SB-66 Mountain Bike Frame

The alloy SB-66 marked a change in direction for the boys in Golden, CO, as it was the first platform to receive Yeti's innovative approach to suspension design -- Switch Technology. Developed to both climb and descend aggressive backcountry trails, the 152mm travel SB-66 Mountain Bike Frame represents the current direction of progressive mountain biking. Key to the SB-66's multifaceted ability is its distinctive Switch Technology, rear suspension design. Technically, it's a mini dual-link system. And while there're a number of iterations currently on the market, Yeti's application offers something a bit different. Switch Technology refers to the rotational movement of an eccentric housed in the lower pivot. Essentially it's a pivot within a pivot, with 12mm separating the centers. As the rear suspension compresses into its travel, the eccentric (and the pivot) rotate counter-clockwise as viewed from the drive-side of the bike. It moves this way through the first 100mm or so of travel to provide an anti-squat, neutral characteristic to the suspension. When riding, it feels as if the SB-66 has a built-in pedaling platform, and since it's a result of the eccentric, it doesn't rely on heavy compression damping. This gives the SB excellent traction and control on choppy trails. At the same time, the SB-66 is ready for larger hits. Once the mid-stroke is exceeded, Switch Technology changes direction and rotates clockwise. This keeps chainstay growth at a minimum for a reduced pedal kickback and lively handling on tight and twisty trails. It also ramps up the leverage ratio. For the most part, Switch Technology produces a flat curve, but once the rear suspension is pushed towards the limit, it firms up to provide a bottomless feel. There's another benefit as well. Since the bottom bracket, eccentric, and lower pivot for the swing link are all machined into a single, forged aluminum structure, they're in perfect alignment on every bike. This translates into a rear s...

SB-66 Carbon Mountain Bike Frame

Taking the trail bike to uncharted levels, the six-inch (152mm) travel Yeti SB-66 Carbon Mountain Bike Frame expands on the quickly building, trail-dominating reputation of Yeti's Switch Technology suspension by adorning it with a weight-dropping and stiffness-enhancing carbon chassis. In fact, the hand-laid high modulus carbon front and rear triangles knock a whopping pound and a half off its aluminum counterpart -- and that's without sacrificing anything to the stiffness department. That's right, you're looking at a six pound (2. 72kg), six-inch trail bike. This is the first Yeti SB (Super Bike) series frame to feature collet-type pivot hardware, which ensures the correct bearing preload while protecting the structural integrity of the carbon fiber. Enduro Max angular contact bearings fill the bores and offer ultra-tight, flex-free tolerances while easily managing side loads that would send conventional cartridge bearings straight to the dump. The heart of the SB line lies in the suspension design. Unlike multi-link systems, which require linkages packed in between the main triangle and rear triangle, Yeti's Switch Technology features an eccentric mechanism buried low in the frame-enabling super-short chain stays and a low center of gravity for lively handling. This compact eccentric continuously adjusts the lower pivot position for a rearward, small-bump-damping axle path while maintaining a firm, pedal-friendly platform. Towards the end of the suspension's travel, the eccentric rotates in the opposite direction for a responsive mid-stroke, and finally to the end position where the suspension becomes progressively stiffer to provide big hit absorption. Think efficient pedaling perfectly meshed with big hit capabilities. Aside from the major drop in heft, updated bearings, and hardware, the SB-66 Carbon chassis is loaded with new-school features. The boys in Colorado provide the option to run a triple, double, or single ring with a chain guide thanks to rem...

Phoenix DH Mountain Bike Frame

It's no secret that part of the early success of the dw-link rear suspension design was due to Sam Hill's domination of the most technical courses on the world cup circuit. His track record would've led to an assumption that his dw-link equipped bike was tailor made for ultra-gnarly DH courses. This was only half true. His dw-link bike also pedaled with efficiency that rivaled bikes with far less travel. The Pivot Phoenix DH Mountain Bike Frame is built with this tradition in mind, and it has 207mm (8. 15") of travel thanks to the dw-link rear suspension. Ride the lift or ride your bike -- your choice. Either way you get to the top, the Phoenix can handle anything the descent throws your way from savage braking bumps to giant drop-offs and sweeping, white knuckle berms.Downhill racing requires that certain capabilities of the bike be incredibly fine tuned. Take the properties of the rear shock for example. Too much damping and the wheel cannot follow the ground. The result would be loss of traction and control. At the highest level, a skid or missed line could be the difference between the top of the podium and 10th place. This is not a problem on the Phoenix thanks to the dw-link rear suspension. As you pedal and accelerate, there is significant weight shift towards the back of the bike. The anti-squat built into the geometry of the dw-link counteracts this to keep the bike stable. This way, your pedaling effort isn't wasted as up and down movement at the shock. The solution to controlling the rider's effect on the rear suspension was found with the placement of the pivots and the length of the links rather than simply adding more low-speed compression damping which would hamper the performance of the rear suspension. With dw-link you can have serious bump compliance right alongside pedaling efficiency.Pivot's frame designers worked with Dave Weagle, the mastermind behind dw-link, to optimize the link placement as well as the shock location.

