Yeti SB66 Carbon Awarded

If you’ve had a chance to ride the game-changing SB66 Carbon, you’re already in on the secret:

2012 SB66C yeti

this is a serious all-mountain machine with 6-inches of amazing bump absorption, dialed geometry, and incredibly efficient pedaling performance. If you haven’t ridden one yet, you don’t have to take our word for it – check out these glowing reviews the press has been giving the 66C lately. With a weight that’s lighter than most of our competition’s 4- and 5-inch travel bikes and strength that’s on par with a freeride machine, it’s no wonder the media has been lining up for test rides.

If you’re ready for your own test ride, contact your Yeti dealer today.

This is going to be my next bike. I got the chance to demo one of these babies last summer in Colorado. It gives you great “travel” for the rough terrains and amazing agility to stay on those tight single tracks.

Know Before You Go: Avoid this trail during early summer when wet sensitive soil can be easily damaged by bikes. It should also be avoided after big rain storms. Anticipate other bikers, hikers and heavy guided equestrian traffic on this popular trail. Expect to yield and use cation around blind corners, especially when descending. Much of this ride is above timberline; be prepared for rapidly changing weather.kokomo pass by unmarth

Parking: Drive west on I-70, taking exit 195 for Copper Mountain. Turn left at Copper Road past the Conoco and the Sewer Waste water Treatment plant to the parking area at the end of the road.

Description: Acess the paved recpath from the parking lot. Immediately after crossing the wooden bridge take a right across the concrete bridge onto the old railroad grade. Follow this for half a mile until it intersects the Colorado Trail. Take a right across the old stock bridge. Follow the Colorado Trail Markers on your left to Hwy 91. Cross Hwy 91 and continue to follow the trail markers to Copper Mountain Village. Continue to follow the Colorado Trail across the face of Copper Mountain until you cross Guller Creek, then bear left. Soon the drainage widens and provides amazing views of Elk Ridge. Climb through a series of switch backs to timberline. The trail curves left above Janet’s Cabin. Switchback upward through the tundra. Remain on the designated trail to avoid damage to the fragile soil. Reach Searle Pass at 6.5 miles after a final rocky pitch (expect to walk). To continue to Kokomo Pass, veer right and traverse upward along Elk Ridge. Several switchbacks bring you to the high point. The ridge ends here since Kokomo Pass is actually below this point.

Return as you came. Please control your speed on this fast descent to avoid skidding and damaging the trail, and anticipate other trail users on blind corners.
