2018 Yeti SB6 Women’s Bike Review

Yeti SB6

The Yeti SB6 Review:

If you are looking for a big enduro, shuttle or bike park machine that is good enough to win the Enduro World Series (if you ride like Ritchie Rude) then the Yeti SB6 is your bike.  The stealth black frame option with TURQ Carbon had just the right amount of turquoise pop for an understated class.

Need a little more flash, go with the turquoise frame with orange accents. If you are going all in, you could get the Yeti SB6 TR (team replica.) Good luck, they only made 150 of them and they retail for $9499.

The build with Shimano shifting and Fox suspension will set you back $6599, a small price to pay for the luxury of this supple suspension and slick ride.  After all YOLO, so WHY NOT? Don’t need the higher end carbon, go for the regular and spend considerably less at $4999.

Yeti’s SB6 offers 160mm front and 152mm rear travel and was built for aggressive enduro racing.

Solid, stealthy rear end with the Switch Infinity Link making the big hits feel small.

Sara Stanford testing out the Yeti SB6 wheelie-ability!

Sara never shies away from big rock rollers or drops and this bike was designed to crush this sort of technical downhill terrain. Perhaps a bit much for Sedona, the bike understandably was sluggish on the climbs.

The SB6 will suit you well if you are not opposed to pedalling a bigger bike uphill, after all, it will make you stronger! If you love long downhill shuttle runs or like riding steeper technical lift-serviced terrain, this bike should stand out on your list of must-have’s! At least must-try!

Prefer a shorter travel trail/enduro bike with 29″ wheels? Read the Yeti SB 5.5 review here.
