You know how every good farmer has “just gotta have a truck”? Similarly, we believe every good mountain biker “just gotta have an all-round 29’er”. The SB4.5 is the answer. With 114 mm of travel conventional wisdom may say the proper home for the SB4.5 is the XC category. While there is no doubt that the bike is a goat (capable climber in the most challenging circumstances), the SB4.5 proves its versatility when you point it downhill. We carry the SB4.5 because well-managed rear suspension and best-in-class geometry can take a beating and still makes for the most plush 4.5” we’ve ridden.
