Qualifies for BC BIKE REBATE!
A lot happens during the course of a half-decade long development cycle. The 160E is Yeti's most ambitious project yet.
The Yeti 160E was developed to be a class-leading endurance racing eBike. With the introduction of the EWS-E in the Endurance World Series, Yeti was one of the first to put their attention into a race-focused eMTB. The 160E took five years of development, including six prototypes, different mold iterations, and more. This unique machine is made with a special suspension to accommodate the extra weight of an eBike, a lightweight carbon frame, a powerful motor, and much more. The result is more speed, stability, and fun on difficult endurance terrain. The Yeti 160E is a race bike with an extra kick.
To create a professional-level race eBike, Yeti had to alter the suspension of the 160E to make it perfect for the extra weight of an eBike. Sixfinity Technology helps increase the pedaling efficiency of an e-MTB by accounting for that extra weight and extra power. It brings out the stability and performance an eMTB can have with proper kinematics. A switch link rotates up until it reaches an inflection point then changes direction to rotate down creating a unique anti-squat curve for a bottomless feeling. The leverage rate has adjustable settings that range from the most efficient to speed for the most plush and comfortable on rough terrain. This version of the 160E is equipped with a Fox Factory Float X2 suspension for an elite 160mm of travel at the rear. It is matched at the front with its Fox Factory 38 Grip fork for 170mm of front travel. The Yeti SB160E is tuned to perform not just as an endurance bike, but as an eBike as well.
The main goal of the Yeti 160E is speed and that comes with the help of its Shimano EP8 Motor. It complies with the 25 km/h limit and works with racers to push the pace. This high-level drive unit is powered by a semi-integrated battery that is easy to charge and delivers constant power. With the help of Shimano E-Tube, you can personalize your assist modes and integrate your bike with your GPS or smartphone. Speed also comes from the lightweight TURQ carbon fiber frame. This is the lightest material Yeti has and is used on their professional-level race bike. A powerful drive unit combined with a race-ready frame makes the 160E one of the fastest endurance bikes out there.
Like all of Yeti’s high-end bikes, the 160E features a unique geometry and excellent integration. Using Sixfinity allowed Yeti to shorten the chainstays on the 160E, allowing you to maintain a nimble feel and handle the bike with ease without having to resort to smaller wheels. The bottom bracket is slightly higher and pairs with shorter cranks to provide more pedal strokes. Cables route internally and essentially eliminate rattling. A chain slap protector results in near-silent function. Its cable management system can accommodate wireless, cables, and moto brake setups. This version is equipped with an affordable Shimano SLX 12-speed groupset along with DT Swiss H1900 wheels for performance setup. The Yeti 160E is a race bike and an eBike all in one.
