New Yeti SB115 MTB is Designed with Multi-day Racing and Down Country Riding in Mind

If you recall the Yeti Lunchride SB130, you'll know where the roots of this bike grow.

The Yeti SB100 platform is a successful setup for cross country racing and heads-up trail riding, and the brand has now added a little more travel to the bike for burlier multi-day XC races and “down country” adventures. The new SB115 29er utilizes different linkage to add 15mm of rear travel to the bike, coupled with a 130mm fork. If you recall the Yeti Lunchride SB130, you’ll know where the roots of this bike grow.

With its 67.6° headtube angle, 436.7mm chainstays, and 450.6mm reach (size L), the SB115 fits into the short-travel trail bike slot with precision. The 74° effective seat tube angle (size L) and Yeti’s proven Switch Infinity climbing prowess should make this little ripper as fun to climb on as it is to coast downhill.

The C-Series builds start at $4,700 with a Fox Performance 34 fork, DPS Performance shock, a Transfer dropper post, a pair of Shimano 4-piston Deore brakes, and a complete SLX drivetrain. The next step up on the C-Series ladder sells for $4,900 with a SRAM GX drivetrain and G2 R brakes.

SB115 Turq framesets are available for $3,400 if you prefer to build the bike to a precise spec. The T-Series builds begin at $6,300 with Fox Factory suspension, a full XT drivetrain and brake set, and a DT SWISS XM1700 wheelset. The middle tier Turq bike gets a SRAM X01 drivetrain and G2 RSC stoppers for $6900. Finally, SB115 builds top out with a SRAM XX1 drivetrain, G2 Ultimate brakes, and all the Kashima coating for $8,000. Both of the top-shelf builds include options for SRAM AXS drivetrains and droppers, and DT Swiss 30mm carbon wheels.
