Rumors and speculation (maybe a little wishful thinking) go here....

It’s about that time of year where we start to hear grumblings of what’s new for the Yeti catalogue. Although, unless you’re an industry insider you can’t touch it until at least September/October.

I’m excited to see if there are any updates to the 5.5 beyond colors. Having owned two I’d like to see a little bit longer of a reach and a tad shorter seat tube. Maybe a bit wider rear triangle so the 2.5 DHF isn’t rubbing in hard riding.

How about a 5.5 TR?

With the recent release of the SB100 featuring new switch infinity system, and new shock placement, I wouldn't be surprised if new models are going to be released that mimic this layout. It'll make room for a bottle cage within the frame which a lot of people have been asking for. I'm holding out on getting a 5.5 to see if this is the case.

I’ve read the forum rumors of possibly a new Yeti SB5.5, so I thought I’d throw a bit of a speculative guess as to what’s coming………..
160mm-170mm up front
150mm out back
64-66 HTA
Lower BB
Switch infinity Version 2 (SB100)
Water bottle will hopefully fit within the frame
Shorter seat tube
Steeper seat tube angle
Capable of 2.60 tyre fitment on the rear
Double internal frame cable routing on the righthand side for left side mounted rear brake and dropper post levers
44mm offset forks
Metric shock
New metric name - SB150

A reliable source confirmed to me today that the 5.5 will have a 170mm front end and 150mm rear and will fit a water bottle in the front triangle. Due be announced in the next 3 weeks. A few geo changes to make it an enduro weapon.

Is Yeti moving away from the 4.5/5.5/6 model designations?

Really interested in the geometry of both the 2019 SB130 and SB150.

-I took the image of the sb150 and put it into photoshop and measured the head tube angle at 64 degrees. i did the same with the sb130 and got around 65.5 degrees.
-I also did the same with the effective seat tube angles on both and both the sb130 and sb15 gets around a 77 degree effective seat tube angle.


sb150 . sb130 .
-----------------------------------------
HTA: 64 65.5
STA: 77 77

*please note that this does not take into account the very possible addition for adjustable geometry, and these numbers were calculated in photo editing software and may not be 100% accurate.

funny how all the forums keep deleting the images.... except the first photoshop that still links Smile the new look is growing in me. that orange sb150 looks like its gonna be a monster!! But 130/150 would be the logical choice for most riding. Gonna demo a Sentinel this weekend.

Hope the new Yeti's will be in shops by the end of next month!!

wonder when they will spill the beans...

SUCKs for their riders that they aren't letting them ride prototypes

nice find!

I like that paint job better than the orange or the blue! Wink

Funny though, paint it black and put some Loud cheezy stickers like some Chinese carbon catalog eBay frame and most wouldn't give it a 2nd look.

Appears to be Metric Trunnion mounts and the new switch infinity link plus a wayyyyy shorter seat tube compared to previous models. Reach and Frame geo looks good too

trunion? or just some kind of a shock yoke?
