    SB5+ 2.6 T-Series GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike

    Yeti's SB5+ has the same 5-inches of Switch Infinity rear travel as their acclaimed SB5 trail bike, and shares similar geometry to this ultra-capable trail ripper, too. But with additional clearance for 2.6 to 3.0-inch high-volume tires, the SB5+ is eager to venture into chunky terrain and loose surfaces that leave the standard model hung up in the dust… or sand, or snow, or mud. This SB5+ 2.6 T-Series GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike is an in-house build we've put together with a solid mix of components and some 2.6-inch trail rubber, a width that we feel strikes a good balance between the precision of 2.4 - 2.5in tires and the rock-crawling traction of true plus tires. It's a bike that can handle virtually any trail, and with Fox Suspension paired with SRAM's GX Eagle group you'll enjoy a plush ride while having the right gear for every pitch.

    The SB5+ features a few geometry tweaks that enable it to ride as a true plus-bike, with ample clearance for 3.0in tires to dominate loose banked corners and precarious rock gardens. While overall frame geometry stayed quite consistent between the SB5 and the SB5+, it's notable that the rear triangle saw a major redesign with elevated chainstays that allows for increased rigidity and tire clearance. Still maintaining short and snappy a rear end, the elevation of the chainstays simply takes them up and out of the way with an arc that increases clearance space while keeping the stays at 17.2-inches for quick power transfer and nimble handling.

    A Yeti wouldn't be a Yeti without their patented Switch Infinity suspension platform providing that characteristically-smooth ride quality both up and down the mountain. It's up there among the best designs we've ridden, made so by the translating main pivot that slides along two Kashima-coated stanchions, switching directions as you move through the travel for optimal suspension performance at any given point. This Switch Infinity link moves upward in the initial travel to provide ideal anti-squat characteristics, resulting in a superior pedaling platform that doesn't sacrifice small-bump compliance on technical climbs. Further into the travel the link moves back downward, dropping the anti-squat and decoupling chain forces from the suspension which allows the rear shock to better absorb impacts. Essentially, Switch Infinity is buttery smooth throughout the entire travel, inspiring confidence on technical descents while staying very efficient on the climbs and preserving your energy with minimal suspension bob.

    A complete package should pair a high-performance frame with the top level materials, so Yeti offers the SB5+ frame in their high-modulus Turq carbon fiber. Weighing in at a miniscule 5.34lbs, the frame has a flawless balance between compliance and stiffness, with reliable manufacturing techniques that lead to minimal resin pooling, strong joints without excessive materials, and unsurpassable durability. Turq-level carbon is the cream of the crop, and on the SB5+ it feels smooth, solid, and aggressive as it tackles every trail you point it down.
