The SB165 is a lightweight freeride brawler–a bike made for downright gnarly shenanigans desert freeride lines and massive bike park hits. With deep coil-shock travel and low-slung geometry the SB165 brings utmost confidence for those of us seeking big mountain terrain. We’ve spotted it aboard the podium of a certain famous freeride competition in southern Utah but we’ve also seen it pedaling around our local trails heading for those obscure lines deep in the forest. With 165mm of rear travel and 180mm up front the SB165 makes quick work of drops jumps and white-knuckle chutes. That being said the bike’s low overall weight and efficient Switch Infinity suspension make it a comfortable machine when we’ve got to pedal up 2000ft of vert to reach the gnarly descents. The geometry is long slack and stable with its 63. 5-degree head tube and long wheelbase but a steep 77-degree seat tube makes for a nice forward-biased pedaling position when we need to knock out some miles. *Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
