Who it's for

The 160E is for riders who want to compete in (and win) eMTB races, and those who are seeking the fastest trail riding experience yet.

Why you'll love it

You'll love the 160E because it provides blistering speed and an unmatched ride quality by tweaking Yeti's legendary Switch Infinity suspension characteristics to the eMTB platform.

What makes the 160E unique? SIXFINITY.

What took Yeti so long to make the 160E? They wanted to develop the best, most tunable electric mountain bike suspension system yet, and they wanted it to be perfect. Enter SIXFINITY, in the making since 2016.

SIX Bar Linkage

The six bar linkage and the Switch link combine for ultimate tunability and ride performance. Check out the suspension charts below for more info.

fast Fits Fine

SIXFINITY's design allowed Yeti to use short chainstays and fit both the 160mm rear travel and 29 inch wheels for maximum speed. No compromises here.

Stiff chasis

SIXFINITY helps Yeti achieve a stiff, supportive chasis necessary for a race-ready eMTB.

SIXFINITY Progression

Similar to Yeti's Switch Infinity suspension system found on their other bikes, the 160E's SIXFINITY causes the Switch link to rotate up to the inflection point before stopping and rotating down.


SIXFINITY allows the travel to move freely when you aren't pedaling, and offers optimum acceleration, stability, and traction when you are pedaling.


SIXFINITY's anti-rise characteristics gives you great traction, braking efficiency, and predictable handling throughout the travel.

Adjustable Leverage Rate

SIXFINITY allows riders to adjust the leverage rate by adjusting the shock position, all while keeping the geometry, anti-squat, and anti-rise the same.

The stock 30% middle position offers a balanced ride. The 25% position has a more supportive, efficient feel, and the 35% position feels more plush and poppy.
