The Yeti SB130 link takes a well rounded bike and makes it even more capable, descending without compromising on pedaling. We have increased the progression from 15% to 25% to improve the bike’s small bump sensitivity and bottom out resistance. As a result, the bike descends much better than before. Most notably, its square edge performance is vastly improved.
To accompany the increase in progression, the SB130 link also increases travel to 135 mm. For those who feel that the SB150 is a little more than they want, but 130 mm doesn’t quite do it, this is the ticket. The fact that it doesn’t compromise the bike’s pedaling is just the icing on the cake!
Recommended Spring Rates
For air shocks we recommend using Yeti’s recommended pressures as a starting point and then adding pressure as you see fit.
|Rider Weight||Spring Rate||Preload|
|120 lbs (54.4 kg)||400||1 turn|
|140 lbs (63.5 kg)||450||1 turn|
|160 lbs (72.6 kg)||500||1 turn|
|180 lbs (81.8 kg)||550||1 turn|
|200 lbs (90.7 kg)||600||1 turn|
|220 lbs (99.8 kg)||650||1 turn|
*All spring rates are calculated for 30% sag assuming a 64% rear weight bias.
