2017 Yeti Cycles SB6 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike


Carrying over the boost axles and burly rowdiness of last year’s SB6, the 2017 Yeti Cycles SB6 Turq X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike ups the ante with an even higher standard for carbon construction and SRAM’s unmatched 12-speed X01 Eagle drivetrain. The Turq designation represents what Yeti claims is its most advanced frame construction, which for this bike means a more precise carbon layup molded to reinforce key stress points without adding bulk. Turq is claimed to reduce weight by 265g over the regular SB6, imbued with strength where you need it and an all-around weight reduction.

The Switch Infinity suspension system is the key driver behind the SB6’s versatility. Switch Infinity originally replaced the Switch Link design, which experiences a momentary harshness when rapidly successive hits kept it hovering above the 30% stroke point. The new design has a more linear travel arc, so the eccentric link changes direction without getting caught in that minute dead spot. Of course, 95% of all riders won’t ever push the Switch Link hard enough to experience this dead spot, but Yeti (being Yeti) went ahead and fixed it anyway. For those of us who are our own mechanics, Yeti also simplified maintaining the Switch Infinity by including easily accessible grease ports, which do away with the need for time-consuming rebuilds.

Outside of those changes, the two suspension systems are fairly similar. Like the Switch Link, the Switch Infinity slider travels upward under the first phase of compression, when the SB6 is settling into its sag point. As the rear end compresses deeper, the direction changes, and the DH-inspired slider travels down toward the bottom bracket shell to maintain a steady pedaling platform. This change of direction is smoother, without the above-mentioned dead space, but the effect is the same. Deep in the stroke, it works in conjunction with the upper pivot to produce a vertical wheel path that effortlessly flattens big, square-edged impacts.

Yeti’s carbon fiber ethos involves maintaining a focus on increased efficiency and decreased weight while dialing the geometry to its signature enduro standards. This involves dropping the head tube angle to a slack 65.5 degrees—down a full degree-and-a-half from Yeti’s more trail-minded SB5. That, combined with the long top tube, makes for a long, low ride that can handle steep, lumpy terrain with ease and speed.
