UPHOLDING A TIME-TESTED, RACE-BRED ETHOS THAT SAYS NOTHING SHOULD HOLD A RIDER BACK FROM THE SHEER JOY OF UNTETHERED SPEED. BUILT OFF ONE OF THE MOST WINNING RACE PLATFORMS IN EWS HISTORY, THE SB160 IS PURE RACE MACHINERY. HONED FOR MORE.
SWITCH INFINTY. RECALCULATED.
Discover the next-generation of translating pivot suspension designs. Setting new expectations for kinematics, longevity, sensitivity, and strength.
THE NEW SILHOUETTE OF SPEED.
The refined main frame and swingarm silhouette is more than just striking good looks — it’s an engineering approach that packages Switch Infinity and shock linkage in a tighter, more efficient frame with added impact clearance. Holistic frame chassis stiffness has increased, along with frame ground clearance.
FOR ALL RIDERS.
Every rider deserves a frame feel that’s tuned for them, regardless of frame size. Over the course of hundreds of virtual simulation comparisons and back-to-back carbon prototype testing, we’ve refined our carbon layups to deliver consistent torsional stiffness and flex profiles across all frame sizes. The feel is precise yet compliant while structurally balancing lightweight and durability.
Internally routed cable tubes with secure closures at entry and exit points eliminate rattles and cable rub. Whether running a mechanical drivetrain and dropper or a wireless setup, cable management is intuitively easy and quiet.
Threaded aluminum bottom bracket shell with integrated ISCG-05 tabs. This critical drivetrain interface is now more durable, cleaner, and easier to service.
If a hanger bending crash occurs, the new Yeti models use the Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH) interface — the industry standard mount for a rear derailleur. The UDH is available in nearly any bike shop, Yeti dealer or not.
MEET ULTRA COMPACT LINK.
Our patented, two-piece wishbone shock extender on the SB160 ensures optimal clamping, shock compatibility, and ease of shock removal for longer travel applications.
We are able to optimize leverage rates while pushing the shock forward in the frame. This forward positioning allows for a large range of shock compatibility, decreases stand over height, reduces shock tab sizes, increases water bottle compatibility, and increases downtube clearance.
