SB140 T3 X0 Eagle T-Type 29in Carbon Wheel Mountain Bike
Why We Like The Yeti SB140 T3 X0 Eagle T-Type 29in Carbon Wheels Mountain Bike
Fast, agile, and stable, the SB140 is an all-around bike that is just as content sending it downhill hill as it is cruising on flow tracks. We love the Yeti SB140 for its aggressive geometry, 29-inch wheels, and unique suspension platform. Size-specific seat tube angles ensure we all get an efficient pedaling position, and size-specific chainstays allow us to have a playful and poppy bike, no matter what frame size we are on. At the heart of all Yeti bikes is the Switch Infinity suspension platform, which utilizes a unique translating pivot design that moves up and down through the bike's suspension travel to give us better small bump sensitivity, mid-stroke support, and bottom-out resistance. The SB140's progression curve was updated to a more linear 14 percent, giving us more small bump sensitivity and better mid-stroke support. The final third of its progression curve becomes more progressive as you move through the travel for more bottom-out resistance, meaning we can ride harder, be more comfortable and have more protection from bottoming out the shock on big hits. The Yeti SB140 features a slack 65-degree headtube angle to give us confidence as we smash down technical descents. Yeti revised their frames this year, giving us 34 more millimeters of clearance under the bottom bracket to protect against rock strikes. The Switch Infinity system also received an update, giving us a smaller, more compact design, more durable, corrosion-resistant bearings, floating collet pivot axles for enhanced stiffness, and a new bushing design for greater sensitivity.
The T3 X0 Eagle Transmission AXS build of the Yeti SB140 features top-tier components and Yeti's premium carbon frame. Yeti's TURQ carbon frame utilizes the best carbon fiber to give us a stiffer and lighter frame. SRAM's new X0 Transmission AXS drivetrain gives us the latest technology in the electronic shifting world, sporting a durable design, an overload clutch to automatically realign our derailleur when it takes a hit, and flawless electronic shifting that performs perfectly even under load. A Fox Factory 36 FIT4 fork with 150mm of travel gives us tons of compression and rebound adjustments and is known for its exceptional suspension performance. Fox's Factory Float DPS rear shock is lightweight, supportive, and has compression and rebound adjustments. SRAM's G2 RSC brakes provide us with 4-pistons of power to stop on a dime, and the brake lever has a contact adjust wheel for getting our pistons in the correct position every time. DT Swiss EXC 1501 rims are quality carbon rims paired with DT Swiss's 240 hub, which includes an upgraded 36-tooth Ratchet EXP engagement for quicker power to the wheels. Maxxis DHF and Aggressor tire round out this build giving us the grip and traction we need for aggressive trail riding.
*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.
