The term quiver-killer gets thrown around a lot in the mountain bike world, having been used to describe everything from hardy cross country bikes to pedal-friendly enduro steeds. The truth is that one bike can't totally rule them all, and the idea of the perfect bike varies greatly depending on who you ask and what their preferred riding style is. If there's one bike we were to say comes close though, it would be the Yeti SB130 Turq Mountain Bike Frame. Born on the rugged and rocky trails of Colorado and designed to excel going both up and down the mountain, the SB130 absolutely crushes big terrain, yet somehow manages to remain lively and playful on tamer trails where finding your flow is the name of the game. It's a bike that can excel at the extremes and everything in between, tackling everything from speedy laps on your local XC trails to epic backcountry rides on raw singletrack that most short-travel bikes wouldn't even dream of. Discerning riders wouldn't feel out of place at the bike park or the occasional enduro race, either. Factor in the lightweight but tough TURQ carbon construction, plush yet efficient Switch Infinity platform with FOX Factory suspension, and Yeti's industry-leading progressive geometry, and you've got one of the most well-rounded bikes we've come across in quite some time. Longer, lower, slacker has been the trend on modern trail bikes, and on the SB130 the geometry numbers lean towards a skilled descender that can still pedal all day when it's time to earn your turns. The 65. 5-degree head tube angle is remarkably slack for a bike with this much travel, delivering unwavering stability when descending steep technical terrain. With a head tube this slack you'd normally feel some sluggishness on tamer sections of trail, but that's not the case with the SB130 as it's designed to pair with a 44mm offset fork, a way of bringing the front wheel closer to the rider so that the slack head angle doesn't create an unusually long wheelbas...
