Yeti Cycles is the latest to follow the long-travel 29er trend, announcing the SB150 enduro bike today.

The SB150 is an all new model for the Yeti lineup. Their longest travel 29-inch bike previously was their popular, enduro-ready bike, the SB5.5, offering 140mm of frame travel and a 160mm travel fork.

The Yeti SB150 will, as the name implies, come with 150mm of travel, 10mm more travel than the SB5.5. The SB150 bumps up the fork spec as well, with 170mm of travel up front.

The SB150 uses Yeti’s patented Switch Infinity design, but features a shock extender to allow the rear shock to be moved upward on the frame. The upshot: a water bottle now fits inside the front triangle. The frame also has modern touches like internal routing and Boost spacing in the rear, but still keeps a press fit bottom bracket.

Geometry has also been modernized to today’s standards. The head tube angle is placed at 64.5-degrees, the seat tube is at a steep 77-degrees, and the chain stay length is a short 433mm.

A frame alone will set buyers back $3,800 and comes with a Fox Factory X2 shock.

A complete build starts at $5,200 and includes the lower-grade carbon frame, DT Swiss wheels, a RaceFace Aeffect cockpit, SRAM Guide R brakes, a SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain, and a Fox Performance 36 fork and DPX2 shock.

The high-end build tops out at $9,500 and includes a Turq series carbon frame, SRAM Code RSC brakes, Yeti carbon handlebars, and a SRAM XX1 Eagle drivetrain.

The SB150 is available now. Learn more on the Yeti website.
