Yeti’s New SB95 29er Trail Bike

By:

| All-Mountain

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
Race (XT):$4500
Pro (XTR): $6150
