How’d you like this SB165 in Moss? (Comes in Black and Turq too)

As the brand celebrates its 35th anniversary, the Yeti Cycles 2021 range seems to be having a time to take stock and just catch up with everything, after a couple of years of frantic bike launches and revisions. There have been a couple of new models, but they’ve already been announced this year: The new ARC hardtail, a brand new carbon hardtail (which also comes in a 35th anniversary edition), along with the Yeti SB115, which will replace the outgoing SB100.

There are still two 27.5in bikes, the Yeti SB140, the 160/140mm travel trail hooligan and the SB165, which blurs the line between enduro bike and downhill bike (it’s rated to run a 180mm travel dual crown fork…).

The rest of the Yeti 2021 range is fully 29er – no mullets here, with bikes from the mates-racy SB115, through the SB130 and SB150. Not forgetting the new ARC hardtail, which will run a 130mm 29er fork.

The new carbon Yeti ARC, in Turquoise

European distributors Silverfish will be stocking more of the Yeti Cycles 2021 range than before, with the model list now including the C2 tier of bikes – so, the more affordable carbon frame with a slightly better than entry level spec. Above that, then comes the ‘T’ or Turq spec frames which save 220g over the ‘C’ frames with both having the same strength.

We like this SB140 in ‘Storm’ a lot… Even though they turned the studio lights on for this one shot…

And while we’re touring the new colours, here’s a Yeti SB130 in ‘Brick’
And how ’bout this ARC in none-more-black?

We could go on, but that’s the main job of the Yeti website, to inform you about the finer details… We’re hopeful that we’ll be getting a chance to test a few of these 2021 bikes from Yeti in the next few months. In the meantime, we’ll show you a few of the fancier colours (apart from turquoise, which is obviously a feature on many models…) and let you make your own minds up. Full prices are at the bottom of the page right here.

Before we go, it’s good to hear that when the pandemic hit, Yeti found they it excess production capacity, so turned its efforts to helping healthcare workers by producing and donating 20,000 shields to keep frontline workers safe. Go Yeti!

    Yeti’s site is great for downloading beautiful photos for Windows wallpaper. Can’t afford any of their bikes these days though.
