Compare 2023 Yeti SB140 29 Builds!

Let’s Compare the 2023 Yeti SB140 29 Builds – Lunch Ride and Standard in both Turq and C-Series!

SB140 29 Lunch Ride vs SB140 29

Across all kits the SB140 Lunch Ride features an additional 10mm of fork travel as well as a Float X reservoir shock.

The slightly longer fork provides a bit slacker headtube angle, slightly taller bottom bracket and a tiny bit longer wheel base. This allows the Lunch Ride to be a bit more relaxed at big speeds in burly terrain.

The Turq Series SB140 Lunch Ride forks feature the GRIP2 damper with both high and low speed rebound as well as high and low speed compression controls. This allows a lot of fine tuning, although it doesn’t have the three position on-the-fly Open, Mid, Firm switch the FIT4 damper has.

MOST, not all, but most, riders gravitate to the Lunch Ride with its more tuneable, robust suspension. Now, fork dampers can be swapped down the line as well as travel adjusted – so it’s not like buying one or the other pigeon holes the SB140 rider.

Similarly – MOST, not all, but most – C-Series riders take advantage of the Factory series upgrade from Yeti at time of purchase to upgrade the C-Series stock Performance GRIP fork and Performance DPS (non-lunch ride) or Performance Float X (lunch ride) rear shock.

Not sure which is right for you? Well let our team help you define what attributes of your riding, terrain, aspirations, and ground speed would lean you towards the standard SB140 or the SB140 Lunch ride in any of the available Turq or Carbon series builds.

The Yeti SB140 and Yeti SB140 LR are available in 4 colors: Turquoise, Raw Carbon, Sangria and Sage. Yeti offers the SB140 and SB140 Lunch Ride in 3 T-Series Kits T4, T3, T1 and 2 C-Series Kits C2 and C1.
*shown in T4 Lunch Ride configuration above

Yeti was going to be hardpressed to improve on the game changing SB130 – but the attention to detail dialing in the new SB140 and SB140 Lunch Ride prove the hard work was worth it!

More than an additional 10mm of travel the Yeti SB140 29er has a refined linkage for improved mechanical suspension control. The updates to the linkage and shock location allow lower standover, more room for water bottles while still allowing the downtube to bottom bracket box connector to be raised for better ground clearance.

The 29″ SB140 is available in a larger size run – Small through XX-Large – with size specific geometry including size specific rear triangles with modified chainstay lengths per size!

Yeti SB140 Frame Color Options Turquoise Raw Carbon Sangria Sage

What’s updated on the SB140 29er?

Is it like a SB130 with a Lunch Ride Shock? Sort of. But better in a lot of ways!

The new Yeti features improved Switch Infinity V2 Assembly on the Turq series builds and frames.

The downtube to bottom bracket interface has been angled up slightly for improved clearance.

SRAM UDH (Universal Derailleur Hanger) allows a stiffer rear end with the new 55mm chainline.

Threaded Bottom Brackets.

The 29″ SB140 Lunch Ride offers a 65 degree headtube angle with a 77 degree effective seat tube angle. The SB140 29er has a slightly steeper headtube angle (due to the 10mm shorter travel fork spec’d) at 65.4 degrees. The effective seat tube angle also is steeper by a half degree compared to the SB140 LR.

Yeti SB160 Linkage Details Pressed Standard Bearings

SB140 Linkage

One of the most notable updates to the Yeti linkage on the SB140 from a usability and user-servicable standpoint is the spec and location of the bearings.

Standard sized cartridge bearings, pressed into the linkage, instead of the front or rear triangle mean that if you need to replace a bearing it’s a far less intimidating process.

With Yeti’s unbeatable frame warranty, being able to freshen bearings or even full linkage without messing with press fits in carbon? Love it.

SB140 Linkage Updates & Improvements

Yeti’s marketing uses a pretty fitting tagline for the SB140: THE MOUNTAIN BIKE. And frankly having owned a SB130 from the launch till mid 2022 I’ll tell you that I believe them.

The advantages of the bike being designed around the 140mm rear travel from the start, compared to the “long shock” Lunch Ride on the SB130, mean that the leverage ratios have been fine tuned from design, through testing into production. This allows the rear shock to be tuned to improve the feel as the bike dips deep into the travel.

The Switch Infinity package provides riders with a lot of trail pop, or free speed when you pump the trail through corners and dips. You know when your friend on the Yeti just kind of disappears in the corners without pedaling? Well – now you know one of the secrets…

The 29″ SB140 also benefits from shock technology’s recent progression. A better understanding of what they need leverage wise to maximize performance from their air chambers. More time to perfect the damper to control the compressoin and rebound circuits. When you’re not changing shocks yearly the experience pays off. You can see that in the evolution of top tier frame designs like the Yeti.

