It’s time to recalibrate your gray matter with what’s happening in racing today. All it takes is “it’s on!” – number plates not required. Born to naturally crush the climbs, the SB115 is evolved. Deft on the downs. Designed to race. Built to rally.
More Than Added Travel
Crushing souls on the descent is more than half the fun. And a hell of a lot more than half the point. The SB115 has 115 genre killing millimeters of travel, that work harder than ever before.
Across Yeti's line, they have chosen a relatively flat and high anti-squat curve in beginning and mid-section of travel where pedaling commonly occurs a.k.a the pedaling zone.
This creates an efficient pedaling platform through your entire pedaling zone, there is an inflection point where the Switch Infinity link moves down, dropping the anti-squat drastically. Riders are typically not pedaling in this zone, so chain forces have less of an effect on the suspension performance.
Decoupling of the chain forces allows the suspension to work more efficiently to absorb impacts making the feel of a Yeti distinct.
Forward Bias Posture
Gives racers room to stay comfortable over long race days.
An "Appropriate" Frame Reach
Keeping racers agile, able to react to race tactics, and tightly taped courses.
A Low BB
For that “in bike feeling” on the ascent or pushing hard on the way down.
Because Yeti's 115mm of rear suspension outperforms similarly stroked forks and pairs well with their more forward biased geometry.
Multi-stage, multi-day, more involved, higher-speed, the SB115 excels in new-school Trans-XC style racing and riding.
Infinite Suspension Capabilities
At the heart of the SB115 suspension design is Yeti's patented Switch Infinity suspension system. Switch Infinity utilizes a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel providing excellent anti-squat characteristics.
