Pinkbike.com check out Yeti’s big wheeled full suspension offering the SB-95 alloy and put the bike to the test.

With 127mm of rear wheel travel and multiple build options available the SB-95 is a top performing trail bike and after putting it to the test Pinkbike called it “one of the best mid-travel designs that we've ridden” amongst other glowing comments.

With the SB95, Yeti takes their Switch suspension technology from the popular 26"-wheeled SB66 platform to the world of big-wheelers. The 5'' travel aluminium 29er has been pegged as one of those ever elusive 'do it all' trail bikes that can be ridden as an all-day sort of rig, or fitted with a chain guide and longer stroke fork to appease a rider who might want to take his 29er to new heights.

Pinkbike’s take:

Labeling the SB95 as a 29er trail bike doesn't really paint a clear picture of just what the black Yeti is capable of - it doesn't ride like a 29er, and it certainly feels a touch more capable than your average trail bike - yet that is exactly what it is. We could harp on about negligible details like the lack of a dropper post as stock equipment, or the sole bottle cage location in the pain in the ass location under the down tube, but when it comes down to how the bike rides, it might just be one of the best mid-travel designs that we've ridden. How many of us are going to spend $6,500 USD on our next bike? Probably not a lot, which is why the $3,500 'Enduro Rock' version may be just the ticket. The less expensive build hangs off of the very same frame, giving riders the chance to get aboard this great performing platform for a more acceptable price. - Mike Levy
