Details

Upholding a time-tested, race-bred ethos that says nothing should hold a rider back from the sheer joy of untethered speed. Built off one of the most winning race platforms in EWS history, the SB160 is pure race machinery. Honed for more. Be fastest.

From Legacy to Dynasty.

The Yeti/Fox factory team won 49 EWS stages, 11 EWS races, and 1 national series championship aboard the SB150. The SB160 builds momentum on this legacy of excellence. Honed. Refined. Even effing faster.

Features:

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

- The New Silhouette of Speed
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 lightweight and durability.

- 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 and quiet.

- 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.

- Universally Ready
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.

- Patented Compact Wishbone
Our patented, two-piece wishbone shock extender on the SB160 ensures optimal clamping, shock compatibility, and ease of shock removal for longer travel applications.

We are able to optimize leverage rates while pushing the shock forward in the frame. This forward positioning allows for a large range of shock compatibility, decreases standover height, reduces shock tab sizes, increases water bottle compatibility, and increases downtube clearance.

- Speed Metal
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 Balanced at Speed
Our factory team wanted even more confidence at pace. To achieve this, we’ve further refined geometry with a little more reach, rebalanced front and rear centers, and size-specific chainstay and seat tube angles. It’s our most confidence-inspiring geo to date. And it’s optimized by frame size, ensuring athletes of all sizes and styles are in a position that prioritizes speed and efficiency.

- Leverage Rate for Real Speed
Forget what you know — the clock proves more progressive curves aren’t faster. The SB160’s kinematics have been refined for the added travel with increased bottom-out control while maintaining a relatively linear progression curve. Why a linear curve? Athletes experience more predictable damping characteristics throughout the travel. Predictability in a competition setting can make the difference between participating or winning.

Also:

- 25mm more downtube clearance
- 2.6 tire clearance with room to spare
- Floating collet pivot axles enhance frame stiffness and bearing life
- 5 size-specific geometries

Geometry Features:

- Forward Bias Posture
A slightly longer reach provides greater traction while maintaining a centered position.

- Slightly Shorter Seat Tube
Keeps athletes agile when the seat is dropped in turns and steeps.

- 10mm Longer Rear Travel
Delivers slightly more vertical travel out back for less wheel hang-up, carrying greater momentum in the rough.

- DH Tough
High-impact strength carbon layup tuned to go fast and tested to DH standards.
