SB120 T3 X0 Eagle T-Type Mountain Bike
Why We Like The Yeti SB120 T3 X0 Eagle T-Type Mountain Bike
When the agenda calls for a lightweight ripper capable of handling technical trails but light and efficient enough to put in the miles, the Yeti SB120 is our top choice. From flow trails to technical singletrack, we love the SB120 for its petite and lightweight frame, incredible suspension platform, and aggressive geometry. The SB120 features a 66.5-degree headtube angle, putting us in the perfect position to be capable on the descents while maintaining agility and precise handling. Size-specific chainstays allow us to get a perfectly balanced ride, no matter our size frame. Yeti revised their wishbone link specifically for the Yeti SB120, giving it a more compact, one-piece design that allows for a revised leverage rate, lower standover height, increased room for a water bottle, and more downtube clearance. A more linear, 11-percent progression curve with a high leverage rate gives the SB120 optimal small bump sensitivity and a supportive mid-stroke, allowing us to obtain incredible traction, and have travel to spare when riding hard. Yeti revised their Switch Infinity suspension system this year, upgrading the bearings to be more durable, providing grease ports to make it easier to service, an enhanced bushing design for durability and sensitivity, and the addition of floating collet pivot axles for enhanced stiffness and bearing life.
The T3 X0 Transmission AXS build of the Yeti SB120 incorporates top-tier components with Yeti's premium carbon frame. Yeti's TURQ carbon frame uses the best carbon fiber for the stiffest and lightest frame possible. The SRAM X0 Transmission AXS drivetrain offers us the most advanced technology on the market for electronic shifting, giving us flawless shifting, a durable design, an auto-adjusting overload clutch to ensure our derailleur is protected in the event of an impact, and a hanger-less interface for a modern design that is more durable. Fox Factory suspension gives us top-tier performance, providing us with the Fox Factory 34 fork for exceptional performance on the trail that can be tuned to our preference. The Fox Factory Float DPS shock is lightweight and capable. SRAM's G2 RSC, 4-piston brakes give us all the stopping power we need without the extra weight and also features a contact adjust wheel at the levers to ensure our pistons always have the perfect bite. This build is topped off with Maxxis DHF and Aggressor trail tires fitted on DT Swiss XM1700 aluminum rims to give us a wheelset that excels on the trails.
*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
