The rebel yell of the middle child. Fed a steady diet of super-tech climbs. The SB130 was built to crush the biggest terrain. No trail “too” anything. Point it up or down. Enter a last-minute enduro just for the eff of it. We say no one bike can rule all. But the SB130? One bike that rules.


Long Reach

Puts riders in a balanced position perfectly centered on the bike, ready to tackle the unknown.

150MM Fork

Because Yeti's 130mm of rear suspension outperforms similarly stroked forks and pairs well with their more forward biased position.

Front End Doesn't Wander Climbing

And stays composed when pointed downhill – the rider position remains neutral.

At Home When You're Not

The deeper you go, the higher you climb, the later you brake, the more comfortable SB130 becomes. Bottom line, the term “trail bike” gets used pretty liberally at Yeti.

Low Slung. Long Drop.

Long stroke dropper post capability throughout entire size range — for greater agility.


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.

A Shock Tune Unique To The SB130

Through a process of gathering qualitative data about "feel" from Yeti's athletes and validation through quantitative telemetry data, Yeti were able to push the performance of the SB130. They developed the tune to enhance its mid-stoke and bottom-out control while maintaining ascending efficiency. While the tune is exclusive, the Fox shock it's built from is not, making replacement parts readily available, or further personalization accessible.

Infinite Suspension Capabilities

At the heart of the SB130 suspension design is our 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.
