Yeti sb-95 trail bike.

It’s the 29er frame you’ve been waiting for! Switch suspension technology, fast rolling 29” wheels and of course Yeti’s proven fit and feel. Just like every other bike Yeti has produced, the SB-95 is the peak of refinement. Yeti did not just ‘copy and paste’ their Switch suspension technology from their 26” wheeled bikes to a 29” version; they adapted, reengineered and tested it over and over until it was perfectly suited for the bigger wheel. The basics still hold true – super efficient without sacrificing traction and comfort.

The SB-95 starts with a highly engineered alloy tubeset that is beautifully sculpted. At its heart is Switch suspension technology. This ingenious design uses an oversized main pivot that actually contains a second pivot (lower pivot of the swing arm) which is offset within the main. This eccentric mechanism switches direction as the bike moves through its travel creating an optimized wheel path without unexpected spikes or wallows.
