Yeti turned quite a few heads with the introduction of the SB66 and their new Switch Technology linkage. Now, the SB95 is drawing attention, which takes the same linkage and applies it to a 29-inch platform. The pedal-friendly linkage, paired with a relatively slack geometry (68.5-degree head angle) should make for a formidable all-day mile-muncher.
The Switch linkage relies on an eccentric pivot that actually changes direction mid-travel
The SB95 uses a tapered, inset headset to allow for the lowest stack height possible
The through-axle rear end utilizes a chip system in the dropouts to allow for compatibility with nearly every rear axle standard
Yeti’s welds are a thing of beauty
The SB95 should be available in early February, expected pricing is as follows:
Enduro (X-7, X-9): $3500
Pro (XTR): $6150
