Product Description

2017 Yeti Cycles SB6 Turq Mountain Bike Frame

 

Yeti's 2017 SB6 Turq Mountain Bike Frame brings back the boost axles and hard-charging awesomeness we loved in last year's version, trades up for a Fox Float X Factory shock, and sets a new standard for carbon construction to make this frame stand out as a flagship enduro sled that'll bring new meaning to grippy fun through ever gnarlier terrain. This frameset carries Yeti's new Turq designation, which it says represents the most advanced frames it can create at any given time. For the SB6 Turq, that means a more precise carbon layup, molded to reinforce key stress points along the frame without adding bulk and rumored to reduce weight by 265g from the regular version. This process results in strength where you need it, and lightness where you don’t.

The Switch Infinity suspension system is a key driver behind the SB6's versatility. Switch Infinity originally replaced the Switch Link design, which experiences a momentary harshness when rapidly successive hits kept it hovering above the 30% stroke point. The new design has a more linear travel arc, so the eccentric link changes direction without getting caught in that minute dead spot. Of course, 95% of all riders won't ever push the Switch Link hard enough to experience this dead spot, but Yeti (being Yeti) went ahead and fixed it anyway. For those of us who are our own mechanics, Yeti also simplified maintaining the Switch Infinity by including easily accessible grease ports, which do away with the need for time-consuming rebuilds.

Aside from those changes, the two suspension systems are fairly similar. Like the Switch Link, the Switch Infinity slider travels upward under the first phase of compression, when the SB6 is settling into its sag point. As the rear end compresses deeper, the direction changes, and the DH-inspired slider travels down toward the bottom bracket shell to maintain a steady pedaling platform. This change of direction is smoother, without the above-mentioned dead space, but the effect is the same. Deep in the stroke, it works in conjunction with the upper pivot to produce a vertical wheel path that effortlessly flattens big, square-edged impacts.

Yeti's carbon fiber ethos involves maintaining a focus on increased efficiency and decreased weight while dialing the geometry to its signature enduro standards. This involves dropping the head tube angle to a slack 65.5 degrees — down a full degree-and-a-half from Yeti's more trail-minded SB5. That, combined with the long top tube, makes for a long, low ride that can handle steep, lumpy terrain with ease and speed.
