The SB150 has progressive enduro inspired geometry. We took what we learned from the SB6 and our Factory team riders and made it low, slack, and long. It is designed for shorter fork offsets, we slackened the "real" headangle and made the seatube angle way steeper. The reach is also longer with shorter chainstays. What does this mean? All these elements increase the DH prowess and move the rider forward on the bike. But these advantages are not one sided. The steeper seat angle, short fork offset, and forward riding position also keeps the front wheel on the ground, the power to the pedals and the steering quick and nimble when climbing.
The patent pending wishbone shock extender was developed to maintain a linear path on the leverage ratio while making the curve 15% more progressive. This gave the Switch Infinity suspension more control in the mid-stoke while keeping the small bump supple. It also allows for more shock clearance and allows for ease of access for shock fitting and replacement.
New Water Bottle Location
The water bottle fits comfortably inside the front triangle, where you might be used to looking for it. It took considerable effort to accommodate a bottle, optimize stand-over and meet our kinematic expectations, but we knew it was important to you. So we finally did it.
The SB100 employs an integrated headset which allows for a lower overall stack height and cleaner carbon layup. The cleaner carbon layup means there are no aluminum inserts and less material in the headset juncture. This all leads to a lighter, stronger front triangle.
Internal routing Internally tunneled cable routing allows for clean lines and a quiet, rattle-free ride. It also makes servicing your bike quick and easy.
