Description

Yeti SB140 29 C1 Lunch Ride Complete – Turquoise, Raw Carbon, Sage & Sangria (images may not show kit referenced on this page)

Want to learn more about all the available build kits or compare the SB140 vs the SB140 Lunch Ride? We have you covered right here!

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!

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!

SB140 29 C-Series Forks:

C-Series Lunch Ride: FOX Performance 36 GRIP 160mm
C-Series: FOX Performance 36 GRIP 150mm

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 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.

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.
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 in  product damage and potential for injuries, etc.

Marzocchi Z1 Coil Rebound Adjuster

FOX Performance 36 GRIP Rebound Controls

The FOX Performance 36 GRIP features a low speed rebound to fine tune performance.

FOX Performance GRIP compression lever

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 SB140 29 C-Series Lunch Ride Shock Spec

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

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 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 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!

Air Spring & Volume Spacers

The Yeti SB140 Lunch Ride C-Series spec’s the FOX Performance Float X.

SAG is adjusted by PSI – typically Trail / Enduro 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 Float X Rebound Control

FOX PERFORMANCE Float X Rebound Controls

The FOX Performance Float X 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 Float X 2 position clockable Firm Mode

FOX PERFORMANCE Float X 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.

(Factory Float X shown in image above with compression controls – Factory Upgrade Available from Yeti at time of purchase!)

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.

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.
