Product Details

2017 Yeti Cycles SB5.5 XT/SLX Carbon

Yeti’s SB5.5 is where the trail, all-mountain and gravity bike intersect. This lightweight bike eats up grueling technical climbs and hauls going downhill. Forget any preconceived notions about 29ers, thanks to an impeccable frame design, shortened chain stays and aggressive suspension spec, the SB5.5 is easy to maneuver and feels lively and quick. The SB5.5 Carbon series frame is 6.21 lbs and preserves Yeti-performance at a more aggressive price point by using a slightly modified carbon material and different layup. Yeti’s Switch Infinity suspension platform grants you the trail-ruling trinity of deep travel support, small bump sensitivity, and solid climbing. To keep the bike balanced, Yeti used a 160mm-travel fork with 51mm offset combined with a 66.5-degree head angle. Outfitted with a Shimano XT/SLX drivetrain, the SB5.5 Carbon is ready for park days and backcountry exploits. Yeti rounded out the bike with Fox Performance suspension, the aggressive Maxxis Minion DHF and Aggressor tires, and Shimano brakes with monster 180mm rotors. The final touch is a burly Race Face stem and Turbine seatpost dropper.
