Details

Begging for your input, chomping to respond. Flick it, pedal it, pump it to the moon. A stoke-making mutation of cun-focused DNA, blinding proof that less can be a whole lot more. Come out to play. You bet your ass the SB135 is still down.

Dart. Weave. Drift.

There are main lines and race lines. And then there are the completely unexpected lines that require a rider with a different headspace altogether. Riders looking to find the fun love the SB135 for its quick-witted playfulness, agility, and ability to unlock creativity.

Rather than waxing poetic about new school geometry numbers, know this: the SB135 isn’t a one-dimensional play bike ­– it’s at home on singletrack and in the alpine, seeking the side hits just the same. Give it input, and the SB135 energetically responds.

Features:

- Switch Infinity. Recalculated.
Discover the next-generation of translating pivot suspension designs. Setting new expectations for kinematics, longevity, sensitivity, and strength.

- Clearance for What Counts.
Whether you need more room to make shapes or simply want more distance between the bike and yourself, the SB135 has an ultra-low-slung top tube. But we didn’t stop there. To make the best fitting bike for smaller riders, we designed an entirely different frame for the small and extra small sizes. Focused on minimizing stand-over height, maximizing seat postinsertion, and preserving space for a water bottle, we moved the forward shock mount to the downtube, designed an even more compact shock linkage, and made a completely different swing arm, all unique to these two sizes. With the ability to fit riders down to at least 4’11”, the small and extra small SB135s are truly their own engineering feats within the SB135 project.

- Cable Management.
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.

- Threaded BB.
Threaded aluminum bottom bracket shell with integrated ISCG-05 tabs. This critical drivetrain interface is now more durable, cleaner, and easier to service. You asked, and we delivered

- Hangerless Interface
The Hangerless Interface creates the strongest and most precise shifting with Eagle Transmission. It’s also backward compatible – simply thread in a Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH) and run your drivetrain of choice.

- Full Drop. Full Flight.
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 longer dropper posts. Most riders will be able to use 150mm dropper posts on X-Small and Small frames*, 175mm on Medium frames*, and 200 mm+ dropper posts on L-XL frames* for airs like this.

*Dependent on actual seat height on specific bike size.

- Patented Compact Wishbone
The wishbone shock extender makes low-slung top tubes even lower, allows us to tune the leverage ratio while maintaining kinematics, and makes shock removal a cinch. It’s driven by an all-new link that nests inside the mainframe, for a stiffer pivot ­­– and a cleaner look.

- Speed Metal
Gone are the days of pivot bearing on carbon contact. Our new pivot design secures 100% standard-sized cartridge bearings in the frame linkages, attached with precision-machined Floating Collet Axles ­– boosting longevity and reducing tolerance gaps to virtually zero.

If you’re the type of rider who forgets the last time you changed your bearings, chances are they’re still running smooth.

Also:
- 25mm More Downtube Clearance
- Hot Lap Waterbottle Clearance on XS Frames
- 5 Size Specific Geometries
-Floating Collet Pivot Axles Enhance Frame Stiffness and bearing Life

- Leverage Rate
Making turns go boom isn’t fun with your heels dragging in the dirt. But the inconvenient truth is, progressive curves don’t always help maintain composure. A straighter, more linear progression curve means it's easier to tune shocks to pair with suspension kinematics. So we chose a leverage ratio that provides small bump sensitivity and the right amount of progression to maintain mid-stroke support and bottom-out control, without making it impossible to reach full travel.

- Unparalleled Feel. For All Riders.
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.

Geometry Features:

- All the Right Angles
Responsive and designed to feel like an extension of the rider.

- Reach for Movement
Feels about right.

- Low but not Stupid Low
Our lowest BB on a full-suspension bike makes turning a dream.

- Steep Seat Tube Angle
Are we still talking numbers?
