A relatively linear progression curve gives riders usable, active travel at 30% sag – a far greater margin than other 120mm travel bikes. The SB120’s small bump compliance delivers incredible traction. Its supportive mid-stroke ensures riders don’t blow through travel when pushing against the suspension in turns or when getting the wheels off the ground. Oh shit moments are handled with ease – the curve has been tuned with increased bottom-out control.
Internally routed cable tubes with secure closures at entry and exit points eliminate rattles and cable rub. Whether running a mechanical drivetrain and dropper or a wireless setup, cable management is intuitively easy and quiet.
Threaded aluminum bottom bracket shell with integrated ISCG-05 tabs. This critical drivetrain interface is now more durable, cleaner, and easier to service.
If a hanger bending crash occurs, the new Yeti models use the Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH) interface — the industry standard mount for a rear derailleur. The UDH is available in nearly any bike shop, Yeti dealer or not.
As the capability of our bikes continues to increase, so does their ability to run modern day, full-stroke dropper posts. Our seat tube is shorter to allow for a longer dropper posts. Most riders will be able to use a 150mm dropper posts on Small frames*, 175mm on Medium frames*, and 200mm+ dropper posts on L-XXL frames*, respectively.
*Dependent on actual seat height on specific bike size.
MEET ULTRA COMPACT EXTENDER.
An all new ultra-compact, minimalist, 1-piece shock extender was designed specifically for the demands of the shorter travel SB120. It optimizes leverage rate while pushing the shock forward in the frame. This forward positioning allows for a large range of shock compatibility, decreases stand over height, reduces shock tab sizes, increases water bottle compatibility, and increases downtube clearance.
MORE BALANCED AT SPEED.
Its nimble reach darts through singletrack. Its steep seat tube angle makes light work of climbs. Its head angle and balanced vertical suspension travel prioritize downhill fun, making it an incredible Trans-Cascadia style race whip. Point is, the SB120’s geometry is so balanced and agile, forgetting how much travel it has on the way up and down is totally possible.
