MASTER OF THE GNARNIVERSE. BOLD CLAIM. THE SB165 WAS CREATED TO GET AFTER WHATEVER YOU’RE GETTING AFTER. THE SLACKEST SLED IN OUR LINEUP. WITH KINEMATICS TUNED FOR A COIL-SHOCK. AT HOME OUTSIDE THE TAPE AND TRUSTED ON THE LINES WHERE MISTAKES CAN’T HAPPEN. THE SB165 ALREADY HAS YOU COVERED.
At the heart of the SB165 suspension design is our patented Switch Infinity suspension system. Switch Infinity utilizes a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel. This provides excellent anti-squat characteristics for superior pedaling performance and ideal suspension characteristics as it gets deeper into the travel.
At home outside the tape, the SB165 is tuned for a coil or high-volume air shock. At 27.5% progression, this is the most progressive bike in our line. That translates into great small bump sensitivity on the front end and a bottomless feel when you're sending it deep.
The SB165 is built tough. The frame meets Yeti DH testing standards, well beyond what others do for a 165mm trail bike. This thing will last for a lifetime, but we gave you a warranty to match just for good measure.
Internally tunneled cable routing allows for clean lines and a quiet, rattle-free ride. It also makes servicing your bike quick and easy.
The SB165 employs an integrated headset which allows for a lower overall stack height and cleaner carbon layup. The cleaner carbon layup means there are no aluminum inserts and less material in the headset juncture. This all leads to a lighter, stronger front triangle.
