SB135 T-Series Forks:
T-Series Lunch Ride: FOX Factory 36 GRIP2 160mm
T-Series: FOX Factory 36 FIT4 150mm
Read more on the tabs about both the Lunch Ride and standard fork options.
Looking to mix and match? No problem – dampers and air springs are interchangeable giving riders the ultimate setup options when working with BikeCo.com
Quick Review: SB135 vs SB135 Lunch Ride Fork
The SB135 Lunch Ride features the GRIP2 160mm travel fork while the standard SB135 is spec’d with the FIT4 150mm fork.
The FIT4 may be slightly lighter, but probably not enough for riders to notice. Instead the major differences are in the compression settings as well as the geo modifications from the taller fork.
The Lunch Ride will be slightly more relaxed at speed with a slacker headtube angle, slightly taller bottom bracket and a bit longer wheelbase.
The 150mm SB135 setup will be a bit more quick handling and may track slightly better particularly in steep, technical climbs.
Read more about the differences available in the GRIP2 vs FIT4 in the following tabs.
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.
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.
The 160mm FOX 36 is factory spec’d with 1 volume spacers (bike manufacturers may or may not change this). The 150mm 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 inÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â product damage and potential for injuries, etc.

GRIP2 vs FIT4 Rebound Controls
Let’s take a quick glance at the differences between the FOX GRIP2, spec’d on the T-Series Lunch Ride, and FIT4, spec’d on the T-Series, Rebound Dampers
FOX GRIP2: High & Low
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.
FIT4: On-The-Fly (Compression)
The FIT4 damper provides Low rebound control (LSR).
There are 10 clicks of adjustability on the FOX FIT4 rebound.
Quick Conclusion GRIP2 vs FIT4: Rebound
The GRIP2’s high speed rebound allows slightly more tuning range than a single low speed cartridge.
Whether this is something that the average rider needs, well, more dials is more fun?
The High Speed Rebound is typically moved in direct correlation to the low speed rebound – it would be rare to make, outside the box, adjustments to the high speed rebound setup.
Having ridden both for many years – the truth is the the major difference between the GRIP2 vs FIT4 is in: the Compression circuits – so read on the next tab!
GRIP2 vs FIT4 Compression Settings
The FOX GRIP2, spec’d on the T-Series Lunch Ride, and FIT4, spec’d on the T-Series, Compression Damper Differences
FOX GRIP2: High & Low
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.
FOX FIT4: On-The-Fly
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)
Quick Conclusion GRIP2 vs FIT4: Compression
The GRIP2 damper will not have the On-The-Fly switch but gains a High Speed Compression adjustment.
Both dampers have Low Speed Compression controls for fine tuning support into corners, under braking, etc.
The GRIP2’s High Speed Compression is a good tool to control high shaft speed compression as well as assisting with bottom out resistance. A high speed compression control allows riders to find support through the hydraulic system without having to max out the ramp rate through air volume spacers.
With more bits the GRIP2 is a bit heavier damper, however, if you’re looking for maximum adjustability whether you want to run a 150mm or a 160mm fork the GRIP2 is the damper. (in fact you’ll see the GRIP2 spec’d on many down-country and trail endurance bikes at this point as the fork is so adjustable…)
If you’re interested in the GRIP2 in the standard 150mm spec let us know and BikeCo is happy to work with you to dial in your bike.
Yeti SB135 T-Series Shock Spec
The Yeti T-Series are spec’d with the FOX Factory Float DPS rear shock.
T-Series Lunch Ride bikes are spec’d with the FOX Factory Float X rear shock.
FOX Factory Float X (Lunch Ride)
The Float X is the next step up in shock disposition for riders looking to push the SB135 into chunkier, faster terrain. The Float X offers better heat capacity and a more aggressive architecture to maintain top level performance longer into fast, burly runs.
Notably the Factory Float X has more sophisticated low speed compression controls which are used to give the bike additional support through the hydraulic system (notably to help the bike ride “taller” into fast corners or chunky sections). With the increased setup range from the improved compression controls riders have more range to fine tune air volume spacing and therefor ramp rate with the Float X
Debating which rear shock is right for your SB140? 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!
FOX Factory DPS
The DPS FOX rear shocks provide adjustments via PSI, air volume spacing, low speed rebound, 1-2-3 low speed compression in open mode as well as an Open-Mid-Firm climb compression switch.
The FOX Factory DPS is an overall great shock – robust and easy to maintain.
Quick Conclusion: DPS vs Float X
The DPS is lighter, but not by a whole, whole lot. It tends to have a slightly “poppier” personality than the larger shock option.
The Float X is the more aggressive shock, however, it is also a more adjustable shock overall – so, like the GRIP2 damper on the fork you’re seeing these more aggressive shocks used to facilitate the widest range of tuning as well.
Unlike the fork which can have the damper system swapped out you’ll want to get your rear shock choice right the first time…
Yeti offers a wide range of cross-over kits and BikeCo.com can fine tune any build with your dream parts: so if you know what you want let’s get you dialed.
Not sure? Well, you’re in the right place for that. Chat with our team today about your riding style, terrain, aspirations and ground speed and we will help you define which shock will work best for your riding!
Air Spring & Volume Spacers
The Yeti SB140 T-Series spec’s the FOX Factory Float DPS while the SB140 T-Series Lunch Ride spec’s the FOX Factory Float X.
SAG is adjusted by PSI – typically Trail / Enduro riding styles gravitate to 20-25% sag.
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.
Factory Float DPS vs Factory Float X
Both shocks offer low speed rebound adjustment with similar adjustment ranges. Riders shopping the differences between these shocks will often compare the Compression controls and the air spring basics. In theory, the Float X’s rebound circuit is less susceptible to heat saturation issues at high speeds due to the architecture and design.
FOX Factory Float X Rebound Controls (Lunch Ride)
Below is the rebound adjustment on the FOX Factory Float X
FOX Factory DPS Rebound Controls
Below is the rebound adjustment on the FOX Factory Float DPS
Both the FOX Factory Float DPS and Factory Float X feature 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.
DPS vs Float X Compression Controls
Along with the air system and heat capacity the compression circuits offer the biggest differences between the DPS and Float X rear shocks.
FOX Factory Float X Compression Controls (Lunch Ride)
The Float X provides an on-the-fly switch as well as low speed compression controls.
You can see the compression control positioning on the Float X below.
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.
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.
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.
You’ll see the blue lever as well as the black 1-2-3 low speed setting in the image below.

