Yeti SB5 LR Bike Review

Yeti SB5 LR Bike

Yeti’s SB5 trail bike has been racking up Editors’ Choice awards since the platform was released in 2014. Yet this version is special. It takes the current iteration—a 127mmtravel frame built for 27.5-inch wheels—and adds the same parts preferred by the people who develop and then test Yeti’s bikes on the company’s daily lunch ride near Golden, Colorado (that’s where the LR comes from in the name, btw).

You get a Fox 36 fork with 10 more millimeters of travel (160mm total), a Float DPX2 shock for super tunability, meaty Maxxis 2.5- and 2.3-inch front and rear tires, and oversize 180mm rotors to keep things locked down when you get a little slideways. If you want a Yeti like the ones the Yeti guys and girls ride, this is it.
