“RACE BRED.” IT’S NOT JUST A SLOGAN PRINTED ON THE SB150 TOP TUBE. WE’VE BEEN PINNING ON NUMBERS AND PINNING THE THROTTLE SINCE 1985. SO WHEN CHOICES HAD TO BE MADE ON THE SB150, EVERY SINGLE ONE WAS MADE IN THE NAME OF UNBRIDLED SPEED. THE ULTIMATE EXAMPLE OF BREEDING A BIKE TO BEAT THE CLOCK.
The SB150 has progressive enduro inspired geometry. We took what we learned from the SB6 and our Factory team riders and made it low, slack, and long. It is designed for shorter fork offsets, we slackened the "real" head angle and made the seat tube angle way steeper. The reach is also longer with shorter chainstays. What does this mean? All these elements increase the DH prowess and move the rider forward on the bike. But these advantages are not one-sided. The steeper seat angle, short fork offset, and forward riding position also keeps the front wheel on the ground, the power to the pedals and the steering quick and nimble when climbing.
The water bottle fits comfortably inside the front triangle, where you might be used to looking for it. It took considerable effort to accommodate a bottle, optimize standover and meet our kinematic expectations, but we knew it was important to you. So we finally did it.
