With a frame design tested and verified by World Champion Richie Rude on enduro tracks around the world. The SB6 is tough enough to handle the rigors of enduro racing, lift days in the park and still light enough to slog out big miles in the back country.
The SB6 is tested under heightened frame requirements to withstand more abuse. Tested to stiffness and impact levels of downhill bike standards. Along with the testing in the lab the Yeti SB6 has been ridden to victory on the toughest Enduro race courses in the world. This thing is Richie Rude frigging approved.

Switch Infinity Translating Pivot – Explained
The Switch Infinity holds full control of the bikes 6″ of suspension, switching direction as the bike moves through its travel to result in a confidence inspiring performance that feels simply amazing on the trail. As you move through the bikes travel the pivot switches direction, early on in the movement it heads upwards, providing anti-squat and optimal pedalling.
Further along the travel the pivot eventually switches to a downwards movement, providing you with a bottomless feeling that stops any chain force from affecting how the suspension performs. All resulting in an efficient, fun to ride and most importantly high performing ride both on the up and down hill!
The SB6 is built around our patented Switch Infinity suspension system. Switch Infinity utilizes a patented translating pivot that switches direction as the bike moves through its travel. This provides excellent anti-squat characteristics for superior pedaling performance and ideal suspension characteristics as it gets deeper into the travel.
Tuned for anti-squat and leverage ratio properties that emphasize the downhill capabilities while finding a balance for it uphill pedaling efficiency. Making this an enduro race machine that slays the down and get you to the top without ramping up the heart rate too much.

The integrated axle and derailleur hanger system is built for simplicity and strength. Utilizing a left-hand thread to secure the hanger allows us to incorporate the same machine piece for the axel retention. A clever little system the engineers spent many hours on that might get overlooked.
