Yeti Cycles SB5+ Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018

Where the trail, cross-country, and enduro single-tracks all merge, you'll find the illusive Yeti SB5+ Carbon GX Eagle Complete Mountain Bike 2018 patiently waiting for you to climb aboard and send it in every direction imaginable.

And for those gnarly and steep tree lines, Yeti's engineers set you up with a slacked out 67. 1-degree head tube angle that feels planted and bombproof, with confidence inspiring geometry that's eager to devour the descents.
