2018 Yeti SB5 LR

2018 Yeti SB5 LR

AKA the Lunch Ride SB5.

Yes, you read that correctly. This special edition is called the ‘Lunch Ride’. Why? According to Yeti: “This is the rig that the Yeti guys ride when they knock off at 11:30am each day and go and ride in the Colorado mountains.”

Psst… Yeti’s EWS team actually chose the SB5 LR for the Rotorua and Tasmania stops of the Enduro World Series this year.

Also available in black if you’re colour blind

Built from ‘Turq’ carbon, it’s sort of a beefed-up but not OTT version of the regular SB5. 160mm Fox 36 fork instead of a Fox 34. Fox DPX2 piggyback rear shock instead of a Fox DPS. SRAM Eagle X01 drivetrain instead of something Shimano.

Claimed weight of 26.5lbs. Price tag of… £7099.00
