The trail-focused Yeti SB130 C1 SLX Mountain Bike finds its footing on trails all over the world regardless of what the trails throw at us. This edition of the SB130 sees slacker where it needs to be so we can ride steeper terrain consequence-free. The bike gets a plethora of enduro-rated parts and components so much so that we’re close to entering our first enduro event on this rig. Though this year of the SB130 doesn’t see new geometry figures or crazy components the bike remains as capable as ever and begs for harsh and technical riding. With 130mm of rearward travel and 150mm of front travel there’s not much we won’t do aboard the SB130.

The big wheels and slack angles mean keeping the speed high is almost too easy but with slack angles we can quickly get ourselves back out of trouble.

Helping out on the descents is the 1230mm wheelbase on a size large and this provides a number that just a few years ago we would’ve seen on downhill bikes. With all these numbers in focus it becomes obvious why we’re taking this trail crusher to dabble in the enduro scene. We can’t go this far without mentioning Yeti’s new-school and ultra-modern infinity linkage system. This system is purpose-built by Yeti to soak up pedal bob and allow for near bottomless suspension when the going gets rough. Kit on the C1 starts with the frame and Yeti’s C1 offers a dependable carbon frameset for a lifetime of riding. Rear suspension sees a change of pace as the SB130 is supported by the new Fox Float Performance X a smaller-sized shock that delive…
