"The brand new Yeti SB115 has been designed to deliver top climbing performance on long days in the saddle and still provide a hefty adrenaline rush on the way down into the valley. Yeti divides their bikes into two categories: Race and Rip, or in other words, bikes for racing and bikes to have fun with.
While the two are not mutually exclusive, the area of application determines a certain direction of development.
The SB115 falls into the first category and is designed specifically for multi-day stage races like the BC bike race. For this reason, an efficient chassis, good level of comfort for long-distance stages, and top handling qualities, both up and downhill, were essential prerequisites."