2023 Yeti SB160 Frame Design Improvements

29″ SB140: Yeti Frame Developments

(center) Threaded bottom bracket. Sounds minor? Well, no, not in my book! Threaded bottom brackets are available in a wider range of price (and performance) points. They’re generally easier and less intimidating to change. They tend to creak less although BikeCo’s frame prep service addresses a lot of that anyhow…

(right) SRAM UDH – Universal Derailleur Hanger. Easier to source parts when you have that big moment on a trip and don’t want to miss the next day’s riding. The UDH also allows for a 55mm chainline which produces a stiffer, better tracking rear end.

(left) Improved cable management “stops” are designed to help minimize cable movement keeping the new Yeti quieter even at speed!

The Yeti SB140 T-Series is spec’d with a 150mm travel FOX Factory 36 FIT4 with a 3 position “on-the-fly” Open, Mid and Firm Adjustment.

The Lunch Ride SB140 features a 160mm travel FOX Factory GRIP2 fork with high and low speed adjustments on both rebound and compression.

The 150mm fork is also available as a GRIP2 damper for riders looking for the additional tuning capacity.

The Carbon, or C-Series SB140 and SB140 LR are spec’d with the FOX Performance 36. 150mm for the SB140 and 160mm for the SB140 LR.

C-Series builds can be upgraded to Factory Suspension at time of purchase!

Turq Series Lunch Ride Fork: FOX Factory 36 GRIP2 160mm

Air Spring & Volume Spacers

The FOX 36 provides riders a range of setup options using air spring as well as volume spacers.

Suggested sag is 15% for a firm feel and 20% for a plush fork. On the stock 160mm setup 15% equals 24mm of sag. 20% will use 32mm of sag.

Volume Spacers

The 160mm FOX 36 is factory spec’d with 1 volume spacers (bike manufacturers may or may not change this). The 160mm fork can carry a maximum of 6 volume spacers.

Do not install more volume spacers than the FOX advises. Installing more than the maximum volume spacers will result in  product damage and potential for injuries, etc.

GRIP2 High and Low Speed Rebound Control

FOX 36 GRIP2 Rebound Controls

The GRIP2 damper provides both Low (LSR) and High (HSR) rebound controls.

The addition of the High Speed or HSR control provides increased rebound control to account for the higher PSI produced by aggressive or heavier riders.

Typically riders will adjust LSR, Low Speed Rebound, to suit riding style and taste and refer to FOX’s guide for the appropriate HSR, High Speed Rebound, pairing.

FOX GRIP2 High and Low Speed Compression Controls

FOX GRIP2 Compression Controls

The FOX GRIP2 damper provides Low and High speed compression controls to fine tune support.

Compression circuits hydraulically damp (or slow) the fork’s input assisting the air spring in providing appropriate mid-stroke and bottom out feel.

Low Speed Compression helps provide mid-stroke support. This allows a bike to ride taller in the travel in cornering while resisting brake dive, rider weight shift and other slow shaft speed inputs.

High Speed Compression works to fine tune bottom out feel as well as other high shaft speed inputs also known as square edge bumps. Example: if you sprint straight into a curb you’re likely to engage the High Speed Compression even if you’re not using full travel. This is due to the speed of the shaft moving oil to compensate for the hit.

Turq Series Fork: FOX Factory 36 FIT4 150mm

Air Spring & Volume Spacers

The FOX 36 provides riders a range of setup options using air spring as well as volume spacers.

Suggested sag is 15% for a firm feel and 20% for a plush fork. On the stock 150mm setup 15% equals 22mm of sag. 20% will use 30mm of sag.

Volume Spacers

The 150mm FOX 36 is factory spec’d with 2 volume spacers (bike manufacturers may or may not change this). The 150mm fork can carry a maximum of 7 volume spacers.

Do not install more volume spacers than the FOX advises. Installing more than the maximum volume spacers will result in  product damage and potential for injuries, etc.

Marzocchi Z1 Coil Rebound Adjuster

FOX 36 FIT4 Rebound Control

The FIT4 damper provides Low rebound control (LSR).

There are 10 clicks of adjustability on the FOX FIT4 rebound.

With the updated fork architecture riders can also utilize the GRIP2 damper in the FOX 36. Riders who prefer the option of High and Low Speed Rebound should investigate the GRIP2 (more on this below!)

FOX FIT4 Compression Controls

FOX FIT4 Compression Controls

The FOX FIT4 has a 3 position “on-the-fly” switch with Open, Medium and Firm compression settings. (shown in blue on the image above)

The FIT4 also offers riders 22 clicks of low speed compression adjustment in the OPEN mode. (the black dial in the center of the damper)

GRIP2 Upgrade: riders looking at the GRIP2 damper will not have the “on-the-fly” switch but gain a Low and High Speed Compression adjustment.

