A CAPABLE 29ER DESIGNED TO EAT THE UPHILL AND DEVOUR THE DOWNS.
Nothing climbs like a 29-er and the SB4.5 is no exception. Add on a Shimano XT 11×46 rear cassette and you have yourself a relentless ascender. When the trail goes down, the SB4.5 Carbon XT/SLX Fox Performance suspension comes alive atop Yeti’s Switch Infinity platform.
Yeti Cycles admit that it was only a matter of time before they rolled out their Switch Technology in big wheels and with a full Carbon Fibre frame and sharing the same DNA as the other bikes in the SB range we’re sure the new SB4.5c is going to be a popular ride. 114mm (4.5”) of rear wheel travel, internal cable routing and a Boost rear end make the SB4.5c possibly the ultimate 29” trail bike.
Taking their Switch Infinity suspension platform Yeti tweaked the suspension curve to give the bike a stiffer suspension platform so out of the saddle climbs feel effortless and the bike carries speed with maximum efficiency. Once you have smashed the uphill then point the SB4.5c down again and smile as it’s trail bike handling characteristics take over and you’re able to open it up letting the big wheels roll.
The T-Series is Yeti’s flagship carbon and the C-Series is a slightly heavier carbon but visually looking the same with only a 300g weight penalty and same Yeti quality! Amazing value for money!

Utilising the new patented Switch Infinity Translating Pivot that ‘switches’ direction as the bike moves through its travel, Yeti are able to control the bikes suspension perfectly throughout its entire suspension stroke. This results in confidence inspiring performance and amazing trail feel. As the bike starts to cycle through its travel the main pivot translates upwards along two Kashima coated shafts to create a rearward axle path. This movement provides excellent anti-squat and optimum pedalling performance while maintaining a crisp pedal stroke. Housed on a sliding carrier the pivot then ‘Switches’ direction as the bike continues through its travel and the Switch Infinity link translates downwards to give a bottomless feel and stop any chain force adversely affecting the suspension performance out on the trail.
The evolution of Yeti’s Switch Link Technology is a relatively simple one as Switch Infinity offers a lighter, stronger system engineered by FOX from proven suspension components designed and tested to withstand the worst riding conditions. Kashima coated stanchions offer low friction and durability while the seals and bushings are borrowed from FOX’s off-road racing division. After months of trail and dyno testing in all conditions the system has been found to be worthy enough to be “Enabled by FOX” sealing its high performance and quality.
