Yeti Introduces 30th Anniversary SB6c To Kick-Off Third Decade Rider Driven Focus

Press Release // August 26, 2015 (Golden, CO): Yeti Cycles, a ride driven company based in Golden, Colorado, has announced the availability of a limited run of 250 custom SB6c bikes with a limited edition yellow-and- turquoise finish. Custom paint, anniversary graphics and turquoise hardware belies the fact that Yeti’s EWS World Championship winning chassis has been completely redesigned with a new, carbon front triangle with internal routing and 148-mm spaced Boost rear triangle. The new SB6c will be available beginning on September 15, will retail for $9,000USD and comes in five sizes (XS, SM, MD, LG, XL).

“The SB6c was the first pure Enduro bike we introduced with our patented Switch Infinity suspension design,” said Yeti’s President, Chris Conroy. “After a few years of collecting feedback from our team, dealers and riders all over the world, we knew there were a few tweaks that would make a great riding bike even better. With our storied racing heritage, it just made sense to roll out the revised 6c with an anniversary edition.”

The SB6c was designed to excel on the toughest Enduro race tracks in the world and it quickly earned an EWS World Championship under Yeti rider Jared Graves. Designed around Switch Infinity suspension system, the SB6c is massively capable when pointed downhill, but is totally at home when grinding out big days in the backcountry. The SB6c’s six full inches of travel are managed by a FOX Float X CTD rear shock. Switch Infinity suspension improves pedaling on the 6c because it has a firm pedaling platform but doesn’t give up any of the small bump sensitivity riders desire. Yeti has also tuned the kinematics of the Switch Infinity suspension to provide consistent responsiveness throughout the travel, especially when encountering larger, square-edge bumps.

With a head tube angle of just 65.5 degrees and a lengthy top tube, the SB6c features a long and low geometry that is perfect for steep, lumpy terrain and can handle the high speeds with ease. The 6c’s new Boost rear spacing also gives the chassis greater torsional stiffness and responsive handling under load.

The SB6c is the flagship Switch Infinity equipped bike in the Yeti line, which also features the five-inch travel SB5c and, all new SB4.5c, a 29-inch wheeled trail bike.
