Yeti Adds The New SB130 29er Trail Bike To the Lineup

...

Just a few weeks after releasing the SB150, Yeti has added a short-travel bike to their line as well, the SB130.

As the name implies, the rear travel is 130mm. The SB130 comes with a 150mm fork, though, planting it firmly in the trail bike category.

The SB130 of course utilizes the Yeti Switch Infinity suspension platform.

The geometry features a 65.5-degree head angle, with a 77-degree effective seat angle.

Like the SB150, the SB130 uses a shock extender to move the rear shock up in order to fit a water bottle inside the front triangle, rather than on the bottom of the down tube. The SB130 also maintains a pressfit bottom bracket.

The Yeti SB130 comes in black, turquoise of course, and if that’s not enough, an even darker turquoise called spruce.

Yeti has removed the SB4.5 and the SB5.5 from their website, which leads us to believe the SB130 and SB150 are their replacements.

Pricing starts at $3,500 for a frame set.

The base level build costs $5,200 for a SRAM GX drivetrain, Fox suspension front and rear, and SRAM Guide R brakes.

The high-end build is priced at $9,200 and includes Fox suspension, a SRAM XX1 Eagle drivetrain, and SRAM Guide RSC brakes.
