Born from a desire to make a pure 29er 5’’ travel trail bike that rails turns and maintains the agility of it’s 26-inch counterpart, the SB95 is a true head-turner. Utilizing the same Switch Technology found on the SB-66 to create a headscratching combination of crisp pedaling and efficient bump absorption, the SB-95 also solves most of the problems inherent in other 29er full suspension designs . . . namely, long chain stays, poor tire clearance, and tall top tubes. The Switch’s design and unique wheel path allows for shorter chain stays and loads of tire clearance. Similarly, the compact assembly of the Switch mechanism permits a low-slung top tube and stand over clearance that would put a smile on Danny DeVito’s face.
And the beauty of the SB95 is that all the positive attributes of a 29er are perfectly maintained, even amplified. You’ll carry speed over potholes, hold your momentum through the rough stuff, and maintain traction on loose terrain. It feels like a 3” bike going uphill and a 6” bike coming back down.
Designed with a murderer’s row of standard features (inset tapered headtube, thru-axle compatibility, cable stays for a dropper seat post, oversized pivots and fully sealed bearings), the SB95 won’t leave you wanting for upgrades