Turq Lunch Ride Stock Rear Shock: FOX Factory Float X

Air Spring & Volume Spacers

The spec’d Fox Float Factory DPS is the most technical single can shock on the market

SAG is adjusted by PSI – typically Down-Country / XC riding styles gravitate to 25% sag.

Volume Spacers

Volume spacing provides fine tuning options to support the air spring.

By adding volume spacers, thus reducing the volume, you increase the air spring’s ramp rate for improved bottom out support and pop.

Conversely removing volume spacers produces a more linear feel as the air has more volume during shock compression per mm of travel.

Do not install more volume spacers than the FOX advises. Installing more than the maximum volume spacers will result in  product damage and potential for injuries, etc.

Float X Tuning Guide Here (opens in new tab)

FOX Float X Rebound Control

FOX FLOAT X Rebound Controls

Low Speed Rebound is controlled on the red knob shown above.

As your ground speed increases you will “speed up” your rebound setting to allow the fork to reset for the next obstacle more quickly.

Heavier riders tend to require “more” rebound control to make up for the higher piston PSI to keep the bike settled.

Not 100% sure on suspension? No problem. When you buy a bike from BikeCo.com we are here to help you dial it in and then we work with our clients to fine tune and adjust the setup as their riding changes and ground speeds increase.

Fox Float X Compression Controls

FOX Factory X Compression Controls

The FOX Factory Float X provides 2 compression controls.

The blue dial above offers 11 clicks of low speed compression control. The low speed compression will help riders fine tune available support into corners or terrain. Paired with volume spacing riders can also adjust bottom out compression and feel for a more progressive, poppy, shock.

FOX Float X 2 position clockable Firm Mode

Above is the 2 position lever actuated Open & Firm settings (also called a climb switch). This is a quick compression control riders may use on long climbs, however, many riders prefer the Open position on most terrain.

Yeti SB140 C-Series Shock Spec

The Yeti C-Series are spec’d with the FOX Performance Float DPS rear shock.
C-Series Lunch Ride bikes are spec’d with the FOX Performance Float X rear shock.

FOX Performance DPS

The Performance series FOX rear shocks provide adjustments via PSI, air volume spacing, low speed rebound and a typically a “climb” compression switch.

The climb switch on Performance shocks lacks the individual compression clicks to slow the shock through the travel.
On the Performance lineup riders will use air volume spacing to provide more support.

The FOX Performance DPS is an overall great shock – robust and easy to maintain.

Lunch Ride: Performance Float X

The SB140 C-Series Lunch Ride builds feature the FOX Performance Float X shock. Slightly more robust than the DPS the Float X has a higher heat capacity as well as slightly more aggressive tuning capacity.

Rebound and 2 position Open / Firm switch are featured on the Performance Float X.

FOX Factory Upgrades?

For medium or lighter riders the lack of compression clicks isn’t likely to create much of an issue.

The advantage of the upgraded Factory offerings compression control circuit is the ability to add hydraulic support to the suspension independent of the air circuit.

Since Yeti offers the Factory Suspension upgrade on their C-Series builds many riders will add the Factory Fork/Shock combo with the upgraded compression dampers installed.

T1 Lunch Ride Build Frequent Swaps

Common swaps:

Brakes: Magura and TRP are the most common changes here. Magura has more modulation while the Shimano come on a bit stronger. Riders who like Modulation may gravitate to the revised Hope 4 options which bring notably more power to the Hope lineup. TRP brakes are gaining traction for riders who like the Shimano feel but may want a touch more modulation from the longer brake lever.

Wheels: Onyx silent hubs, Chris King hubs, and Industry Nine Hydra are at home on a build at this level. We work with a range of carbon rims to allow you to fine tune rim width and stiffness as well. Wheels are a BIG part of a bike’s personality so chat with our team to get it right the first time!

Headset: Upgrade to the Cane Creek 110 or Chris King from the stock 40.

Cockpit: If you have a cockpit you like let’s get it on the bike.

Seating: Like cockpit, if you have a saddle or seatpost you love its a common change across all the builds.

AXS Upgrade: Consider the GX AXS kit upgrade on this build!

Yeti SB140: Comparative Bikes

What else is on your short list when shopping the Yeti SB140?

You’re looking for something truly “all mountain”. Between geometry and disposition the Yeti SB140 tends to find itself in the conversation with bigger bikes like the SB160. That’s because the SB140 is a fast bike, comfortable in bigger terrain. The SB140 is a bit quicker handling than the SB160 and will be a bit lighter.

Currently the list of bikes that are comparable to the Yeti SB160 would be the Ibis Ripmo with a 170mm fork and the 150mm travel Mondraker FOXY. Both available from BikeCo.com.

If the SB140 is on the bigger side of what you’re shopping you’d compare the SB120, Ripley, Raze and Exie. All of which gravitate in and around that super confident trail bike category.
