A first test on a 2016 Plus-standard 27.5-inch bike – are we heading towards a(nother) revolution in mountainbiking?
We got to test the Process 153 Enduro/All-Mountain bike, fitted with 27.5-inch wheels, which is the lower-spec model of two sharing the same frame and travel. Three or four years ago we would you have used the word “Freeride” once or twice during the review, but Freeride is pretty much dead; indeed, have we already mentioned the word “Enduro”?
The SB4.5C – despite its name, which sounds like a library book calling number – is as far away from boring as one can get. It’s the third incarnation of elite American manufacturer Yeti’s superbike series (hence the SB). The 4.5 is the younger, cheekier 29-inch brother of the veteran, smaller-diameter SB5 and SB6.
