Yeti Cycles says it has rounded out its 2019 bike line with the addition of the SB130, which slots in between its SB100 and the recently introduced SB150.
The SB130 is a 29-inch trail bike with 130 millimeters of travel and progressive trail geometry, including a longer reach, steeper seat angle and slacker head angle. The bike is spec’d with a 150mm Fox 36 fork with 44 mm offset. Like the SB100 and SB150, it accommodates a water bottle in the front triangle.
“The SB130 replaces one of our most popular bikes – the SB5.5,” said Yeti’s president, Chris Conroy. “We updated the geometry, kinematics and created a bike that rules in the high country.”
Launched shortly after the SB150, the bike looks similar to its longer travel sibling but has different kinematics and tube profiles. Both bikes feature a new patent-pending shock extender combined with Yeti’s Switch Infinity suspension platform. All hardware, aside from the link, is shared between the two models.
