simply, T-Series is the best of the best.
C-Series (Carbon Series)
By utilizing a less complex carbon fibre layup than their T-Series bikes, the C-Series maintains Yeti's award winning ride quality and technology standards only sacrificing weight to the T-Series. Every model in the line now includes C-Series frames pared with individually chosen components to balance performance and price.