Highball Carbon Mountain Bike Frame

Aside from skipping the complexity and weight of rear suspension, hardtails also forgo long wheelbases for the lightest, most nimble 29er platform. Sure, there's terrain that favors an FS platform, but in its element, nothing's going to match the speed and rewarding behavior of a nicely spec'd Santa Cruz Highball Carbon Mountain Bike Frame. Santa Cruz dialed its carbon craft on its latest round of full suspension designs. And here, Santa Cruz put its knowledge and experience to good use in order to create a super-light, race-ready 29er hardtail. With the Highball Carbon, Santa Cruz employs all of its proprietary molding techniques to achieve a groundbreaking level of stiffness and strength. By using a one-piece lay-up, as opposed to assembling joints that require bonding or wrapping, Santa Cruz eliminated any excess material and weight. This one-piece process incorporates continuous fibers around the tube junctions, resulting in a structure that can efficiently distribute loads and absorb impact energy. The net-shape lay-up has been compacted to promote an optimum cloth/resin ratio, and to ensure that Santa Cruz can control the outside shape as well as the inside shape. The frame looks as good on the inside as it does on the outside. Even the cable and hose guides are incorporated into the original layup. There's nary a rivet to be found. To enhance stiffness and tracking, the Highball utilizes the same mixed tapered headset as the Blur LT Carbon and Tallboy. This headset format offers benefits and a few options that are worth considering. The zero stack upper bearing assembly has a minimal stack height that allows a slammed, cross-country handlebar position. And while we might normally pair this frame with a traditional 1. 5in lower cup that would accept a tapered steerer, there is always the option of running a zero stack lower bearing assembly with a straight 1-1/8in steerer. This can steepen the head angle a bit if that's the way that you like it. As is, ...

Tallboy LT Mountain Bike Frame

The Santa Cruz Tallboy LT has made quite a stir in the mountain bike community. As people ask more and more from their 29ers, suspension designs have to keep up. Currently, the Tallboy LT is at the forefront of this evolution. 135mm of VPP suspension and 29 inch wheels make this one of the most versatile bikes on the planet. This version, with the 12x142mm Maxle rear end, is designed to take all the punishment you can dish out and come back for seconds.The Tallboy LT is made of aluminum, with Santa Cruz's signature hydroformed top and down tubes. It's a little heavier than its carbon brother, but its price is much friendlier. Looking at the geometry, the Tallboy LT is longer and taller than the original Tallboy-but to keep that in perspective, the original Tallboy's short chainstays and ultra-compact head tube make it one of the most nimble full-suspension 29ers out there. The Tallboy LT maintains similar dimensions and adds 35mm of rear travel (135mm total) while accommodating a 130-150mm front fork. The head tube angle has been slackened a bit, to a more stable 69. 5 degrees. Throw in the inherent rolling advantages of 29 inch wheels and you have a bike that conquers the sketchiest descents with aplomb. The VPP rear-suspension on the Tallboy LT utilizes patented, counter-rotating shock links that allow for a variable feel throughout the suspension travel. When sag is set correctly, the Tallboy LT is extremely responsive to small- and medium-sized bumps. For larger hits that push it deeper into its travel, it becomes more stubborn, a necessity to avoid harsh bottom-out. It's also a crisp, efficient pedaler, even in the small chainring. Another big plus of VPP suspension is its durability; Santa Cruz guarantees the pivot bearings for life. Rear squish is handled by a light and custom-tuned Fox Float RP23 with a slick Kashima coating. Its three-position ProPedal lever lets you select an appropriate amount of platform damping for the terrain you're riding. Selec...

951 EVO Mountain Bike Frame - 2014

Perhaps more than any other discipline in cycling, downhill allows riders to literally buy speed. Whether upgrading to more powerful brakes, or dropping the cash on top-tier suspension dampers, minor improvements to your setup can turn into precious seconds saved when racing the clock. And with the staggering experimentation to be found throughout mountain biking's F1, it's somewhat puzzling that one of downhill's most arbitrary components, the 26-inch wheel, has been largely accepted as a constant. Thankfully, the gravity aficionados at Intense have been working tirelessly to show the world that big wheels have a place in downhill, and the American made Intense 951 Evo is the latest result of this grand experiment. We don't know whether larger wheels will continue to be UCI legal, but we do know that early back-to-back testing indicates that the 951 Evo saves multiple seconds per run over its smaller-wheeled competition. And that could translate into a lot of podiums in the hands of a capable rider. Or just more laughs at your favorite bike park. So, are you ready to redefine the meaning of "pinned?" The especially tech-savvy among you may remember the Intense M29 prototype, which caused some serious waves in downhill circles. While it wasn't destined for production, the 29-inch wheeled version of the M9 was the world's first glimpse into Intense founder Jeff Steber's fascination with applying larger wheels to downhill race bikes. While the theory is sound, the M29 project made clear that a 29-inch wheel is just too big to make room for all the requisite suspension components, while maintaining the geometry needed for unbridled shredding. This makes the 951 Evo both inevitable, and arguably the best researched big-wheeled DH bike around. Larger wheels provide an improved angle of attack, helping them to roll smoothly over uneven terrain. But the 951's speed isn't entirely attributable to its wheel size. The other part of the 951 Evo's ability to cover ground q...
