While Yeti already revamped their enduro & cross-country bikes in the past week, the new in-between SB140 trail bike might be the most versatile of all. Getting back to the purest definition of a mountain bike for all types of riding – both uphill and back down again – this new trail bike bleeds over to all-mountain capability thanks to bigger wheels, refined suspension, and the latest in do-it-all geometry… 2023 Yeti SB140 carbon 29er trail bike
Just like their SB150 EWS bike became the longer SB160 last week , and the SB115 XC became the more capable SB120 this week, no it’s the trail bike’s turn. But Yeti already had a ripper 130mm 29er & a playful 140mm 27.5 trail bike, so now they smash them together into one 140mm travel 29er SB140 that pairs with a 160mm travel fork in the LR Lunch Ride builds or 150mm forks for the quicker standard builds. What’s new?
Just like the other new bikes, the new SB140 29er gets revised frame shaping with new Switch Infinity V2 suspension updates – with a slightly more linear shock curve that ramps up to 14% progression at the end for a bottomless feel. It’s less of a giant leap aesthetically from the most recent SB130 & SB140 . But the functional upgrades are many!
