Yeti bikes has officially released new details regarding their latest addition to their long line of super trail bikes in the form of the new 2011 Yeti SB-66.
The new bike features the latest technology called Switch technology, a new bike technology that utilizes a dual link design that improves the rider’s pedaling power while at the same time still giving the rider the comfort that they would need during downhill and uphill trail.
So how exactly will the new technology work for the Yeti SB-66? The dual link tech moves the lower pivot of the bike’s swing arm to help continually move it throughout the ride. From the normal position, the dual link revolves counter clockwise together with the axle, which initially moves backwards.
Changing the shock midstroke helps flatten the leverage ration slightly, which in turn provides a responsive feeling while in control. Moving the dual link system past midstroke puts the link into its maximum inflection point, which switches direction and starts moving the parts in a clockwise motion, which makes the new Yeti bike maintain its smooth movement minus a wicked bottom out.
The bike also features a fully sealed eccentric system as well as oversized pivot pins with Enduro Max bearings and post mount rear tab. The bike also boasts of a chain slap guards and direct mount derailleurs.
With all these great looking components and technology, the bike definitely is worthy of being called “Super”.
