Yeti Cycles releases new SB130

Yeti Cycles launched the new SB130 today.

Their new 29er features 130mm of rear travel and is designed to excel in big terrain.

The switch infinity suspension is improved with new kinematics and more progressive geometry and the 77-degree seat tube angle and big wheels make it an unapologetic climber.

The bike also has slightly shorter chainstays, slack headtube angle, long reach and a 44mm offset fork.

The seat angle is 77 degrees and the head angle is 65.5 degrees, one degree steeper than the SB150.

The SB130 has the same longer reach as SB150, and the bike is designed to run with a short stem and has a shorter, 44mm offset fork set at 150mm.

The wheel size is 29 inches and the material is T-Series or C-Series Carbon Fibre.

It accommodates a water bottle in the mainframe and all 2019 bikes, starting with the SB100 release in April of this year, will be covered with lifetime warranty.
