Reed Boggs got a late call up to Red Bull Rampage this year
, but that still left enough time for Yeti to commission him this stunning custom bike to tackle the cliffs of Utah. Boggs signed with Yeti at the start of 2020 and, although they don't offer a dedicated downhill or freeride frame like most brands represented on site this week, he feels confident using this beefed-up version of the SB165. Yeti tested the 165 to downhill standards for this very reason and, with a double crown fork fitted, they believe it's every bit as capable of being used as a freeride bike or a bike park smasher.
This particular bike has been tuned by Mark Hild, Yeti's US team mechanic, to be ideally suited for the huge hits of Rampage and then painted in an eye-catching livery for that extra special feeling. Let's get into all the details below.
