This new system allows the suspension to achieve seemingly contradictory characteristics. In the early stage of the travel it displays superior pedaling efficiency and excellent small bump sensitivity. As you move deeper into the travel, it is well supported and responds effortlessly to square edge hits. FOX know-how makes the system bombproof and low maintenance. The system is also significantly lighter (100g) than the original Switch Technology.

YETI SB5 CARBON
The SB5C is our interpretation of what a trail bike should be — lightweight, great pedaling uphill and a screamer going down. This bike will make you smile.

Yeti SB5 Carbon
EFFICIENCY
At the beginning of the travel, the main pivot translates upward, creating a rearward wheel path. This provides excellent anti-squat and optimum pedaling performance.

CONTROL
Once the Switch Infinity system reaches the inflection point, the main pivot begins to translate downward. This linear movement prevents the chain force from adversely affecting suspension performance. The decreased chain force combined with the linear-progressive leverage ratio gives the suspension a controlled, bottomless feel.

Switch Infinity Mechanism built by FOX
DURABLE
The Switch Infinity mechanism is a simple, lightweight, bombproof system built by FOX from proven suspension components. We only use the best components in its construction — Kashima coated stanchions for low friction and durability, seals and bushings that are used in FOX’s off-road racing division, and a lightweight, forged body.

We have field-tested the parts for over three years and the original bushings, seals, and stanchions on our test mules are still in perfect working condition. Fox has thrown the system into its testing regimen as well — cyclic, ultimate, fatigue, mud, and ride testing — and found the system worthy enough to be “Enabled by FOX.”


TUNABLE
Switch Infinity is a versatile system easily adaptable to different travel platforms. The system can be mounted in any orientation and can achieve a myriad of kinematics depending on the design intent. For example, longer travel bikes require drastically different kinematics later in the travel (controlling wheel path trajectory). The Switch Infinity system can control this much more precisely than other suspension designs because of the linear path of the main pivot. We also can control leverage ratio and anti-squat with much greater freedom than other systems.

The SB5C is available immediately. Contact your local dealer for more details.

 @Gerrysc90 It my seem that way, but after countless rides in the snow and mud on this thing, it is quite apparent that that is not the case. I'm not one to work and maintain my bikes perfectly, but have seen no issues with this system in the grit and grime. I think people will be pleasantly surprised with this once they get on it and start getting after it!

 Forks suffer so much more friction. I wish forks could have some kind of leverage and compression ratio. Then, like the shock, the force applied would have an advantage over the resistance of the shock, whereas with a fork it is even. 1 inch of compression is 1 inch of travel...so none of the friction is minimized either. For this reason, rear suspension will always be more smooth than the front. It always bothers me just a little. Not like I have any ideas, really...I just notice it.

 "FOX know-how makes the system bombproof and low maintenance." Ha ha ha!

It looks like they took Switch and made it more complicated, more prone to failure, harder to clean, more expensive to manufacture and maintain. What a bag of shit!

 The bearing life in the old style sb's was pretty bad, the big blue rotating thing held water like a gold fish bowl and seized up in no time. Even with kashima this will probably be more durable... relatively anyway.

 @ Fr3er1d3r & jordanneedsafork, its been done, John Whyte from Marin designed a bike the used a J type axle path for the front wheel and used a 100mm shock, it looks weird and didn't catch on, I still have my frame as its quite unique, climbs great but decends very bad.

 @fr3er1d3r

Fork stiction is offset by the same fact that 1 inch of travel is equal to 1 inch of compression on the stanchions because lower pressure is required in the fork, So the seals have to put less pressure on the stanchions and or cartridge to keep all that air and or oil inside... But as always coil will feel smoother....
  • 1 0
 Yeah but that's much less relevant. Consider that you have 2 seals...so automatically twice the friction. Stanchions are bigger too so there's more surface area per seal which is more friction as well. Several times more just based on surface area.

