The 2021 Yeti SB115

The fastest trail bike and the most capable XC bike, all in one

Have you ever asked yourself something like:

“Should I buy a cross country racing bike or a fast and fun trail bike?”

Yeti’s answer: “Why not both?”

You’d probably say, “Yeah well I can’t exactly go out and buy two brand new bikes right now.”

Enter the new SB115. Now you don't have to.

So what makes the SB115
such an innovative genre-bender?

Yeti has taken the main design of the SB100, their purebred short travel XC racing bike, and turned up the rowdiness so you get the best of both worlds.

On race day, the SB115 absolutely crushes climbs and is unbeatable on descents. It’s super responsive and erases little mistakes so the line you choose becomes the fastest way down. 

More control and more speed means more wins.

When you’re not on the course, the SB115 makes every millimeter of travel count, and makes for a killer trail bike that’s fun to whip around and pop up in the air. 

It is a Yeti after all.

Let's dive into the details...

Designed for modern XC racing

The rigors of cross country racing are getting tougher every year.

Longer, multi-stage events coupled with rougher terrain add a new element of difficulty that takes a serious toll on riders.

The SB115 goes a step further than the SB100, and is designed to excel in these extra demanding situations, all while providing a fun, natural Yeti feel when you’re out for a joy ride.

More rear wheel travel

The most notable difference for serious XC racers and trail riders comes from the 115mm of rear travel. To accomplish this, Yeti altered their Switch Infinity rocker link to accommodate a shock with a longer stroke. 

The Switch system still sits safely inside the frame like on the SB100, but the changes for 2021 allow the geometry to remain dialed for epically fast races.

The added travel helps provide comfort and control on grueling courses where hardtails just rattle your bones. Less fatigue on the body means you’re free to transfer that energy towards finishing first.

Plus, when race day is over and you’re just out for a good time, Yeti’s suspension system makes the bike feel much more fun, poppy, and capable than 115mm would suggest. Yeti rider Joey Schusler has said, “I’ve had to remind myself I’m not riding a SB130.”

130mm fork

The SB115 adds another 10mm of travel from the SB100 design, bringing 130mm of terrain-crushing suspension to the front end.

Yeti riders have noted that while the SB100 is definitely capable, it requires a higher level of precision when navigating tougher terrain. Geoff Kabush went on to say that the SB115 allows him to power through gnarly sections without worrying so much about being perfect.

This bike smooths out the course, and smooth is fast.

Efficient, Balanced, & Fun

The SB115’s geometry keeps the bike agile and responsive so you can rocket up climbs and navigate tight turns. The 74 degree seat angle keeps you in an efficient pedaling stance and the rear shock doesn’t work against you thanks to a high and flat anti-squat curve.

The 67.6 degree headtube angle is just a fraction slacker than the SB100 and offers the perfect balance between nimble handling and downhill control. Heading up, the bike feels punchy and quick. Pointed down, the SB115 feels confident and stable enough to have a blast on steep, rough trails.

While this bike is bred to win the most intense cross country races out there, it’s plenty capable enough for ripping up your locals trails, too.

SB115 Build Kits

Kit Upgrades

The C2 build kit can be upgraded to a SRAM AXS drivetrain.

The T1 kit can be upgraded with DT SWISS carbon wheels, and the T2 and T3 kits can be upgraded with AXS, carbon wheels, or both.

"T" stands for TURQ, Yeti's highest-end carbon fiber that provides the absolute best stiffness-to-weight ratio, and overall durability and performance that Yeti can make. 

C/series carbon is more affordable and still incredibly good, just not quite as light as TURQ.
