Yeti Cycles brings out new SB130 trail bike

Published September 12, 2018

GOLDEN, Colo. (BRAIN) — Yeti Cycles says it has rounded out its 2019 bike line with the addition of the SB130, which slots in between its SB100 and the recently introduced SB150.

The SB130 is a 29-inch trail bike with 130 millimeters of travel and progressive trail geometry, including a longer reach, steeper seat angle and slacker head angle. The bike is spec'd with a 150mm Fox 36 fork with 44 mm offset. Like the SB100 and SB150, it accommodates a water bottle in the front triangle.

"The SB130 replaces one of our most popular bikes – the SB5.5," said Yeti's president, Chris Conroy. "We updated the geometry, kinematics and created a bike that rules in the high country."

Launched shortly after the SB150, the bike looks similar to its longer travel sibling but has different kinematics and tube profiles. Both bikes feature a new patent-pending shock extender combined with Yeti's Switch Infinity suspension platform. All hardware, aside from the link, is shared between the two models.

Yeti said the SB130 is the final addition to its 2019 bike line, which includes the SB100, SB100 Beti, SB5, SB5 Beti, SB 5 Lunch Ride, SB150 and the SB6.

"Our product team has been crushing it, and we expect this to be a solid year for Yeti," Conroy said. "The feedback from our team riders, ambassadors and internal test team has been overwhelmingly positive, and we're stoked to release the SB130 to the mountain bike community."

All 2019 bikes, starting with the SB100 released in April of this year, are covered by Yeti's no-B.S. Lifetime Warranty.
