Yeti, instead of admitting that they made the SB6c too light and frail for its intended use, have released a harder hitting "Enduro" version of what was previously their enduro race bike. With identical geometry but a carbon layup that's now 200g heavier, "the SB6 Enduro is begging to get out on your next park, gravity or backcountry adventure". Remind me what the SB6c was marketed for?

Maybe people will stop going through front and rear triangles faster than front and rear tires.

"The SB6c was built to excel on the toughest enduro tracks in the world and has earned an EWS World Championship title under factory rider Richie Rude. Although it screams gravity, this bike is light, pedals well, and is tons of fun on the lifts or grinding out big days in the backcountry."

totes different lol

It like they got the intern to reword the previous description but keep all the buzzwords

So if you bought one from a NZ shop, you could use the CGA "fit for purpose" clause to update your frame...

If you broke it, for sure. I love NZ's consumer protection laws. The SB6 is a dentist bike through and through, up there with the s-works enduro and nomad CC. Perhaps they never expected the original owners to ever ride it enough to discover the weak bits ;)

They do look like dentist bikes, but you see them around - and dirty - in Welly.

Sounds like they are just doing what Santa Cruz does with a C and CC model.

Yeah true, didn't see how much cheaper it was, just figured it was burlier. Wonder if it's just as breaky.

I've had an SB6 worth of dental work for next week cancelled cause my dentist has a broken collar bone on one side and thumb on the other, I thought mountain biking but then found out skiing.

I got a case of "skiers thumb" in wanaka... Caused by mountain biking.

(also known as goalkeepers thumb - pole/handlebar/ball pushes thumb back, detaching or breaking ulnar collateral ligament)

Sounds like my normal A&E visits, it's the flat wide bits that put me in the ambulance.

The thumb I thought was a sprain.