SB135 T2 Build Frequent Swaps
Let us dial your bike in at time of purchase – below are common swaps for the Yeti SB135 T2 Complete.
T2 Frequent Swaps
Brakes: Most riders will upgrade or swap the SRAM brakes. Shimano XT or XTR, Magura MT7 , the new Hope series and TRP are popular options.
Wheels: Onyx silent hubs, Chris King hubs, Industry Nine Hydra – all 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!
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.
Tires: The 2.6″ tires on the SB135 can be polarizing. If you love them you’ll love them – but if you’re looking for something different let’s get you dialed right off the bat!
Wireless Shifting: We see a lot of riders update the T2 builds with wireless options like the GX AXS kit.

Yeti SB135: Comparative Bikes
The SB135 is a nicely executed bike for a niche that’s grown smaller over the years: a Trail / Light Enduro capable 27.5″ bike.
This is a bike that lends itself to a custom Mullet spec (much like its predecessor the SB140) as well as a variety of fork travel options.
Yeti tests there bikes up to 20mm past the fork spec giving this bike a lot of range in 27.5″ setup for variable headtube angles, trail measurements, bottom bracket heights and wheelbase setups.
Add to that the confident platform for a 29″ front wheel mullet and you’re busy comparing the variable setups of the SB135 within its own model!
