In the past few years we've been seeing consistent trends in the bike industry that reach into realms of deeper travel, slacker geometry, and longer wheelbases -- and while these geometry tweaks all lend to capable steeds, we think its about time for the pendulum to swing back to the speedy race rocket. We suspect we're not the only ones who share this notion, as Yeti graced us with an all-new cross-country steed last year, built to soar up climbs, but not too racy to take queues from other steeds in Yeti's quiver in the capability department, and thus the SB100 Turq T2 X01 Eagle Mountain Bike was born. This year the faithful short-travel 29er is back again to take on race days and trail riding alike, but with a stealthy new paint job that forgoes most of the bold and flashy logos that adorned last year's model, opting for a much more sleek and understated aesthetic that lets the bike riding speak for itself. It still packs in the lively geometry figures that make it far more confident than its numbers would leave you suspecting, which we think is a testament to Yeti's cross-country prowess from its previous generations of steeds. It packs in a compact version of the brand's Switch Infinity suspension platform, with 100mm of efficient and playful travel that soars up climbs, huge distances, and multi-stage endurance races alike We have a habit of mentally pigeonholing cross country bikes, and to be fair, many of them on the market only truly excel in the department of featherweight builds to soar through race day. But bikes tossed together with borderline anorexic components can feel twitchy and nerve wracking when you've got to push it through technical descents, and to truly transcend categories you need more stability.
