The Yeti SB165 announces itself as a brawler of a bike ready to tackle your worst descent. With 165mm travel out back and 180mm up front this bike leaves no excuses for holding back. Equally as impressive, this long travel slayer enables you to pedal to the top and do it all over again.
Darren test rode our Yeti SB165 demo bike and after that knew it was the bike for him. His build features some choice upgrades in all the right places to make sure performance is maximised when possible whilst also pulling off a striking look.
The black carbon of the Turq series frame and under stated decals allow Fox's signature orange factory series upgrades to really pop. The Fox 36 Grip 2 fork up front provides plenty of adjustment so riders can dial in the feel of their fork as desired. Matched with the Fox Factory DHX2 coil rear shock and its bright orange SLS spring the suspension on this bike is some of the best money can buy. Keeping inline with the Fox Factory theme a factory series kashima transfer seat-post was installed.
The bike sports a GX drivetrain for that great eagle range and solid performance, matched well with the powerful Sram Code R brakes. The rest of the bike is completed with a Race Face cockpit, Race Face / DT Swiss wheels, Ergon saddle and of course, Maxxis tyres.
It's really cool to build up these long travel bikes and just get a sense of all the potential they will have when let loose on the trails. Thanks Darren for letting us build such a sweet bike with you!
