Because they wanted to do it right. That's why Yeti Cycles are only now coming up with the 160E. They don't like half-measures. So Yeti took their time and built the 160E on a completely redesigned kinematics.
May Yeti Cycles introduce: SIXFINITY™. A superior system with unlimited possibilities. All details perfectly optimized for pure e-bike use. The time they invested, you save when it counts.
SIXFINITY™ is a completely new and specifically for e-bikes developed and patented rear end concept with 6-link rear end. The lower linkage changes its direction of movement over the course of the suspension travel, just like the current Switch Infinity. With SIXFINITY™ Yeti are able to adjust all kinematic factors independently specifically to the weight and dynamics of e-bikes.
As with the current Switch Infinity, the new SIXFINITY™ Switch Link initially rotates upwards for maximum pedaling efficiency until it changes direction at the turning point. From mid-travel onwards, it thus moves downwards, releasing the full potential of the rear triangle and providing the unique anti-squat curve.
**Contrary to the picture, the Yeti SB160E C1 is delivered with a Hope Fortus wheelset instead of the pictured DT Swiss E1900 wheelset.**
