Exclusive: First look at the new Yeti SB6c

You certainly could not miss this striking bike as you walked past the Yeti stand at Eurobike, fresh with a brand new colourscheme. Taking pride of place at the front of the booth was the eagerly awaited Yeti SB6c, although already seen in prototype form under Jared Graves at the last EWS, the bike is ready for production and will be shipping in October.

This is Jared Graves bike for tearing up the Enduro World Series and the purposeful geometry of the bike shows it has been built to take on the toughest trails. With a 65.5 degree head angle and burly build, this bike is built to be pointed downhill, fast, but Yeti also claim that the new Switch Infinity Platform, and 27.5lb weight make it a nimble climber. With 157mm of travel the SB6c will be priced at £5995 (€7190) without the ENVE upgrade and will be available from October.