  • 7 1
 But even if they closed it off they would need a hole of some sort for the bolt to go through, and as it moves up and down it would need to be bigger than the bolt. Therefore dirt and dust would build up over time and then would become impossible to clean out

 How is this going to be harder, more prone to failure, and/or more expensive to service? 4 seals, grease ports, two fox fork bushings. As long as you don't totally gouge the shit out of the kashima somehow, it's likely no different, maybe even better than the eccentric maintenance wise. The SB66c has some very big very expensive bearings that aren't sealed that well. Once your wear out the really hard to find quad lip orings (or whatever they call them) on the eccentric, water gets in the eccentric and kills the bearings quick. Oh and there's the stop bolt plug......those with a Yeti probably share my frustration on that. Can't wait for the 66 replacement with this tech!

 Don't see mud being an issue, I've seen suspension designs that are much more prone to being packed with mud. It's not even open on the back....

 On the bright side once these go out of warranty and the fan boys give up trying to fix it themselves they should be a relative steal on the PB buy/sell.

  • 5 3
 So, is this like a parallel link that has a dampener attached to the rearward travel? If so, that's pretty amazingly sick. not a horrible price either
  • 8 1
 There's no damper in the mechanism itself - there's minimal resistance in either direction. The purpose of the rods is to help control the wheel path, and allow the engineers to get the leverage curve they want.
  • 8 1
 So it is basically the same as the rail on the 303 WC.
  • 12 13
 Yes. Rail good idea. This however looks needlessly visually overengineered and flexible and heavy and overpriced. No buy.
  • 5 4
 Another thing to break/ need regular servicing.
  • 2 1
 Yeah, i'm not totally seeing the point of this actually. I initially was thinking it was a good idea, but I just don't see it now. There are other systems that do the same thing but don't need a part that can break
  • 3 1
 The point is to control wheel path and leverage curve. The rail on the 303 WC did the first thing and the 303 RDH did the second. It really is more simple than the rail or a bearing, should be just a simple wipe down since its not an actual damper. A linkage or even the old switch tech would change things more than a linear slider.
  • 1 1
 Essentially, they're using the two sliders to replace the rail type system they used to allow linear travel.. The upper link controls the amount of linear motion, upward/downward and also the shock curve.

Apparently, the rails they used developed play. This would appear to be intended to make it more reliable and easily serviced, with less play.. but as some pointed out, those seals need frequent attention to keep them in good shape.. The travel is short, so they wont get abused as much as say a fork seal, but still, I like my frame pivots to be a little more maintenance free. (thank you Santa Cruz for the labyrinth seals, Grease gun and zerk fittings for easy maintenance.. still running very smooth after several years of abuse! )
when the mechanically cleaner pivot based anti squat systems have patents on them, designers of other companies need to get creative to come up with something to set them apart.
  • 1 0
 Don't other companies that use the same wheel path just have specially made shocks to control the leverage curve. I've ridden a few: canfield, evil, giant, banshee. They all seem to be pretty dialed without the use of the "switch infinity" My evil uprising doesn't seem to be worse than this bike at all. The characteristics look to be exactly the same
  • 2 0
 nmpearson, The wheel path is based on the type of pivot or linkage used. different linkages cause different shock curves, so companies work to get a tune that better works with their linkage rates (how fast or slow the shock shaft moves at different points in the travel). This design is a way to get a wheel path that provides some anti-squat pedaling efficiency, while not using VPP or DW links. to me, it seems like a somewhat complicated work around.

 Their website says infinity switch is already patented design. The first switch version is still patent pending.

 Does it come with a special tool to clean out all the dirt and mud?

 This looks so good people might actually not care that it’s proprietary.

 And it's made by Fox. So if you ever have a problem with it, you might actually get it fixed within 6-9 months.

 They got my 36 rebuilt and upgraded under what I believe was expired warranty in under 2 weeks a year ago. Good customer service all around. My experience anyway.

 its hardly proprietary more like a part of the frame. thats like saying the rear triangle is proprietary

 It’s not at all like saying the rear triangle is proprietary. It was designed with Fox for Yeti and no other company (that I know of) has it. To me, that’s proprietary. Specialized has often done the same thing with Fox and no other companies use their designs. I imagine that if another company wanted to use it, they’d have to lease it form Yeti and/or Fox.
