YETI SB5.5 TURQ SERIES 2017

Tried and tested under the likes of EWS champion Richie Rude and our in-house test team, this lightweight bike eats up grueling technical climbs and hauls going downhill. Forget any preconceived notions about 29ers, thanks to an impeccable frame design, shortened chain stays and aggressive suspension spec, this bike is easy to maneuver and feels lively and quick on the descents.

The SB5.5 TURQ Series is designed to be burly, responsive, and lively. Built to be strong enough to handle team rider Richie Rude’s speed and brute force, but agile enough to accommodate Cody Kelly’s unmistakable style, the SB5.5 TURQ series is redefining 29ers as we know them. Offered in two colors with three spec kits.

The bike’s 17.2 inch chainstays supporting the 29er wheel platform strike an optimal balance of stability and maneuverability. To achieve this shortened chainstay designers eliminated the front derailleur mount and utilized a Boost rear spacing, but still keept true to Yeti’s classic long geometry. To balance the bike’s front end, we chose to use a long travel 51mm offset fork combined with a 66.5 degree head angle. This allowed us to precisely tune the bike’s mechanical trail and wheelbase.
