Meet the bike in between nothing. Leaving no rider wanting. Master of the climb, the bomb, the rail, and the air. The utterly unequivocal. The rule crusher. The trend buster. No rig can rule all, but this one can absolutely rule. The mountain bike.
TRAIL BIKE? YES, AND...
This is the mountain bike you reach for when the trail is untamed and unrelenting, in both directions. "Trail bike" is a term that gets used pretty liberally in the industry, so we designed the SB140 to be even better suited to go deep and find out what's on the other.
SWITCH INFINITY. RECALCULATED.
Discover the next generation of translating pivot suspension designs. Setting new expectations for kinematics, longevity, sensitivity, and strength.
Internally routed cable tubes with secure closures at entry and exit points eliminate rattles and cable rub. Whether running a mechanical drivetrain and dropper or a wireless setup, cable management is intuitively easy and quiet.
Threaded aluminum bottom bracket shell with integrated ISCG-05 tabs. This critical drivetrain interface is now more durable, cleaner, and easier to service.
If a hanger bending crash occurs, the new Yeti models use the Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH) interface — the industry standard mount for a rear derailleur. The UDH is available in nearly any bike shop, Yeti dealer or not.
As the capability of our bikes continues to increase, so does their ability to run modern-day, full-stroke dropper posts. Our seat tube is shorter to allow for a longer dropper post. Most riders will be able to use 150mm dropper posts on Small frames*, 175mm on Medium frames*, and 200 mm+ dropper posts on L-XXL frames* respectively.
*Dependent on actual seat height on specific bike size.
REFINDED NEW LOOK. STILL DISTINCTLY YETI.
The refined main frame and swingarm silhouette are more than just striking good looks – it's an engineering approach that packages Switch Infinity and shock linkage in a tighter, more efficient frame with added impact clearance. Holistic frame chassis stiffness has increased, along with frame ground clearance.
UNPARALLELED FEEL. FOR ALL RIDERS.
Every rider deserves a frame feel that's tuned for them, regardless of frame size. Over the course of hundreds of virtual simulation comparisons and back-to-back carbon prototype testing, we've refined our carbon layups to deliver consistent torsional stiffness and flex profiles across all frame sizes. The feel is precise yet compliant while structurally balancing light weight and durability.
A SMARTER LEVERAGE RATE.
Designed around a relatively linear progression curve, with slightly more progression at the end of the stroke for the added travel of the bike. SB140 Riders get great small bump sensitivity, an incredibly supportive mid-stroke, and a composed, bottomless feel. It's a progression curve that delivers quality full travel capability, for mountain biking. Other bikes might have more progressive curves. The question is, what for?
PATENTED COMPACT WISHBONE.
Our patented, two-piece wishbone shock extender optimizes leverage rate while pushing the shock forward in the frame. This forward positioning allows for a large range of shock compatibility, decreases stand-over height, reduces shock tab sizes, increases water bottle compatibility, and increases downtube clearance. When it's time for service, shock removal is quick and easy.
Our new pivot designs use 100% standard-sized cartridge bearings secured with precision-machined floating collet axles. All bearings are pressed into the linkage assembly vs the swingarm or front triangle.
MORE COMFORTABLE ON MASSIVE DAYS.
Rather than conjuring up a claim to rationalize the vanilla geometry that dominates other "mid-travel" bikes, we asked how the remarkable feel of the SB130 can become even more capable of tackling a wider range of terrain? The result is a size-specific geometry that puts SB140 riders in a more balanced position for extra spicy trails in every direction.
1. FORWARD BIAS POSTURE
Give racers the room needed to center them on the bike.
2. FRAME REACH FOR RIPPING
Frame reach remains sensibly roomy when running modern short stem lengths, but not ridiculously long to justify a "longer, slacker, lower" claim.
3. SIZE SPECIFIC CHAIN STAYS
Chain stay length increases with frame size, ensuring the rear center of the bike is proportionately correct for riders of all sizes (XS-XXL).
4. SIZE SPECIFIC SEAT TUBE ANGLES
Riders of all sizes stay in a powerful pedal position with seat tube angles that increase with frame size. This makes the transition from seated to standing easier, especially for taller riders.
5. SLIGHTLY HIGHER STACK
A slightly more upright position is more comfortable on big ascents and more capable on big descents. Riders who prefer a more aggressive position can run less stem spacers for a cleaner look.
