2016 YETI SB5 enduro
We were able to take our best selling SB5c and modify the carbon fiber layup to produce a pure all-mountain bike at a great value.

2016 YETI SB4.5C
It was only a matter of time before we rolled out our Switch Technology in big wheels. The SB4.5c is optimized for 29" wheels and has a different personality than our other bikes. The pedaling platform is a little stiffer, so out of the saddle climbs feel effortless. Descending, it’s all trail bike — open it up and let the big wheels roll.
