Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Yeti SB140. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

15 reasons to buy

  • The Yeti SB140 is available in five sizes. It fits riders 4'11 to 6'7".
  • The Switch Infinity suspension offers 140 mm of travel in the rear. It is supportive. Bottom-outs are rare.
  • The SB140 is lighter than other bikes in its category.
  • The steep 77° effective seat tube angle and long reach place riders in a favorable climbing position.
  • The seat tube is short. This allows riders to use a longer dropper post on the bike.
  • There is room for a water bottle in the frame triangle on every size.
  • Internally routed cables give the bike a tidy appearance.
  • The cables are routed through sleeves in the frame. These make it easy to install cables.
  • Yeti offer builds with SRAM or Shimano groupsets. This allows riders to find a bike that suits their componentry preferences.
  • 170 mm cranks are shorter than the cranks on some competitors. This reduces the frequency of pedal strikes.
  • Wide 780 mm handlebars paired with a 50 mm stem place riders in a forward stance that encourages an active riding position as they maneuver the SB140.
  • Frame protection is included on the chainstay, seat-stay and downtube.
  • The Maxxis Minion DHF tire up front provides riders with excellent traction.
  • The WTB saddle is comfortable.
  • The SB140's frame comes with a lifetime warranty.

3 reasons not to buy

  • The Maxxis Rekon tire in the rear is low profile and sluggish. Experts would suggest swapping it for a faster rolling, knobbier tire.
  • Experts agree the SRAM G2 brakes are underpowered for heavier riders. They suggest adding larger rotors and upgrading to SRAM Code brakes.
  • Cable rattle was an annoyance, according to some testers.

Bottom line

The Yeti SB140 is an all-mountain bike that can conquer trail obstacles including roots, rocks and drops. It excels on enduro trails. It has 140 mm travel in the rear and 160 mm upfront. The Switch Infinity suspension setup is stable and supportive. The bars are wide for greater stability and control. There is room for a water bottle in the frame and the cables are internally routed. Some found they still rattled, despite being in sleeves. The stock SRAM G2 brakes are underpowered, according to some experts. Most experts agree that the Maxxis Rekon is a poor choice for a rear tire and suggested swapping it out.

2020 Yeti SB140 T2

The last bike in Yeti’s lineup to receive their latest and greatest tech is a mid-travel ripper. The 27.5-inch SB140 brings more capability to the table and replaces the SB5.

Bible Review: Yeti SB140 T2 Turq

The SB140 is sort of like those people who brands like Jose Cuervo hire to travel around the country instigating a good time—it’s a professional partier.
