The Yeti SB115 is quite possibly the most capable cross country / downcountry bike on the market. With the same pedaling platform found on Yeti's trail and enduro bikes, you can be sure the SB115 has similar characteristics, but is much more efficient on the climbs.
With the same front and rear triangle as its predecessor the SB110, the SB115 rocks a new link and longer stroke shock to give the bike a little more room for playing.
For anyone who spends most of their time on cross country to less aggressive enduro trails, this bike is the perfect choice. Don't be fooled by the 115 millimeters of rear travel, for the Switch Infinity link makes this feel closer to competitors 130 millimeter bikes.
You will notice the SB115 rocks an extremely clean cockpit compared to other crosscountry bikes on the market. Because of the Switch Infinity linkage design, the bike does not need lock out cables for the fork or shock. We find that all Yetis preform best when the suspension is run open for it allows the bike to do what the engineers designed it to do.
