Always reaching for the widest tire you can find? If so, push your limits on our SB5+ offering unparalleled stability and traction. Add 5 inches of ample travel to the equation and you have a bike that is nearly unstoppable. Yeti’s Switch Infinity suspension platform and smart frame design will bring ease to mucky soggy trails, loose gravel and essentially any trail condition you can throw at this bike.
We wanted to bring plus-sized tires into the performance market and couldn’t do it in anything less than our lightest high-quality TURQ carbon frame. The SB5+ TURQ frame comes in at 5.34 LBS (2.42 KG) and brings playfulness to the plus-sized mountain bike world.
There are no flip-chips here to change the bike’s geometry, no multiple wheel sizes, nothing to alter our suspension kinematics. We discovered that the slight changes in tire diameter had a dramatic impact on critical frame properties such as bottom bracket height and mechanical trail. Not wanting to sacrifice any defining ride characteristics by adopting the wheels to fit an existing platform, the SB5+ was born into its own identity in our line.
