The Yeti SB120 brings a bit more travel to the down-country, endurance XC, trail bike world. Yeti’s proven geometry balancing speed capacity with maneuverability creates a bike that’s fun in the tight, technical stuff but with some forgiveness if you get a bit off-line, or, if you just enjoy getting it rowdy on the downhill.

BikeCo offers a variety of unique service and after service aspects to your purchasing experience. Read on for more about this Yeti as well as common spec swaps and upgrades we see.

Yeti SB120 Complete – Turquoise, Raw Carbon, Loch and Dust (images may not show kit referenced on this page)

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 T4 Fork

White the Yeti SB120 T1 and T3 are spec’d with a 130mm travel FOX Factory 34 GRIP2 the SB120 T4 is spec’d with the FOX Factory FIT4.

The FIT4 provides a 3 position “on-the-fly” adjustment for Open, Mid & Firm as well as 22 clicks of low speed compression.

Of course, riders can also upgrade to the GRIP2 damper as well!

The GRIP2 provides riders both high and low speed controls for rebound and compression.

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. On the stock 130mm setup 15% equals 20mm of sag. 20% will use 26mm of sag.

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 34 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 34. 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.

Yeti SB120 T-Series Shock Spec

The Yeti T Series (or Turq Series) SB120 T1, T3 and T4 builds are spec’d with the FOX Factory DPS.

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.

FOX Factory DPS Rebound Control

FOX FLOAT DPS 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 Factory DPS Compression Open Adjust and 3 position switch

FOX Factory DPS Compression Controls

The FOX Factory DPS provides 2 compression controls.

First is the lever actuated Open, Medium & Firm settings (also called a climb switch). This is shown in blue in the image above.

The Factory DPS also provides a 3 position Open Mode adjuster. It is mounted between the rebound and the lever. 1 is open, 2 is a bit more support and 3 is even more support – all in the “Open” mode of the lever.

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.
