Why We Like The SB130 CLR GX Eagle Mountain Bike
By taking the trail-taming SB130 and bumping up the front and rear travel, Yeti gives us an absolute weapon of a bike with the SB130 CLR GX Eagle Mountain Bike. The extra travel and slacker angles of Yeti's Lunchride treatment make this a formidable machine for enduro racing and tackling big hits at the bike park. That being said, it retains the nimble handling and lightweight feel that makes it a more practical daily driver than the SB150.
Travel-wise, the SB130 LR gets 137mm in the rear and 160mm in the front, a 7 and 10mm increase over the standard SB130, respectively. This also slackens the head tube for a bit more stability at high speeds, letting us charge harder as we make our way down the mountain. The bike uses Yeti's Switch Infinity suspension platform, which we've always regarded as one of the best-performing options on the market. It remains firm under pedaling without losing sensitivity over bumps, and when it comes time to descend, the travel feels smooth and deep.
Yeti offers two different constructions with its carbon frames, with this bike utilizing the lower level C-series carbon. It's not a bad thing really, it just lets Yeti hit a lower price point at a small cost of a few hundred grams of weight. DT Swiss aluminum wheels are ready for gnarly enduro tracks thanks to their bomber durability, and the Fox Performance 36 fork provides a burly feel for descents. SRAM's GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain keeps us ready for anything with swift shifting and minimal maintenance.
*Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
