Hello 160E

The wait is over and Yeti have officially entered the ebike market after years in development, introducing the  Yeti 160E.  Whilst everyone was racing to make an ebike, Yeti were making an ebike to race. 

Their strapline ‘it took take, to make time’ comes from the desire of the  Yeti brand wanting to keep true to their patented Switch Infinity suspension system.  With the position of the motor they’ve had to develop the new Sixfinity suspension platform.

Whats Sixfinity?

A True Six-Bar Design. Fractions Of A Millimeter Difference In The Linkage Lengths And Pivot Placement Impacts Anti-Squat And Anti-Rise Characteristics. It’s Incredibly Complex. It Took A Half Decade To Refine The System. Unlike Many Other “Six-Bar Designs” Sixfinity Uses All Six Linkages To Control The Wheel Path.

Sixfinity 01

Sixfinity was born to accommodate the added power and mass of an e-MTB. To increase pedaling efficiency given how an e-MTB is actually ridden when ridden hard. And to increase traction for the kind of speed an e-MTB can really deliver, with the right kinematics. 

Sixfinity 02

As the suspension progresses through its travel, the Switch link rotates up until it reaches the inflection point. It then “switches” directions and continues to rotate down – creating the unique anti-squat curves shown. 

Tunable Leverage Rate.

Every track is different. Every racer has their ride preferences. Sixfinity has an adjustable leverage rate progression that provides a dynamic range of suspension feel. All while preserving geometry, anti-squat and anti-rise characteristics, and only a minute impact to wheel travel at +/-2mm.
