The NEW Yeti SB165

The new long-travel rig spec’d with coil shock and lifetime warranty has landed.

Yeti Cycles have introduced an all-new platform for aggressive riders – the 27.5″ SB165. Like the SB130 and SB150 models released last year, the SB165 features progressive geometry and all-new kinematics.

With 165mm of suspension in the rear and 180mm FOX Factory Grip 2 damper up front, the SB165 is the slackest sled in Yeti’s line. The progressive geometry features a longer reach, steeper seat angle (77 degrees) and a slacker head angle (63.5 degrees) combined with a shorter offset fork. Tuned for a coil or high-volume air shock, the SB165 is the most progressive bike in their line.

The SB165 T2, Yeti’s most popular kit, is spec’d for steep descents and technical, big consequence riding – 200mm rotors and SRAM Code RSC brakes, custom DT Swiss EX 1700 wheels are stiff and durable, and the OneUp Bash Guide keeps it all together in rough terrain. It has water bottle brackets in the main frame, internal routing and an optional shuttle protector. Optional, because some people might just leave the truck at home from now on.

Yeti SB165 Key Features:

  • 63.5 Degree Head Angle
  • 77 Degree Seat Angle
  • 180 Front Travel
  • 165mm Rear Travel
  • Bottle Bosses
  • Clearance for 2.6” tyres
  • Lifetime frame, swingarm and switch link guarantee
  • Choice of XT or Sram on T-series models (T1 Build is XT, T2 Build is Sram)

The SB165 and all 2019 (or newer) bikes are covered by Yeti’s no-BS Lifetime Warranty and will be available to order online very soon.
