2023 Yeti Frame Design Improvements

What’s updated on the SB120?

The SB120 has more to offer than simply another 10mm of travel…

The new Yeti features improved Switch Infinity 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.

This bike is designed to give riders something comfortable and confident for all day excursions well off the groomed and swept lunch loops. But, it’s a Yeti so you know it’s going to have that flickable fun feeling when you point it downhill. Even more so with the updates to the Switch Infinity V2 and the SB120’s leverage rates.

Yeti SB160 Linkage Details Pressed Standard Bearings

SB120 Linkage

One of the most notable updates to the Yeti linkage on the SB120 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.

SB120 Linkage Updates & Improvements

Why more? Why add travel to the XC Endurance / Trail end of the lineup? Well, as much as I hate using all of the MTB marketing terms – the SB120 really does well balancing a “down-country” philosophy for a wide range or riders.

So what does more travel mean? Well it’s allowed the suspension to be tuned differently. The actual addition of more travel at the end of the stroke allows the ramp rate to be re-imagined while maintaining a near bottom-less feel.

Since you asked (well, I’m not sure you did but I’m going to tell you) super short travel bikes are forced into a lot of compromises. And the basic of that is: a dual suspension bike isn’t going to be as light as a hardtail. It’s not. It has more bits! (but, hardtails HURT to ride man – maybe its our locale here in Southern California, maybe it’s my age – but the romance is gone for a hardtail for me… if you’re XC racing then of course. Any thing that starts with the word “pleasure” I’m not sure how hard tail oriented it can be!!)

Anyhow – so you’ve got your dual suspension bike. You might as well get it into that sweet spot of travel and performance which is where the SB120’s down-country personality sits. It accelerates quickly. It changes direction well. But it’s got enough to be a super fun day when you get pointed downhill. Frankly it’s confident into bigger terrain than a lot of 120mm bikes would be thanks to Yeti’s geometry and commitment to building fast bikes!

Some of the other advantages to the new linkage revision include lower stand-over height and more water bottle room, even with the raised down tube to bottom bracket connector (more on that later)

2023 Yeti SB160 Frame Design Improvements

SB120: 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!

Yeti SB120 C-Series Fork

The Yeti SB120 C2 is spec’d with a 130mm travel FOX Performance 34 GRIP.

The GRIP features low speed rebound controls as well as low speed compression dial.

*Common Upgrade: Yeti offers the C-Series completes an opportunity to upgrade to Factory Suspension at time of purchase for pro-rated pricing! Another common upgrade is to change the GRIP damper to the GRIP2 which features the high and low speed compression as well as rebound (essentially making a Performance Elite fork)

Air Spring & Volume Spacers

The FOX 34 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.

 

Volume Spacers

The 130mm FOX 34 is factory spec’d with 2 volume spacers (bike manufacturers may or may not change this). The 130mm fork can carry a maximum of 5 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.

FOX Performance 34 GRIP Rebound Controls

The FOX Performance 34 GRIP features a low speed rebound to fine tune performance.

FOX GRIP Compression Controls

The FOX GRIP damper provides an adjustable control to increase compression.

Common C-Series Fork Upgrade!

It’s a pretty common upgrade to the Yeti C Series Performance fork to upgrade to the FOX Grip2 damper, essentially building a Performance Elite fork. Chat with our team about dialing this in!

Yeti SB120 C-Series Shock Spec

The Yeti C Series (or Carbon Series) SB120 C1 and C2 builds are spec’d with the FOX Performance DPS.

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. 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 C1 and C2 builds many riders will add the Factory Fork/Shock combo with the upgraded compression dampers installed.

Debating which rear shock is right for your SB120? Chat with the team at BikeCo.com – we will look at your riding style, locale, terrain, ground speed and disposition and help you define where the best value is to get your dream bike performing like you’d expect!

Air Spring & Volume Spacers

The Yeti SB120 C-Series spec’s the FOX Performance DPS.

SAG is adjusted by PSI – typically Trail / Down-Country  riding styles gravitate to 20-25% 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.

FOX Performance DPS Rebound Adjustment

FOX PERFORMANCE DPS Rebound Controls

The FOX Performance DPS features a low speed rebound control.

Some Rebound Setup Basics:
Typically higher ground speed means a faster rebound setting.
Heavier riders will use higher rebound settings to better control the increased PSI on the shock’s piston.
Your Rebound Settings will likely change as you progress – this is normal!

One of the advantages working with BikeCo.com is a resource to help you stay on top of your settings. We love to stay in contact with our clients and help them fine tune suspension, wheels, tires and cockpits as their riding progresses.

FOX Performance DPS Compression Control

FOX PERFORMANCE DPS Compression Controls

Essentially a “climb switch” the FOX Performance DPS offers basic low speed compression control.

Riders looking to increase support have a little bit of setting available on this control, however Air Volume Spacing is likely where a FOX Performance shock will find most of its additional support.

BikeCo Exclusive: Pro Tune Suspension

There are a lot of reasons to shop at The Bike Company (BikeCo.com). Some are: Unmatched attention to detail. Incredible after sales setup follow up. Pro Tune Suspension.

Our team works with the FOX fork and shock lineup to take the already great FOX suspension to the next level. Working with our team of suspension tuners we will narrow the FOX performance window based on your size, riding style, terrain, ground speeds, aggression, goals and chassis.

What’s it mean to narrow the performance window? Well, each click is more precise. The fluid is hand picked for you. The bleed is more precise.

On trail your suspension will be more plush while maintaining the support and progression you need to really attack the trail.

For racers our tuned suspension subtracts seconds from your run. For pleasure riders it improves the traction and feel allowing you to progress quicker in your riding.

SB120 C2 Build Frequent Swaps

Below are some common swaps for the Yeti SB120 C2 Complete

Common Yeti SB120 C2 Upgrades

C2 Build Frequent Swaps

With a couple well placed swaps / upgrades your C2 build can be dialed in without breaking the bank.

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 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. Or upgrade to a carbon bar or 35mm combination to find tune your SLX build.

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

Suspension: Consider the Factory upgrade or add the GRIP2 damper to make a Performance Elite Fork!

What else is on your short list when shopping the Yeti SB120?

You’re looking for something fast. Flickable. And confident. The SB120 would compare with the Ibis Exie & Ripley in many ways. Going slightly larger you might shop the bigger Yeti or Mondraker Raze as well.

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.
